Wood Wall Panelling for Gardens

Wood wall panels aren’t only for indoor use. Wood cladding instantly gives any space a rustic, earthy feel – making it an ideal choice for your garden. Slat wood panelling can be more than your fence, too. You can create unique barriers between your garden and your neighbour’s, or segment your own garden into distinct areas. 

Wood garden cladding also looks great in outdoor kitchens or as a bold landscaping feature. Choose from our wide range of finished styles to match any garden theme, including contemporary, traditional, playful, or organic styles.

FAQs & Fitting Help

How do you install wood wall panelling sheets?

Installing wood wall panels might sound like a big chore, but it’s not as complicated as it might seem. Keep in mind that the process will differ depending on which type of panels you buy. This is a guide to installing our Reclaimed Wood Panels, or other similar panels. The process for Acupanel and our peel and stick panelling will differ.

To install your wood wall panels, you first need to prep your walls. You should use adhesive to stick your panels on before nailing them into place. But adhesive will only work on un-wallpapered, dry, sound walls. So make sure your walls are the following:

  1. Sturdy enough to support wooden panels
  2. Clean from debris; use a dry cloth to wipe away any dust
  3. Free from trim around doorways, windows, etc.; remove trim and skirting boards before starting
  4. Free from outlet covers and switch plates

You should also acclimate your wooden panels by leaving them in the room for a few days. The wood will adjust to humidity and temperature levels this way. If you want to better hide the joints between the panels, you should also paint or stain your walls a color similar to your wood sheets before applying them.

Before cutting any of your wood panelling, lay out your sheets on the floor for a preview. Once you’re satisfied with your wood panelling design, you can start applying! You’ll need a caulking gun loaded with panel adhesive. Place dollops of adhesive on the wall, spaced 10 inches apart.

Then, put your panels in place on the wall, against the adhesive. Pull the panel away from the wall a bit to make the adhesive tackier, then push it back into place with a rolling pin. To finish, drive nails into place at the top of the panel and put the skirting boards back in place to secure the bottom.

How do you calculate the coverage for your panelling

How much wood wall panelling do you need for your DIY project? That depends on the nature of your project! Wooden sheets come in many styles and sizes, so you’ll have to add up how much you need once you’ve chosen your wall panelling design. You should also always purchase about 10 percent more wall panelling than you think you’ll need, to err on the side of caution.

For some wall panelling, like tongue and groove, you need to calculate the total area of coverage. For other panelling sheets, you just need the width of your wall. We also recommend spacing your wood panels apart evenly. Width between panelling sheets should be about 600mm. You need space in between panels in case the wood expands or retracts in higher or lower temperatures.

You can also measure windows and doors and subtract those dimensions from your overall count. Or you could leave them in, to ensure you have that extra 10 percent of wood panelling. You never know if something will go wrong!

Can I order a sample of panelling?

Yes! All samples are sized approximately 12cm x 10cm and are available for between £1 - £4.95. You can choose from our Reclaimed and Weathered Wall Panels, TimberStik Peel and Stick Wood Panels, or Acupanel Acoustic Wood Panels.

See our Samples page or our Acupanel pages to order samples. Ordering samples is the perfect way to see how our wood panelling will fit in your design scheme.

What are the best wood wall panels for bedrooms?

All of our wood wall panelling is suitable for bedrooms. The best choice for your bedroom will depend on your needs and overall design. Go for our Reclaimed Wood Panels for something rustic, TimberStik Peel and Stick Panels for no-hassle installation, or Acupanel for sound absorption and a modern feel.

Many of our customers choose Acupanel Acoustic Wood Wall Panels for their bedrooms. The sound-absorbing properties are ideal for when you want to relax or just get a good night’s sleep!

What preparation is needed before fitting the sheets?

For most of our products, we recommend you remove the panels from their packaging and let them acclimate to the room you’ll be installing them in.

This ensures that they’ll adapt to temperature and humidity changes after they’re fitted on your walls. We also recommend cleaning your walls or surfaces with a dry cloth to remove any dust or debris.
