Wood Wall Panelling for Hallways

You don’t give much thought to your hallways – they’re just a conduit to pass through on your way somewhere more important. But hallways have a bigger impact on your design aesthetic than you might think. Some attention to small detail can go a long way. 

Wood panelling in a hallway shows off your style. By creating an eye-catching space that visitors and guests normally wouldn’t pay attention to, you make your home feel more comfortable. With high-quality wood panels from the Wood Veneer Hub, made only from sustainable resources, you can create that cosy feeling you’re after.

Colours, Finishes and Styles for Every Hallway

Is wood panelling modern enough to install in a hallway? If you update it with various colours and finishes, of course it is!

Our wide selection of wood wall cladding lets you choose the style that suits your home. Your hallway can look traditional with classic wood panelling, or you make it ultra-contemporary.

With our line of decorative interior wall panelling, you have countless options for transforming your hallway. You have your choice of colourways and don’t have to worry about staining or painting your panels when they arrive. We finish and seal them so all you have to do is install.

Wall Panelling Ideas for Hallways

Coming up with a theme for a hallway should be easy, right? Sometimes, small rooms are harder to decorate than large ones – especially if that room isn’t really a room at all.

Stunning wood panels can breathe life and character into a space people are only meant to pass through. Looking for inspiration? See our wall panelling ideas for hallways.

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 hallways?

All of our wood wall cladding is suitable for interior use, including hallways. The Plaank Reclaimed Wood Panels look great in hallways or smaller rooms because they help create ambiance.

Any of our wood panel products would work well in hallways, though. The best choice will depend on your style.

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.

Do you have non-acoustic Acupanel panels?

Yes! Our popular Acupanel wood panels are available with or without sound-absorption properties. The non-acoustic panels closely resemble the acoustic ones, with the same superior craftsmanship and finish.

They’re also available in all the same colours as the acoustic panels. Non-acoustic panels are a cost-effective solution for those who want the same Acupanel flair but have no need for sound-absorption.
