Wall panels are a bright and luxurious solution. These products are designed to transform a boring wall into a unique part of the interior. There are unlimited design possibilities: upholstery by fabric or leather, mirrored panels, and the use of inserts made of stainless steel will not leave you indifferent. Wall panels can also be used to finish the ceiling, arched structures or columns.
Wall panels, depending on the size and shape, can be of two types: leaf and inlaid. Sheet panels have fewer finishing junctions; inlaid panels can be different sizes and shapes. Very often, when decorating the walls or ceiling, panels are used in the same size and shape: the junction between the panels can be both horizontal and vertical. The main materials for these products are: chipboard, MDF or natural wood. These materials are the foundation, you can put decorative surface on it, for example, veneer.
The main feature of the wall panels is that they should be used in combination with other home furnishings. Not long ago, the wall panels combined mainly with furniture, whether it is cabinet, desk, or anything else. Since invisible door was launched, it would be logical and attractive to combine the finishing wall with an invisible door; the absence of casing creates the visual effect of a “single wall”.
Wall panels can be made of different materials; the main types of panels are wall panels made of MDF covered with various materials such as veneer, paint, or sheets of glass or mirror. Panels can be mounted in different ways, depending on the state and technical assignment of the wall.
TYPES OF LEAVES
Painted wall panels are made of moisture-resistant MDF of different thicknesses, depending on the customer’s preferences and characteristics of the premises in which they are mounted. Once the panel size is calibrated, panels are applied to the wall, after which the panels can be painted in the color you want.
Finishing with the use of mirrors or glass recently become very popular; mirror or glass wall panels are a unique and modern solution for you. For the production of this type of panels manufacturers use substrate from moisture-resistant MDF, which is glued the front part (glass or mirror). Each panel is calibrated to the space and their sharp edges are sanded smooth. Decorative relief can be applied on the glass or mirror by means of sandblasting drawing, printing or engraving.
If you choose wall panels, the most popular solution is veneered wall panels. They are made of MDF sheets under the veneer, thus panels with veneer perfectly match our hidden doors. The hidden door in combination with wall panels, veneered, turns your wall into an exclusive interior element.
Methods of mounting of wall panels
- Mounting wall panels with profile
In this type of mount, we use aluminum strips, in which panels are joined together and fastened to the wall. The main advantage of this method of mounting is that the panels are placed at the minimum possible distance from the wall. Additionally, this method of mounting is one of the most simple, and easy dismantling makes this method the most flexible.
- Mounting directly on the wall
In this case, panels are mounted only on the flat surface, the substrate must be prepared and aligned. Panels are fixed to the wall using special fasteners and screws or with glue. This method of mounting makes it hard to disassemble the panel; moreover, the wall must be perfectly flat, and therefore this type of mounting of wall panels is considered difficult.
- Mounting on an adjustable wooden frame
In case of significant irregularities walls we use method of mounting with wall panels on a adjustable wooden frame. The only drawback of this method is that the panels are distancing themselves from the wall at a distance, which is not always acceptable.
- Mounting with wooden guide rail
This method is used with a relatively smooth walls with irregularities up to 1 mm per meter, or in cases where the wall material (such as brick or concrete) does not allow us to mount a panel directly on the wall. In this process, a guide rail is attached to the wall to support the panels, and the panels are mounted directly on the guide rails.
