Adding MDF wall panelling

Home-Dzine reader, Donavan Packaree, transformed his living room with wall panelling, moulding and trim for a dramatic and affordable makeover.



Using instructions found on the Home-Dzine website, Donavan used MDF to create faux panelling around the bottom of the walls in his living room. Installing panelling is not difficult if you take the time to prepare beforehand.

Measure up and work out the placing and sizing and then pop along to your local Builders Warehouse to have everything cut to the exact sizes.


Donavan also added moulding and trim around the large windows in the living room, and also to create a feature above the window.

All you need to create this type of detailing is to have MDF cut to size to create a box frame or pelmet and then add moulding and trim as required.
