Trending Decorative Wall Boarding Panel Types
The most popular wall panel types are below:
Shiplap Decorative Wall Boarding
This one is a very modern and trending type these days. Normally, shiplap was used for the exterior of buildings, but by the time, it became very popular for interior wall boarding. Shiplap seems like consisting of horizontal grooves. These grooves are the joints of boards. These boards are strongly sealed together in order to provide weatherproofness.
Shiplap is very proper for modern designs. But is very hard for cleaning and keep clean because of the grooves. So it will require more time for cleaning. And it is very important to install correctly otherwise, it can cause rotting decaying in time. Even though there are these cons, shiplap is a very decorative and fancy wall boarding.
Tongue and Groove Decorative Wall Boarding
This type is similar to shiplap but there is a difference in connecting. In shiplap, rabbets are used to provide connections. But in this style, paneling requires a kind of groove and tongue connection. By this, we mean combining panels together in a secure way.
Actually, this style of connection has long been used in carpentry. The biggest benefit of the tongue and groove is cleaning. This style is very successful in keeping the dust and dirt out. So cleaning of this style is easier and this is a positive way of this type.
In this style, we use planks in order to create aesthetic and rich wall panels. The best benefit of the plank is that you can use any kind of patterns; horizontal, vertical, diagonal, or even herringbone. Because planks are in any size and everything is up to your imagination.
You can use new or reclaimed wood for this wall paneling. MDF wallboard is a little bit cheaper for this, but it is up to your taste. Also, you can reduce costs by purchasing sheets and cutting them by yourself.
These are some of the most trending wallboard types of 2020. Of course, there are more other panel types that we will talk about in another post. BST Design Company is always following new trends and fashion about decoration styles. You can always reach us for any kind of questions and assistance.
