Installing living room panelling ideas is a great way to add an extra dimension to the space in which you kick back and relax in. The design can be personalised to suit the shape and size of any living room, large or small — from full-height cladding to modern painted accents. 

Don't let your living room be underserved by not properly considering how you use the space and how to maximise its potential with this style. Wall panelling ideas can be used to conceal insulation, hide existing damages or dents to the plasterwork or protect walls from new damage by little ones and pets.
