The Benefits of Using Wood Wall Panelling

This post is part of Plyco’s Guide to Wall Panelling.

It’s nice to have specific plywood and MDF products for specific uses, like Plyco offers with its Wood Wall Panelling collection. It makes it obvious for those who aren’t particularly well-versed in wall panelling circles to identify which products will suit their needs.

If you’re well-informed and have brushed up on your timber wall panelling knowledge, you might also know that Plyco stocks a number of other plywood products that can be used for wall cladding despite not being a dedicated product. Naturally, this might spark some curiosity. Why should I choose a dedicated timber cladding product over the other options available?

In this instalment of Plyco’s Guide to Wood Wall Panelling, we’ll give you a rundown of all the benefits you gain by using a specialised Wood Wall Panelling product.

A major reason why a large number of people choose wood wall paneling is due to this incredible benefit. Wood is a natural insulator and quite good at preventing heat from leaking out and cold from entering in.

It can play a great role in keeping your property cool during the hot season and warm during the cold weather. As a result, you will get to save energy and battle reduced energy bills. This makes investing in timber wall panels products a wise idea.

For exterior cladding, Shadowclad is the Gold Standard with this feature.

Wood panels offer enhanced acoustics as they're good at insulating sound. This makes timber wall cladding a great option for people looking for some privacy and peace.

A large number of commercial clients also opt for wood panels for the same reason. Talk to us today if you are interested in a soundproof room. Our sales team can help you pick the right option according to your requirements!

Wood panels are quite durable and can last for a good amount of time based on the material, craftsmanship, and care provided to the panels.

Cedar is said to be the most durable option. It's good for up to 30 years. On the other hand, spruce lasts around 6 to 7 years and pine lasts for up to 12 years.

Remember that it is all about selecting the right provider, materials, and protection. A good way to increase the longevity of wooden panels is to opt for treated wood. It lasts longer and is easier to maintain.

A large number of people who come to us to purchase exterior timber wall cladding panels, white wood wall panels, or other types of decorative timber wall panels do so due to this benefit of wood wall panelling.

Wooden panels look rich and neat and can give your house a unique appearance. Moreover, you can select from a variety of types and designs to give your house a unique look. Wooden panels go well with all types of furniture and upholstery and can be used to brighten up dull rooms.

For a classic aesthetic, our new Pinoli and Radiata VJ100 products will provide a timeless sense of rustic warmth within your interior. For a more decorative look, whether it’s a bathroom or bedroom our stylish Easycraft collection is sure to inject a dash of timeless glamour. Both are available in a vast range of profiles and finishes that will satisfy your wildest design dreams.


Wood paneling is environmentally friendly, especially when compared to other options. It uses a biodegradable and renewable resource and does not pollute the environment.

This benefit of wood paneling might come as a surprise to some since trees have to be cut down to produce decorative timber wall panels.

If you’re concerned about the environment then let us inform you that the government and different bodies keep a strong eye on the industry to ensure it doesn’t affect the environment.

We were recently in the news for launching a sustainably sourced plywood project to support the surroundings. Providing sustainable products has long been one of our focuses at Plyco. We even offer some reclaimed wood options that are both stylish and cheap.

Wooden panels are easy to install. You will even find some great DIY ideas on the internet; however, we suggest that you hire professionals for the job as installing wooden panels on your own, without the right tool or experience, can result in unnecessary delays and issues.

If you decide to install the panels on your own then make sure to wear safety equipment, follow proper procedures, watch videos that clearly define the process, and follow the tips provided by the manufacturer.

easyvj-100-8Fast Installation

Timber lining boards are quick to install. Based on the type and size of your property, the job can be completed in 1 to 4 days. This means you will not have to worry about staying away from your property for too long. However, some rooms can be complicated, i.e.: if there are a lot of curves or angles.

It is important to discuss this factor when hiring a professional to install wood panels so that there are no issues later on.

These were some of the main benefits of wood panels. Ready to make a purchase? Head over to our Collections page and pick the option that fits your requirements and check our complete Wall Panelling guide for more.
