Woodchip wallpaper and tiles, well. But how about wood? Wall panels? Wood? No? Too old-fashioned? Not at all! You couldn’t even begin to see what wood can do today (before) yesterday. Especially since wall panels don’t necessarily have to be made of wood. According to last survey of top 10 construction companies in Harare. The name ‘wall panel’ alone – or in this sense also ‘ceiling panel’ – evokes such associations. However, such a panel can do much more than just panel.
The word panel comes from Low UK and means something like ‘panel’, so it is paneling. And as I said, for many people, wall panels are simple and traditional wooden panels. Rustic oak for the wall. I also like ash, beech, and cherry. Unfortunately, that is no longer entirely correct. On the one hand, there are wall panels made from (almost) all building materials that are acceptable for interior design. Glass, steel, concrete (ok, it’s pretty thin then), plastic – whatever. On the other hand, panels on walls (and ceilings) offer not only a (subjectively often) appealing look but also technical advantages over woodchip.
What happens, for example, when you have seen enough of a woodchip wallpaper? What if the paper-laminated sawdust pattern is undesirable at some point? Then the wallpaper has to come down before something new can be put on the wall (exception: you can plaster very well). Then the big swearing begins. Equipment is then purchased to roughen the woodchip in order to steam it off the wall. That costs time and nerves. The same is actually true when trying to get rid of tiles in chocolate brown, beige, green, or light blue. Although aren’t they modern again?
No matter. Panels are mostly nailed, stapled, or screwed to the wall. Whereby they are actually nailed, stapled, or screwed to a substructure. Dismantling is therefore much easier than with many other types of clothing, apart from the rarely used adhesives. A handyman with less than 3 thumbs can do it easily. If you don’t like the look of your wall anymore, you can easily attach a new one.
And assembly is really easy. A substructure made of wooden slats is screwed onto the wall as perpendicular as possible and without waves. The wall panels are then mounted on this. Finished. For panels with the structure or with joints, you should only think about the desired pattern before installing. Not only to keep the look appealing but also to minimize waste.
As far as the mentioned optics are concerned, there are even fewer limits to the appearance of the surface than to the material of the panels. Panels with a three-dimensional surface. Panels in wood look. Panels with a reflective surface. Decorative panels with tile patterns. Panels with woodchip wallpaper, why not? With the latter, however, one should remember that wood is a ‘living’ material. It changes its length with changes in temperature and humidity and should not be used in panel form as a base for wallpaper if wrinkles and bubbles are undesirable.
Other advantages of wall panels? If you put it on, you could dimension the substructure of panels accordingly and fill them with insulation. Panels with built-in internal insulation, so to speak. But you should pay attention to the correct materials and layer sequences in order not to have to regard the fight against mold as lost. In addition, sound insulation can also benefit from panels.
So according to top 10 construction companies in Zimbabwe if you do not attach great importance to monotony in your life and you have space in your apartment or house to make walls 5 cm thicker (that is to say: if you have enough living space), wall panels can be used in the future without much effort make a quick change of scenery possible.
