There are many types of decorative panels, which in most cases are characterized by high moisture resistance, heat resistance and sound insulation.

If you have not yet decided on a choice, then it is worth finding out some advantages of this wall covering technology. Decorative panels for interior walls perfectly hide all the bumps. This allows you to save when carrying out finishing works, namely on the alignment of the walls with plaster mixtures. This article will look at various options for decorative panels, which can be installed in the kitchen, bathroom, hallway, and even the living room.

Types and characteristics of decorative wall panels

Wall cladding panels, unlike other finishing materials, have many advantages. For their installation there is no need to level the base. In a short period of time it is possible to process a large area of ​​the wall. In the market they are represented by many different shapes, sizes, textures and colors. Thanks to this, you can choose exactly those panels that best fit the chosen style of the room.

There are three main types of decorative panels:

  1. Slatted.
  2. Leafy.
  3. Tiled.

Rack. Their fastening is carried out using special brackets. The width of the product can vary between 13.5-30 cm, length 0.9-3 m, and panel thickness 8-12 mm.

Tiled . The shape of the tile panel is square. The standard tile sizes are 30 * 30 and 90 * 90 cm.

Sheet . It resembles sheet plywood, on top of which drawing is applied. The thickness of such a panel ranges from 3 to 6 mm, and the dimensions are 1.22 * 2.44 m.

Decorative panels for interior walls Types of decorative panels

Different materials are used for their manufacture:

  • Polyvinyl chloride.
  • Fiberboard.
  • Chipboard.
  • MDF.
  • Cork.
  • Tree.
  • Plaster.
  • Fiberboard.

If we talk about the positive aspects of decorative panels, here we can highlight the following:

  • Quick and easy installation. When fixing wall panels there is no need to carry out preliminary preparation of the walls. For their installation it is enough to have nails, glue, wooden bars, a stapler and other fastening material.
  • Versatility. In addition to the decorative role, they can serve as heat insulation and sound insulation.
  • Easy to clean. It is enough from time to time to wipe the surface of the decorative panels with a damp cloth.
  • Savings. In contrast to the use of other finishing materials, wall cladding panels - economical option.
  • Design solutions. Decorative panels can be glued in different directions, for example, vertically, horizontally, diagonally, and even a diamond.
  • Durability. The surface of the panels is resistant to mechanical stress.

Wood panels

Decorative panels for facing solid wood walls are one of the popular finishes. Although there are many alternatives, this material does not lose demand. This is explained by the fact that it is environmentally friendly, and the texture of the tree conveys a special mood to others. Moreover, no material can successfully imitate the structure of wood.

Decorative panels for interior walls Wall decoration with decorative wood panels

They can be installed in almost any room: residential apartment, living room, restaurant, office. Plus, their installation is quite simple.

It is worth noting that the appearance depends on the method of processing the upper layer. There are several methods for processing decorative panels:

  1. Varnishing. Varnish allows wood to become more moisture resistant and have a more attractive appearance.
  2. Lamination. The surface of the wood is glossy, plus to this, it acquires additional protective properties.
  3. Veneering. The veneer of valuable breeds of natural wood is applied on the tree. Such panels have a beautiful appearance.

Connection method

There are two methods of fastening:

1st method - groove-comb. In this case, a tight docking of all elements is provided. Also, this connection method allows you to create a single picture.

2nd method - groove-groove. With this method of docking, the colors and jointing will not match.

Additionally wooden decorative panels are decorated with baseboards, slats and fillets.

Decorative panels for interior walls The use of decorative wood panels of different types of wood gives the room a refined look

Types of wood

For the manufacture of such panels, wood of such tree species is used: pine, cherry, beech, ash, spruce, cedar, alder, oak, maple. Each wood has its own unique texture. You can combine several types of wood in one panel, overlaying it in layers. For this, there is a special technique where layers of different wood types are securely fastened under high temperature and pressure.

Types and differences

Today there are several methods of making decorative wood panels, which are presented in the table:

Decorative panels for interior walls Multi-layer wooden panel

Multi-layer wooden panel is the most common . The top layer is made of expensive wood veneer, and the middle layer is made of less valuable wood. In appearance, they completely resemble solid wood.

Decorative panels for interior walls Glued wooden panel

The glued panel. Coniferous trees are used. With success copes with the damp atmosphere. There is no formation of fungi and mold.

Decorative panels for interior walls Glued veneer panel

Glued veneer panel. The product consists of several layers of thin veneer, which are glued together. To give the workpiece high strength, the layers are glued perpendicular to each other. Unlike a solid array, the cost of a glued panel is much lower. Most often, such a panel is used to finish the ceiling surface.

Decorative panels for interior walls Veneered from chipboard

Veneered from chipboard. The top layer is made of natural veneer, and the inner one is based on chipboard. The blanks are heavy, so they are rarely used.

Decorative panels for interior walls Solid array

Solid array. This is the most expensive material for decorative walls. Drawing and texture match the selected wood species.


  • Beautiful appearance.
  • Environmentally friendly material.
  • Contribute to heat saving.
  • Durability.
  • Easy installation.
  • Easy handling.
  • Possibility to hide certain communications.
  • After a while, you can repaint.

Among the shortcomings stands out:

  • Low level of moisture resistance.
  • High risk of fire.
  • High cost of decorative panel.

Panels made of MDF and chipboard

Material Chipboard and MDF differ in production technology. Unlike chipboard, MDF decorative panels are much better. This is explained by the use of high-quality binders in the production of MDF.

To make it easier to make a choice, taking into account all the characteristics of the material, we can compare MDF and particleboard with each other according to several criteria:


Comparison of hardboard and MDF


Chipboard uses harmful binder resins urea formaldehyde and phenol formaldehyde. Even in small quantities, they can adversely affect the human body. MDF panels, in turn, are made of natural materials.

Moisture resistance

As MDF and DSP are covered special water repellents. However, as a result of prolonged exposure to moisture, these materials begin to deteriorate. The only difference is that particleboard swells and deforms faster than MDF.


Chipboard surface is uneven and porous. Therefore, for its painting, it is necessary to pre-process it, clean it and pierce it. As for MDF panels, their surface already has a special coating, so they are ready for painting and other processing immediately.

Fire hazard

MDF has a low level of resistance to high temperature

Features of decorative panels MDF

MDF panels are obtained due to the method of dry pressing of sawdust. At the same time the material is processed under high pressure and temperature. To make the material very high quality and resistant to wear, carbamide resins are added to it.

Decorative panels for interior walls Laminated MDF panels

Panels, made of MDF, have the following advantages:

  • Easy installation.
  • Do not require special care during operation.
  • Before installation, there is no need to make serious surface preparation.The condition of the walls does not affect the quality of the finish.
  • Ability to mount panels in any direction: diagonal, across or along the wall.
  • After installation works, the sub-panel space can be used for laying communications, for example, electrical wires, the Internet and others.

There are 3 types of MDF panels:

  • Solid-pressed.
  • Laminated.
  • Moistureproof.

They differ in the method of production, technical characteristics and decorative properties. For example, solid pressed plates have a smooth surface on both sides. Laminated are characterized by the fact that the front surface is covered with a thin polymer film. Due to this, the resistance to mechanical stress, moisture, etc., increases. In this film can have a variety of colors and design.

As for moisture-resistant MDF panels, their production is carried out from a more dense material. The basis are high-quality wood. As a result, such panels are used for finishing baths, loggias, balconies and other rooms with a high level of humidity.

Decorative panels for interior walls MDF veneered panels

Decorative panels from MDF also differ in the design method of the front side:

  • Painted . The rough surface is treated with a special paint, which smoothes all irregularities and gives the product a glossy or matte appearance.
  • Glossy . The front side of the product is laminated with a transparent polymer film.
  • Veneered . Possess the texture of real wood. This effect is achieved by laying a thin veneer made of wood with a thickness of up to 3 mm on the MDF surface. You can use ash, oak and other tree species.

Features of decorative chipboard panels

Chipboard is produced by pressing chips that are mixed with thermosetting resins. Its main advantages:

  • Resistance to mechanical stress.
  • Strength.
  • Low sound and thermal insulation.
  • Easy handling.
  • Low cost.
  • Easy installation.

Decorative panels for interior walls Chipboard panels

Chipboard sheets are covered with veneer or laminated with special plastic. There are several types of them:

  • Matte surface . The design is applied under a natural stone, wood texture or textile.
  • Glossy surface . Design is applied under the imitation of wood, stone, tile, marble and even vegetable patterns. As the coating can be used a special finish film, varnished. It is scratch and abrasion resistant.

Also there are several types of decorative panels made of chipboard:


Panels are connected using thorn-groove technology, and fixed to the crate with nails. This finish will support the weight of hanging accessories, shelves and other products. Product dimensions vary within the following limits: thickness 12 mm, width 12.5-30 cm, length 2.4-3.7 m.


They are attached to the wall on a slatted frame with nails, self-tapping screws or using special glue. The dimensions of the decorative panel are in the range from 300 * 300 to 980 * 980 mm.


They are glued to the wall with special glue or screwed on the frame with screws. The thickness of the decorative sheet panel of chipboard is 6-8 mm, length - 1.22-2.44 m. In addition, the panels are finished with profiles, cornices, decorative corners and the like.


It is mainly used for arranging a kitchen apron. In its production, a moisture resistant board with a finishing coating of 6 to 12 mm is used. Given the peculiarity of the coating, the holes for outlets and other communications should be made very carefully.

Chipboard plates are produced with different markings and quality classification:

  • Е1. Such plates contain at least 10 g of free formaldehyde per 100 g of dry chipboard. Such indicators are allowed for the production of furniture in the nursery.
  • Y2. In such a material can be on 100 g of dry chipboard from 10 to 30 mg of free formaldehyde. In this case, the use of such plates for the production of furniture is prohibited.
  • Super E. The stove of this classification is ultra-safe. They are recommended to be used for decoration of residential premises, children's rooms and in the production of furniture.

Panels of Fiberboard

Fiberboard means - fibreboard. Its production is carried out on the basis of wood waste. Various components are necessarily added to the composition of the material.In appearance, resemble the usual pressed cardboard. There are 2 types of decorative fiberboard panels:

  1. Rigid.
  2. Soft.

Decorative panels for interior walls Fiberboard panels

Hard Fiberboard

Perfectly cope with mechanical stress and withstand abrasion. Based on such technical characteristics, they are mounted on the balcony, toilet and in the corridor.

The presence of a polymer film on the panel allows for wet cleaning, even using detergents with chlorine. Under the influence of ultraviolet rays the color of the panels does not change. Therefore, after a while, the fiberboard panels will remain unchanged.

Based on the design idea, decorative fiberboard panels can have a different coating: gloss, matte and textured.

Soft fiberboard

Visually, such panels are no different from hard ones. The difference in the methods of their production, as well as in technical characteristics. Their production is carried out exclusively from coniferous wood. Lignin, a special polymer composition, is used as a binder. This substance is extracted from the juice of resinous wood. Such panels are considered environmentally friendly.

Although this type of fiberboard is soft, it has excellent thermal and sound insulation properties. Panel thickness of 12 mm is equal to a wooden board of 450 mm.

The soft lining layer can be different:

  • Vinyl-like wallpaper.
  • A layer of natural reed or linseed.
  • Acrylic waterproof coating.

There is a great opportunity to choose any color, imitation and design of decorative fiberboard panels.

Installation is carried out in the following ways:

  • For fixing to the wall - special glue.
  • To the wooden crate - with staples and small studs.

1 method : on glue.

2 method : on screws or nails.

3 method : clips.

4 method : stapled.

As for the first technique, it is mainly used for mosaic PVC panels. Plus, this method of installation is considered the fastest and cheapest. In all other cases it is necessary to construct a metal or wooden frame. If a room with high humidity, wood should be treated with special compounds, however, it is recommended to assemble the metal frame.

Mosaic panels are often used to finish bathrooms. You can watch the prepared video about wall cladding with plastic wall panels in the bathroom:

The thickness of such a panel is about 1 mm. If there are columns in the interior of the room, then such bending panels will easily give them a finished look. They are used for finishing the ceiling, walls and work surfaces.

However, in the end part is chamfer. By rust is meant a decorative hollow. They are used to finish the ceiling / walls.

Mainly for walls, relief panels are used. In appearance, they resemble lining the cost of relief lining is much higher.

Choice of high-quality PVC panel

Given that a large number of low-quality materials have appeared on the market among PVC panels, it is important to know what to look for. Even expensive goods are not always the best. There are a number of requirements in this area, which are presented in the table:




It is believed that high-quality PVC panels should be at least 10 mm thick.

Decorative panels for interior walls Technical Parameters

It is known that that panel, which has a large thickness, is able to withstand a large load. If we are talking about finishing the ceiling, the thickness may be slightly less than 10 mm.

Face thickness

This indicator determines the ability of the panel to withstand a certain load. For example, it can prevent pushing, withstand mechanical stress, shock, and so on. Pay attention to the fact that if stiffening ribs are visible on the panel through the front side, this indicates its low quality. Therefore, it is not recommended to install it on the ceiling and, especially on the walls. However, many may be tempted by its low cost.

Stiffeners: stiffness, location, number

It's simple: the more will have a panel of ribs, the better quality it is. This also affects the resistance of the product to mechanical stress.

The distance between the stiffeners

There should be no more than 10 between the stiffeners in the panel mm If the distance is large, the risk of dent formation is very large. Accordingly, after installing such a panel, all dents will be clearly visible.


Special attention is paid to the method and quality of PVC panel dyeing. Some manufacturers do not add one or another pigment of color to the polymer mass. As a result, this can lead to the formation of scratches, which will be very visible. In addition, under the influence of ultraviolet rays, the color of the panel will fade.


Installation of PVC panels in a residential area requires compliance with safety regulations. Therefore, before buying, ask the seller to provide you with a certificate of quality. Some manufacturers use toxic substances in their production, which can adversely affect their health. It is worth noting that when unpacking the panel may have a specific smell. But if such a smell has a panel that has been used as a sample for some time - be careful!


The greater the number of stiffeners and the thickness of the front side, the more weight the PVC panel will have. If we talk about the standard weight, it fluctuates around 1.5 kg / m 2 . However, this is a conditional indicator, since much depends on the size and type of decorative panel.


Be sure to make sure that the connection method used in your chosen panel is reliable and qualitative.

Chalk availability

Quality panels should contain no more than 20% chalk. The higher the number, the greater the fragility of the material. Therefore, some unscrupulous manufacturers in order to save add this component more than necessary.

Checking the chalk content of a plastic panel is easy. Bend the corner of the panel slightly. If a crack or white strip appears, the amount of chalk exceeds the standard. If the panel is plastic, then you can buy it.


Try to give preference to proven manufacturers who have proven themselves on the positive side. Reviews in forums about this or that material will help you.

Gypsum panels

Gypsum decorative panels replace the gypsum stucco molding. Moreover, they completely replaced the stucco, as a similar method of finishing the surface is suitable exclusively for the classical design. The use of this material allows you to create grooved surfaces, giving a particular room a beautiful appearance.

Adjusting the size of the room

With the help of 3D panels you can create different effects, for example, visually expand the room or raise the ceiling.

Ability to combine with other materials

The advantage of 3D panels is the ability to combine with other types of cladding. Due to this, special plots, textures and color ranges are created.

Types of 3D panels

A wide variety of materials are used to make 3D wall panels. Each of them has its own technological features:

  • Gypsum. The material is relatively fragile. After installation, all joints are filled with a special putty. The surface of the panels can be painted in any color. If the humidity in the room is high, then it is not recommended to fasten the 3D panels to the walls. By itself, gypsum increases the heat and sound insulation properties of the wall.In addition, this material is not subject to burning, so they are often used when facing fireplaces.
