Panels in the interior: a variety of options for creating the original design (27 photos)


A decade ago, the market of finishing materials for the walls did not differ by a wide range of different textures. The owners of city apartments and country houses had only a few ways: painting and sticking wallpaper. Fortunately, there are now a huge number of solutions for creating a spectacular and sophisticated design, and wall panels in the interior are considered to be one of the absolute trends of 2019.




If you have recently become the happy owner of a city apartment or a country house or are dreaming of renovating an existing situation, decorative panels for walls will be the best solution for you. A few years ago, this type of decoration was very popular among office space owners. Now they are actively used to create interiors for a bathroom, toilet, corridor, living room, kitchen and even a bedroom. Modern wall panels have a large number of shades and textures, are inexpensive and are made from both natural and synthetic raw materials. But the main advantage of decorative panels for the decoration of residential premises is the fact that their installation can be performed independently without the involvement of third-party building organizations. In addition, they are mounted on any surface, carefully hiding their flaws.




Modern designers this year are increasingly using 3D panels in the interior. The volume of images and surprisingly deep texture perfectly complements the design of any stylistic orientation. They are actively used even when creating a situation in the bathroom and toilet.

Types and types of wall panels

All types of this finishing material differ from each other in shape, size, as well as manufacturing technology and installation features, so it is advisable to say that the appearance of the interior depends entirely on the options chosen.



Pinion Panel

As you may have guessed, the appearance of this material is a collection of long strips (standard size - 2.4-3.7 meters) about 30 centimeters wide and no more than 12 mm thick. Because of their size, they became in demand when creating the interiors of hallways, kitchen areas, bathrooms and toilets. In general, they are used where the room being processed has a small area and a large number of corners. To install these panels, it is necessary to prepare the facing surface, fixing a sheathing of metal or wood on it. For connection of products special brackets and the construction stapler are used. Sometimes you can do with screws. Rack panels are made of a chipboard, DVP, PVC. MDF panels in the interior look very stylish and interesting. Some manufacturers add special accessories to the kit to help hide the joints.




Light wood panels in the interior are able to create a favorable optical illusion of freedom of space. Pastel and white colors push the boundaries and make the room more spacious. To enhance the effect, you can install the panel on the ceiling.

Tiled Wall Panels

From the name it is clear that these products have the shape of a square. The size of the tiles can be any - the length of one side sometimes reaches 100 centimeters. They are mounted on the wall of the bathroom, living room or kitchen with the help of a clamp. The connecting element protrude grooves with inserts.

If you buy tiles of different designs and make one single design of one of the walls of the room, you will get a very interesting and original version, which will greatly revive the situation in a classic style.

By the way, the panels under the tree in the interior look elegant, if you arrange them at different angles and build several levels of them. If we add several elements of light panels to them, the wall will gain volume and it will be advantageous to stand out against the background of the overall picture.

Sheet panels

Of all the types described above, they are the largest. The most common material is fiberboard and PVC. The sheets have a complex multi-layered structure, and on the surface are created fancy patterns, interesting patterns, imitation of bricks, natural stone, wood and even the skin of reptiles. The panels are attached to the wall with special glue, and the seams are filled with molding. The main advantage of the finish is the possibility of coating the lining of large surfaces.




Choosing materials

Currently, the production of wall panels uses various types of raw materials from plastic and polyvinyl chloride to cork and glass. Naturally, the cost of the tile depends on what materials they are made of.

Not only the aesthetic component of the interior, but also the well-being of the inhabitants of the house depends on the choice of certain products!


This natural material of natural origin has long been used for interior decoration of spacious cottages and close city apartments. Its mad popularity is caused, rather, not by excellent external characteristics, but by environmental cleanliness and safety. The panels are made of linden, maple, bamboo, cedar and oak. A paneled room not only looks perfect, but also breathes, that is, there is a continuous air circulation in it.




It should be understood that natural wood has a rather capricious character. It does not tolerate neighborhoods with moisture, so they are not recommended to use them in the bathroom, toilet or kitchen. It absorbs all the moisture that is deposited on the surface, and when it dries it cracks and becomes porous. Some owners of country houses cover the panels with a special varnish, but even he is unlikely to be able to withstand the negative effects of the environment for a long time. Also a significant drawback is the relatively high cost of this type of lining.

Modern designers are all the time trying to look for new ways to decorate the interior with wooden products, combining them with mirror panels or panels with soft surfaces.


The imperfection of this type of sheet panels is more than compensated for by its low cost. Low cost is caused by the use of waste wood production. At the same time, their appearance sometimes does not look very respectable, therefore laminated panels are more often used for interior decoration. With this technology, manufacturers achieve a variety of color and texture solutions.

Look great panels with plastic coating. They can imitate brick, stone, wood and even vegetable compositions. If they are combined with mirror or cork panels, they can be a worthy decoration of the living room and bedroom.



MDF panels for walls

This material has a low density and low weight. It is moisture resistant, fireproof, resistant to aggressive environments.


Plastic panels have a fairly extensive color palette and a diverse design. In addition to ease of installation and the presence of high-tech properties, PVC panels have another undoubted advantage - low cost.

It is from plastic that modern and incredibly popular 3D panels are created. These plastic panels are characterized by volume and variety of forms, and therefore are considered the absolute trend of 2019.

Mirror Panels

As you may have guessed, they consist of reflective glass surfaces, but they are used only as auxiliary elements. They are perfectly combined with plaster, plastic, cork and MDF panels for walls.





This material is used in the design not so long ago, but has already managed to establish itself from the best side. Usually they decorate one single wall in order to focus attention on a specific area of ​​the room. Such beauty is not affordable for everyone, and therefore it is extremely rare.

Gypsum vinyl

Incredibly durable and resistant to external influences material. Previously, it was actively used in decorating offices, and now it has safely migrated to houses and apartments. Low cost and high characteristics of strength and durability make it accessible to the majority of our compatriots.

3D panels for interior walls

This type of panels appeared on the building materials market of our country relatively recently, but has already managed to take a leading position in sales in almost all regions of our vast country. Look great 3D panels in the interior of the kitchen. They are based on gypsum, and the following layers are made of plasterboard, plastic or PVC film.




Some products manufacturers obtyagivayut natural or artificial leather, cloth, plain enamel or veneer. Such 3d panels in the interior of the bedroom create an incredible atmosphere of comfort and warmth of the home.

Whatever panels you choose, such a finish will always look respectable and luxurious. But if you want not to return to the issue of repair for another 7-10 years, we recommend paying attention to products made from natural material.
