Prefinished wood paneling is perfect for bringing out the best in your interiors and is surprisingly easy to install and maintain.
Prefinished wood panels don’t require any significant maintenance, and they’re actually easier to care for than other common materials, such as painted drywall. Best of all, timber paneling is extremely resilient to damage, so no matter how busy or crazy your household might get, you won’t have to worry about unsightly blemishes like you would with less durable materials. Paneling is also versatile, and you can achieve a classic or contemporary look, depending on the interior design that you are looking for.
If you’re getting ready to install prefinished wood paneling, then learning some more about the benefits, along with some care tips, will help you to get the most out of your investment.
Advantages of Using Interior Pine Siding in Your Home
- Cedar and pine paneling from The Woodworker’s Shoppe is created from sustainably harvested timber, and because the materials last so long in your home, you’ll reduce your overall carbon footprint.
- Our prefinished wood paneling is easy to install and makes for a great DIY job to improve your home. Our interior pine siding uses tongue and groove along the lengths of each panel, but we go a step further to provide tongue and groove end matching. This makes installation easier, with less material waste.
- Paneling allows for creative design choices. Whether you want to cover all of the walls in the room, create a feature wall, or even if you want to create a half paneling look by covering the lower section of your walls, you’ll find that paneling is extremely versatile.
- Paneling lasts for years because it is extremely durable. Our prefinished wood paneling won’t rot, it’s stable in a wide range of environmental conditions, and it resists impacts that would leave standard drywall in a crumbled mess. Our pine and cedar panels are so durable that they’re even used in commercial installations.
Regular Cleaning for Impressive Interior Pine Siding
Basic maintenance requires that you keep your walls free of debris and dust. A soft damp cloth can work wonders when cleaning your walls, or you could even use a special static cloth that is designed to pick up particles as you wipe the walls.
For textured walls or even interior siding with a deep profile, you could carefully use a vacuum cleaner with a hose and soft brush attachment. Work along any grooves to pick up dust and debris, and finish off the job with a damp cloth or static cloth.
Keep in mind that prefinished paneling will take much longer to show grime buildup, especially when compared to drywall, painted walls, or adhesive wallpaper. Cleaning your prefinished wood paneling at least twice a year will ensure that a hidden layer of dust and grime is prevented in your home.
