Panelling is a wonderful way to add character to a plain room. There are many different styles that work to add texture and depth and can really transform the mood and atmosphere. You can introduce framed panelling to give a grander mood or tongue and groove style panelling for a more rustic or cosy atmosphere.
Panels can also be added to doors – we created panelling on a bank of built-in cupboards which layers on another level of detail. Installing coving and cornices is also something on my list of things to do – coving frames walls beautifully and allows for a further visual dimension.
Finally, changing small details such as handles, socket and light fixtures works wonders – we added brass cup handles onto our kitchen cabinets and it immediately gave the space a sense of history.
