Russwood are currently seeing a high demand for interior wall cladding products which can be used in both commercial environments as well as domestic properties. We offer a wide range of material which is suitable for internal wall decoration. In this blog we’ll take a look at some of the best options for using interior wall cladding in your project.

Why choose timber?

Interior wall cladding products are proving to be a popular option due to their unique three dimensional effect and bold characteristics. Using wall cladding is a great way to introduce the warmth and texture of a timber material to a room where replacing the floor may be not be practical, making wall cladding ideal for renovation projects. Alternatively, if you are looking to transform a less interesting room in your property or building, adding a feature wall would certainly create an impressive focal point. We’ve also seen wall cladding used to great effect on head boards and bar fronts.

Fired Spruce

Fired Spruce is a thermally modified product, treated at 212 degrees centigrade which gives the Spruce lovely caramel hues and enhances dimensional stability. The boards are lightly wire brushed, giving the surface an accentuated pattern by pulling the softer spring wood and leaving the summer wood more exposed. Commercially, Fired Spruce adds dimension to shopping or office spaces, breaking up surfaces and adding to the visual balance through three dimensional form while homes and living spaces will be transformed by the warmth and form of a natural product.

Weathered Mixed Species

Reclaimed and repurposed, our Weathered Mixed Species is a great option for the eco-conscious client. Pieces offer a variety of tones, from silvery greys to soft brown, with the rugged blocks locking together to create a beautifully rustic panel. As no two pieces are the same, you are guaranteed to have your own unique display. Our Weather Mixed Species has been generating a lot of interest with Royal London Group, Project Pie in Dundee and Taco Bell London, to name a few all using our product.

Flooring used as wall cladding

Another great option we offer is using our flooring as wall cladding. With such a diverse range of products you are guaranteed to find a something to create your desired look. Our Crag and Contour have a unique colour palette, including soft pinks to navy blues, which is created using a hydro stain and Osmo oil. The hydro stain is a water based coating which is applied first to give the Oak a base colour and then the Osmo Oil is used to protect and highlight the surface. In addition to the Crag and Contour, our Chateau, Brushed and 17th Century Oak boards are also available.

If a softwood is more suited to your project, the Larch flooring is a nice option. The cold climate in which it is grown is demonstrated by the tight grain and immense durability. As an unfinished product, you have the choice of finishing these boards on site to get the colour you truly desire. These A Grade Larch boards take beautifully to most colours and the Osmo oils ensure that the natural grain and knots are transparent in all finishes, even the darkest oils.

How to fix your Interior Wall Cladding

All products can be fixed to the walls using a simple batten system. A secret fix through the tongue of the boards avoids the need to face fix and the next board easily slots on top with the tongue and groove interlocking. Alternatively an adhesive could be used to fix the supporting wall.
