Not just for transforming the exterior of your home, cladding has a lot to offer on the inside, too. From timber to stone, take a look at these stylish and design-led examples.
Cladding is often associated with the exterior of a property, however don't underestimate the power of interior cladding or panelling inside your home. Take a look at some impressive and inspiring examples below.

The rich grain pattern of this bespoke panelling creates a sense of intimacy in this cosy dining area. The timber framing has been designed to line up beautifully with the coffered-style ceiling. An experienced joiner would be able to create a similar installation as part of a retrofit.
Cork wall covering
Cork is a sustainable and moisture-resistant material with a range of uses. Composed of a thick cork-backing layer with a stone-effect veneer on top, this wallcovering is a natural sound-absorber, reducing noise pollution from room to room and within the same space.
Quartz shower enclosure
Lend a walk-in shower an element of luxury by covering the walls with quartz slabs. These have a rough concrete finish, are non-porous, and heat-and-stain resistant. Include brass fittings and a timber floor for a spa-style opulence.
Solid oak planks
A central glass-walled atrium spans three floors in this house, designed by Studio David Thulstrup. In keeping with the leafy garden views, the corner pillars are clad in wide, solid-oak planks. They also provide a pleasing contrast with the industrial-style concrete floor and perforated black steel staircase.
Geometric timber cladding
A collaboration between interior designer Tetiana Lukianets and a carpenter led to this show-stopping bedroom wall, formed from timber strips that have been laid in place to create interlocking geometric shapes.

Cladding walls in reclaimed pine has given this bathroom the look of a cosy cabin. The variations in tone, texture and wear of reused timber provide character that can turn a bland space into a one with depth and rustic charm.
