6 inspiring interior cladding designs
Cladding or panelling can transform the look of a home
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 interior cladding 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.
1. Timber framing
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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. Reclaimed pine
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 one with depth and rustic charm.
