Interior Cladding Options

Last Updated Feb 24, 2012 · Written by Jaclyn Fitzgerald

Cladding is an attractive and practical way to protect the home.  You usually think of the home’s exterior when you think about cladding but the simple truth is that cladding is often used on the inside of the home as well.  In fact, you have a surprising number of options for interior cladding!  Here are some of the most popular.  If you’d like to know about any more of these or how they’re used in the home, speak to your local cladding supplier.

Timber Wall Cladding

Timber is a popular material for interior cladding as it brings a look of natural elegance and warmth.  You can stain the timber to bring out the colour, or you can paint it in the colour of your choice.  It really is up to you!  You can use timber cladding on the whole wall laid either horizontally or vertically, or you can use it on just part of the wall depending on the look that you are trying to create.  Timber cladding comes as boards or panels.

PVC Wall Cladding

If you’re after an option that looks great, and is both long lasting and low maintenance, you can’t go past PVC wall cladding.  As you’d guess, the cladding is made from PVC panels that are available in a range of colours and designs.  You can choose from sleek modern panels, tile look panels, stone look panels, timber look panels and much more.  PVC cladding can be used anywhere inside the home but it specially excels in wet areas due to the fact that it is completely moisture resistant.

Plywood Wall Cladding

If you’re after an option that’s both economical and attractive, plywood wall cladding is a great choice.  Plywood comes in smooth panels that you can paint to your desired finish or it comes in textured finishes that imitate the look of horizontal or vertically laid timber boards.

Stone Wall Cladding

You might think of stone cladding being only for the outside of your building but if it used carefully inside the home, it can create an awesome feature – one that your friends and family will envy!  Use stone veneer in your living areas or bedrooms to give your room a timeless elegance and depth that is truly unmatched by any other building material.
