Interior wall: wood paneling

Interior walls are well suited for various reasons, to be covered with wood. Why this is so and how you can produce a wooden paneling for the inner wall, is summarized below.

Different types of interior walls

Like any wall, you can build or dress an interior wall differently. So you can apply drywall in wood stand construction for the inner wall. In a bricked interior wall, there are numerous plaster types that can be used.

Common features of interior walls

Internal walls are not always load-bearing walls, which is why they are often dimensioned to a lesser extent. But building moisture is also rather rare on an interior wall. So there are different types of construction and certain characteristics of interior walls:

  • if not pregnant, less strong
  • as a result, poor sound insulation
  • hardly or rarely rising damp or wet in general
  • resulting in healthy building fabric

It is precisely these circumstances that make an interior wall seem predestined to be clad in wood. On the one hand, a very good heat and sound insulation can be produced. On the other hand, there is little risk of moisture to the wood. In addition, wood is already a classic material for covering walls and ceilings, creating a particularly comfortable atmosphere.

Very widespread: wood paneling of the inner wall with tongue and groove boards

Basically, the lining of an interior wall with wall panels made of wood is just as possible as with rustic planks. However, the most popular wood materials for covering an inner wall are tongue and groove wooden boards. In most cases, these boards are made of spruce or pine, so they are also particularly inexpensive. These tongue and groove boards should be pre-treated with a non-harmful wood stain.

Fixing the wooden panel

First, a battens are attached to the wall. The battens are arranged transversely to the later course of the wood paneling. The course is a decisive factor, as it has a special optical effect: longitudinally clad walls are also visually longer, standing boards mounted give the impression of a higher space. Depending on this, certain disadvantages such as room dimensioning can be concealed.

In the case of standing deflation, the tongue and groove boards are mounted transversely. They start with the first row, which is fastened with the spring upwards. For this special fittings on tongue and groove are used. Then there are no fixing screws or nails to find later.

They then work out row by row. Always make sure that the next wooden board is evenly pushed with the groove on the spring of the already attached board. You can use wooden strips on the finishes. To the floor and the ceiling, a distance of about 1 cm is respected.

Tips & Tricks

Instead of the special fittings, you can also use small nails. These are held with a holder, a bump sleeve. Again and again, it can be seen that particularly powerful tackers are used to fasten tongue and groove boards.
