Hmmm. Lots of extra dusting with most of this panelling!

We used panelling in our country cottage home to two thirds the height of some of the walls. The idea was that it would ease the washing down of them as we had mucky dogs. We put it up thinking it was a practical decoration only to be told by building control that we had to repaint it all with a special (and expensive) surface spread of flame deterrent paint. A certificate of standard was to be produced. Just be aware. PS it is easier to clean the panels than painted walls.

Love these paneling ideas. They totally transform a bedroom. However as a cheaper alternative there are wall murals one can buy and delightful vinyl stickers such as these tree silhouettes by Zazous which I used in my bedroom.
