Fixing Laminate Wall Cladding to a Plasterboard Wall

Postby JamieFrankis » Thu Apr 10, 2008 1:22 pm


I'm planning on fixing wood effect laminate wall cladding to an interior plasterboard wall in my bedroom, taking inspiration from Bo Concept

Firstly, can anyone advise if laminate wall (or floor) cladding is the best option or if any other material is available.

Secondly, how should I fix the laminate to the wall? I was thinking of using Glue (e.g. panel glue, no more nails etc) as I don't want to use screws as this will look bad.

Thirdly, do you think that my plasterboard wall will take the weight of all this laminate?

Thanks for your help!

Google "", they do some really good lightweight panels...
