Fixing Laminate Wall Cladding to a Plasterboard Wall

by JamieFrankis » Thu Apr 10, 2008 2:22 pm

Hi,

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!

Jamie

I would use clear silicone to bed laminate.
Dont use gripfill not as good,

Google "totalstone.co.uk", they do some really good lightweight panels...
