Installation Methods of Different Wall Panels

I. What are the main wall decoration materials? And how to install it?


Before any wall material is installed on the wall, the flatness of the wall must be treated.

1. Wallpaper


Wallpaper is an ideal interior wall decoration material, which can be selected flexibly. Wallpaper is based on paper, coated with plastic preparations, and attached to the wall with glue. Its hygroscopicity and air permeability are poor, which is one of its drawbacks. Therefore, some people are not happy to use it, and use paint instead. Most people abroad still use wallpaper and wall coverings. Japanese people mainly use wallpaper and are not interested in paint. Today’s popular flame retardant wallpaper is still a decorative hot spot.

The lamination of wallpaper has higher requirements on the flatness of the wall. Therefore, before sticking wallpaper, the wall must be treated to make the wall smooth, flat, dry and solid, free from unevenness, dirt and peeling. Apply glue on the back of the cut wallpaper, fold the glued side for 5 minutes after coating, let the glue completely penetrate the bottom of the paper, and then paste it. You can paint several wallpapers at a time and paste them in sequence. Finally, use a scraper to gently scrape the wallpaper from top to bottom, from the middle to the surrounding, squeeze out the bubbles and excess glue, and make the wallpaper flat and close to the wall.

2. Wall fabric

Wall fabric

There are three types of wall fabrics: fiberglass printed wall coverings, decorative wall coverings and non-woven wall coverings. Its advantages are firmness, breathability, flame retardant, noise reduction and sound absorption.
The disadvantage is that its price is higher than that of wall fabric, and most of them are imported products, which need to be used in conjunction with luxury room decoration to strengthen the artistic taste.

First of all, first smooth the flatness of the wall, measure the length of the wall, from one inner corner to another inner corner. Then cut the wall covering according to the length of the wall, leaving a reserved position of about 5 cm. Then apply the glue evenly to the wall. Finally, glue the wall covering to the wall. Special reminder, the wall covering is different from the wallpaper. The glue when pasting the wall covering is painted on the wall, not on the wall covering. The wall fabric cannot be wet or glued.

3. Paint decoration

Paint decoration

The interior wall decorative paint is used, and the film-forming substance is used to bond it to the wall, and the dry film thickness has a certain protective and decorative effect on the interior wall. There are three types of solvent-based paint, water-soluble paint and latex paint paint. It is characterized by non-toxic, breathable, flame retardant, no peculiar smell, cheap price, mature and firm, bright and clean appearance, and is widely used.

First, flatten the wall first, then repair the uneven position of the wall by scraping the putty twice, then apply the primer and brush evenly, and then make repairs, pay attention to be sure to polish it flat, and then you can paint work now.

4. Tile


The inner wall tiles are used to paste the wall with adhesive, which is clean, hygienic, non-vacuuming, and easy to clean. Mostly used to decorate walls in kitchens and bathrooms.

First of all, first smooth the flatness of the wall, then spread the cement mortar on the wall, then smear the cement mortar on the back of the tile, and then spread the tile evenly on the wall, you can do this and so on, to paste the next tile.

5. Mosaic


Mosaic is the smallest wall decoration material. It is very fashionable, has strong pressure resistance, low water absorption, acid and alkali resistance, impermeability, firm and beautiful quality, and is mostly used for balcony and bathroom decoration.

First of all, first smooth the flatness of the wall, and then use the grout to smooth the wall before laying, and then use the same kind of grout just used to grout the back of the mosaic, and fill the grout as soon as possible. The mosaic is neatly paved in the direction of the trademark arrow and patted with a flat plate.

6. Stone


Stone used as wall decoration materials are mainly divided into two categories: natural and artificial.

The natural veneer stone used for interior wall decoration is marble; the artificial veneer mainly includes artificial marble, prefabricated terrazzo slab, etc. The wall decorated with stone looks elegant and magnificent.

There are three ways to install the stone on the wall. The first is dry hanging, which is fixed on the wall with bolts. Then slot a piece of stone, fix the stone with a T-shaped frame, and then fix the T-shaped frame and bolts together. There are certain examples of such a marble wall and the wall itself, but the fixation is good. The second is wet stickers. First lay a layer of steel mesh on the wall, and then use concrete wet paste. The third is to paste directly. The direct paste method is not suitable for the bathroom, because the bathroom is mostly light-weight wall, the deformation is large, and the bathroom is often wet, and the glue is easy to age and cause accidents over time. In addition, due to the large deformation of the lightweight wall, if the wall is deformed after gluing, the stone will also change, causing hidden dangers.

7. Solid wood

Solid wood

Solid wood wallboard is a new type of decorative wall material developed in recent years, using solid wood as the base material. It can replace both wallpaper and wall materials such as wall tiles, so it is widely used. Solid wood wallboard has the advantages of light weight, fire prevention, moth resistance, simple construction, and generous shape.

First, show the plan we need to set on the drawing, and then start to lay out the holes, use stainless steel expansion bolts to inlay the special keel for solid wood wall panels on the wall, pay attention to be firm enough, and the distance between them is the best It is about 60cm, and then use angle head bolts to fix the solid keel on the special keel, and then put the solid wood wall panel on the solid keel, which must be fixed well.

8. Diatom mud

Diatom mud

Diatom mud is an environmentally friendly decorative wall material for interior walls that uses diatomite as the main raw material. It is not only decorative, but also functional. As a novel decorative material in the home improvement market in recent years, it is deeply loved by consumers because of its natural materials, environmentally friendly and healthy materials.

First, use a small spatula to deal with the flatness of the wall, add an appropriate proportion of water to stir the diatom mud, and then use it after the viscosity is suitable. According to the on-site climate conditions, it is advisable that the surface is not sticky to the hand, and the bottom condition is filled with materials, and then painted a second time, the thickness is about 1.5 mm, and the total thickness is between 1.5 mm and 3 mm. Most people like flat diatom mud, and if you like the properties, you can grasp the boring moment according to the actual environment and dry conditions, and make texture patterns according to the construction method.

9. WPC wall panel

WPC wall panel

A WPC wall panel is a kind mainly made of wood as the basic material, thermoplastic polymer material and processing aids, etc., mixed evenly and then heated and extruded by mold equipment. High-tech green environmental protection new decorative material, which has both the properties and characteristics of wood and plastic, is a new composite material that can replace wood and plastic.

For different types of WPC wall panels, the installation methods are also different. In general, there are roughly three differences, namely whether a keel is required, whether there is a slot at the splicing, and whether the fixing method is screw or glue. We will focus on the installation methods of different wall panels in the second major point.

II. How are the different types of WPC wall panels installed differently?

1. WPC Great Wall board

4. Wall Mounted Headboard

Wall mounted headboard is composed of bottom plate, sponge interlayer, decorative surface leather and shaping strip. The custom background wall panel consists of base plate, sponge interlayer, veneer leather and shaping strip.

The installation methods of the soft wall and the hard wall in the customized background wall are different and the same. The same is that both need to be plywood as the bottom plate before installation. The difference is that the soft wall needs to be sandwiched between the fabric and the bottom plate. The hard wall is the fabric directly attached to the bottom plate.

5. WPC Wall Cladding

First, measure the required size of solid wood interior wall panel, then cut the WPC wall cladding with a saw, prepare glass glue and styrofoam glue, put glue on the back of the WPC wall paneling, and spread the glue evenly, then paste the first WPC interior wall panel on the wall, the clip is buckled on the edge of the mother groove, snapped into the clip, fixed with gun nails, and then inserted into the next piece of solid wood wall cladding, fixed with nails, and installed in sequence.

The nailing position of the side nail should be about 20mm from the edge of the board. The nail distance is 300~600mm. The joint can be injected with silicone sealant, or mortar can be used.

III. What are the advantages and disadvantages of wall panel installation compared to the installation of other wall decoration materials?

1. Paint VS WPC Wall Panel

Advantages: Although the WPC wall cladding price is not high, painting on the wall is cheaper than interior WPC wall panel installation price and labor costs.

Disadvantages: The flatness and integrity requirements of the paint on the wall are higher than the installation of the WPC slatted cladding, because if the wall has cracks or gaps, it will have a great impact on the paint on the wall, but if the WPC interior wall cladding is installed, if the wall is not flat, you can play the bottom plate to solve the problem of incomplete wall.

2. Wallpaper VS WPC Wall Panel

Advantages: Wallpaper paste is cheaper than WPC wall panel interior installation price and labor costs.

Disadvantages: The wallpaper will use glue during the laying process, which will generate a certain amount of formaldehyde, but installing the WPC wall panel using screws and other fixing methods will not only produce no odor that will harm the human body, but also will not affect the appearance.
