What to Know about Wood Wall Paneling Removal

The real challenge is replacing it or how to best conceal it. Most of the time, wood paneling is simply a low cost and effective way to finish a space. But, it’s definitely an outdated look.

Dark wood wall paneling sure had its heyday, and it surely is over! Wall paneling can be tricky to update, and whether you can resurface it by filling in the grooves depends on if your paneling is solid wood or plywood. If the wall has plaster or drywall behind the paneling and the paneling wasn’t glued to the wall surface, you may be able to remove the paneling and rehab the old wall surface using drywall joint compound. —Today’s Homeonwer.com

Okay, so you’ve decided to get rid of that old wood wall paneling. Here’s how to do that:

  • Paint over it. A simple but not necessarily easy way to deal with old wood paneling is to paint right over it. Well, after it’s been properly prepared and primed. Fill groove with caulk or wood putty and sand smooth, then apply the right number of coats of primer and paint. If you’d like a distressed, shabby chic look, skip the caulk and wood putty but still prime the paneling before painting over it.
  • Hang drywall. If the wall is equipped with insulation, then there’s no reason you can’t improve it’s look and energy efficiency. Hang drywall over it to conceal it and provide a new, clean surface.
  • Stain or wallpaper it. Instead of painting, you can stain it to give it a different look.This probably isn’t your first choice but it’s always possible to wallpaper over it and just cover it up.
