I have that awful pine cladding to my kitchen walls and ceiling, and its driving
as to what to do about it.
At first i thought of just cleaning it thoroughly and painting it. would this
look as cr*p
as i imagine it to?
I then thought it might be best to take the cladding down, but that poses a
problems..not least of all is i dont know what this cladding is hiding and i
COULD open up
a can of worms, replastering wise
Any ideas, other than those two above, guys 'n' gals?
tiling over it isnt an option, as the wall cupboards are fastened to the plaster
them.directly to the wall. The cladding was made to fit around them.
In a similar situation I ripped all the cladding off and skimmed the
surfaces, anything else would have looked tacky. It turned out to be not as
bad as I expected but until it is all off you won't be able to tell. I saw
the result of painting over the cladding in another house and it did indeed
look cr*p - big time cr*p.
I have timber cladding to my Kitchen ceiling , complete with 10 down
lighters .The timber is lightly varnished and edged with plaster
coving . It looks very neat and tidy . Whats the big deal surrounding
timber cladding ?.
