Panelling instantly adds that downstairs-at-Downton feel; opt for easy-to-fit tongue-and-groove MDF panels or timber cladding, available from DIY stores. Or head to an online specialist such as panelmaster.co.uk or thewallpanellingcompany.co.uk for bespoke designs. Keep things simple with a square profile Shaker design or add a twist by fitting tongue-and-groove panels horizontally rather than vertically. Then paint in a moody flat-finish neutral.
