Baking not your thing... how about DIY instead?

Baking not your thing... how about DIY instead?

Last night saw the first episode of The Great British Bake Off 2018. This almost ‘cult’ show is now in its ninth series, having first aired back in 2010.

The format remains largely unchanged. Back in 2010, there were only 10 contestants. Now, 12 amateur bakers take to the kitchen in a bid to be crowned the winner.

Largely self taught, each week sees them being set a ‘bake’ to make which they can select and practice at home. That should be the easy bit, although there have been some monumental disasters in previous years. The hard bit is when the contestants are given a set of ingredients and a recipe to follow with very little guidance. It clearly makes for good viewing, as over 7.7 million viewers tune into to Channel 4 to watch each week!

Unlike the 'technical' challenge set by The Great British Bake Off judges, here at PLAANK our fitting instructions our comprehensive and easy to follow. Any competent DIYer would be easily able to fit PLAANK wall panelling, without the need to practice first.

We have a ‘how-to’ video which illustrates just how easy the process really is, along with a complete section on our website dedicated on installing PLAANK wall panels.

Most homeowners are already likely to have the majority of the equipment needed to install our wall panels. The ‘ingredients’ that you would need to fit our wall panelling comprise:

  • Construction adhesive
  • Caulk gun
  • Hammer
  • 2” finish nails
  • Saw
  • Pencil
  • Tape measure
  • Spirit level

We would recommend the use of gloves when handling the planks, along with safety goggles and a dusk mask when trimming the planks. Ear plugs or defenders are a must if you are using an electric saw or nail gun.

Once any necessary preparation to the wall has been done, the process is relatively easy. Taking the time to fit the first panel correctly will pay dividends in the long run and a full wall can be panelled in a matter of a couple of days.

So if baking isn’t your thing, why not transform a room in your home and try your hand at fitting PLAANK wooden wall panels?
