Dado wall panelling has been around for a long time, yet it remains a highly popular choice among homeowners. This is thanks to the engaging aesthetic qualities it can add to a home since it functions as a welcome visual break that allows the homeowner to play around with a range of textures, colours, and wall designs. 


At CNC Creations, we offer traditional-styled dado wall panels. Available in various panel thicknesses and with a primed or unprimed finish, our wall panelling dado options are suitable for all homeowners looking to add a traditional feature with a modern twist to their properties. 


Why Use Dado Wall Panelling

Dado wall panels offer an effective way to add additional touches of character and textural intrigue to your property. These wall panels are placed around a metre or so above floor level and function as a welcome break in the wall, allowing you to have two different materials, colours, or textures on a single wall. 


While the primary objective of dado wall panelling in modern homes is to enhance the aesthetics of a room, they can also provide their original purpose, which was to protect the walls from chair backs. Indeed, you’ll sometimes see dado wall panels referred to as ‘chair rails.’
