Installing Ikea Wall Panels
Ikea wall panels are pieces of grooved metal that are used to cover or protect a wall. They are a popular choice for sideways walls because they are durable and easy to install. If you have a wall or a pair of walls to cover, a wall panel retailer has the components you need for your structure. Take measurements of your walls and window openings with you when you buy the panels to get the right large panels and parts.
Apply a tight sealant to the bed by the wall. This is the lowest point on the wall where you should install panels. Lift the lower edge of the base up and place the lower boot bit against the sealant. Lower the base so that it overlaps the starting piece. Lay all the bottom starts pieces along the lower edge of the ikea wall panels in the same way. You need outside corner hats for walls that have outer corners and inside interfaces for interior corners. Window frames have their own special hats.
Tips and warnings
Paint the exposed screws and washers in the same color as you paint the ikea wall panels to make them unnoticed. Your sealant must be compatible with your wall panels.
