So, you have decided to update your kitchen, giving the interior more naturalness. For this purpose, wood is used as a cladding material, t.e. planed board. It doesn’t matter if the kitchen will be “dressed” completely (all walls from floor to ceiling) in wood or partially (in fragments or half a wall), the work technology will remain unchanged. It’s just that each of the options differs in the amount of money, time, and nerves spent.
To facilitate your work and not nail the boards directly to the wall, it is best to lay the lath base first. Reiki are arranged horizontally at almost the same distance from each other. The only “but” here is the second bar from the top. It should be stuffed at such a distance that it is more convenient to then mount hanging cabinets (after all, it is better to screw self-tapping screws into the wall not just through the facing board – the fasteners go through the board, rail and then into the wall). But instead of the lower rail, you can safely use a wooden skirting board. On the walls where the doors and windows are installed, the rails are not brought to the openings of millimeters by 20.
To attach the rail itself in the walls, holes are drilled to a depth of up to 500 mm, into which the wooden “chopic” are then driven. One horizontal rail will need 6-9 traffic jams depending on the length of the wall itself. In order to drive the rail strictly in the center of a wooden cork, you should make a pencil of the diameters out of the “chop”.
It is recommended to start the walls of the walls with a tree with the corner that immediately catches the eye when entering the room. And then gently move in both directions, thoroughly adjusting the boards in the places of their docking. If there is a need to cut the board (not placed), do it with a longitudinal hacksaw to avoid defects in work.
The boards themselves should be attached to the spoon (t.e. overlapping each other). Therefore, in each board there must be a special sample on one side for fastening along the entire length. In order to spend less time on processing the material yourself, it is recommended to buy a ready-made set of boards. Fortunately, in building materials stores you can buy a board of any texture, the right size.
One of the difficult moments in the cladding will be the place of cladding in the area of switches and sockets. Leading the wires outside and twisting over the top of the tree is risky. Therefore, it would be more reasonable to bypass these places, as if deepening the elements of electricity into square niches. And for this, you must first stuff additional frames of rails on the wall, in the center of which there will be sockets and switches.
