Express your creativity and transform the look of your room with decorative wall panels from Surround by Laminex.

Walls with a ‘wow’ factor

When you’ve got a room that’s ready for transformation, changing up the largest surfaces will create the biggest impact. Colour is the go-to solution for refreshing a tired space, but why stop there? Adding texture to the walls introduces warmth and interest to a room and dials up the style. Just like paint, it’s also easy to do it yourself! Be inspired to bring va-va-voom to any room with Surround by Laminex wall panels.

Choose your style

There’s a Surround by Laminex wall panel to suit the style and personality of any New Zealand home. Whether it’s the timeless charm of Classic VJ, the soft curves of Scallop or the bold accent of the Batten design, each panel adds depth and warmth to your space.

The panels are available in two sizes, they are durable and impact resistant, and they can be used throughout the home, including living areas, bedrooms, bathrooms1 and laundries1.

Plan it your way

Start your design process by gathering inspiration online at the Surround by Laminex inspiration gallery or from your favourite creative source. The colours, materials, size, and architectural style of your home will inform the best Surround by Laminex profile for your space.

Are you looking for a subtle, classic look or a modern feel with bolder accents? There are numerous application uses, including standalone feature walls, split walls, horizontal placement or a bedhead wall. The panels are pre-primed and ready to paint in your choice of colour, offering versatility to suit all interior schemes, with the added flexibility of being able to update the colour to suit your changing taste over time.

Easy D.I.Y.

Watch your space transform before your eyes with these easy-to-install wall panels. The sheets join seamlessly, using a tongue-and-groove system. Start in the corner and work across the wall, applying construction adhesive and then securing with nails or screws. Fill any nail holes, sand and paint. Install your skirting boards and cornices as necessary, and you’re done!
