PVC panel, the little sweetheart of the interior decoration industry, has won the hearts of countless decoration enthusiasts with its lightness, waterproof and anti-corrosion characteristics, and convenient installation process.

Next, I will introduce you in detail with full passion how to add this bright color to your home.

Preparation stage: Ignite your installation passion

Carefully select the appropriate PVC panel according to the size of the space you want to transform and the design style you like. Then, build a solid stage for our protagonist-PVC panel, that is, the keel. You can choose a wooden or light steel keel according to your personal preferences and actual needs. To firmly fix the keel to the wall, don't forget to prepare expansion screws and self-tapping screws. Then, to make the PVC panels more tightly connected, PVC special glue is an indispensable assistant. Finally, don't forget the auxiliary materials such as edge banding, inner corner line, and outer corner line, which will make the entire installation process more perfect.

As for tools, electric drills, saws, tape measures, level rulers, pencils, scissors, blades, spatulas, sandpaper, etc, are all your indispensable good partners. Site preparation is also the key. Thoroughly clean the dust and dirt on the wall and the floor to make the installation environment reach the best state.

Now that everything is in place, it's time to embark on a DIY journey and let PVC panels bring new life and style to your home. Come on, I believe you can do a great job!

Let's start our PVC panel installation journey with enthusiasm! First, grab a tape measure and pencil and accurately measure and mark the area that needs to be installed. This step is super crucial as it will help you avoid any hiccups in the follow-up process!

Installation steps

Install the keel - Step 1

Next, determine the exact position of the keel according to the magical mark you just made. Remember, the spacing between the keels should be kept at 40-60 cm to ensure the stability of our panels. Now, let's get excited! Pick up the electric drill and bravely drill holes in the wall. Imagine the scene of firmly fixing the keel to the wall with those sturdy expansion screws. If you choose a wooden keel, it will be even easier. You can easily complete the installation with self-tapping screws!

Install PVC Panels - Step 2

Now, let's move on to the stage of cutting PVC panels. According to the size you measured before, carefully cut out the required panels with a saw or scissors. Be sure to pay attention to whether the edges are flat when cutting, and we must avoid burrs as much as possible!

Next, it's time to apply glue! Apply a layer of PVC-specific glue evenly on the back of the panel. Remember, don't apply it too thickly. We don't want the glue spilling over and affecting the aesthetics.

Carefully press the glued PVC panel onto the keel and gently pat it down with your hand until it fits snugly against the keel. If it doesn't feel solid enough, then use self-tapping screws to secure it further to the keel!

Check and adjust - Step 3

Use tools such as edge banding, inside corner lines, and outside corner lines to make panel seams and edges look good. Check the flatness of the panel. If you find unevenness, you can adjust it with a spatula to make sure the surface of the panel is smooth. Once installation is complete, clean up any residue so that the panel edges are smooth and neat.

Regular maintenance-Step 4

The surface of the PVC panel is smooth and easy to clean. Wipe with a damp cloth to avoid sharp objects scratching the panel. Check the connection between the panel and the keel regularly. If looseness or damage is found, repair or replace it promptly.
