Can I hang paintings on wall panelling?

nicolepickelleJuly 29, 2014
I am building a new house with lots of white large walls. I want minimal looking panelling not the chunky ones. The dilemma I have is does it look OK with hanging pictures over it? Do I only hang them between each panel?

What kind of panelling are you referring to?

My only concern is that the picture might not lay flat against the wall. If you can find a way to offset that issue, I don't know why you couldn't hang a picture over it as it's your house.

Oh, now I know what you mean. No, they don't necessarily have to go in the boxes.
There are some examples on houzz, I just don't know how to get them to here.

Thanks for those pictures. You have helped me make up my mind. I won't be putting paintings on the panelled wall. I will though put a table against the wall (pic 3) with gorgeous ornaments on it and some seating in my large front entrance area. Maybe a coat stand and hall table for dumping keys and mobiles on and a big rug on the floor.

Sounds like your entry will look great.
And yes, Angel18432, I dislike shopping -- I never feel I'm actually accomplishing anything when I'm doing it. Conversely, I do like to have new stuff.
