Easycraft EasyVJ panelling enlivened this kitchen island with a bold colour choice of British Paints Mossy Road.

The project

 

I made good use of some time off and got a few things done around my own home, which tends to be more of a rarity these days with everything else going on. Soon my little man will be born and I don't want to be burdened with unfinished projects while I'm spending every moment with him.

Both my wife and I are really happy with how this facelift turned out. We flipped back and forth on the style of panelling as well as the colour.

We were originally sticking with white so the timber cabinetry and dark splashback remained the feature, but if Darren Palmer has taught me anything on The Block it's to "be bold". We found the perfect green to tie in with some of our other decor and went for a more simplistic panelling rather than batten style.

Hi, 

 

we’re currently renovating our kitchen and I like the style of vj panels, do they go onto flat pack cabinets? Looking to put it on the back of an island bench and potentially the doors also

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Michael-jones08. It's brilliant to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about EasyVJ panelling.

 

You could use this panelling on an island bench built from flat pack cabinetry. The only issue I can see is that on @ProjectPete's island, he has waterfall ends. This makes it super simple to just cut and fix the panelling in place as you can't see the sheet ends. On a standard island, you'll be able to see the ends, so you might need to do some filling work to blend the sheeting in convincingly. With some work, I can't see any reason why you couldn't also use the V-groove panels on cabinet doors. We have the Kaboodle 450mm Nougat Truffle Country Cabinet Door, and if you liked that style, it could be an alternative option. 

 

It might be worth considering if it would be easier to purchase Kaboodle 450mm Raw Board Modern Cabinet Doors and routing the V-grooves into them with an Ultra 6.4mm V Groove Router Bit yourself. That might be less work than cutting and adhering the panelling.

 

Hopefully, Pete might be able to give us his thoughts on your project as well.

 

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Mitchell
