Cutting decorative wall panels can be a task that is easy to accomplish. Installing these panels will give your home a very exclusive look to be admired by others. These panels come in a variety of colors and styles:


Take your measuring tape and measure the panels for accuracy. Make sure that the panels are the right size to fit the location where they are to be placed.

Marking and cutting

Take a pencil and mark the locations on the panels that outlets, switches, and windows are located. These marks will help you cut in the correct places to accommodate the mentioned devices. Take the utility knife and cut out the marked locations.


Saw the panels to fit the dimensions of the rooms' walls. Use the heavy tape to bond the panels to the plywood cutting table. Taping to the plywood will stop the panel from moving. A circular saw will be the best device to use to complete this mission. Be sure that you wear goggles to protect your eyes while using the saw. After sawing the panels to their correct size, sand the edges to make them smooth. Repeat the process for each panel.
