    Hi there,

    not much to add beyond the question in the thread title other than context

    currently building out the stud framework for a new understairs WC (toilet and basin only). Tight for space on the width and trying to claw back every cm I can. We are planning tongue and groove panelling all the way around about a metre high and then the top half of the room a paintable skimcoat.

    question is if the wood panelling NEEDS plasterboard underneath it or can it be placed directly onto the studwork & battons underneath?

    Is there any advantage to having plasterboard under panelling?

    I did consider but same difference really. They are only 1 mm thinner than the t and g I have.

    will have vertical battens fixed rigid to concrete wall and then horizontal battens for the panelling to fix to
