My question is about the installation of paneling on a ceiling that measures 7m by 5m. What type of paneling do you recommend on such a surface to avoid any risk of deformation? What do you think of wood paneling or melamine? Which one would you choose?

The deformation of the paneling does not depend on its material but on the way the framework is made up. The longer the joists are spaced the more the paneling will tend to deform. A maximum center distance of 40 cm can be considered for the installation of paneling, beyond, the result will not be guaranteed. Avoid melamine paneling that does not support moisture, especially if the destination is a kitchen or bathroom. Prefer wood or even more economical PVC, which nowadays comes in many shades.
