How to finish drywall with panels

Hello!

Just an FYI: this is my first DIY project so if you read something and want to throw your phone across the room because it was just that stupid, Iím sorry.

My laundry room is incomplete, and I would love to get started finishing it. My first question ; thereís a long wall with no pipes or anything that has drywall plus, about every 1-2 feet, a panel that goes from the floor to the ceiling. Iím not sure why theyíre there but I donít mind them... I just need to know how to finish it with them there! Do I just layer and layer and layer a bunch of concrete until it matches up with the end of the panel? (If you havenít thrown your phone yet Iím proud of you) or do I have to buy something that will snug right in between the panels? Iíd probably believe anything you guys tell me, so please be nice!

Thank you for bearing through my first post that should probably be titled Ďhow not to finish a wall with panelsí.

Welcome to the forums.

Sheetrock we can understand.
Panels ? What kind of panels ?
Maybe a picture or two...... How-to-insert-pictures

I'm also having a hard time understanding what you mean by panels, pics would help explain what you have.

I'm a little confused..... I don't see any sheetrock or pegboard panels there.
If this is not your picture...... one of your project would be needed.

Pegboard is 1/4" hardboard with holes in it.

I donít know what everything is called... I just saw the word pegboard on the picture so thatís what I thought it was called. And I canít figure out how to post images from my phone but thatís exactly what my wall looks like. I just donít know how to finish it.

I only post pictures from a laptop or home computer.
Many members had have said they can't post pics from their phone.

Ok...... so your wall looks identical to the wall in post 3..... correct ?
Then you just have a studded wall. Open on one side and closed on the other side.
For a laundry room..... the walls should just be sheetrocked. If you do have pegboard panels there and don't use them..... take them down.

If you are saying there is peg board every so often, you'd remove the peg board before hanging drywall.

Is sheet rock the same as drywall? Should it also be insulated at all? I appreciate you two!!

Sheetrock is a brand name of drywall.
Should it also be insulated at all?
What's on the other side of the wall. The only 2 reasons to insulate is for heat [exterior wall] or noise reduction.
