Posted by ei2Aevai on December 15th, 2020

Although these are excellent wall coverings, they can be expensive and messy to install and remove. However, there is a solution: PVC wall panels.

PVC wall panels can be a great solution if you want to cover your bare walls quickly and easily and make them look stylish too. They are available in almost any type of "look" you want, from granite look to wood grain, even marble or onyx.

PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride and is a plastic panel solution that has been molded for specific needs. It has several advantages over real wood paneling, for example, or other wall coverings. They include:


Unlike real wood siding or other natural materials, PVC wall panels are durable and very low maintenance. They resist fading and color changes and, unlike wood frp wall panels, for example, they don't absorb water or rot.

Ease of installation

PVC panels are easy to install. Most of today's PVC panels are made as a "tongue in groove" configuration, so that they can simply be stapled or nailed through recessed fasteners so that the fasteners are hidden. You can also glue PVC wall panels to the walls instead of stapling or nailing. The panels are lightweight and easy to handle, so you don't need any special tools.


You can find PVC panels in almost any color, style, or look you want. That means you can attach wall panels to almost any décor.

Easy maintenance

Unlike other wall coverings, you don't have to do anything special to clean or maintain PVC panels. All you have to do is clean them with a damp cloth.


You may be surprised to learn that PVC wall panels are also very insulating. This can provide a kind of additional insulation for your home beyond what you would normally think.

Fire resistant

PVC wall panels have the highest fire rating for any interior finish, further ensuring the safety of your family.


Although you'll pay a little out of pocket for PVC wall panels, the savings over time compared to other wallcovering materials is significant. Because they are very low maintenance, durable, fire resistant, and easy to clean, you can put them on once and enjoy them for years, no mess or fuss.

Easily changeable

Want to change the look of a room quickly? Instead of having to scratch and re-wallpaper (or repaint) a room every time you want a new look, you can simply remove the wall panels and replace the new ones, quickly. It's an easy way to change the look of a room, quickly and easily, without having to deal with messy paint or paper scrapes.
