Top 5 wall finishes for your Modular Wall
Your strong, new modular wall has been installed – all you need to do now is apply the finish of your choice! Our systems can accommodate a variety of wall finishes to compliment your individual home’s architectural style.
Here are some ideas of the types of wall finishes you can choose for your modular wall:
1. Acrylic Paint
You can paint your modular boundary wall with any exterior, self-priming acrylic paint. It provides a smooth modern appearance, complements your home’s aesthetic and - with a bit of creativity - can provide a simple feature wall.
Dulux Weathershield and Wattyl Solagard are popular choices for many of our customers that doesn't need a primer and comes in a vast collection of colours.
2. Texture Paint
A textured paint can be used to create a stylish, rustic aesthetic that offers a rendered aesthetic, for a fraction of the cost of brick. Sand-based paint is a popular finishing option that’s cost-effective and achievable for the DIY customer.
3. Textured Render
Although our products are manufactured to mirror the look of an already rendered wall, you can add a textured look with an acrylic render. Apply with a trowel for a truly unique texture to your panels, such as stucco plastering or Tuscan-style finishes.
Cladding is a great way to customise your wall, whilst adhering larger feature veneers to panel surfaces can offer a striking DIY wall art idea. This method can also work extremely well for feature retaining walls and planter box designs.
Our panels are suitable for all types of veneers – simply keep to the weight restrictions recommended on the adhesive label. The general weight restrictions for most adhesives is usually around 90kg, but always check the label of the specific adhesive product you’re using.
Outdoor tiling has been a particularly successful finishing option for our modular pool walls. As with veneers or cladding, adhere to the weight specifications detailed on the adhesive being used.

Furthermore, for warranty reasons, we recommend you apply the finish on your wall within 90 days of its completed installation. Our wall materials arrive ready to accept your final finishing; therefore, if the wall surfaces are not clean due to prolonged exposure to the elements, finishes might not stick as well as it should. So finishing your wall promptly is an important last step!
