Manufactured homes often use vinyl wall panels that have a shiny finish that includes some patterns printed on the paper under the coating and over the gypsum. Giving your walls the best makeover is vital to making your house a home and giving it that lively and warm feeling when you walk in. A single change of colour to the walls of your home can change the entire look of the home. This is the best way to get the best finish from painting your vinyl walls.

OUR EXPERT ADVICEWe had so much fun doing this, so we hope you get the same enjoyment, once you have the items the fun begins.
Step 1- Prepping The Room
You will need to have the room set up perfectly before you begin making so you don’t make a mess. You’ll need to clean the walls before starting with a rug and fill in any gaps with spackle before letting dry.
OUR EXPERT ADVICEWe have rushed into painting jobs before and they’ve been a disaster so make sure a plan is in mind, it will be less messy.
Step 2- Applying the Painter’s Tape
Painter’s Tape is a painters’ best friend as this is almost just as important as anything else because it covers the areas where the paint should not be. This is placed over skirting boards as well as the corners of the walls and any light switches.
OUR EXPERT ADVICEPainter’s Tape is a vital part of the process that some people ignore, but trust us, you need it for the perfect job.
Step 3- Priming The Wall
Applying the primer before the paint is pivotal to this process. You will use a roller brush to prime the walls with a light coating. Adding the undercoat will ensure the durability of the paint and protect the surface.
OUR EXPERT ADVICEPriming the wall with the roller is one of our favourite parts and we think you’ll enjoy it too.
Step 4- Painting
The final process is getting down to the painting itself by choosing the right colour to add to the walls with the right premium paint brand. You can add one coating and then wait for it to dry and add another for the best finish.
OUR EXPERT ADVICE Our favourite part of all is getting down to the painting with whatever colours you’ve selected, it is so fun.
You now have the perfect guidelines to create unique and lively walls in your home to really stand out and give it that cosy and warm home feeling. Getting the right colour is vital so choose wisely.
