Make wall panels made of plastic in a new color
Plastic panels are often wooden and give the room a warm and inviting look. But dirty or worn out look, then they must be replaced surely. In some cases, it is recommended simply to demolish and completely restructure the walls. But of course that proves exhausting and annoying work, you want to like to avoid. And in this case, you want to paint only the panels with color and quickly give your living space a new face.
With color paint over art panels
Plastic panels consist of polystyrene (styrofoam) or hard plastic. The panels made of foamed polystyrene as ceiling panels are suitable and relatively easier to dye. While you can bring normal wall colour in use. Avoid colors with solvents that can damage the surface of the styrofoam. For aesthetic reasons, a painting in white is recommended because the dark shades bring out the gap significantly.
Wall panels entirely made of plastic painted over in white
Wall panels made of hard plastic are as mentioned above in wood and are often made of melamine. This plastic is unfortunately not so simply paint over themselves and must be processed for the time being. With fine abrasive paper (300-400) you roughen the surface of the panels. Then remove the resulting dust and clean the panels with a damp cloth/sponge or directly with water, completely eliminate dirt and sanding dust. After you have prepared the surface and dry, you can prime the plastic panels. A primer on acrylic base is recommended in this case. Let it dry and then apply a layer of acrylic stained paint with a foam roller. Keep in mind that acrylic paint dries very quickly and is trying to paint the entire surface in a single pass. If necessary, applying a layer to color and then let us know whether you are satisfied with the end result.
