How to Cover an Ugly Wall

If you have an ugly wall that you’ve been wanting to get rid of or if you've recently moved into a new home with an unsightly wall, you might be wondering what's the quickest and easiest way to fix it. Fortunately, there are many ways to cover an ugly wall without too much hassle. In this article, we'll explore some ideas to cover an ugly wall including porcelain and natural stone wall cladding, Flexstone, corten steel panels, and other creative solutions.

Porcelain Cladding Panels

Porcelain cladding panels are made from high-quality porcelain tiles designed to mimic the look of natural stone. This type of cladding is durable, easy to maintain, and available in a wide range of colours and textures. These sectional pieces can be cut to size using a porcelain blade and then bonded to the wall using an all-weather adhesive or a bonding agent such as CT1. Porcelain cladding is a great option for both indoor and outdoor walls as it is resistant to heat, stains, and scratches.

Natural Stone Wall Cladding

Similar to porcelain cladding, natural stone wall cladding is made up of small sectional pieces joined together on a backing plate ready to install onto the wall. This sandstone wall cladding can be cut with a diamond blade disc cutter and either CT1 or an all-weather adhesive. Natural stone wall cladding offers a timeless and elegant look to any space. This option is great for outdoor walls as it is resistant to frost and weathering.

Flexstone Walling Sheets

A new and innovative product in the market is the Flexstone walling sheet. These sheets are made from natural stone that is rolled up and ready to cut to size with an appropriate cutting disc and bonded to the wall using R2T reactive-resin adhesive. The Flexstone range comes in a wide selection of finishes ranging from natural stone finishes to corten steel – all made from natural stone. This product is ideal for those who want to create a modern look in their space without compromising on quality and durability.

Corten Steel Panels

If cladding is not for you, then consider using corten steel panels to cover an unsightly wall. Corten steel is a type of steel that has been treated with a special coating that gives it a weathered, rustic look. This type of cladding is perfect for outdoor spaces or areas where you want to create an industrial, modern look. Corten steel panels are also durable and resistant to corrosion, making them a great choice for areas that are exposed to the elements. These panels come in a range of different sizes and finishes, including some with interesting cut-out features.

Green Solutions

If you want to add some life to your space while covering up an ugly wall, consider adding a trellis or wires for attractive climbing plants to cling to. Consider an evergreen clematis such as Clematis Armandii with its glossy green foliage and white early springtime fragrant flowers as a good option. This green solution will not only beautify your space but also provide added benefits such as air purification and temperature regulation.

Painting the Wall

If you're on a tight budget or looking for a quick fix, painting the wall is a great option. Use a good quality masonry paint and choose a colour that complements the style of your home. This will instantly transform the look of your space and give it a fresh new look.


In conclusion, covering up an ugly wall doesn't have to be a daunting task. There are many options available, from cladding options such as porcelain and natural stone to innovative products like Flexstone and corten steel panels. Green solutions like adding climbing plants and painting the wall are also great options. With so many choices available, it's easy to find a style that fits your needs and
