Wall paints for wallpaper & woodchip: what you need to know

Everyone has a room in their flat or house that could do with more colour! This also applies to a wallpapered wall.
Not just woodchip wallpaper - you can also paint paper wallpaper, non-woven wallpaper, patterned wallpaper and textured wallpaper perfectly. No matter what type - you can paint all your walls with our colours! Painting offers you the ideal opportunity to give your home a new look again and again. Painting an accent wall in the room in a different colour is actually just as quick as a tour of the furniture stores in search of new decorations.
Here you will find important information on wall paint for the different types of wall paints.

What distinguishes wall paint for wallpaper & woodchip?

With our wall paints, you can give a plain wallpaper a sophisticated and special look. The particularly powdery and matt look of our sustainable paints and chalk paints turns the dullest wallpaper into an eye-catcher. The paint has super opacity, is abrasion-resistant and robust, and is practically odourless. You are spoilt for choice, because we offer hundreds of colour shades. So, which is your favourite shade?

Can you paint colour over any wallpaper?

Basically, you can paint over any wallpaper with a brush or paint roller. The paint is of course suitable for woodchip wallpaper. It is important that it is still firmly attached to the wall. If it is partially loose, the moisture created during painting can cause the wallpaper to come loose further. If the wallpaper was wallpapered well, you will usually no longer see the edges of the individual strips after painting.

Common uses for wallpaper paint

Sometimes it's not the pattern of the textured wallpaper that bothers you, but simply the colour. And woodchip wallpaper was invented for changing colour frequently anyway. So it's perfect for us colour-crazy people!
Or the retro pattern on your non-woven wallpaper that was popular a few years ago no longer suits your style - a fresh coat of paint can also help. You can also paint your textured wallpaper.
Your wallpapered ceiling can be transformed just as easily with our colours!

Use this paint for woodchip wallpaper

Do you want to paint woodchip wallpaper? The paint qualities listed above are all suitable for woodchip wallpaper. Make sure that the wallpaper can take the paint well. It should neither be too absorbent nor too water-repellent. It is best to try out how the paint behaves on your surface beforehand.

Painting wallpaper & woodchip: 3 tips for application

  • Tip 1: Before you start painting, you can first fill old wallpaper holes, cracks or nail holes with our To Fill - MissPompadour Filler.
  • Tip 2: You can easily paint over your wallpaper. It's best to pour the paint into a paint tray. You can use our brushes for all corners and edges and paint the surfaces with a paint roller. You can also use a small Roller. Our wall paints are quite heavy - you'll last longer with the smaller roller!
  • Tip 3: As woodchip is uneven, it is advisable to work crosswise. This means you first paint a surface from top to bottom and then again crosswise. This way you can reach all the recesses. If you have a highly textured surface, a high-pile paint roller may be a good option.
