    I have a single brick garage which i want to have for multi-purpose use. Sometimes if we are hosting a big part it will be nice to use the garage. I have tiled flooring. But the walls are a bit of an eyesore at the moment as it's just bricks. I can't really plasterboard on top of it as the cold and moisture will ruin it. Can anyone tell me what are my options? I don't want to spend a lot on it either. One option I am thinking is possibly rendering it and then just painting it. Can render stick to the brickwork directly or does some sort of mesh need to be applied? Other option which i'm not sure if it will work is what if I put wooden battens and then stick the PVC cladding to it? will that work? I know PVC cladding says internal use only. This is not really external but not really internal in terms of weather.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Just paint the brickwork. PVC cladding (a) looks cheap (b) will trap any damp in the wall & possibly cause mould buildup (behind the cladding where you can't see it but you will smell it). Render would work, mesh not usually required.
