I am building a workshop and looking at options for the interior wall
finish. <snip> Any suggestions?
Your shop, right? Your money, right? So put up whatever makes you
happy, paint it gloss white, and don't worry about what anyone else has
to say about it.
Me, I'd probably put up the least expensive whatever I could find,
then I'd nail wood strips (maybe 2X2s, or 2X4s) horizontally around the
walls, several strips, not just one - that's so I'd have something to
nail into to hand stuff from - I wouldn't care to trust just a sheet of
plywood for nailing into. Gloss white latex paint, minimum of two
coats, preferably more - believe me, once you get stuff in there, and
start hanging stuff up, all that stuff will start sucking up the light,
gloss white will help a lot more than semi-gloss. Oh yeah, paint
everything but the windsows - walls, ceiling, floor.
If it can't kill you, it ain't a sport.
