Asian Paints is one of the few companies in India that offer comprehensive painting and makeover solutions for interior and exterior walls. Their Signature Wall series is a rage in metros like Bangalore and Chennai. However, my experience with them in Pune was frustrating and I discouraged people from considering Asian Paints. A regular reader of this blog, among a few others in Bangalore, spoke positively about their experiences with Asian Paints and how the painters agreed to re-paint the walls if they got it wrong.

It was a popular decor option for exterior walls but cladding has now moved indoors. Materials range from stones and tiles to fabric and wood.

It takes about 4-6 hours to complete a wall of this size. Once cladding is done, it is easier to maintain. Of course, there is a downside to every good thing. You cannot change the look of the wall easily.
