Wood textured vinyl

Hi all, I have a very tired looking boat interior. I was thinking of using self adhesive vinyl to cover up some of the old looking laminate.
Has anyone done that? I'm afraid that it might peel off with the humidity.
Thanks

Re: Wood textured vinyl

Saw something similar but using flexible woodgrain vinyl flooring,and the proper adhesive for that......even gone to the extent of having 'plugs' set in..... . I t had been done by a professional floor layer........looked like planks and very 'marine like' and so easy to keep clean.....

Entire exteriors are done in it and at least one member here has it in their interior and itís stuck there for decades they said in one of my threads. You can vinyl wrap anything. A 30ft Pearson? Not a huge area inside. Give it a shot and see how it goes. Even if just ok one wall.

I wouldn't be inclined to do this because of the tendency for mould to grow underneath due to the humidity...

Chotu, I'm surpised you would recommend this - especially with the extensive lengths you are going through to prevent any and all eventualities of potential mould on your boat that you're currently building.

Mold won’t grow behind vinyl wrap. It’s an air tight barrier. There are a few (very few) spots I’m using it decoratively.

We are not talking about those old, ugly vinyl headliners, which I think you may be picturing. We are talking about the stuff they put on cars and city busses instead of a paint job.

Re: Wood textured vinyl

I think the OP is taking about vinyl plank flooring rather than vinyl wrapping. Done well, it looks real and will stay in place. I would avoid the cheap self adhesive sheet type, particularly as flooring but then I havenít used it, just seen some ordinary looking results. The plank systems that are supplied with their own adhesive seem to be very good.

OK. Maybe they are. Maybe we donít really know what the OP is talking about. I think they should clarify a little bit. Because I think we are thinking of different things. I definitely wouldnít put any vinyl flooring up there on the wall. I would only use a vinyl wrap. Otherwise, everything that littlewing said is going to apply.
