    We've got an area close to backdoor and worktops etc. It's a small space and always getting knocked by the kitchen litter bin. Similarly dog coming in loves a shake off which splats the wall to.
    Is there a "hard-wearing or rubberised or whatever" I can put over existing plastered wall in locations as above. Probably floor level to worktop height?

    Clear perspex/macralon sheet, toughened glass, ceramic tiles even tough vinyl flooring fixed to the wall etc.

    Could try a scrubbable paint like Dulux Diamond/Crown Clean Extreme Scubbable Matt?

    Or do you mean something substantially more hard wearing?

    PVC wall cladding sheet, 1.5mm thick will do, but available in a range of thicknesses

    Available in white or a range of colours, the pvc is solid coloured, not sprayed so if it does pick up a scratch, not so noticeable

    If you cladding around the pillar, then 90degree trims available for a neat finish. Just bond to the wall (clean it first to degrease) with general building silicone

    Place local to me that sells this product and cuts to size, but not a regular ‘plastics’ UPVC window type place, more an old fashioned independent fabricator. If nowhere local to you, plenty online that will cut to size and supply only - as ever, compare prices and many will send you out a free sample of the product if you wish to take a look

    Will work a treat !

    Search as per my reply - ‘PVC wall cladding’

    Brand / supplier / can’t recommend but all much of a muchness - price will vary though so a consideration to look into and also a cut to size service, not just supplying as full sheets

    Perhaps your local folks might be able to cut and post as I don't need large sizes. You recommending is a bit bonus to me. Do you have their contact details email etc?
