Options for internal and external decoration
Nowadays you have a vast choice of colours and finishes that can be used on lime walls. Whatever you choose should be breathable in order to allow moisture to escape. It is no good lime rendering your walls then covering them in a waterproof, plastic-based paint!
Externally you can use a silicate paint, with these you can choose from a wide range of colours. We recommend using paints from Keim Mineral Paints Ltd. You could also use a natural lime wash, which can be coloured using natural pigments. Internally, you could use silicate paints again or clay paint and distemper also have a wide range of colours to choose from.
