If you paint it use oil-based paint - stands up much better in non-conditioned areas.

Maybe try something new since you have the chance, e.g., beadboard, shiplap, hardieplank, etc.

If you really, really, really want to go rad - Farmtek sells 1/4" white PVC in 4x8 sheets you can put on the walls, stands up real well to manure and other insults.

I disagree, a quality latex paint should hold up just as well and is easier to apply and/or recoat. A latex enamel [any sheen] will wear better than a flat latex.

Re: mud room walls


Sorry not the answer to your question. Mudroom suggests shoes and you want the shoes dry and possibly prevent any water from icing up. I would put some heat there even if you have to use electric and extention cord.



As for the wall material, I don't think it matters, drywall or a plastic panel. But you probably would want drywall first as a solid backer for thin plastic panels. I'd drywall, paint then put a shoe storage against the wall, wide enough to sit.
