Vinyl Lattice Panel Patterns and Colors

A Multitude of Lattice Patterns

Deciding the right pattern (you can even create your own!) and color of lattice panel for your project is easy because you have a wide variety from which to choose.

Intricately Cut Black Vinyl Lattice Panel
Traditionally, lattice panels, especially those made from wood, typically had a diamond pattern, required regular maintenance, and did not wear very well. However, vinyl lattice panels can be cut to almost any design (with limitations) as you can see below from our friends at Acurio Latticeworks.

Vinyl Lattice Panel Color Options

You'll find most vinyl lattice panels in black or white which are typically the most popular colors; however, we have found them in shades of tan, cedar, brown, and gray.

The color of vinyl lattice from Acurio Latticeworks is saturated through the entire piece meaning if it is cut or scratched, the color remains the same.

Ideas for Using Vinyl Lattice Panels

Vinyl panels are the ideal solution for porch skirting, railings, privacy, gardens, concealment, screen doors, gates, fences, and so much more. Uae our handy directory below to explore lots of options and ideas for using lattice panels:

Use Your Imagination: How to Use Vinyl Lattice Panels

Vinyl panels are indeed versatile. Check out this quick list of ideas.
  • Privacy Screens: Create attractive privacy screens around your patio, deck, or pool area. You'll still get airflow and natural light.
  • Garden Trellis: Add a refreshing vertical element to your garden for your climbing vines and roses. Even jasmine. The plants will eventually weave through the openings. Secure the panel well against a wall or fence so it doesn't fall.
  • Outdoor Dividers: Create distinct outdoor spaces with vinyl panels. For example, separate your eating area from your lounging area or create a separate potting area by hanging a panel.
  • Create a Decorative Wall Accent: Attach to an exterior wall to create a design, texture and visual interest. You can also include outdoor lighting for evening ambiance.
  • Air Conditioner or Garbage Bin Enclosure: Hide your a/c or garbage bins with lattice panels. Be sure to leave enough space for proper ventilation and ease of use.
  • Outdoor Backdrop: Have a special occasion coming up such as a wedding or photo shoot? Decorate the lattice with fairy lights, vines, flowers or anything that extends the theme of your occasion.

Porch Skirting

Porch skirting is used frequently on front porches and decks to hide the floor joists and posts visible underneath the structures. Vinyl panels also make for perfect mobile home skirting ideas. But it doesn't have to be boring and it can be maintenance free unlike typical wood lattice. Here are a few examples of custom vinyl lattice porch skirting.

A Note About Painting Vinyl or PVC

Vinyl or PVC can be painted; however, it may require additional preparation and/or special paint (like Fusion for PlasticĀ® from Krylon) to ensure proper results. We recommend you research "How To Paint PVC or Vinyl" on the internet prior to purchase if your goal is to repaint the PVC.

Mary and I know you will be inspired by watching our short video showing you a few ideas for using these lattice panels. Then use our convenient directory below to find your favorite use for this product.

Exterior House Trim

Vinyl lattice trim can be custom designed and painted any color to complement your home's colors.

Whether used on residential homes or businesses, vinyl lattice offers so many more options than wood and does not require any maintenance.

Use vinyl panels to create lots of curb appeal as running trim between columns. You can also use it as brackets and as other trim pieces too. We really like the idea you can create intricate patterns without having to sand and paint every year.

Lattice Privacy Screen

Vinyl lattice is perfect for creating treasured privacy, whether on your front porch, deck, or yard. Lattice privacy fence and decking lattice are very popular, not only because you can choose from standard panels but you can also create intricate designs for both privacy and appeal.

Don't Get Confused Between Vinyl Lattice and Plastic Lattice

In general, vinyl lattice can last for many years with little to no maintenance. It doesn't degrade easily, nor does it peel or decay like wood. It is mold, mildew and insect resistant. Many vinyl lattice products have either extended warranties or carry a lifetime warranty.

Another nice feature is you don't have to paint or seal it and vinyl is stable meaning it won't warp, crack, or splinter when nailing or screwing into frames. You can easily use it for horizontal applications like covering gazebos as it does not sag when supported properly. When cut, exposed edges remain color fast.

Plastic (or HDPE) lattice has some of the same features as vinyl; however, plastic can collect mold and mildew due to its textured appearance and thus will require regular maintenance.

When attaching plastic lattice, pre-drill holes for either nails or screws to prevent cracking. When attaching plastic lattice be sure to leave room for expansion as it can contract or expand depending on environmental factors. Unlike vinyl lattice, raw edges may expose an interior color that is different than the exterior color

How to Hang or Install Vinyl Lattice

Vinyl lattice panels are easy to install. For our privacy panels I made my own wooden frames. However, you can use either u-channels or h-channels easily found at your local home supply store.

You an also screw it directly to framing or drill holes and hang it in desire locations. See our link to our concealment project below for an example of how to install lattice panels.

Product Review

Summary of Our Vinyl Lattice Panel Product Review

After seeing and working with these vinyl lattice panels from Acurio Latticeworks, we share these thoughts:
  • The product is very attractive and surprisingly sturdy
  • Easy to work with
  • Although we prefer wood in most of our projects, the easy maintenance of vinyl is hard to beat (no painting or staining needed)
  • Suggestion: Put some thought into the color you choose. Acurio offers 10 colors. Even black - which we hear is very hard to find. We were quick to choose white, but medium gray or beige would have been great for our project, too.
  • We really like this product especially for its nice patterns, colors and sturdiness. You will also appreciate that you can work with their staff to design your own custom pattern.
  • We were not paid to review their product; however, Acurio Latticeworks sent us some courtesy vinyl panels to try. Our findings are our own honest opinion.
