There is no better way to transform the interior of a room than by decorating the walls with unique specialized wall finishes. Thus, when choosing a material, you should not simply consider “how nice it will look”, but also consider its practicality. Rooms, after all, have their own specific functions.
Take a look at the most popular types of finishings for walls, plus their pros and cons. You will find our list of the most popular wall finishing materials in our hit parade below, along with all the necessary information.
Perhaps the most popular version of the decor of a room is the wallpaper. From simple paper to vinyl and even 3D prints, there are different types of wallpaper available. For these specialized wall finishes, the material selection is determined by the room.
For example, vinyl wallpaper (washable) is better for kitchens. Obviously, it is very convenient, as you can clean the walls of soot and other dirt at any time. In the bathroom, you need to choose a moisture-resistant wallpaper, otherwise it will absorb moisture and come off. As a result, fungi or mold can appear and who wants that?
There are several solutions to the problem in the kids’ room: washable and lightweight paper (weights up to 110 g/m3) wall covering. It is more cost-effective and practical to choose the first option. This will be the perfect solution for a variety of “surprises” from the most active family members.
Nonwoven, liquid, textile, photo, 3D wallpaper will look great in the living room. Depending on the design, any of these options can be your ideal choice.
Plaster Decor makes for a unique specialized wall finish
The phrase “wall stucco” is most often associated with aligning surfaces and other rough work.
However, today, decorative plaster is a great solution for the original decoration of a room. Firstly, it varies in properties, technical qualities, and appearance depending on what it’s made from (acrylic, mineral, silicate, etc.). Secondly, patterns can be applied to a variety of scenarios.
The simple act of moving the spatula in the right way can bring the room back to its original look. It can be considered a disadvantage that the material is difficult to apply. That’s where we come in! Check out our unique sample textures, plaster-based, and color-washed designs in our samples gallery.
Wall finishing with tiles is a popular choice
Tile stands out as a specialized wall finish. It is resistant to moisture, temperature drops, and other problems. It is, therefore, best suited to the bathroom and kitchen. The disadvantage is the complexity and high cost of the process. For example, the tile “cotto forte” would perfectly complement any interior, but not everyone can afford its cost. If you can, it’s worth the expense.
A room’s interior is determined by the appearance of the materials (ceramic, glass, PVC, etc.), each of which has its own characteristics.
You can usually find PVC panels in offices, shopping malls, and other commercial establishments. Plastic is not a natural material. As a result, it is rarely used in the bedroom or living room.
However, plastic panels will be a great addition to any kitchen or bathroom, due to their combination of properties. Additionally, the material is easy to assemble, and any item can be easily replaced in case of damage.
Wall finishes using Paint
Paint is the most common and inexpensive product used to change the look and feel of the interior and exterior of your space.
Because of the diversity of colors, textures, and forms, you can decorate the room in a variety of ways. With a figured roller (or other specialized tools), you can transform your apartment into a work of art.
It’s important to note that even textured paint requires perfectly flat walls. If not, you risk not getting the desired outcome.
The pros are:
- Operation is easy,
- Material opportunities for decorating the room at a low cost,
The con is that any defects or irregularities in the walls are highlighted by paint.
An interior space can be finished in a variety of ways at the base and finish layers. There are several options for the base layer, including drywall materials, plywood, particleboard, and solid wood panels, as well as plaster and cement board.
There are many options for the finish layer, such as paint, plaster, tile, stone, carpet, cork, laminates, reinforced plastic, wall coverings made of vinyl, textile, fiber or paper, etc.
When choosing the appropriate wall finish for the finish layer, there are a number of characteristics to take into account, including abrasion resistance, water resistance, and moisture resistance.
The choice of color and finish of the wall finish is crucial to the feeling of space and light within a space.
