Are walls important for interior design?

Walls are not just load-bearing structural support but also a canvas for creativity, which can give your home incredible comfort and style.

During the pandemic, we spend more time at home and no longer want to look at boring white walls.

A new trend that came to us from Asia is the use of architectural film. It has several advantages over the standard renovation methods. Firstly, the film imitates original materials such as wood, marble, cement, metal, fabric, leather, etc. Secondly, it is a durable, fire-rated, antibacterial, and antifungal finishing solution. Also, renovation with the film costs 50% less than traditional renovation approaches.

Wood wall treatment ideas or wood imitation wall coverings

We have been spending more time indoors for the last two years, often lacking proximity to nature. Wood can bring warmth and comfort to your home. Unfortunately, the price of lumber has increased significantly, and the cost of such projects can be extremely high. Thankfully, the wood patterns of the Bodaq film cost $3.5 per square foot. If the price is not enough to convince you, wood patterns look and feel like natural wood.

Look at the pictures below to see how the W951 Oak pattern from the Wood Collection looks.

Ideas for Covering a Wall with Leather

Leather always looks expensive and beautiful. Delicate brown shades give a charm to the room.

Leather goes very well with wooden elements, such as chairs, tables, bedside tables, floor, etc. In most cases, this material requires careful care. It is difficult to clean and easy to damage. Sometimes it’s a shame when deep scratches or other damage remain on the skin, which is very noticeable. The architectural film is devoid of these disadvantages. It is durable, sustainable, imitates genuine leather, and easy to clean.

In the pictures below, you can see the pattern from our catalog TNS04 Beige Leather.

Wall treatment ideas with marble slabs or imitations on them

Marble is the material that has remained relevant for several millennia. The interior with marble walls looks very expensive. Due to its naturalness, marble is always in demand. Due to the high prices for marble, not everyone can afford to make an entire wall. The average price per square foot is $60, not including work and transportation. The architectural film allows you to get the same result but for $10 with installation per square foot. In addition, the installation requires much fewer hours.

Walls with matte finishing

Not everyone likes textured walls, preferring pure monochrome options. A distinctive feature of the film is that the film is much more durable than paint. Interior wall finishes with a special film prevents the appearance of fungus at high humidity levels. Paint can peel off, scratch, or lose its attractiveness.
