Decorative panels have been used to create unique, interesting looks in commercial settings for ages. They also look great in homes. These different options offer new takes on texture, material, and shape. They take your home’s style up a notch beyond the traditional paint or wallpaper seen everywhere.
Below are a few of the latest trends in decorative wall panels.
Gypsum Wall Panels
In homes and businesses today, gypsum panels are the most popular form of decorative panels. These panels are also referred to as 3D panels because they offer looks with various raised textures. Gypsum wall panels are made of plaster or a mixture of plaster and materials.
Gypsum panels are moderately strong, though they are best suited to areas that will not receive frequent mechanical impact such as narrow corridors. Bumps and force can dent or ruin the raised effect of the panels. They work well in low-humidity environments such as living rooms, offices, and bedrooms.
When the gypsum panels are hung, the labourer matches up the seams to create the desired effect. They can also be painted whichever colour you want.
3D wall panels come in a variety of shapes and designs, making them an especially stylish and relevant choice for any style home or business. You can find waves, bricks, or squares. The options are beyond plentiful. 3D panels look great on a single wall, a decorative column, or large portions of the premises such as running down a long hallway or up a tall wall.
Wood Wall Panels
Wood panels can be made from natural wood, MDF, or chipboard. While the natural wood options can be a bit more expensive, they are among the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly options available as well. The colour, panel size, finish, and texture of these pieces can be tailored to suit several different styles. Since there is such a variety of finishes, these wood panels can fit in traditional, contemporary, and modern settings.
Panels made from MDF and those that are veneered look especially beautiful in offices, libraries, and large living rooms. These pieces have been used to cover the walls in an entire room or create a focus wall that really pops.
Decorative Fabric Panel
Decorative fabric panels can look amazing on walls and ceilings. These options provide a soft gentle look and can be easy to care for. They are created in a similar manner to soft furniture by first beginning with a solid base, then applying layers of foam, and finally the fabric. The shape and size can vary from design to design. They can be structured as a single square or a tufted headboard. They can be a bit more labour-intensive for the person installing them, making them a bit more expensive.
Fabric panels are frequently used in restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. In a home, they would make a beautiful addition to a bedroom, office, or den.
We’ll all have to keep an eye on these trends. Plus, there are even more options available on the market. The only limit is your imagination. If you’re ready to step up that style, contact a local wall panel retailer to get started.
