Less conventional finishes for walls 1


We are used to covering the walls of the house with paint or wallpaper, and perhaps in some areas use wood or even cork sheets, but today there is a large list of novel and modern materials to cover the vertical surfaces of our house and give it a different finish. We can choose metal plates, glass, resins, stone, brick, ceramic, etc.

- Metallic foils: Among the metals used for interior decoration, the most notable for its versatility are stainless steel with or without chrome plating. They are widely used in kitchens on countertops and walls near the cooking area but they can also be covered with walls in other areas of the house if we want to give an industrial look to a living room or a game room. They combine very well with wooden furniture and leather.


- Brick: we can cover the interior walls of some of our rooms with brick, we will create a very current effect, but it is not advisable to abuse this type of coating, it is best to use it on only one of the walls of a room and paint the rest in Light colors. It is also a material that adapts very well to kitchens and is perfect for decorating lofts and industrial-type floors with large spaces. For small areas it can be a bit overwhelming since it absorbs a lot of light, but you can solve it with adequate lighting.

- Crystal: glass and crystal are perfect for cladding or even replacing some walls of our house and making it easier for light to enter from outside. There is a wide variety of crystals applicable to this type of decorations, from 100% recycled glass called bio-glass and which are presented in the form of easy-to-place panels, armored glass that protect the most classic paves or bricks from introsus. glass that can be used to let the light pass without being seen from the other side.
