Walls can be more than just eye candy
OK, when you were growing up you may have had a ‘wallpaper experience’. Mine is hard-wired into my memory. Whilst I may forget what I did last weekend, I will never forget the arrival of a flimsy room-divider clad in knotty pine wallpaper and crowned with a large brass peacock. Whatever stylistic aspirations this ensemble had at the time, the wallpaper itself had just one function… visual. It covered the wall, pure and simple, and it sat there doing its knotty pine best to impress our retinas.
Modern wall coverings have come a long way and they have transcended their role as visual eye candy. We don’t often stop to think about it in our busy lives, but what if our wall coverings had special qualities that extend the actual functionality of walls. What if they were bestowed with special applications that could turn a wall into a practical utility in any commercial or residential space? Let’s pause a moment and consider some of the remarkable attributes that modern wall coverings can lend to walls…
Wall coverings that allow the use of special dry erase markers for presentations or notes. Predominately used in commercial settings, they would also suit a child’s room or play area.
Wall coverings that allow the use of magnetic appliqués for presentations. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could use this application in your office instead of slow death by Adobe Power Point?
Wall coverings used in commercial applications to reduce the amount of electromagnetic interference associated with many industrial applications such as computer rooms.
Wall coverings with fibres that naturally give off a soothing fragrance such as lavender or jasmine. What a great idea, walls that not only look good but intoxicate the nostrils.
Wall coverings infused with charcoal particles that act as a natural deodorizer. Wouldn’t you just love to put this stuff up in your gym or teenager’s bedroom?
Though traditionally associated with commercial applications, these wall coverings are increasingly being used in homes with expensive surround sound systems or home theatres. These products are specifically engineered to absorb sound energy.
Metallic or Organic
Imagine the stunning impact of real copper or mica flakes infused into your wall coverings.
Glow In The Dark
How cool is this stuff? Wall coverings that create a funky black light environment using fluorescent wallpaper!
