Interior wall coverings

Interior wall coverings are chic options to refresh a room without having to commit to any major renovations. It is also an excellent way to hide the faults and imperfections of a damaged wall. It is important to understand the characteristics of each wall covering option in order to make an informed decision. 

 

Light wall coverings  

Light wall coverings, such as wood, are an affordable choice and relatively easy when it comes to installation. A variety of different types of wood, including oak, walnut and maple are available at FlorDeco.

Advantage – This type of wall covering is very low maintenance. 

Good to know – Wood is not recommended for rooms with high humidity. 

Tools and adhesives: - For the installation of light wall coverings, you will need: 

  • Tape measure 
  • Square
  • Level
  • Circular saw or table saw for cutting 
  • Pneumatic nail gun for installation

If you are envisioning a wooden wall installation for the bathroom, make sure to select wood that is not affected by humidity. Wood is not normally recommended for rooms that are humid. In fact, it might be best to go with either ceramic or stone options.

Stone is a beautiful choice when it comes to creating a memorable look. This option is slightly more expensive than wood for covering a similar surface area. FlorDeco offers two collections of stone wall coverings, each available in several shades.
