Wall tiles: tiles

Ideal for coating bathrooms, kitchens and outdoor areas, the tiles have become a trend in decoration. Very durable and resistant, this type of coating can be found in different colors, designs and formats. For those who like a retro style, the choice for the tile is ideal.

For the installation, however, you should seek the help of a trained specialist. If you get tired of the tile, you can replace it with another one by laying it on or using wall stickers.

Check out some tiled floor designs:

Wall covering: tablets

The pellets are sensitive and versatile coating options. Available in a variety of colors and materials, lozenges are widely used in bathrooms, but you can see them in kitchen designs and outdoors.

To use them, you can choose either an entire wall or a single vertical or horizontal banner. In bathrooms, they are often in the box or above the sink.

In the kitchen they are most often seen at the sink. Attention to inserting the inserts, in case of doubt, call a professional.

Check out some tablet designs and get inspired:

Wallpaper: stones and marble

Stones, marble and granite give the environment a rustic and natural air. Very often used in kitchens, TV or dining rooms and as external wall cladding, such as balconies, conservatories, etc.

However, this type of coating is also not suitable for those who are thinking about frequent changes in the environment. To place another coating, it is necessary to completely remove the stones or marble, as this type of surface treatment does not even allow another layer to be overlaid.

The help of a professional in the installation is also welcome.

Wall covering: wallpaper / sticker

The wallpaper is an old acquaintance of decorators and architects. They decorate room walls, bedrooms, hallways, halls and wherever the imagination allows. They are only suitable for wet areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and outdoor areas.

Wall stickers play a role, which is very similar to wallpaper, but give the ability to be placed in environments where the background image cannot come close. It is therefore common to see stickers in the kitchen and bathroom, for example.

What do you have in common? Decorative adhesives and wallpapers not only have a trend in decoration, but also the advantage that they can be imagined in a wide variety of sizes, colors, designs and formats.

They are one of the few types of flooring where you can do the installation yourself without professional help. You just need to pay attention to a few details, such as the formation of bubbles that can imperfect the paper or adhesive and affect the end result.

Otherwise, just enjoy the look these coatings bring. And if it’s bad, just take it and put it on. No dirt, no cracks.

Wall covering: structured mass

The textured mass is ideal for covering the semi-fair wall of the house, as this type of coating does not require any preparation of the wall and can even be passed on to the wall without plastering or painting.

With the structured mass, you can make different types of drawings only with the roller or trowel. Just like paper and wall stickers, the structured mass can be applied in a do-it-yourself style. But if you don’t have many skills, a painter can do the job for you.

After application, it is possible to paint the wall of the color you want, or in the white, original color of the mass.

Check out some models of the wall coated with textured mass below:
