Transforming a space often starts with the walls. You can take a room from “ho hum” to “va-va-voom” with a few brush strokes of new paint or the perfect wallpaper. Both are excellent options that offer immediate results. As an interior decorator, I’m always on the lookout for the latest trends that help elevate my clients’ projects. This includes new ways to look at walls.
I’m excited to tell you about three innovative wallcoverings that help create wall-to-wall “wow!”
Digital print wallpaper
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a wall mural is a great way to start a conversation. This isn’t your dad’s “deer in the woods” mural from the 1970’s. Today’s digital print wallpaper injects hi-res impact. Select imagery from a curated image library, or from your personal photos to create a space as unique as you.
Dry erase wall covering
Boost brainstorming and productivity by turning your entire wall into a dry erase board – REALLY! There are options for high gloss, low gloss (works great with LCD projectors), and even magnetic dry erase wallcoverings. Dry erase is a great option for the office, in a classroom, or for a busy household.
Dry erase wall paint
Dry erase wall paint is an excellent alternative to the dry erase wallcoverings described above. Apply it directly over your current wall color to convert a traditional wall into a dry erase board. A bonus benefit is that it also avoids the health hazards and mess associated with chalkboard paint.
Whether your goal is high impact or interactive idea-sharing, these are three excellent options to consider.
