Changing trends in the field of fashion entails the emergence of new materials from which panels for wall finishing are made. The classic versions of wallpaper, used to impart special accents, have recently been replaced by special products (panels) created on the basis of high-strength materials. Especially popular are 3d panels.
The decor, carried out in this way, gives the living space greater sophistication, and due to the many advantages of a purely practical nature, the panels are very often used to provide additional protection for the surface of the walls.
Almost all decorative 3D panels for walls are materials consisting of several layers, which is why their main advantage is high strength. 3D panels for walls in the interior are characterized by excellent resistance to various types of physical damage. In addition, a wall decorated with such materials will gain greater attractiveness than before.
These are not the only advantages that are characteristic of decorative 3d panels:
- Versatility. 3D panels are also used to disguise any cracks or irregularities, decorate certain furniture areas, create original partitions between certain areas of residential premises.
- The ability to transfer moisture, exposure to UV rays and steam, temperature drops, damage of the mechanical type. High resistance to several environmental factors provides the ability to use them in any room.
- A wide range of materials. As a basis for creating volumetric panels, different types of materials are used, because of which rooms with specific properties can be equipped with finishing materials with the most suitable characteristics.
- The presence of sound - and heat-insulating properties. Insulating properties become better with increasing thickness of the coating itself.
- Volumetric panels can be used to arrange the rooms where you need to highlight certain accents.
- The lack of great difficulty in the installation process is. Simple materials can be attached to the wall with glue, and large and heavy ones can be attached to the wall using self-tapping screws. However, such decoration may require a little extra space, which will lead to a decrease in visual space.
The main disadvantages relate to the manufacture of crates, designed for reliable fastening of the panels themselves, and the low strength of some materials (for example, wooden 3d panels are soft enough, which negates their resistance to damage).
The main difficulties arise during the cleaning of bulk surfaces. Of course, many panels can not be contaminated, but on the embossed textures very often dust accumulates. Because of this, it is necessary to clean more often.
Types of wall 3d panels
The selection of materials should be carried out, taking into account the characteristics of the room that needs to be arranged.
If you want to decorate a living room, we recommend that you take into account environmental friendliness as well as safety of materials.
If the hallway will act as an object of decoration, you will have to be guided by the parameter of resistance to wear, and if the bathroom or the kitchen, then by moisture resistance.
The quality of the material itself also affects the price of products. You should be perfectly aware that such a decor will hit the wallet more than sticking room wallpaper or other finishing methods. The most budget version of the relief decoration are plastic 3d panels. Such a finish does not have a high level of durability: physical damage always leaves noticeable dents on the surface, which is why they should be applied in hard-to-reach areas.
Polyurethane panels are characterized by one important drawback - fire hazard. On the other hand, polyurethane 3D-panels do not create difficulties in the installation process and have excellent moisture resistance.
If the space is small, it is better to use glossy plastic panels. With proper lighting, the material will create the effect of a space with a large area.
No less impressive look in the interior of the room gypsum 3D panels.
Gypsum is considered a heavier material than plastic. However, the embossed image on gypsum panels can be easily corrected. If desired, the user can smooth the image. Gypsum wall panels are durable and environmentally friendly.
Many people prefer wood panels or 3D panels based on MDF. When installed in a residential area, the material provides high strength and resistance to physical damage. Auxiliary protection of the walls is provided by treatment with varnish. The panels, created on the basis of such material, can be painted, because of what a similar finish can be inscribed in any interior style.
The operation of wood panels must be carried out very carefully, as the material in case of contact with the liquid can swell up a lot.
It is not recommended to place such panels in areas where there are flammable sources.
Alternative wood material is bamboo. For bamboo panels such properties as safety, environmental friendliness and high durability are characteristic. Glue is used to hold these panels on a vertical surface, so the decorating process will not take much time.
Creation of relief design
To provide an interior with comfort and refinement with the help of voluminous wall decorative panels, you are not necessary to be a professional designer. In most cases, it is small fragments of the relief pattern that are used to create beautiful frames for mirrors, panels or paintings.
Relief panels are most often used to create bright and distinct accents on specific surfaces or around the room perimeter. If you think that finishing a widescreen type can make the space less visually, then refer to the method of combining various materials of vertical or horizontal types.
Three-dimensional panels are perfectly suitable for combination with wallpaper of all varieties, however, it is recommended to choose products that do not have distinct textures and patterns. Combining vertically is designed to create certain embossed accents. Often a similar approach is used to raise the ceiling to a higher level.
Combining 3D panels and indoor wallpaper horizontally can be observed very often. Typically, this method of decoration is used for protection purposes: the wall is glued to the bottom with protective panels to prevent possible contamination, damage, and scuffing. However, in terms of aesthetics, this method is less successful.
The places where glue panels are most often glued are:
In this room, the panels can be used to decorate the work area, or rather, to decorate the walls separating the headsets at different levels. If this room has a large area, then the wall next to the table can be decorated with embossed materials.
