.Of course, along with furniture and appliances, walls are the most prominent in the eyes. They occupy the largest part of the surface in the room, and they fundamentally influence the perception of the whole interior: if the furniture is selected with taste, and everything is arranged in places, and the wall decoration doesn’t fit into the interior, then it is unlikely to be perceived organically.
Despite the fact that after performing all the previous dirty stages of repair work, the choice of the finishing method seems to be nothing, but you will see the final layer all the time, so you should be careful about its choice. Consider the most popular, as well as the most interesting ways to finish the walls, determining which type of room they are most suitable for.
Painting walls - one of the most popular ways of finishing. With the help of paint you can achieve amazing effects, especially if you combine several colors, create drawings and patterns. So, a certain color can work wonders with the room: if you choose it correctly, you can visually expand the space or make the room warmer, lighter, depending on what needs to be corrected. The rooms facing the south side can be painted in cold shades, in the north - in warm ones. Light and pastel colors somewhat expand the space, while dark ones, on the contrary, narrow, therefore, in each particular case, a different shade is chosen, taking into account both the designer's idea and the tenants' preferences.
As for the types of paints, today water-based, glue, enamel, and also oil-based paints are most often used to cover the walls. They all have some special features.
So, enamel and oil paints can be combined into a group of alkyd. Their advantages are tremendous resistance to water, to ultraviolet, they can be applied in any way: even with a roller, even with a spray, even with a brush, they quickly dry, form a solid surface. But, nevertheless, they are not resistant to alkalis and are flammable, and staining should be carried out in the conditions of ventilation, since there is still a smell after that. Suitable for wooden, metal, plastered surfaces.
water-based inks are significantly better in terms of virtually no odor. Here the coloring pigments are dissolved in water, and after application, the water evaporates, and a smooth, smooth surface forms on the walls. This paint dries quickly, allows you to choose absolutely any shade, as the color can be formed by adding the appropriate pigment. In addition, it is easy to apply, and then all the tools are easily washed from the paint. There are practically no drawbacks, but still it is not suitable for laminated and glossy surfaces. It is worth noting that among these colors there are also some subspecies, but the general characteristics are the same. When buying a water-based paint, you should beware of fakes: they are much worse during application and operation.
There are also glue paints , which contain starch, polyvinyl alcohol, cellulose ethers, casein solution and some other substances. This type of coating is very similar to water-based paint, but it is afraid of water, but passes air, i.e.breathes
There are also silicate paints , which have breathability, resistance to temperature changes, water ingress, etc. They are well behaved in operation, but when applying you need to be careful, as part of the alkali. This limits the colors and scope: it can not be used for stone, glass and metal, but for plaster - this is a great option.
Where to use? Walls can be painted in any room, and if in the living room, bedroom, nursery, etc.it is possible to use paint completely for the entire surface, only by combining its color, then for kitchens and bathrooms it is better to combine paint, for example, with ceramic tiles.
Well, what other wall material is more common than wallpaper? Since there are different types of wallpapers, their use is almost unlimited, however, they are more suitable for rooms where there are no negative factors, such as moisture and dirt. But since there are different types of waterproof wallpaper, for example, glass wall paper, vinyl wallpaper, liquid wallpaper, and the scope of their use is expanding.
With the help of wallpaper you can create an amazing interior: if we are used to paper, then wall-paper make a highlight to the room, glass wallpaper, non-woven and linkrust can be painted, fabric wallpaper makes the room very cozy and unusual.
Wall papering is easy to handle on your own, although some types( photo wallpaper, linkrust) will require some skill.
Where to use? Each type of wallpaper has its own characteristics: paper, for example, is preferable to use in the living room and bedrooms, but the vinyl for the bedroom is no longer suitable, because they do not breathe. But at the same time, paper wallpaper - this is a bad option for the kitchen, and glass wall covering can quite cope, although it is still better to equip the working area in the kitchen with something even more powerful.
This is a modern type of wall decoration, which allows you to create an original coating in a fairly simple way, but it will be sustainable and durable. Depending on the filler, the plaster may look slightly different and have different operational properties. Here is just a short list of possible options for decorative plaster:
- textured - here are based on synthetic materials and various fillers, both natural and artificial origin. Depending on what type of filler is used here, a certain relief is obtained on the wall after drying;
- terrazitovaya. The composition includes mica, with the result that its appearance is easily recognizable, but most often it is used in public places;
- latex - practically not afraid of mechanical damage;
- silicate - do not swell and are slightly susceptible to contamination;
- Venetian plaster due to the special application technique has a surface like that of polished marble;
- tadelakt - plaster, which is not exposed to moisture and water, and it does not contain any synthetic additives.
Regardless of the characteristics of different types of plasters, they all have a lot of advantages: their layer hides minor defects of the walls, and the most difficult preparation of the surface for its application is not needed. The finished coating is not afraid of moisture, it can be wiped with a damp cloth, and it can be applied on almost any surface - from wood to concrete.
Where to use? Decorative plaster due to its decorative and operational properties can find its application in the hall and bedroom, and in the hallway, and even the kitchen, not to mention the public places.
It is difficult to come up with the same durable, aesthetic, diverse material as ceramic tiles. It is distinguished by a huge choice of sizes and patterns - so there should be no questions when finishing the walls, it is fire-resistant, environmentally friendly, not affected by moisture, water, chemicals, etc., is easy to maintain, therefore it is used where possible isinfluence.
When choosing a tile, you should pay attention not only to its appearance and size, but also to its technical characteristics. So, in terms of water resistance, it is divided into 8 groups: the first
- is characterized by the fact that it absorbs only 3% of moisture, the second
- - 6%, the third
- - 10%.
For an apartment, if the tile is used in the bathroom and kitchen, it is better to choose the first or second class, for the hallway the option that is much less resistant to water is also suitable.
There is also a classification depending on how much the tile is influenced by chemicals:
In the kitchens and bathrooms, aggressive means are not used, so this indicator can not be particularly taken into account, but it is better not to take the tile of the lowest class C, as there is no guarantee that some dose ofchemical.
Where to use? Naturally, in kitchens, bathrooms, it is also possible in hallways and in those places where a large impact is made on the walls. Tiles can be combined with other types of finishes, as walls cleanly tiled, sometimes look a little repulsive, and in the bathroom you can combine tiles of different sizes, colors and textures.
Natural and Artificial Stone
Natural Stone is expensive, luxurious and very durable. Probably, telling that natural stones are little affected by any influence is not worth it. Marble, granite are able to hold on in their original form for about a hundred years, while the coating will be unique, since nature will not be able to repeat the exact same stone.
The artificial stone is devoid of many of the inherent flaws. So, it is much easier, so you will not need to fix the foundation to decorate the walls a little, it is easier to install, and much cheaper. Its variety is great: different colors, different textures, imitation of brick, marble, granite, sandstone, etc., and some of the options look very good and even natural, as responsible manufacturers use a lot of different blanks to make the same shapethe stone was not repeated often - namely, this is a guarantee that the stone would be perceived as naturally as possible.
The stone is great for interior walls, but only in combination with other materials, otherwise you can get the effect of a dark medieval castle, and if it is not in your plans, then it is better to decorate only individual elements with stone. So, often decorate the door or window openings, arches, the space near the table in the kitchen, the head of the bed, the wall near the fireplace, etc.- There are many options, and with a skillful combination you can get very stylish rooms.
Where to use? Since the stone for interior wall finishing is not used as a solid coating, its elements can be present in absolutely all the rooms - everything depends on the designed interior design.
wall panels wall panels are a material with which you can transform a room beyond recognition just instantly by the standards of finishing works, and to do it without dirty processes. Wall panels have a wide variety of textures, and can even imitate wood or stone, perfectly combined with other types of finishes. They are durable, easy to clean, can be mounted on any surface, even on uneven. Depending on how the panels are located on the wall and are mounted among themselves, they are divided into tile, sheet and slatted.
Different materials can be used for production, so the panels can be plastic, wooden, chipboard or fiberboard, plasterboard, cork, etc. The properties of these materials are slightly different: plastic plates, for example, have excellent moisture resistance, are easy to operate.
Where to use? Suitable for living room, hallway, kitchen, bedroom, and can be combined with others with other elements of decoration.
Cork coating is made from crushed crushed cork. As a result, plates or rolls are obtained, the difference between which, except for the price, plates are more expensive. The coating has, as a rule, a poor selection of colors - these are shades of brown. It adds to the room heat and sound insulation, characterized by resistance against various microorganisms.
Where to use? Often used for cladding walls of balconies, as well as bedrooms, halls, and sometimes hallways.
In addition to all the above coatings, others can be used, for example, mosaic, which is made up not only of ceramic tiles, but also of metal. Looks interesting leather tiles, glass and mirrors, etc.
In addition to the fact that a specific wall covering, according to its functional characteristics, is only suitable for a certain type of room, but also by its appearance it should be chosen to fit into the interior. For example, fabric wallpaper or linkrust wallpaper is very difficult to fit into a high-tech interior, and there are many such examples, so the choice of decoration requires a responsible approach.
