Consider Adding Texture To Your Walls

Consider Adding Texture To Your Walls

Consider Adding Texture to Your Walls! 

The newest trend in walls this year is going bold with texture. Boring, plain flat walls with a simple coat of paint are being swapped with textured walls to create more visual interest. Adding texture to your walls requires someone highly skilled in drywall services in Kitchener, such as the team at Handyman Connection. We can help you pick out the right combination of effects to fit the style of your space. Here’s how textured walls can add more warmth, sophistication and uniqueness to your home.

Elevate Your Space

Textured walls go well with this year’s trend of incorporating neutral elements into your room’s design. Using texture, designers can create a space using a basic neutral colour palette and various materials. A textured room can add more drama to a large, open space and create various zones for coziness. It can also make a smaller, cramped room feel more open and welcoming. Designers are experimenting with different materials, such as wood, fur, pampas grass, mixed metals and stone for texture.

More homeowners are opting for natural elements inside of their homes, such as rattan, stone and plants. Texturing a room can go also beyond the walls. Contractors can add texture effects to a space’s walls and then add additional layers of accessories to the space to unify the room and bring the theme together. They do this by adding plants, shelving, artwork, finishing trim and panelling. 

Shiplap

One way designers get some texture and visual interest added to a room is by installing shiplap to the walls. Shiplap is a rustic wooden siding element that can be used indoors to create a vintage effect. The warmth of the shiplap instantly adds texture and beauty to a space. The wooden boards can also be part of a larger design scheme in a space when paired with other natural elements, such as fur accents, tile, marble and grasses.

Woven Walls

Wallpaper with different texture effects can also be picked out and used in a room design. A popular option for texture-lovers is the woven wall look. Woven design wallpaper may feature patterns that look like fabric, linen, grass and other natural elements. This can be the unifying element for a larger space and can be complemented with other neutral design pieces, such as a large, white comfy couch and wicker baskets.

Plaster

Plaster is also making a comeback into homes this year. Plastering a wall is best left to the professional contractors who have skills in home repairs and plasterwork. A skilled professional can create unique texture with plaster on your home’s walls. Plaster can also be tinted to give the space a warm hint of colour.

Architectural Elements

Textures can also be used to highlight your home’s architectural elements. Instead of texturing the entire wall in a room, you may choose to focus the texture on an accent wall or around a fireplace. Textures may also be put on the ceiling to give the room a dramatic makeover.
