Jungle-themed large-print wallpaper

Wall finishes are one of the most important design elements in both commercial and residential interiors. Gone are the days when a commercial interior designer would put together a color palette based simply on looks and preferred style. Today, the design process is concerned with psychological, social, environmental and sustainable aspects. Often we ask ourselves: How will this color or the texture of this material make us feel? Whether in a restaurant, store, hotel lobby or hotel room, there are certain positive psychological reactions we want to bring out in our customers. These new wall finish trends exemplify just that.

Large-print wallpaper or custom graphics

Applying large-size prints on walls creates an instant landscape of color and shapes whose effect is a strong emotional response. For examples these “jungle” patterns bring about a sense of calm, and a feeling of safety and wonder at the same time. Who wouldn’t want to relax for a few minutes in a “jungle room?”

Another great advantage that custom wallpaper comes with is the ability to update a space with little effort. If the old print becomes too old for your taste or brand, it may take as little as a couple of hours to replace it.

Bamboo is the number one choice for many commercial interior designers who appreciate its environmental qualities. It is remarkably strong, lasts forever, and has a beautiful natural look suitable for offices to restaurant to stores. Because of its strength and excellent surface texture, you don’t have to worry about hitting bamboo walls with furniture or spilling liquids on walls.

Slab-size concrete tile

Concrete surfaces have a sleek look that makes them a favorite material for a lot of designers interested in atypical contemporary solutions. Concrete finishes have a cool feel and are undeniably ideal for modern, edgy-style stores or restaurants. 

Interior designers have always faced a serious challenge when trying to use expensive poured concrete on site. Today, making concrete is becoming even more expensive and the sand used in its production is in short supply. These beautiful large-size tiles can be used in the place of poured concrete without the mess and the high price.

Slab-size concrete tiles come in various colors and sizes and contrast beautifully with wood, natural stone and even metal. Large concrete or concrete-looking tiles seem to be on the short list of new wall finish trends that are appreciated by designers with a penchant for out-of-the-box solutions.
