Perhaps you have just moved into a new home, or you are ready to renovate your current one. Regardless of your situation, if you are looking to do any type of design work, you will have many decisions to make. One of your main decisions, one that could make or break your budget, is what materials to use. Your materials can influence cost dramatically, and some have to be installed by professionals (if you want it to look good, that is). Make sure you do your research ahead of time, and choose the best possible materials for your home renovation.
If you were looking to add texture to a wall, for instance, perhaps in the event of a stone shower or a brick accent wall, would you opt for authentic stone or brick? Or, would you choose faux stone paneling?
At Faux Direct, we believe the best option in these instances are faux wall paneling. The reasons are as follows.
Faux wall paneling is incredibly affordable. Because it is made from a synthetic material, you will not be spending the same type of prices that you would if you were to choose authentic stone or brick. All of our faux wall paneling is made from a high quality polyurethane material. It begins in foam form, and is cast from authentic brick or stone. The end result, once dried, is painted to look exactly the same. The only giveaway that the panels aren’t authentic will be how lightweight they are. Which brings us to our next reason.
Faux wall paneling can be installed on your own. Yep, that’s right, faux wall paneling is DIY. And who doesn’t want to jump on the DIY train nowadays? The only requirements for installation are a few standard tools, either caulk or glue, and a little willpower. Most faux wall paneled projects are completed in several hours.
The third and final benefit of going faux vs. real is that faux wall panels will last for years to come. The same cannot be said for stone or brick, as these easily chip and crack. Faux wall paneling is super resilient, and will not crack, chip, or dent. Polyurethane, by nature, is a closed cell material. So, on top of being incredibly tough, your panels will not absorb any type of moisture, making them resistant to mold, mildew, and rot. They are also UV resistant, weatherproof, and fire rated!
Doesn’t get much better than that, folks!
