Home renovations, redecorations, or redesigns (whatever word floats your boat) all involve a good amount of planning.  A huge part of this plan, in addition to deciding what it is you are renovating and how you will accomplish it, is to decide what materials you are going to use.  There are several factors to keep in mind when choosing your materials in order to assure you get the best possible outcome for your renovation.

The first factor to consider is cost.  You most likely have a budget put in place (if you are wise) and need to choose materials that are going to fit inside this budget, while still allowing you to accomplish your entire renovation without going over.  Because of this, you need to choose materials that will not break the bank.

The second factor to consider is time.  How long will it take to install the material you choose?  Will you be able to do it yourself, or will you have to hire out?  (This will also add into the cost factor).  How long will the interior of your home be in shambles while these materials are being installed?

The third and final factor to consider is durability.  How long will these materials last?  Are they known to be able to ‘weather the storm’?  Or will they involve lots of upkeep and maintenance?  The last thing you want to do is spend a lot of money on a material because it is supposedly “the best” but end up putting all of your efforts into keeping it clean and looking good.

Now that you have a good idea on the important factors to consider when choosing your materials, you probably want to know what the best material is that fits all of these criteria.  Lucky for you, we have the answer.  And that answer is faux wall paneling.

Faux wall paneling, which comes in faux stone, faux brick, and faux wood is affordable, time efficient, and durable.  It costs a fraction of the price of authentic brick, stone, and wood because it is made from a polyurethane material.  This does not compromise the quality, however, because the end result is uncanny.  The only giveaway is how lightweight the panels are.  However, this brings us to our next factor.  Because the panels are so lightweight, they can be installed on your own.  A typical faux wall paneling project takes roughly several hours, or a single afternoon.  Last but not least, they are extremely durable.  Faux wall paneling is built to last.  It is impervious to moisture, making it resistant to mold, mildew, and rot.  They are UV resistant and weatherproof, if you choose to use them outdoors.  They are also fire rated if you wish to place them around a heat source.  Doesn’t get much better than that!  Faux wall paneling is the ultimate and perfect material for any renovation project.
