If you haven’t heard, faux wall paneling is the latest and greatest addition to any home or business. Interior designers all over the place are using them because of their cost efficiency, amazing look, and durability. They can be used for literally almost anything you can imagine! People are creating a number of things, such as: accent walls, gorgeous showers and bathtubs, kitchen backsplashes, basements, wine cellars, man caves, wainscoting, fireplaces, kitchen islands, exterior walls of home, pool areas, outdoor kitchens, and so much more. Basically, anywhere there is a wall you can add faux wall paneling.
Interior designers, specifically, love working with faux wall paneling because it opens up room in their budget for other projects. When using faux stone, faux wood, or faux brick paneling- you are going to end up saving a heck of a lot more money than you would if you were to use the real deal. The reason for this is because they are made out of a polyurethane material, rather than the authentic stuff. However, this does not compromise the look. The polyurethane begins in a foam form, and is cast from the real stone, brick, or wood. When it dries, the end result is almost uncanny. It is then painted to complete the faux look. The only giveaway that these things aren’t real is how lightweight they are (which makes them easy to install). Because they are DIY, you get to eliminate installation costs too!
Faux wall panels are also coveted due to how durable they are. Polyurethane, by nature, is a closed cell material. This means they are impervious to all types of moisture, making them resistant to mold, mildew, and rot. They are also resistant to termites! If you are concerned about using them outdoors, don’t be! Faux wall panels are UV resistant and designed to withstand the effects of all types of weather, both hot and cold. At Faux Direct, we also have fire rated panels available should you decide to place them around a heat source such as a fireplace or stove. Because of their durability, faux wall panels are incredibly durable. There is virtually no space they cannot be used in, except for on flooring because they are not meant to be walked on.
