Wallpaper or straight paneling's, when it comes wallcoverings one may think there limitations to the options one has. The reality is, when it comes to wall coverings, the options are endless but more importantly the options for a wall covering come with the ability to have functionality and aesthetic appeal. Residential or commercial space – industrial or not, wall coverings, depending on the choice can prove to be a beneficial asset.
Best Access Doors list an array of wall covering solutions that any contractor, designer or builder would recommend along with their benefits.
Acoustic Wall Coverings
Acoustic wall coverings are an ideal choice for spaces that normally emit sounds that can either result in distractions or abnormally high sound transference. Acoustical wall coverings are similar to soundproof access panel in that they are specifically designed to reduce sound and noise. These types of wall coverings are great in offices, meeting rooms, and corridors. When contractors and designers are deciding on this wall cover, they will often look at the “Noise Reduction Coefficient Rating” (NCR) to determine the level of noise reduction needed.
Where would one install acoustical wall coverings? Rooms with heavy machinery such as HVAC units, fans and industrial or commercial areas where there is the possibility of sound transference.
Floor to Ceiling Tile
Designers will go with this choice to give a room or space that aesthetic pop. With floor to ceiling tiles, it is important to not go overboard as while though this choice of wall covering gives a nice pop, it can become too much and actually counter the goal of simple elegance and style. This choice of a wall covering can be done in any room of a building or home – just important to keep in mind that too much of this on a wall can actually affect the desired outcome.
Typically floor to ceiling tiles are found in bathrooms or rooms that require routine or easy maintenance.
Vinyl Wall Covering
is a perfect choice for areas where there is the potential for moisture build-up or condensation. Vinyl wall coverings are very versatile, and is actually a very common choice for designers, contractors and builders. It can be easily maintained and cleaned, which is why vinyl walls can be typically found in kitchens, bathrooms or areas where hygiene is essential. Due to vinyl being a common choice, it is easily replaceable – simply strip it down and recover with an alternative wall paper or similar one.
Whether one chooses vinyl or maybe an acoustical wall covering, choosing one on functionality will not only lengthen the wall life but it will also contribute to maximizing its purpose. Some wall coverings are a great way of concealing cabinets or even access panels and making them seem less intrusive and obvious.
