Wall Covering: What You Need to Know

The choice of wall covering is crucial for professionals as it must enhance the room while protecting the walls as best possible. Read below for detailed information on wall coverings, the different types of materials and their features.


What is Wall Covering?

First of all, what is the definition of ”wall covering” ? In a nutshell, wall covering refers to the material applied to vertical surfaces to decorate and protect them. Wall coverings can be made from different materials in different aspects. Some are made of marble, others are ceramic, or even PVC.

Although the floor covering is deemed more important, the choice of wall covering plays a decisive role in a room's aesthetics. It is key to personalising your design and should align with the style chosen for the room.
