Recently we discussed the many different choices available for floor design for your home so we thought we’d do a follow up blog focussing on walls. Different wall decorations offer difference advantages over others, for example kitchen tiles may be a better choice for parts of the kitchen where food might splatter but you consider wallpaper for other areas of the kitchen. Here are some of the most popular choices for different types of flooring.
Exposed Brick
Having exposed brick, especially in older houses which sometimes have a feature wall is great for adding a rustic look to any room. Exposing the brickwork and painting it to match the decor colour of the room is good technique but an alternative is to have the exposed brick wall as a stand out feature wall. This creates a great feature in your room and since it stands out, anyone who enters the room will have their eyes drawn to it and so it would be a good place to display your favourite photo or art piece.

Painting or Wallpaper
Painting the walls or putting up wallpaper are both very common methods of decoration and there are many different colours and styles of both paint and wallpaper available. Decorating your room in either of these ways are not hard tasks and you can change the design by stripping the walls easily whenever you want a change. You may not want to use wallpaper in certain rooms, such as in the bathroom due to the moisture from a hot bath or shower, so bathroom tiles are usually a better option. A good technique for a room is to paint or wallpaper one wall in a different, bold colour which stands out from the others.

Wall tiles
Due to how easy wall tiles are to maintain, they make a great choice for the kitchen or bathroom since any food splashes or spills can easily be cleaned. You may not want to have wall tiles all throughout the kitchen so you can only have them situated around the sink or work tops were splashes mostly happen and do the rest of the room with paint or wallpaper. The process of fixing wall tiles is fairly simple and can be undertaken by anyone with basic DIY skills.
