Coatings and finishes for kitchen walls
wall covering for the kitchen
When renovating a kitchen, we have to decide what furniture we want to put in or how to arrange it. Choosing the kitchen wall covering will also play a vital role in the functionality and aesthetics of the new room. Until recently, tiles seemed practically the only option, but today other elements such as wall panelling, wallpaper or simply painting on the wall are gaining ground.
In the project in the image above we can see that the wall panel is combined with paint, but also with two exposed stone walls, a very charming proposal for rustic homes.
In addition to painting the walls, numerous coatings are gaining popularity. This is the case with wall panels, but also with micro cement or even wood cladding. For example, we can see how the Walnut laminate wall panel combines with the back of the island.
The Countertop will also be suitable for the adjoining wall!
It is currently a trend to use wall panels in the work area made of the same material and finish as the worktop. In this way, a harmonic and elegant result is achieved, without neglecting the practical. And it is that any material designed for the countertop will also be suitable for the adjoining wall! At the end of the day, what we are looking for is the same: a surface that is easy to clean, resistant to humidity, stains and heat, and requires little maintenance.
Another very current trend is to include wallpaper in the kitchen, yes, only on some walls (usually those that are near the dining table, thus seeking to create a differentiated, more welcoming environment). Until recently, kitchen walls were almost always tiled, but now that the kitchen is taking on more of a living room shape, especially in open spaces, that’s a less attractive option for many families. On the contrary, wallpaper gains popularity as it is elegant, delicate and warmer.
Laminated Wall Panels
Today there are almost as many types of wall panels as countertops: quartz, resin, porcelain, and natural stone such as granite or marble… without forgetting laminated wall panels, which have an infinite number of finishes, including wood-look ones. , which allows bringing warmth and comfort to this area of the kitchen, without detracting from comfort.
The wall panel can be completed with a very practical Led profile to illuminate the work area, which also supports electrical outlets and various accessories. Thus, the wall panel is completely clean and continuous, which makes it even more aesthetically attractive.
