Commercial wallcoverings have the ability to transform a space; to make it more engaging, more creative, and more beautiful. Commercial murals are typically painted on, whether using stencils or the artistic eye of a for-higher painter. But many interior designers are now recognizing the benefits of using printable graphics for commercial wall murals. Using a material like Asphalt Art, a foil-based medium which can be printed and cut to virtually any size, designers can create images or designs that have the appearance of being painted on without any actual paint.
Here are three reasons why interior designers are utilizing printable wall graphics more and more:
Painted walls can be creative, but printed wall graphics can utilize the full range of design options, limited only by the imagination of the designer. Murals can be printed to be exact replicas of classic paintings, detailed maps of cities, beautiful photographs, or even engaging optical illusions. With virtually no limits in terms of size, printed graphics can be used to cover massive walls or add intricate details to nooks and corners. They can be used for wayfinding, providing information, or to simply add to the beauty of a room.
Whereas you may feel stuck with a painted mural for decades to come, printed graphics can be changed out as often as you like. In certain settings, it may make sense to replace custom graphics with each passing season. Imagine doing that with a painted on mural! Once placed, printed graphics can stay in place for months or years, depending upon the setting, but they can also be easily peeled off and replaced without leaving a residue behind.
Printed wall graphics are only the beginning. Graphics can be placed on floors, ceilings, and even stairs. Using a variety of printable materials, you can create nonslip graphics that can be used indoors or outdoors, on concrete or asphalt, brick or hardwood, tile or even carpet. Needless to say, the usability and versatility of printable floor materials vastly exceeds that of paint.
