In this guide, we share with you our best luxury walling collection to give you design inspirations to decorate your home.
Without further ado, let’s dive in right away.
Premium Wall Paints
This is the most common and popular way to decorate walls in India. Paints are budget-friendly and easy to maintain. Here are a few tips to keep in mind while choosing luxury wall paints for your home:
- Paints have varying finishes like smooth, matte, enamel, textured, flat enamel, flat matte, eggshell enamel, satin enamel and more. You can choose the finish based on your design preferences.
- It’s always a good idea to purchase the furniture and fix the interiors of the room before deciding the wall paint colour. This way, the colour ties up with the rest of the room perfectly.
- Always test it out before painting. Get a few small tester cans and paint different colours on your wall to see how it feels during different times of the day, when light hits it at different angles.
- Follow the three-colour palette rule. You can go for 6 : 3 : 2 ratios for light, medium and dark colours to make the entire space tied together.
Wallpapers are another popular design choice for decorating walls. They are budget-friendly and super quick to install. The best part – if you are bored of a design, you can rip up the paper quickly and put in another design. Today, the Indian market has numerous wall paper options. From small wall stickers to premium customised wallpapers, you can choose the right one that fits your budget and design requirements.
Decorative wall plasters are a timeless and centuries-old wall decorating trend. In this decoration, a durable plaster is used to sculpt patterns and other decorative elements directly on a wall. It is most commonly used on ceilings. Here are some of the popular wall decorative plaster styles:
This provides a uniform look on your walls. The size of the plaster ranges from 0.6 to 3 mm and works well for interior walls. Besides adding to the decorative beauty of the wall, structural plaster also gives the illusion of added structural elements on a wall.
This plaster design lends a textural effect to your walls. Some of the popular choices include:
- Ribbed relief plaster
- Table relief plaster
- Insing relief plaster
- Inverted flute relief plaster
- Rope relief plaster
- Corrugated relief plaster
- Shuttered plank relief plaster
- Moon relief plaster
This plaster work resembles the effect of tiny marbles on your walls. It is a more budget-friendly option compared to structured and textured plasters.
Wall tiles are another way to decorate your walls. Generally, tiles are used on the walls of kitchens and bathrooms to prevent spills and stains from sticking onto the walls. Tiles are easier to clean compared to painted walls, making them an excellent choice for messy areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Additionally, tiles also inhibit the growth of mould and bacteria, making them a practical yet stylish choice for your walls.
When it comes to choosing wall tiles, you have multiple options – natural stone tiles, vinyl tiles, ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles, glass tiles, vitrified tiles, mosaic tiles and more. Besides kitchens and bathrooms, wall tiles are also used in kids' rooms.
For decades, wall panels have been used to decorate walls. They were immensely popular in the 60s and 70s, and fell out of trend in the 80s. Today, wall panels are making a huge comeback in a more modern and trendier avatar. Wall panels are sheets of plywood that you attach to completed walls to give it a trendy and structural effect.
If you are looking for a compact and easy wall decoration choice, then you can go for stone wall decorations. Decorate your walls in beautiful patterns using small natural stones and pebbles. Stone wall art adds a unique decorative element to the room and makes your space stand out. They work best for commercial zones like malls, hotels and restaurants.
