Make dull walls dazzling with 3D wall panels
Phyllis, March 2016
Have you got a dull blank wall? Or are you looking for something to make the panel under the breakfast bar look a bit more interesting? Then 3D wall panels may be just the ticket to add a bit of zing to your home. 3D Wall Panels are decorative, textured wall panels with patterns carved into their surface. A feature wall made from 3D wall panels creates a huge impact, lending an architectural feel to the room at relatively little cost.
"3D wall panels can turn ordinary interiors into spectacular and dramatic spaces, instantly."Interior designers believe that rooms should have a central focal point of interest, from which all other elements flow. A feature wall made from 3D wall panels is an easy way to achieve this. 3D wall panels can turn ordinary interiors into spectacular and dramatic spaces, instantly. There’s no need to buy expensive artworks and furniture when the dramatic, sculpted wall panels are the main feature. There are numerous combinations of designs and finishes available, allowing you to create your own distinctive wall décor. Not only can these panels be used to create unique walls, they can be crafted into furniture such as doors on entertainment units and small cabinets, bar fronts, bed heads and even just hung to create an artwork. But the panels are not just restricted to interior design. They can also be made from waterproof polymer and used outside. Imagine a cabana or courtyard wall built from textured panels. You can buy panels from a business called, funnily enough, 3D Wall Panels. Not only are their panels Australian made, they can be delivered and delivered Australia-wide, raw or prefinished. The interior panels are made from 18mm thick E0 moisture resistant medium density fibreboard with a white melamine back and a raw face, ready for you to paint, or can be prefinished in vinyl or polyurethane. Their panels are made from Laminex Lamiwood E0 from their Greenfirst range; an environmentally preferable option for interior spaces. All fibre sources originate from plantation forests of Australia, with most coming from softwood plantation and sawmill residue. The use of the Laminex Green first certified products helps improve indoor air quality preserve our natural forests. The use of this material can also contribute to Green Star Credits from the Green Building Council of Australia. The raw panels can be screwed (and glued if preferred) directly to the walls, screw holes puttied, then sanded and painted. If they are ordered finished, the panels can be mounted with aluminium brackets or split battens. The outdoor panels are similarly impressive, being waterproof, mould-resistant, non-corrosive, alkaline and acid resistant. All this must cost a bomb, right? Wrong. Prices start from $220 for an interior panel and standard panel sizes are 2400 x 1200 or 2700 x 1200 Images courtesy of 3D Wall Panels For more information visit www.3dwallpanels.com.au
