Wall panelling is a recurring and popular wall-application in modern architecture. The panels can be installed over other building materials in a building’s frame, when those materials are not as strong and non-porous.
Wall panelling on the inside and outside
Wall panelling can either be done on the interior or the exterior of a building or house. Originally, wall panelling was used to make stone rooms more comfortable to live in. The panels were placed to create insulation between the stone wall and the room itself. Interior wall panelling is still used for this reason, but it serves mainly as decoration.
These days, exterior wall panelling has become quite popular and is commonly adopted in the construction of new, modern buildings. There are several reasons why wall panels are being used more and more. The use of wall panels in construction can ensure a cutback in building costs: when panels are placed ‘on top’ of a building’s frame, other efforts such as painting or applying finishes are no longer necessary. The result is an even and consistent look. Sometimes wall panelling can even replace a complete wall.
Wall Panelling Aesthetic Appeal
Wall panelling is often applied to increase the appeal of a building. There are more and more options available to include wall panelling into building design and construction, popularity is still rising. Wall panels also have an aesthetic function, alongside all practical uses. Wall panels can be constructed in new modern building designs or they can be used to improve an existing building. In both cases, wall panelling can increase the aesthetic appeal of the building. This can be profitable when leasing or renting, or perhaps to create a professional and businesslike image for potential clients.
Often a vertical rectangle-shaped pattern is used to install the wall panels, though some designs benefit from a horizontal layout of the panels. Also, AFS International offers corrugated or textured patterns on request.
