Architectural Film: New Interior Finishing Material
Have you ever walked into a building and found that the way it is decorated takes your breath away? The first thing anyone sees when walking into any building is the layout and design. Typically, the person’s first impression of that building is the ultimate judging point on whether they are comfortable being in it or not.
That is the impact of interior design and how the layout and finishes used can have a positive or negative effect on the people working, living or visiting in the building. The first impression is a lasting one, and you want to make it count.
Before delving more into this blog post, let us talk about what interior finishing means. Interior finish is considered to be the exposed interior surfaces of a building – such as plaster, wood, wallpaper, paint etc. Here are several aspects to interior finishing:
- Interior wall and ceiling finish
- Interior floor finish
- Decorative materials and trim
However, in this article, we will be focusing more on interior wall and ceiling finishes rather than floor finishes.
Common Types of Interior Finishes
Interior finishes are used to describe interior space elements that are fixed into place – and are considered non-structural elements that have a decorative and/or functional purpose. Some of the common types of interior finishing geared towards walls and ceilings are:
- Interior doors (commercial doors and windows etc.)
- Lighting (accent lights, LED, energy efficient etc.)
- Wall treatments (plaster, wood, wallpaper, vinyl, accent features etc.)
- Ceiling treatments
- Posts and columns
- Plumbing fixtures
You can choose the right type of interior finish by analyzing the use of your building and how the people in that building work in the space provided to them. The goal of interior finishing is to maximize the space in both aesthetic appeal and functionality.
