Considerations for Wall Coverings

Posted by GreenSource Solutions on July 26, 2016

Investing in commercial wall coverings around your office or building might be a reasonable decision to make, but the only way to determine what kind of wall coverings you should use is to think about the space you are considering their installation. GreenSource knows that putting money back into your workspace should offer you a quality return, and we have helped our customers decide on their wall covering material by asking some of these questions.

What industry are you in?  Believe it or not, there are many flooring and wall covering manufacturers that create specific products with certain industries in mind. Because of this, our experts might be able to help you narrow in on a covering that is better suited for you!

Is it a high or low traffic area? Though there are plenty of wall coverings to choose from, you might deter from using specific materials depending on the traffic. For example, paper and natural materials are often used in low traffic spaces while vinyl or synthetic options are more suited for higher traffic areas.

What is the purpose of the wall covering? Though many might only think wall coverings would be installed for aesthetic purposes, there are many others who use wall coverings as a beautiful way to accomplish other forms of functionality, such as soundproofing or extra insulation. Many cork coverings can soften echoing in a larger space, and have been used in areas like auditoriums at universities around the country!
