What are 3D Decorative Wall Panels?

3D wall panels provide a room with a distinct aesthetic of repetitive shapes. The panels are manufactured in a wide range of textured patterns, from waves and ripples to fractile cubes and abstract geometric objects. When illumination is added, 3D decorative wall panels take on their full dimensionality, through shadow casting.

These panels can be used in sequence across a long stretch of wall space, creating a continuous geometric scape. If you don't want to cover your entire wall with 3D panels, you can showcase individual areas of focus, such as a fireplace, entertainment center, or art display.

3D wall panels are typically made from bamboo and a composite material. For the most part, 3D decorative wall panels have three layers: the basis, the relief layer, and the firming-decorative layer.

The basis layer is made of reinforced plaster, aluminum, or other lightweight and strong material. It takes any weight and transfers it through the fasteners to the wall. The relief layer is made from aluminum, wood, or plastic. It holds the weight of the decorative layer and provides a clean surface on which the third layer adheres. The top layer is the firming-decorative layer. It is the only layer that is seen and provides additional rigidity, durability. The PVC film, or another veneer, is shaped to the aesthetic design and provides the panel its 3D quality.

The panels multi-layer design ensures their strength and quality over years of use. They are lightweight and easy to install and can be made in a wide variety of colors and shapes to match the existing or desired decor of any room.

The installation process for your wall panels depends on which type of 3D wall panels you are using. The three basic types of 3D wall panels are typeset, tile pattern, and sheet.


Typeset Rack Wall Panel

Typeset rack wall panels are comprised of long panels attached to a rack structure with screws or staples. The rack and panels are ordered for a definite size and shape. Installation is easy and can be completed by one or two people. Panels line up snug with each other in a groove system and are attached to the rack on the ends.


Tile Pattern Wall Panel

Tile pattern wall panels are the most common type of 3D panels. They are lightweight, inexpensive, and versatile. Tile panels can be taken off the wall and replaced easily. They can be used to create an infinite number of tile patterns, allowing for the greatest artistic freedom in your design. Tiles can be interchanged, flipped around, and swapped with other patterns in order to create a unique wall-scape. This type of paneling is attached to wall bracings in a grove system. Wall bracings are attached to the wall with adhesive or capping so that wall tiles can be moved freely.


Sheet Wall Panel

Sheet wall panels offer a uniform aesthetic to any room. They can be manufactured from metal, wood, plastic, PVC, particle board, or other materials. Some sheet panels display a 3D abstract geometric pattern, while others look like a stone or brick facade. The top layer of foam composite can display any three-dimensional design. Unlike tile panels, sheet panels are manufactured to the full size of a wall. The sheet panel attaches to your wall using adhesive, and the edges of the panel are hidden under the walls molding.



Why Use 3D Wall Panels?

Wall panels are easier to install than wallpaper, drywall, and, or painting a room. If you want to upgrade the decor of your room, 3D wall panels are the best way to do so. Paint and wallpaper don't offer you any dimensionality, whereas 3D decorative wall panels, literally, pop out at you.

If a panel is damaged, simply replace it. No need to get out the spackle and paint. Installation of drywall requires dust masks and heavy equipment. Leave those in the toolbox. Wall panels are easily installed by hand.

Not only do they look great, but 3D wall panels are great for sound dampening and thermal insulation. They are virtually maintenance free and are cleaned easily with a damp cloth. All in all, they are an attractive, unique, stress-free solution to give your space atmosphere.
