Using Faux Wall Panels in Home Design
Faux tile wall panels in the home are an affordable way to make your interior design ideas come to life. Some may feel that faux wall panels are out of style and don't fit a more modern aesthetic. However, if you choose the right colors and find clever ways to use the panels in the home, you can achieve sleek geometry in an updated and modern space.
Painted Wall Panels
Painting faux wall panels isn't that much different than painting any other wall surface you have. Start by cleaning the wall covering thoroughly with soap and water and then prepare the surface for painting. Wipe away any residue there may be on the panels and apply a coat of primer. A cleaned and primed surface will hold the paint much better.
Interior latex paint is a good paint option that is known to last longer and is more durable than other paints. It is also water-based, so you can clean the surfaces with just water, making for easy maintenance of your faux wall panels.
Paneling Over Wall Tile
If you are looking for faster and more affordable ways to get through your remodel, consider installing paneling over your current wall tile. Wall paneling is one material you can apply directly to the surface of the existing tile as long as the tile is in good condition.
Some panels will require only a strong adhesive for installation, while others may need you to use fasteners that mount into wall studs through the tile on the wall.
Leather Wall Panels Over Drywall
If you have a plain wall you want to dress up, then faux leather wall panels are a great design idea for any room in the home.

Faux wall panels, especially those designed to mimic natural stone or brick, should appear to be as realistic as possible. You want that same texture.

When choosing faux panels and decorative tiles, make sure to compare them to the surrounding décor, including the other finishes and furnishings in the room. The panels you choose should complement the rest of the room and have a good contrast in textures.
