Oiling on a fresh coat of paint may be a viable way of decorating your home’s walls, but why do things the boring way when there are more interesting options available?

Wall coverings, such as wallpaper and brick/stone veneers, don’t just provide ways to exercise your creative capabilities with their myriad of designs – they make it easy too.

Here, we’ve rounded up some of the most versatile (read: chic and fuss-free) wall coverings from Wallhub that’ll surely add an element of style and surprise to your personal quarters.


Wallpaper

1. Marble Marvel

Why you should get it:

Associated with class and sophistication, marble has consistently shown up as a trending design element in homes around the world in the form of flooring, accent walls, and even as home accessories.

However, its beauty comes at a price. In Singapore, just one square foot of this elegant natural stone can cost upwards of S$10, which certainly adds up if you are doing up an entire wall or two.

Thankfully, you don’t need deep pockets to get in on this trend. Wallpapers are one way that you can bring the much-vaunted ‘veiny’ marble effect home, but at a more affordable cost.

Perfect for: The modern-day fashionista on a budget.

2. Return to Nature

Interior Designer: Aiden-T

Why you should get it:

Feeling stressed? There’s probably something in nature that’ll put you at ease, for instance, the lingering smell of rain in the air or the sheer greenery of a rolling field. Plus, enjoying nature is easy: all you have to do is step outdoors and take it all in.

Even for those who (are unfortunate enough to) live 24/7 in a concrete jungle, Mother Nature is here to help. Well… sort of.

They may not be the real thing, but these nature-inspired wallpapers are certainly capable of bringing botanical charm indoors with their dense foliage-like prints and floral motifs, making them the perfect companions for your plant babies.

Perfect for: Nature-lovers who want to be in their element indoors.

3. Holiday at Home

Why you should get it:

Whether you’re a student or a career person, there’ll be times where you simply need to get creative. And one of the best ways to discover fresh inspiration is to simply take a break and go on vacation.

In the event that things don’t go as planned (think tight budgets and packed schedules), or if you simply wish to be reminded of a memorable trip, there’s also the option of getting a themed wallpaper featuring iconic landmarks, such as Mount Fuji or the Golden Gate Bridge.

Whatever your chosen design, these photo-realistic wall covers are guaranteed to ‘bring you on holiday’, every day of the week.

Perfect for: The busy executive whose getaway spot is home.

4. Childlike Whimsy

Why you should get it:

When it comes to decorating children’s rooms, having the right colours and patterns matters; and what better decorative covering is there for the job than wallpaper?

Aside from playful details – like oversized caricatures and wildlife-inspired patterns – Wallhub’s wallpapers are also available in an array of soft, calming hues ranging from pastel pink to baby blue, making them one of, if not the best sheathes for the walls in your little one’s bedroom.

Perfect for: Children, or the young at heart.

5. Pretty in Pattern

Why you should get it:

From stunning cityscapes to cutesy animal prints, it’s all-too clear that there’s a wide selection of wallpaper designs available these days. However, there’s nothing wrong with sticking to tried-and-tested options either.

If you are feeling less adventurous, the classics will serve you just as well.

Vertical stripes, geometrics, and trellis patterns may be (a lot) less intense and eye-catching than an opulent, shimmering layer of gold, but they are certainly capable of getting the job done by creating a minimal, yet classy shell for your walls.

Perfect for: Art-and-craft lovers who want more colour in their lives.


Veneers & Panels

1. Faux Brick

Why you should get it:

Other than wallpaper, the quickest way to bring the raw, industrial look of exposed brick into your home is to use veneers. These uncanny lookalikes from KASTONE® are moulded from premium materials, giving them a texture and appearance that is comparable to the actual thing.

Realism aside, another big advantage of these faux panels is their low weight – a useful characteristic that allows them to be mounted on home surfaces, such as dividing and/or accent walls, that are otherwise incapable of handling the load of actual brick.

Perfect for: Homeowners who want an authentic brick wall, minus the hassle.

2. Artificial Stone

Why you should get it:

As with any porous surface, stone walls can prove to be more of a headache than a stylish home feature if they aren’t properly maintained. Leaving them unsealed (i.e. without a protective coating) will result in stains, cracks, or even a catastrophic collapse due to moisture penetration.

However, there’s no need to worry if you’re using KASTONE® stone veneers. Like their faux brick cousins, these stone panels are highly durable because of their artificial nature, making them suitable for use in both inside and outside.

Perfect for: Garden owners who wish to have ‘natural rocks’ that are useable both indoors and outdoors.

3. Concrete Panels

Why you should get it:

There’s a reason why concrete is the go-to material when it comes to imbuing indoor spaces with raw charm.

Due to its utilitarian-chic greys that command attention, this flexible material manages to be both subtle and striking at the same time, making it a hot favourite among interior designers and style-savvy homeowners alike.

Offering further improvements over regular concrete is the KASTPANEL Collection from KASTONE®, which are lighter and easier to install than their actual cousins.

With an ultra-slim thickness of 11mm, KASTPANELs offer a quick and easy way to introduce the cosiness of concrete into your home. What’s more, they are easy to maintain too. Just dust or wipe their surfaces with a dry cloth and you are good to go!

Perfect for: Fans of industrial-style interiors who love the authentic feel and appearance of pre-cast concrete in their own homes.
