- Stained Glass Finish
- Pebbles Finish
- Flakes Finish
- Coral Finish
- Canfor Finish
- Tile Cladding
- Wood Panelling
- Sand Textured Finish
Stained Glass Finish
It involves lot of creative work. The glass is decorated with itching, frosting, glass pasting and finally colouring with suitable colours according to the theme. The stained glass panels are used on walls and ceilings.
This a very simple and attractive finish obtained by pasting small pebbles on the walls with cement mortar as an adhesive.
Pebbles finish is usually preferred for exterior facade. It is also commonly used to give nice flowing effect to the waterfalls that are created especially designed for Hotel Interiors or as a part of Exterior Landscaping.
It is a special material used to enhance the elevation treatment of the building. It is majorly used for the exterior facade. It has also been used for the interiors but to a very small extent. Application of flakes finish is avoided in the interiors because chipping off of flakes is a trouble.
The flakes are applied with a trovel on walls over a coat of adhesive.
Coral finish is similar to Plaster of Paris Finish and Gypsum Plaster Finish. Coral is the name of a type of plastering material. It gives a rough edgy finish.
Canfor finish is also known as Faux finish. This material is used for the interiors of residences. It adds a unique aesthetic appeal to the place. It comes in 6mm thickness and in different designs.
This finish is chosen when a false finish is to be given. It gives a stone wall or brick wall effect.
Different tiles, for example, granite, marble, glazed tiles or vitrified tiles are used for tile cladding. Tiles are available in a variety of colours and shapes. The selection of tiles depends on the place where it is to be applied i.e. interior facade or exterior facade.
It is a decorative treatment done with wooden panels on the walls in various designs. The material used can be plywood or wood covered with veneer or laminate.
Sand Textured Finish
Sand Textured finish is used to give fine texture to the wall. This wall finish is not very commonly used because of its grains coming out.
The range of wall finishes could be used to achieve desired effects. The aesthetic appearance of the interiors and the exteriors could be enhanced by the use of these finishes appropriately.
