Alternative Wall Finishes for your Kitchen

Mix things up – experiment with these amazing alternatives to wall paint.

When you think of wall finishes, paint is generally the go-to option. It’s reasonably priced and easy to clean; a fairly simple process to arrange and there are a number of colours and palettes to choose from. But with the advancements in technology, other materials have been gaining popularity, especially in the kitchen. Apart from their water-resistant abilities, they also give the place texture and visual drama that paints just can’t offer. If you’re feeling adventurous, then check out these amazing alternatives to wall paint for your kitchen.

Concrete look

Living in a concrete home is highly sought after these days. The cool look makes a solid backdrop for ‘gram-worthy pics, plus there’s a certain amount of street cred that comes with living in an unfinished space.

The added texture far exceeds what any luxury paint color can achieve.

But faux concrete need not be limited to an accent wall. The finish can also be done in wet areas of the home, like bathroom walls or a kitchen backsplash or countertop.

Concret Art is ideal to customize design environments, giving a modern and contemporary finish to architecture.

Traditional Italian Plasters

Italian plasters give a depth and movement that is not possible in a painted finish. Although they are completely smooth to the touch, they have a certain texture about them that adds interest to your walls.

If you are looking for a soft sheen then Marmorino Classico is the ideal solution, which can be tinted to any colour to suit your decor. If you prefer a glossy surface then it’s better to use Stucco Veneziano, which has an acrylic base and is wipeable.

The extremely wide range of colours, ranging from delicate pastel to intense and enveloping shades, offers dynamic solutions for all spaces, with trendy or classic taste and the final result is always different, characterized by tones and effects that arise from the creativity of the decorator.

If you are using a plaster as a backsplash we recommend you use glass behind the hob.
