Decorating your home with stone walls can be a neat and practical addition to your house or apartment. Apart from the walls, a perfect part for such a decorative feature would be a bar that shares the kitchen and dining room. Stone bars can look modern and rustic at the same time. It depends on the workers who handle this. But today the situation is not too promising when it comes to economics and maybe it is not the right time for such expensive architectural solutions. Instead, you should go to wall cladding.
What is wall coverings?
If you decide to cover your walls or other parts of your home, that means just adding the outer layer of stone, metal wood, wood or any other cladding material. Instead of making the entire wall or pole of stone or other material, you just do it with the surface. The final effect will not differ too much. The point is that under the cladding you also ensure the correct insulation, if the decorative cladding is applied to the exterior walls of your home.
Is it affordable?
The answer to this question is logical. Let's say you want to build a whole wall of stone. The cost of making the entire wall of stone includes the material itself, the transport and the structural part. All of these factors contribute to the total cost of such a wall.
On the other hand, cladding requires a smaller amount of material and you only have the cost of placing the material on the surface of a concrete wall. The aesthetic result is very similar and you still have enough money in your pocket to apply cladding to other parts of the house. Different types of wall cladding and cladding are available on the market and you may want to experiment with them and lay different walls with different types of cladding.
Is it environmentally friendly?
As we have already said, cladding saves material, which means another advantage is the fact that it is an environmentally friendly design solution. First of all, you do not have to pay for a whole truck for the material transport, but you can do it in a van or a larger car. Second, you will save the energy that would be used to make all the material you need. Due to the variety of different types of cladding material, you can also look for timber, which can also be entirely wood, which increases the level of deforestation.
Cladding is a perfect way to decorate certain parts of your home with beautiful visual solutions, but at the same time save a lot of money and also behave in accordance with the rules of Green hembyggnad. Because of all this, cladding is one of the most responsive wall construction techniques today and should be used as much as possible.
