Many of us have bright memories of photo wallpapers. A birch grove or a waterfall, a forest edge or a gazebo with weaving plants were present in almost every Russian apartment at the end of the last century. Photo wallpapers of the new generation can hardly be compared with those samples of finishing materials to create an accent surface. High quality printing, incredibly realistic image, called “with the effect of presence”, materials that do not attract dust, are able to withstand humidity and temperature changes, can be applied not only to smooth walls, but also textured surfaces, cabinet doors – all these are modern wallpaper for decoration of premises with the most diverse functional load. And now add a realistic 3D image to the high quality of the materials themselves, when the picture seems to come out of the canvas right into the room, and you will get an ideal option for creating an accent wall in the room, bringing originality even to the most ordinary interior, creating a special, thematic atmosphere.
Features of 3D wallpapers with 3D effect
Wallpaper with a 3D effect is a wide-format image for walls and other surfaces:
- the main feature is a three-dimensional image, which seems to move from the wall surface to the room;
- wallpapers with 3D effect are created about the technology of making photo wallpapers – first in a special computer program an image is formed, the necessary shades are selected, then the print is made;
- you can create an image on any subject – from a huge family portrait to an abstract picture.
Large-format printing with the effect of 3D can be produced on canvases from:
- vinyl sheet;
- non-woven base.
Selecting the material of the substrate for printing allows you to use wall-papers in different rooms. The most environmentally friendly version on paper basis can be used in bedrooms and children’s rooms, living rooms, libraries, offices and even canteens. In premises with a high risk of contamination, humidity and possible mechanical impact on the walls (hallways, corridors, kitchen and even a bathroom), you can use vinyl wallpaper on a non-woven base with a large-format image.
Photo wallpapers with a wide-format image can be glued not only to the walls, but also to the following planes:
- interior partitions of plasterboard;
- cabinet doors;
- glass and mirror surfaces as a fragmentary image.
Types of 3D wallpapers with photo printing
The market for modern finishing materials with large-format printing is incredibly wide. Among the whole assortment you can distinguish the following types of photo wallpapers:
- Single canvases are independent images or fragments of them that can be pasted onto walls, interior partitions, doors, part of the surface or act in a frame (moldings, frames);
- Panoramic paintings differ in scale – they can extend not to one wall to create a full-scale effect of presence, a special thematic atmosphere;
- wallpapers with a fluorescent 3D effect – in the dark, such canvases can shine due to the presence of special elements in the composition of the paint layer;
- LED wallpaper is usually supplied in a complex with a lighting system (made to order and has a high cost).
Variants of use in the interior for decoration and decoration
Cloths with three-dimensional images can be used in rooms of any purpose: living rooms, bedrooms, children’s rooms, dining rooms and kitchens, cabinets and libraries, hallways, corridors and other utilitarian spaces. Cloths with large-format printing can be glued both to the whole wall (or to two adjacent surfaces) and to form a part of the vertical plane. You can draw a ceiling (most often an image of a cloudy or starry sky) in the bedroom or the children’s room.
Wallpaper with a 3D effect can be used to visually increase the space of small rooms. For example, a retreating path, a ladder or a road will visually erase the boundaries of the room, sending our gaze into the distance. Even for very small rooms (corridors, bathrooms, space near the stairs), this visual effect gives an excellent result – the rooms seem to have a continuation in the painted world.
Photo walls in themselves have eye-catching effect, it makes no sense to use very bright colors, variegated combinations to create an accent in the interior. Even a black and white image becomes the focal point of the room, if it extends over the entire wall and, the more so, two adjacent surfaces.
In the bedroom you need to create a relaxing atmosphere for a good rest. The ideal variant of the image of photo wallpapers in this case is a natural landscape, photos of plants, flowers. Most often with wallpaper with a 3D effect, a wall is created behind the head of the bed, but much depends on the shape and size of the room, the location of window and door openings.
In the living room you can use both natural and urban landscapes, abstract images, your own photos, drawings of animals, insects and any objects in macro photography. Everything depends on the concept of design of the common room, the chosen color palette, the finishing of the adjacent surfaces – floors, ceiling and other walls.
The design of the accent wall in the office depends on what effect you would like to achieve from the image. If you need to keep yourself toned for work at home, then you need a dynamic drawing. If for inspiration of creative activity you need a relaxing atmosphere, then landscapes, plants, flowers will be an ideal option.
In the hallways, corridors, spaces near the stairs, as a rule, there is a shortage of useful area, so it makes sense to use images that help visually increase the volume of the room, or choose your abstract drawings. But it all depends on the style of interior design and the place to create an accent surface. Some types of wallpaper with a 3D effect are perfectly combined with wall panels, moldings, wood inserts.
In kitchen and dining rooms specialists do not recommend using thematic images with objects of everyday use, ready meals or their components – fruits, vegetables and other products. A large photo of food will constantly provoke an influx of appetite, it is better to stop the choice on neutral natural images – landscapes, plants, flowers, as well as abstract drawings.
