Let’s Talk About Using Commercial Wallpaper in Your Store |  January 16, 2022 (0 comments)


West Bloomfield, MI--When staring a design project, clients often ask about what designs to add to their walls. I suggest that commercial wallpaper significantly enhances the store image. Commercial wallpaper is durable, water resistant, and non-porous, making it easy to clean and disinfect. In addition, commercial wallpaper is made differently than residential wallpaper.

Commercial wallpaper covering gives a jewelry store an inexpensive way to create an accent wall and a unique feeling to the area. Wall covering which is made of vinyl offers long-term benefits to the store. The important attributes include the following:

There is no hard-set rule that a commercial space chooses to use Type I or Type II commercial grade vinyl. Most commercial vinyl will be a faux linen, grass cloth or even textured design. This is fine for your store because these types of patterns tend to tie into the overall design of your store image.

When I designed Waterfall Jewelers in Waterford, MI, my client wanted a waiting area that was tied into being close to the metal vault and bar. The owners of Waterfall Jewelers chose the metalic, semi-shinny wall covering that matched the vault. See photo above. They also wanted a trendy wall covering as an accent wall in their waiting area to coordinate with the other materials. See the right side of the picture of this area below.
