3-D Textured Wall Panels Create Drama

To make a dramatic, artistic statement in an entry, hallway or room, consider sculpted 3-D wall panels from These panels come in 4'x8' sheets of SDF (sustainable design fiberboard) with a formaldehyde free adhesive system. They can be shipped without any finish (raw), stained a variety of wood stain colors, primed or painted.

These panels could be used in place of artwork and would be appropriate in modern, contemporary, transitional and eclectic designed spaces. A 4'x8' sheet of this wavy material painted white, cream or a pale watery color would add a sense of motion and flow in a long hallway. Painted a bright spicy curry color, hot pink or a metallic gunmetal, they would certainly make a bold statement.
Used in a dining room, an entire feature wall clad in this product and painted a pale color or dark metallic, this product would be extremely dramatic when lit by ceiling mounted halogen track or MR-16 recessed lighting. The dramatic play of light against the sensuous 3-D patterns would be very interesting and add a sense of excitement in a space that often lacks excitement.

Also, consider a family room in a finished basement on a windowless wall. Finished in a wood stain, these panels would be great to clad an entire wall. The wood color and texture would make the room feel much warmer and cozier and would add interest to a room that may otherwise feel a bit cold and dark.

To get an idea of cost, I got a quote from the national sales manage for a 4'x8'x3/4" sheet (primed only) for $448.00 or cut to size, sanded and painted $22/square foot or $704.00 per sheet. Visit the innovative accents website to learn more about the products and see samples of the patterns they make. Think outside the box and let your imagination run and play!
