How to: choose the right material

If you are embarking on a new project or simply redecorating a room in your home, you will need to consider the materials that you’ll be using. Individual materials bring with them different characteristics and properties, meaning some are better suited to projects than others. It shouldn’t simply be a case of choosing the material that looks the best, but rather one that will fulfil the necessary requirements. And here’s some top tips for doing exactly that:

Consider the Project’s Requirements

Every project is going to have different requirements and that’s what keeps things interesting. Ask yourself what those requirements are in order to find the right material. Consider your personal style and taste as well as the material’s functionality.

Consider the Material’s Characteristics

Not all materials are created equal, so it’s important to consider characteristics. For example, concrete is strong and durable, MDF panelling is thinner but easier to install and gypsum creates a seamless surface which feels natural to the touch. To find out more research a little about the materials or speak to a member of the 3D Art Factory team.

Consider How Quickly Installation Needs to Be

Not all products are quick to install and, in fact, some require professional assistance. So do bear this in mind when choosing material. Both geometric tile and wood is relatively easy to install and most decorators will do the job without problem. If you are looking for a product which is easy to install then polyurethane geometric tiles will o th trick. Decorative concrete elements and gypsum wavy panels, on the other hand, will involve professional help.

Consider the Product’s Location

Not all products will be used internally. Think carefully about the material for an external surface – either concrete or a concrete-based material will work best.
