Importance of texture and embossed materials in interior design
When you begin to decorate a wall, you should not only try to combine the colors well. Knowing how to use the textures plays a very important role in any space. Otherwise, lack of texture can make the walls seem flat and boring,
When we talk about textured and embossed wallpaper, we refer to the sensation that one has when touching the wallpaper. But there are also visual textures that can also generate sensations as if they were tactile.
Just as choosing light or dark colors can affect the design of a room, so do textures. For example, if the textures used are soft they will give a more delicate feeling. On the other hand, if the textures tend to be rough they will give you a more rustic feeling.
Therefore, walls decorated with the same colors but with different textures will feel and look different. But the textures should always be used with a certain balance. Because too many textures in a single room can be overwhelming, look too busy, and lose harmony.
Use Embossed Wallpapers to hide defects on the walls
One of the primary uses of textured or embossed wallpaper is to hide small defects in wall finishes. Apart from cracking plaster, several other plastering defects can occur.
Plaster, especially excessively thick layers, is inclined to de-bond from the wall when the outside skin shrinks at a different rate than the plaster in contact with the wall.
2. Lack of hardness due to insufficient cement, or the use of sand with excessive quantities of dust.
3. Rapid drying due to excessive loss of moisture in evaporation, when plastering in sun and wind.
You can use Embossed wallpaper or textured to hide these and other wall imperfections. The wallpaper is three-dimensional designed so for aesthetics as well as to hide imperfections. Take advantage of the slightly raised and textured effect so useful in hiding defects.
Installed these wallpaper over damaged walls and hide the wall defect such as cracks, scratches, wall roughness and small unevenness.

Benefits of Embossed Wallpapers Decor
The word embossed by itself refers to some kind of texture. Texture is an important element of interior decoration but is often overlooked. All the components of a complete design could there but the entire room will just feel a little flat when you lack texture.
For some reason, texture seems to always to be an afterthought when it comes to interiors and we’re here to change that. Texture is the thing that makes a room pop. Embossed wallpaper is great in bringing a perfectly fine design up to enviable levels.
The relief texture of embossed wallpaper is “the sensations caused by the external surface of wallpaper received through the sense of touch.” Basically, how the paper feel. Think about squishing soft carpet between your toes, or sinking down into leather couch cushions.
The “sense of touch” can be “perceived” sense of touch. Watching interior design TV programs or flipped through the pages of a magazine can tell you that you don’t need to have physical contact with a room to feel the power of texture.
If you’ve got imperfections in your walls such as from hanging pictures or there are cracks, embossed wallpaper is handy. It a good option for you. Because the thickness of the paper helps to cover discolorations and defects while adding elegance.
Painting over Embossed Wallpaper
The act of painting over most wallpaper is — without a doubt — not recommended. But that is not the case with most white embossed wallpaper. In many cases, I’d be right there with the majority, recommending that you remove the wallpaper for the sake of achieving the best possible painting finish. Embossed Pain-table Wallpaper is an excellent solution to many common design problems. It works well in big or small spaces and it can add subtle texture and pattern without overwhelming the eye or making the space seem cramped. Most important, it lets you choose the precise color you want. Allowing you design freedom rather than hoping you find wall coverings in the shade you need.
If you’ve been thinking about painting over existing wallpaper, well, here are some tips on how to:
- Confirm that the wallpaper is pain-table. Pain-table wallpaper is a thick wall covering with a raised patterns that can be covered with ordinary flat or gloss paint. And like regular wall coverings, it can be used walls, or on ceilings.
- If you want to paint on a newly installed wallpaper, allow it to first rest for 36 hours. You will need to allow time for the adhesive to fully dry. Because painting too soon can cause the wallpaper to bubble.
- It is good you know that there is no special paint made specifically for pain-table wallpapers. In other words, you don’t need a specialized paint.
