Walls. What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when we say that? Colours. The most basic aspect we concern ourselves with when it comes to painting walls is colours, and rightly so. But what about textured walls? What function do they play in interiors?Why and how should they be used? Worry not, we’ll help you find these answers.

Why go for textured walls? 


We’ll give you three reasons.

One, its a great way to add statement to your room and spruce up your living space. You can use textured walls to add depth and dimension to any room. Whether you’re looking to liven up an absolutely flat color scheme or you just want to add a dash of personality to your home — textures can help you do just that. 

Two, it can also serve practical functions– textured walls are a great way to mask signs of wear and tear, or things that need hiding such as drywall installations. 

Finally, textures on your walls also make them far more durable than smooth walls. This means they’re also more resistant to minor wear and tear.
