These three-dimensional panels are a material which is in trend because of the texture and depth that they provide to the walls. Its main characteristic is that they are modular, which means they already come armed and ready to be placed or remove at any time. They are usually made of high-density rigid polyurethane foam which comes in a variety of designs and colors.

3. White and blue tiles

This type of coating is used more in kitchens or bathrooms, due to its characteristics of resistance to humidity and heat. Although new trends have led it to be used for other rooms, which provides a wide range of decorative possibilities. The market offers us more and more diversity regarding size, texture, and designs.

4. Very original MDF

They come in different sizes and colors depending on the materials or additives used. It looks smooth and presentable always.
