One detail that makes the environment more attractive is to put the plaster on top of the wall or do a job with marquetry.

2. Italian stone

It is a very popular stone with a rough texture. However, it still looks exquisite.

3. Marble

From the ancient Greeks and Romans til today,  marble remains a highly refined and desired material. Also, there are many colors, types, and combinations available.

4. Brick

Brick, itself, is not a layer, it is a building material. But there are thin pieces that can be used as decorative elements and a coating.

5. A touch of texture

Here is an acrylic mold that is placed on a mixture of cement which gives a clay-like design to the house.

6. Melamine

Here we see seductive, elegant and modern textured finish. Its flexibility allows it to adapt to any shape and size.

7. Decorative stone

Another type of stone is the decorative one. It can be in the form of thin blocks or tiles. Its texture is rustic and takes up less space than natural stone.

8. Wood

The wood is beautiful, flexible and warm. At the same time, it is elegant and casual. It allows you to give a rustic or very sophisticated touch.

9. More wood but colorful

Another way of presenting the wood is by painting the material. It changes the appearance, but not the feeling of warmth and harmony.

Mosaic tiles are ideal for mimicking glass. They are usually used for wet areas such as the bathroom or kitchen. Also, they are easy to clean and can provide the room with a lot of brightness.

11. Mirrors

We are accustomed to seeing the mirrors that cover the interior walls of the houses, especially in the bedrooms or bathrooms. However, not on the outer walls. Do not install mirrors on walls that are facing southwest and west to avoid the sun's rays.

12. Ceramic parts

These ceramic pieces with three-dimensional designs can give a unique touch. They are fascinating because the simple movement of natural light creates different shapes throughout the day due to the shadow.

13. Thousand colors

The straightforward pieces are usually the most interesting when combined with accessories, furniture, and different colors. A ceramic or porcelain wall can become a compelling mural if you choose a colorful and inviting design.

14. Natural stone

Some pieces are smaller and made for environments like the bathroom and kitchen. Here you can play with different models on the same wall.

15. Rustic stone

As we can see, this material is thick heavy and irregular. Because of its appearance, it should occupy small spaces.

16. All white

This is a painting made of pure lime and water. This blend is economical and environmentally friendly.

17. Apparent concrete

Finally, concrete is also a natural option for coating the walls. It leaves any home more interesting.
