These days there are a number of wall covering options on the market. Of course, shiplap has reigned supreme for a long time thanks to Joanna Gaines’ enduring love for the rustic material. Wallpaper has seen a bit of a resurgence in popularity due to an influx of new textures like hemp, wood and even shells on the market. While those materials have their place, Fasade panels can easily and economically add beauty and value to any room.
Fasade panels are an alternative to costly wall coverings for three main reasons. They’re affordable, DIY-friendly and come in countless style and finish combinations.
Transforming your kitchen decor doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, with the tools you already own, you can renovate the average kitchen in a few hours for under $200. The cost for a completed stamped tin, glass, tile or custom metal installation will easily exceed $1,000 for the same size kitchen. Because these other materials require unique tools, grout, sealers and usually a qualified contractor, these options often end up costing 5-6 times more than a completed Fasade kitchen.
Fasade backsplash panels are easy to install so no contractor is needed. In just a few hours you can transform your kitchen using double-sided tape or a tube of adhesive. There’s no messy grout, mortar or expensive tile saw needed.
Finally, Fasade is available in 250 different backsplash styles and finish combinations including contemporary, traditional or even an industrial feel. Our numerous colors and finishes include metallics, matte colors and aged patinas.
Fasade is also available in 2×2 and 2×4 ceiling panels and 4×8 sheets for walls. This offers a wide range of decorating options that are easy, affordable and fit your style. To see how one creative customer accented her closet with Fasade panels, read this post from DIYalogue.

Have you seen wallpaper lately? Not the one on your smartphone, actual wall coverings for your walls.
According to Better Homes & Gardens, it’s a trend that’s back in a big way. But forget what you remember about your great grandmother’s dining room. It’s time to reconsider wallpaper and wall coverings. Today’s wallpaper styles are fantastically fresh, so you’re sure to find a pattern that appeals to your particular design aesthetic. There are even companies that allow you to create your own wallpaper design, send the file electronically and have it printed on different types of media for a custom, one-of-a-kind product.
Wallpaper prices vary greatly from $150 to $500 per square foot. You can purchase it at a big box home improvement store, but your choices may be limited. Interior decorators have access to hundreds of books filled with patterns and you can take them home and see what they look like in your home before committing.
Cutting, pasting, trimming and hanging wallpaper can be a challenge, especially if you’ve never done it before. Consider enlisting a friend or family member if you go this route, as an extra set of hands comes in, well, handy. Read this guide for some good tips on how to do the job right.
Most designers recommend not wallpapering whole rooms from floor to ceiling. Instead, consider these unique, eye-catching options:
- A bookcase backing
- An accent wall – particularly striking on an unconventionally-shaped wall in the room
- Highlight a piece of furniture like a coffee table or desk top
- A small space, such as an entryway or powder room
If you want to avoid some of the hassles of hanging wallpaper, consider wall panels. Fasade wall panels come in 4’x8’ sheets in traditional, modern and contemporary patterns. They install easily with construction-grade adhesive and are offered in a variety of colors, including a white you can paint to custom match your decor.
