Wallcovering throughout the Office
Wallcovering is generally used for two reasons. First, its durability
is greater than paint. This reduces maintenance costs. Second, available
textures and patterns create visual impact beyond what paint normally provides.
Areas which are prone to harder daily use such as public corridors, kitchens,
dining rooms and, sometimes, washrooms are prime candidates for wallcovering.
The cost of continual paint touch up often justifies the initital cost of
the wallcovering. Wallcoverings are also used in private offices and conference
rooms as an "upgraded" finish.
