Architectural Film: The Smart Solution for Sustainable Interior Design
The main purpose of many commercial businesses is to create a positive, unique and impactful experience for their clients. This is especially true for the business in the hospitality and retail sectors.
For all the teams in the interior decorating business, such as interior designers, architects, builders, and property managers, it is important to work hand in hand to create a modernized and pleasant environment that is also visually appealing.
Many businesses (especially in hospitality and retail) cannot shut down completely during renovations at the risk of losing major revenue. Traditional renovations are costly in that it can shut down the business temporarily, and the money spent on the actual renovations.
The architectural film is something that solves that problem – it helps spruce up any interior space without having the business close its doors to their clients. Its appearance and texture give countless opportunities for creating a space that really stands out.
Some other reasons to consider architectural films are:
The Turn around Time is Faster Traditional Renovations
No matter the scale of the renovation project, using architectural film will help cut down the traditional renovation time in half while achieving the same stunning visual appeal.
Not only is it faster, but it is also less disruptive. The architectural firm can be applied quickly and easily without having your day-to-day operations interrupted – unlike the typical noise, odour and chaos that comes with traditional renovations.
The cost is a fraction of the cost of Traditional Renovations – and it is Sustainable
Not only does using architectural film save money, but it also promotes a more sustainable and circular economy. This is done by taking already existing interior finishes and restoring them to extend their life cycle.
This is more sustainable than say, throwing out old furniture and replacing them entirely.
The key advantages of doing architectural film over traditional renovations are:
- Quick turnaround time
- Easy to clean and maintain
- Saves on costs
- Limitless designs to choose from
Application has Never been Easier
A big struggle when it comes to restoring or remodeling interior finishes is the shape and size of that finish. The more complex the surface is, the harder it is to work with using traditional materials.
This is not the case with architectural film – the flexibility and durability of the film allow for so many ways and places that it can be applied.
There are multiple application areas for an architectural film that comes in all shapes, sizes, and measurements. Some examples are doors and walls, kitchen cabinets and office tables, and more.
This makes the ratio of price to performance incontestable for an architectural film when compared to traditional renovations.
