Although square and rectangular wall panels have been the norm, new shape and texture trends are emerging.
Mixed facades are becoming more popular than ever. Wall panels are increasingly being used on accent walls that complement masonry, fiber cement, and terracotta. Multiple cladding creates unique facades that draw attention.
Although square and rectangular wall panels have been the norm, new shape and texture trends are emerging. Advances in manufacturing techniques allow new shape variations that are pushing the envelope and creating new design options for building exteriors. These shapes and textures can alter shadow lines, creating a dramatic effect that changes with the sun.
The use of color complements dramatic effects and facade textures. With Valspar, the color possibilities of wall panels is nearly endless. Silver, gray, white, and dark earth tones are still popular staples, with accent colors, effects, and textures used to add variety. Reds, yellows, and blues can make a statement and add warmth to a project.
Designers have been using multiple tones of the same color on some projects, creating a mosaic effect. Some organizations are branding their facilities with the artistic use of logos on the project exterior. Wall panels are also being used to mimic wood, often at a lower price and with a shorter lead time.
Using durable coatings is essential to keeping wall panels prestine. Valspar PVDF coatings provide long-lasting resistance to weathering, chalking, and marring.
