Surface treatments have become one of the most versatile applications in interior spaces

Creativity and innovation come together to make surface treatments one of the most versatile applications in interior spaces. One of the most integral components is surfaces, which not only provide an unlimited milieu for designers’ creative expression, but also make the space more functional and sustainable. Interior architecture is often defined by its materials and surfaces, and with a plethora of innovative products in the industry, designers, clients and the end-users have an infinite selection to choose from. New materials and technologies offer a glimpse into where innovation is taking us, both in terms of sustainability and simply as cool ideas. Each one represents a step forward in an existing idea but gives us an idea of where materials in interiors could go next. With surfaces, the tactile feel is perhaps even more important than how it looks. The right texture enhances the character of a space and lends more depth. A building’s interior surfaces have a bigger impact on users than the exterior facades.
