How to mask irregularities on the wall

Recommendation points



Perfectly flat walls are the exception rather than the rule. Irregularities are common, even a visually smooth wall can actually be “overwhelmed”. Our site of tips decided to figure out what kind of finishing materials can be used to mask irregularities on the walls, to hide the obvious curvature.

Uneven walls

The first thing that comes to mind when looking at an uneven wall is plaster! Yes, if the curvature reaches and exceeds 10 centimeters, then nothing but plasterboard wall cladding and the use of a ton of plaster can fix the situation. This will significantly increase the cost of repairs. In addition, as the portal has already written, too thick a layer of plaster is a big mistake. This will significantly increase the risk of cracks and other problems..

Therefore, experienced designers often advise home and apartment owners to simply mask small wall irregularities with finishing materials. And save on plaster.

Non-woven wallpaper gluing

Method one – non-woven wallpaper

It is non-woven, because they can be stretched, tightened, that is, corrected on the wall. Yes, the seams can overlap, disperse … Therefore, the process of pasting non-woven wallpaper will be more complicated. But you can cope with it! For example, some of the wallpaper falling on top of each other can be carefully cut.

It’s better not to even try to use paper-based wallpaper on uneven walls! They will only emphasize the curvature, but it will not work to tighten them, achieving an even seam..

Important! On curved walls, you need to use wallpaper with a chaotic pattern, which will not need to be selected to match at the joints. The color can be any, but the picture, ideally, is chaotic dots and upward lines..

Liquid wallpaper in the interior of the apartment

Method two – liquid silk wallpaper

We have devoted a detailed article to this material. The process of applying with a spatula is simple, liquid wallpaper perfectly hides the flaws of the walls and seams. Great choice for curved walls.

Cork wall decoration

Method three – cork sheets

Cork is not used as often as a wall decoration material as wallpaper. Although this material has a lot of advantages! Including the ability to hide minor wall irregularities. Minus in the rather high price of cork sheets, it may turn out that it is cheaper to buy plaster and level the walls.

Important! Designers advise using cork sheets on only one wall in a room! You cannot correct the curvature of all walls with this material – uneven joints will become noticeable.

Facade plaster

Method four – facade plaster

It is the front! We cross out all variants of even, smooth, velvety and silky plaster, because they require perfectly flat walls. But facade plaster with a coarser structure, large grains will hide the curvature.

Applying marble plaster

Method five – decorative plaster with large grains

Facade plaster can be replaced with decorative, but only with coarse grains. For example, marble chips, pieces of mica and vermiculite. The downside is that it is quite difficult to apply such plasters, there will be expenses for the wages of the master. Therefore, saving on leveling the walls is questionable..

Method six – leave concrete

Yes, if this option suits your chosen style of interior design, if you like a loft, then the uneven walls can be left as is. Simply use glaze impregnations to protect the concrete and make it more pleasant to touch. The most economical option, the only minus is that a concrete wall will not be appropriate in every interior. And not all owners like this lack of decoration.

Decorative painting of walls

Method seven – paint

Why not. Usually they paint prepared, ideally smooth walls, but on curves you can try this type of finishing. Designers advise choosing a paint that is similar in structure to decorative plaster. Apply it with a spatula, this paint is slightly denser, therefore it helps to hide surface imperfections.

Laminate on the wall

Method eight – wood

All kinds of wooden dies, slats, good old lining will perfectly hide the unevenness of the wall. In addition, you can use such a fashion trend as transferring flooring – parquet and laminate – to the wall..

Wall drapery with fabric

Method nine – sheathe, cover the walls with fabric

Not with fabric-based wallpaper, but with a fabric that is attached to the wall with moldings. Again, not an option for every interior style, and it will be difficult to take care of the fabric on the walls – dust will collect in any case. But you will hide the irregularities for sure.

Eco wall - vertical garden in the apartment

Method ten – phytowall

Yes, phytomodules will perfectly cover all irregularities. And the room will turn out to be unusual, more environmentally friendly, close to nature. But you can’t hide all the walls with living plants! This is an option for point use, creating an accent wall.
