Sustainable Wall Coverings
In the design world, it’s so easy to forget how simple it can be to upgrade an interior without the need for chopping down trees. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the fast-fashion industry that we overlook what is right in front of us and opt for the brand new simply because it is on-trend and in style.
However, going back to basics with nature, to give that rustic and wooden atmosphere, has cropped up again and again. Naturewall are a UK sustainable wall coverings specialist, and pride themselves on bringing this feel of comfort and timelessness into homes and commercial spaces.
We have created a number of eco-friendly wall products that not only find themselves remaining on-trend as designs change, but are some of the most durable wall coverings. Being long-lasting, adaptable, and eco-friendly makes them sustainable for you and our planet.
Our Bespoke Eco-friendly Wall Products
Of course, all of our SlatWall panels are backed onto our classic felt backing that is made from recycled plastic bottles — but that is not all. We also make use of reclaimed wood to create our beautifully unique 3D & Reclaimed products. The nature of the build means that every panel will be different. You can truly say that your wall is a one-of-a-kind.
Using our reclaimed planks, sold in packs of 18 to cover 1m², you can add an authentic edge to any room. Perfect for more sustainable bedroom ideas, living and dining rooms, or place in an office space to bring in that extra luxury to the work environment. The mixture of tones and deep grains are caused naturally by weathering, ensuring these eco-friendly alternatives to plasterboard, paint or plaster have distinctive texture and character.
Styling Grey Pine
The darker effect of the Grey Pine is ideal when putting together a cosy and relaxing vibe, and is a great idea to cover wallpaper. Match with minimal dark furniture to highlight the textures whilst maintaining a moody atmosphere. If you prefer something less mysterious, enhance the grey and lighter tones of the planks with more neutral creams and beiges.
Light up those candles and cover yourself in blankets as the Grey Pine transports you to a Wintery log cabin. Want this feel all year round? Use the eco-friendly panels to cover a full room. Or, open up those curtains and let in all the natural light, making the rustic appearance really stand out. Choose a single feature wall that is adjacent to your windows for the sun to bounce off.
Styling Natural Pine
For more sustainable interior ideas, the warm wood tones of the Natural Pine planks can adapt for any occasion. Brighten up a room as the light reflects off the yellow and orange tones, ideal for highlighting various wall hangings like art and mirrors. Bring in the outdoors even more by attaching plant holders or trailing your Devil’s Ivy along hooks to create a border. Use in a front porch or hallway to welcome guests with a personalised coat rack feature.
The reclaimed Natural Pine is an eco-friendly wall material that has a wonderful neutral colour that you can pair with any season. Whether you are hanging up festive green garlands for Christmas or stringing up lights for Diwali, you can decorate to your own likings without a worry of clashes. Even better if you fancy freshening up your furniture!
Fancy something even more unique and just to your taste? You can mix up our Reclaimed planks using both the Grey and Natural Pine. A contrast of light and dark that fits to your own personality, but guaranteed to provide an eco-friendly wall finish.
Looking for something to make a statement and, literally, stand-out from all other wooden walls? Check out our beautiful three-dimensional panels, sold in packs of 12 panels to cover 1m². Made out of reclaimed blocks of teak, these are a great use of eco-friendly materials for houses and social spaces. Natural weathering causes the various shapes, sizes and textures of each wooden piece, making each panel different to the next.
Much like the Natural Pine, our 3D Colorado panels are also an eco-friendly wall covering with the adaptability to fit all rooms and occasions. The neutral warm wood colour can be matched with darker furniture and decoration for cosiness, or show off your boldness with bright colours.
Showcase works of contemporary art in the centre of a feature wall, or add interesting light fixtures hanging from the ceiling. We love the restaurant set up in the photo above. The Colorado wall behind the yellow seating is fun and youthful, with the possibility of a dramatic mood change from the lighting. Perfect for a light lunch by day and cocktail bar by night.
Bring out your creativity with the exciting pops of colour of the traditional Javanese houses and finishing boats that are reclaimed for our 3D Java panels. We all need a bit of colour in our life, and the character of these natural and painted planks not only gives you new and unique décor, but brings a little bit of history into your interiors.
Add to your kid's bedroom for an enjoyable morning wake up routine, or give your office space more eco-friendly wall finishes. Pair with other bright colours, or simply add those neutrals to make your wall the true centre of attention.
