    By the 21st of October, 2015, we were supposed to have hover boards, “Jaws 19,” and flying cars – according to the cult sequel, “Back to the Future II.” While the movie’s overly optimistic vision of the future never came to pass, there have been a number of amazing technological advances in recent years.

    When new technologies come to the fore, it often opens up new possibilities for applications in multiple industries. The wallpaper industry, especially, has greatly benefited from technologies designed to bring breath taking visions to life.

    Many of the effects that once involved large scale renovations are now easily achieved through the use of wallpaper. For homeowners, wallpaper is a much cheaper and convenient option as it is easily replaced when you get bored with the style in a room.

    Stone Effect

    One of the most popular trends in modern wallpaper is stone effect. You can completely change the look of a room with authentic stone effect wallpaper. To the casual observer the wallpaper looks just like a wall built from stone.

    There are a number of variations on this theme. You can have a rock wall, brick, granite, or marble effect. The effect is so realistic that most people will not believe it is wallpaper until they actually touch the surface.

    Stone effect wallpaper is ideal for transforming a room or creating a feature wall.  Depending on the type of stone effect that you choose, you can add either a rustic or ultra-modern style to any room in your home. To truly appreciate the diversity in available styles, visit sites like Pinterest to see how stone effect wall paper is being used to revitalize boring decor.

    3D Wallpaper

    3D as a technology is finally producing the results that we have all been waiting for. While gaming enthusiasts are looking to virtual reality headsets for aesthetic pleasure, homeowners are taking advantage of what the technology has to offer by way of wallpaper.

    The themes are possibilities are practically limitless when it comes to 3D wallpaper. Cartoon and gaming trends are especially popular in children’s rooms. Adults, on the other hand, tend to gravitate towards stunning visual art.

    3D wallpaper is also a great way to create optical illusions in a room. You can use it to create the impression of a larger space, or wow friends and family with intricately detailed optical illusion artwork.

    Custom Wallpaper
