As an architect, you understand that the interior of a space is equally as important as the exterior. With that being said, it’s important to keep up with the ever-changing trends of interior design. Unfortunately, staying ahead of trends in order to create an up-to-date, contemporary space comes at a cost. While you want to cater to the personal design taste of your client and future occupants, it can be difficult to achieve the desired aesthetic in a cost-effective manner due to the cost of high-quality materials.

A Sophisticated Space, at What Cost?

Working within a budget while also meeting the personal taste of your client can seem virtually impossible. Materials that are trendy and modern may potentially be out of the budget range for your project. On the other hand, low-cost materials that fall within the budget may be of lower quality. This not only results in the potential need for replacement down the line, but it also may result in a cheaper appearance, degrading the overall aesthetic of your design. 

With a limited budget and few options, it can be difficult to find materials that meet your clients’ vision without compromising functionality, quality, or the appearance of the space’s interior. How can one keep up with constantly changing trends in a cost-effective manner? 3M offers a beautiful yet affordable solution: DI-NOC Architectural Finishes.

DI-NOC Architectural Finishes Redefine the Interior of a Space

DI-NOC Architectural Finishes can refresh virtually any surface, simulating the look of both natural and synthetic materials, at a fraction of the cost of traditional materials like wood, metal, or stone. Instead of choosing a lower quality material that fails to meet the vision of your client, or spending excessive amounts of money on high-quality materials that consume your budget, architectural finishes can achieve the best of both worlds. Create your client’s dream interior, without going over budget or utilizing cheap design elements. DI-NOC Architectural Finishes are durable and simple to clean, maintain, and update, keeping a space fresh for years to come. 

Offering a variety of colors, materials, textures, and patterns, there is sure to be a finish that will meet the vision of your client. Not to mention, should your client ever want to refresh their space in the future, DI-NOC Architectural Finishes allow for easy updates, without the cost and disruption of renovation. On another note, architectural finishes can also acquire LEED credits for buildings because they are incredibly sustainable, minimizing a building’s impact on the environment by utilizing low-emitting materials and reducing waste. Save both yourself and your client convenience and money by choosing architectural finishes as a solution for updating a space.

Where Can Architectural Finishes be Used?

One of the most notable features of architectural finishes is that they can be applied to virtually any non-porous surface, both indoors and outdoors. Not only can they be used on walls, but also they are also an excellent solution for resurfacing elevators, desks, ceilings, countertops, doors, and more. Elevate the look of the space’s interior in many unique ways depending on the vision of your client. Looking to refresh the elevator doors in a hotel lobby, or perhaps revamp the countertops of an office reception desk? With architectural finishes, the creative design opportunities are endless, and the result is a beautiful interior featuring contemporary, clean surfaces.
