Apartment Renovation with Nelcos Architectural Film

Architectural Film is Not Only For Commercial Use


Apartment Renovation

If you ever wondered where to use an architectural film in a residential space, for instance, in apartment renovation, then continue reading.

Door Renovation

Let’s start our apartment renovation tour at the entrance. Door renovation is a common area of architectural film application. Basically, you can change the look of your door without changing the door itself. So among all the benefits of a new looking door, you also receive that result at a fraction of a price. You have to agree, that getting a new door is quite expensive.

Look at the photo below to see how we have used our Gainsboro Gray Interior Film Pattern from the Solid Colors Collection on an apartment entrance door.

Wall Refinish

The next option for an apartment is wrapping a wall – one as a statement of the interior, or all, as an alternative of  paint or wallpaper. For instance, at the photos below you can see how we have used interior film to make a focal point in a room. 


As you can see, we have changed the entire room just by wrapping  one wall with the TNS03 Gray Leather Interior Film from the Leather Collection.


When looking closely, you can see the actual leather texture. Moreover, you can feel it because it imitates leather so precisely you couldn’t distinguish it from a real one.

Kitchen Renovation

And, of course, we cannot mention the possibility to renovate a kitchen. For example, on the photos below we have refinished kitchen countertops with the NS814 Cremona Arabescato interior film pattern from the Stone & Marble Collection. No one could ever say it is not a marble slab.

Continuing kitchen theme, let’s take a look at the full kitchen renovation we have finished in Coal Harbour, Vancouver.  

In this renovation project, we have used the BZ883 Oak pattern from the Rich Wood Collection to refinish lower cabinets and the NS820 Metallic Fabric from the Texture Patterns for the upper cabinets.

The next kitchen renovation differs from the previous one because there we have refinished not only cabinets and countertops, but also wrapped a fridge. 

For this project, we have used several architectural film patterns from our Catalog. These are:


And for the fridge, we have used RM007 Real Metal from Texture Patterns. The choice was made before we have received a new Appliance Skins Collection that was designed specifically to imitate the metallic appliance surface. Now it is even easier to upgrade the look of a dated fridge. 


Bathroom Renovation

As we are slowly moving from one room to another, let’s take a look at a bathroom. Because of its unique qualities, an architectural film can be used in rooms with high humidity. It does not absorb moisture and has anti-fungus properties so you can be sure it is safe to use it in bathrooms.

For the project you see on the photos below, we have used the NS814 Arabescato pattern from the Stone & Marble Collection. The same pattern has been used to refinish a window sill in the same bathroom.


And last but not least, is a bathroom renovation project where we have refinished bathroom cabinets. Although, they looked nice but were a little outdated. So when it comes to such pieces, an architectural film can change everything on a small budget. You do not have to throw away those old fashioned cabinets, just wrap them with our film and maybe upgrade knobs. That is really all you need.
