Walls represent potential

Walls have structural value, of course. But, their role extends beyond that, too. Walls stand for extra space you didn’t think you had. They stand for definition of a whole space, and re-imagining them can enhance that definition, opening up all kinds of possibilities.

Sometimes, it’s just an additional texture. It can be a color, or specialized pattern. Sometimes, it’s just an image. Whatever element or combination of elements you go with, know that there is a world of potential that can be unlocked.
