People are constantly evolving their needs and demands with time, so the interior decorating industry is one of those few industrial segments that earns a significant market share. With the increasing number of residential complexes, there arises a need to decorate the home where the interior designers are called up. When decorating the interior of a flat or a home, these interior designers or architects study the entire structure and decide what sort of decoration to make the home brilliantly designed and textured.

And for this, the wall coverings are one of the key components used by the architects and designers as it makes their work easy and better.

Paint is used as an outer and inner covering for walls of the home and covers a bigger market share than the wall coverings.
