Warm gray: 2016 Color Trends in Interior Design

Looking for the best colors to add to your interior? Maybe you’re designing your space for the first time or maybe you’re looking to refresh –either way, one of the best places to start is with color! This article is part of a series about three popular interior design color trends, of fall 2016.  

Trend 3: Warm Gray

Neutral and inviting, the warm gray trend brings a clean, comforting touch to interiors. This trend can use a variety of grays and whites, working well when paired with other neutral tones. Warm gray can be used as a base color and can be kept neutral or contrasted with a more prismatic tone to create a focal point for the interior.

Four reasons you shouldn't be without PVC wall protection in your commercial kitchen

When you're in charge of a commercial kitchen, keeping everything clean and inspection ready can be a challenge. Old finishes that peel, chip, and look gray and dull even when cleaned, can lead to lowered cleanliness standards among employees. Over time, it can be hard to tell the real dirt, mildew and general unsanitary surfaces from just an appearance - especially for inspectors, tenants or patrons.

Easy to clean

Wall panels are not paint nor are they tile. Stain-resistant and nonporous, they are frequently made out of plastic or PVC. Water will have nowhere to hide. Mold, yeast and mildew won't have a chance. Wall protection panels have easy maintenance and stay looking clean for years and years. Since wall panels don't peel and flake, you'll find no crevices for nasty food particles and other debris to hide. Thus reducing cross-contamination, airborne viruses, bacteria and fungus.


PVC wall panels are durable - they last. They don't chip and shed. When you install wall panels in a commercial kitchen, you know you are investing for the future of your kitchen and not just getting a nice-looking bandage.

Three times more impact resistant than FRP, Altro Puraguard PVC wall panels are durable and can prevent damage to the wall from moving carts, bumps and dings. That also means no airborne fibers if it is damaged, unlike FRP, that can cause tiny particles to fall into food.

Meets and Exceeds Regulatory Standards

The FDA requires that wall and floor finishes be durable, easy to clean and nonabsorbent. Various products try to meet these standards, but wall panels meet and exceed all safety standards.

Cost Effective

Wall panels are an integrated solution that meets the demands of commercial kitchens. With custom trims, connectors and corners, Altro Puraguard will install quick and easy with minimal kitchen shut down, saving time, hassle and the loss of business. An incredible return on investment whether you own a restaurant, commercial kitchen, or design kitchen interiors.
