Wall Theory helps Bong Bain from Wild Hearts Home to put a unique, industrial touch into her 14-year-old son's bedroom.

Wall Theory had the opportunity to help Bong with a project for her son.
He is 14 years old, and she was looking to renovate his room inspired by an industrial style with that “cool” vibe, perfect for a teenager, so she thought that our faux concrete wall panels would be perfect! (And a major plus was that her son also thought that the faux concrete panels were “cool!”)
Designing a room for a teenage boy isn’t easy because these years are often tumultuous for them. They are no longer happy with their childhood wall color, toys, and or décor theme. Bong asked her son to think of a combination of all the favorite elements he wanted to incorporate in his room décor.
Bong and her son weren’t sure about the final panel color they wanted for the space so we shipped them out samples of the four different colors available in our faux concrete panels, UrbanConcrete. Our panel samples were super helpful in giving them a good idea of how the panel would actually look on the wall.
They decided to go with the Washed Grey color of our hourwall brand, UrbanConcrete panels.
We then provided Bong with the UrbanConcrete panels for her son’s bedroom renovation, and she was amazed about how easy and quick the install was. She shared the process with her audience and mentioned how she easily cut the panels with her circular saw. She did the entire install by herself. These panels can be used either vertically or horizontally, and she decided to install the panels vertically to give more height to the room.
Bong and her son were very happy with the result because of the panel’s realistic texture. She said:
“It looks like real cement, and that is so cool for the industrial look I was going for.”
A crucial part of this process was to create a space that her son would like, and consulting his preferences was definitely the best idea to find out what his interests were in terms of textures and colors and to try to incorporate these with simple touches and minimalistic furniture, which can be easily changed as he grows.
We are grateful for being part of this project and the learning process with the Wild Hearts Home Community. Special thanks to Bong and her son for trust in our products.
