INCORPORATING LARGE WALL UNITS

incorporating light lacquer funiture

When incorporating large custom units in a space, it’ss recommended to use a lacquer finish in a light color or the same color as the wall where the unit will be located. Since most wall units are larger in size, are functional and created mainly to provide storage or a working space, picking the right color and finish is essential. I recommend a light or matching color finish that will help reduce the visual impact and give the wall unit a more harmonious, proportional and overall less overpowering feel. Wall units of these sizes generally are not designed to be the focal point of an interior.
