Architectural film: don’t replace, just restore

Do you ever look at your interior space and realise just how old and drab everything looks? You know you want to do a complete re-vamp, but you are worried about the costs that will come with doing that?

Well, BODAQ introduces a cost-effective way to do a complete remodelling by not replacing, but restoring old high quality interior finishes (furniture, doors, front desks etc.) with architectural film.

Using architectural film is faster, easier and cheaper than doing a complete replacement of interior finishes that are still in great shape – but need a boost. This is especially useful for high traffic areas such as hotels, where rooms, doors and corridor walls are one of the interior finishes that sustain most of the wear and tear.

Architectural Film vs. Traditional Renovation

Traditional renovation consists of doing a complete replacement of all integral parts to an interior space – whether it is tearing out older looking floors or completely replacing high quality furniture. Architectural film takes what you have right now and simply revamps it to become more modern and cleaner looking.

The key advantages of doing architectural film over traditional renovations are:

  • Quick turnaround time
  • Easy to clean and maintain
  • Saves on costs

Several other benefits are:

Limitless Designs

Architectural film comes in a seemingly limitless number of patterns, colours and textures. Some examples of these are:

  • Wood (such as teak, oak and cherry)
  • Stone and Marble
  • Fabrics
  • Metals
  • Leather


There are so many ways that architectural film can be applied, and also so many places where it can be applied. There are multiple application areas for architectural film that comes in all shapes, sizes and measurements. Some examples are doors and walls, kitchen cabinets and office tables, and more.

This ease in application is useful for more complex spaces such as interior elevator cabs, hotel lobbies, show rooms etc. Architectural film is made for moulding to design elements of complex shapes and sizes.
