They may be just imitations, but when you’ve got hundreds of options to choose from, who would complain? Artificial finishes or faux finishes are versatile and often more affordable, making them easily adaptable to the different requirements of your space.

Grass carpets are easy to maintain and kid-friendly. These olefin-based and woven polypropylene surface finish can be used in faux pocket gardens or in semi-outdoor areas such as the lanai or poolside.
