Nashville, TN (PRWEB) May 31, 2012
In recent months, Walls Need Love has noticed a growing trend of environmentally conscious consumers abandoning traditional painting options to choose environmentally friendly vinyl wall art. In the past, many homeowners chose to have professional painters paint elaborate artwork, stencil monograms, or even paint custom murals on walls. However, due to the to the environmental impact of paint and the growing concern over volatile organic compounds, many consumers are now looking for ways to simultaneously lessen environmental impact while improving the home’s décor. The volatile organic compounds that paint contains, which are also called VOCs, are known to have negative short and long-term health effects and decrease indoor air quality. In addition, research has shown that VOCs produce urban smog, release toxins, and can cause severe allergies for some individuals.
Although the environmental impact is one reason that many consumers are turning away from traditional painting options, another practical reason is the economy. With worldwide consumers feeling the strain of the worldwide economic slowdown, budget-conscious consumers are trying to stretch every discretionary spending dollar. The professional painters, who often charge over five hundred dollars per day, have been abandoned for wall decals. Even custom-designed decals, which can be hand made to the exact consumer specifications, normally cost a small fraction of a professional painter’s fee.
The wall art, which can normally be installed in under five minutes, does not damage the underlying surface and can be easily removed at any time. Since the wall decals do not damage the walls, the vinyl wall art makes the perfect choice for both homeowners and renters. Once the vinyl wall art is installed, the finished product looks virtually identical to a custom paint job.
Ali Abrahimia, the owner of Walls Need Love, said the following regarding his company’s dedication to preserving the environment: “Walls Need Love is committed to lessening environmental impact and preserving nature for future generations. This commitment, which is apparent by our ongoing donations to Sound Forest and our involvement within our own community, runs deeply throughout our company.” Abrahimia went on to say, “The wall decals and vinyl wall art that our company offers consumers a similar look to professional painting at a fraction of the price and without the high cost. For people transitioning from professional painting, tree wall decals, monogram wall decals, and wall quotes are popular choices.”
Since the day that Walls Need Love opened, the company has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to preserving the environment and minimizing their footprint. The Nashville based interior decorating company has generously agreed to donate a percentage of every sale to Sound Forest. The non-profit, which depends on donations, partners with concerned businesses to make a positive difference in the world. The donations from Walls Need Love have provided the necessary financial support to plant thousands of trees. In addition to providing monetary resources, the owners and employees of Walls Need Love have donated their time to help preserve a nationally-renowned local elephant sanctuary. Walls Need Love is encouraged by the growing trend of consumers choosing environmentally wall decals over paints containing VOCs and hope the new trend continues.
