Dubai-based Creative Wrap says it offers a cost-effective, eco-friendly solution for renovating homes and commercial spaces in less time, whilst providing huge cost savings compared to conventional methods.
The company introduced the UAE to a unique concept of using architectural film to upcycle and transform spaces when it was set up in 2018, and since then has served the needs of more than 6,000 households and commercial properties using over 10 km of its film every month.
“From kitchens to bathrooms, lobbies to lifts and everything in between, thousands of Dubai residents have now enjoyed the many benefits of ‘wrapping’ their tired, outdated homes and commercial spaces, giving them a fresh new lease of life in just a fraction of the time – removing the need for weeks of labour, heavy-duty tools and a messy environment,” says Lloyd Williams, Co-Founder.
The architectural film offers the advantages of being fully waterproof, scratch resistant, antibacterial and having anti-mould and self-extinguishing properties. Offering a five-year warranty, all Creative Wrap solutions are guaranteed for 10 years and are a truly sustainable option to upscale the interior spaces, he adds.
“With approximately 743,000 homes in the UAE, there is an ongoing demand for property renovations in the region, which has led to a sixfold increase in revenue year-on-year to date and 50 per cent growth year-on-year projected for 2022 for Creative Wrap,” comments Aaron Mitchell, who jointly set up the company with Williams.
The idea behind Creative Wrap stemmed from Williams seeking an innovative yet cost-effective way to upgrade his Dubai rental property. During his research, he discovered that no company in the UAE specialised in the concept of interior wrapping with architectural film.
As the first interior wrapping company in the region, Creative Wrap began its journey with one roll of architectural film and three staff, and has grown to comprise a team of more than 100 working across the GCC in the UAE, Egypt and Brunei with further expansion in Lebanon and the wider Gulf region by the year-end.
Creative Wrap will launch in Lebanon by Q4 of this year and intends to launch in Europe by 2023-end. The company has a 4,000-sq-ft showroom in Dubai Investment Park and plans to open in other areas within the region.
Creative Wrap is now a multi-million-dollar company and the largest interior wrap company in the world, Williams claims.
“For Creative Wrap, quality products and installation, affordability, sustainability and providing value are the most important drivers of its business,” Mitchell states.
Some of the company’s commercial projects include Reel Cinemas, Dubai Police, Ibn Battuta Mall, Movenpick Hotels and Burj Khalifa, as well as a host of malls, gyms and hotels.
