Feature walls act as a focal point of a room, they draw the eye and allow you to use a splash of a daring colour or texture you would never use on a larger scale. While choosing the right paint can enhance the quality, durability and feel of the walls and ceilings, there is an array of other materials you can use to create the ultimate look for your home.
Be inspired by some of our favourite and unique feature wall designs and try them out in your own home!
A touch of timber
Add warmth to a simple colour palette instantly with the use of a wood feature wall. Choose something similar to your flooring to create unity, or try something different to make it really stand out. Creating a wooden feature wall behind your TV is a great way to enhance what should be the focal point of your living room. You can even try it on the ceiling!
Transform your wall with tantalising tiles
A rising trend in home design is the use of a feature tile in your bathroom or ensuite. Trying a different or coloured tile is a great way to break up the monotony that can occur in a bathroom. Whether it appears as a strip under your mirror or a complete wall, feature tiles add a new dimension to the room.
The non-committal wall decal
Unwilling to commit to a feature wall? Why not try wall decal. Decals are giant vinyl stickers that come in a range of different colours, styles and shapes to help create a unique space in your home. Marketed as easy to install and easy-to-remove, you can find almost any shape or picture you desire with this rising home décor trend.
The perfect paint for a traditional approach
Sometimes, nothing beats a good old painted feature wall. Whether you want to create subtle shading or a bold statement, a good feature wall will provide layer and depth to your home. Test your chosen colour on an inconspicuous area and examine it in the morning, afternoon and evening light, as well as under artificial globes before committing.
