A feature wall can add a key point of interest within any home – and can provide you with a quick and low-cost way to make a big difference to a room. If you’re not sure where to start with your feature wall design, our team has created this list of tips on getting it right…
Go for a bright colour
If there’s a bright and bold colour you love, but may be too much for a whole room, a feature wall is the perfect solution. This works particularly well if the rest of the room is neutral, with subtle accents of that colour.
Bring the outdoors indoors
The trend of bringing the outdoors indoors is very popular right now, with live plants becoming a prominent feature in the home. Monopolise on this trend with a green, plant-based feature wall. This can be achieved through a printed wallpaper (think tropical leaves or wildflower prints) or add custom shelving to hold a selection of potted plants.
Change things up with wall stickers
Wall stickers can be applied directly to your wall to give you an almost instant feature wall – without any of the fuss. Wall stickers come in all varieties, from beautiful trees, words and mottos, to more quirky pieces. Wall stickers are also a great choice for children’s bedrooms, with playful designs available to please any child.
In the frame
Using a variety of photo frames across a single wall will help you to make a real feature of your images. The key here is that the frames themselves are just as important as what goes in them. Decide what you want to frame, then you have the choice: choose the same size and arrange in an ordered fashion – or get mismatched frames and arrange them in a more haphazard way.
Create a wall mural with an oversized image
A great result can be achieved if you choose a blown-up image for your feature wall. Whether there’s a photo that you love, a landscape – or you’ve chosen something from the wallpaper provider – a photo-based wall mural can completely transform a room into something very personal.
