Feature walls are a great way to inject some added colour and personality into a room. They can also be used to help break up open plan living spaces or to highlight a particular aspect of a room. However, there are some tips and tricks out there to help you take your feature wall and turn it into a real work of art – something to catch the eye.
Also, smaller walls are generally better than larger ones. Larger walls, if made into a feature, can tend to dominate a space rather than accentuate it. Walk into the room to see which wall immediately grabs attention – this is generally a great way to see where a feature wall would have the most effect. If this is not possible, try to have a look at a plan of the room and see if you can select a wall from there. An interior decorator will also be able to help you.
Wallpaper is also making a return and it is a great way to add patterns or texture to the room without the potential to overwhelm it. Other textured finishes you could try include render or even cladding with materials such as timber.
