4 Creative Ideas for Feature Walls

Ever thought about having a feature wall in your lounge or living room? It can do a lot to improve the liveability and modern look of your interior if done correctly, adding depth to a room. Often we find that it’s better not to go over the top and be subtle when it comes to feature walls. There are a lot of options here; anything from a different shade or texture of paint can be used all the way up to highly decorative and artistic paint work or a totally different surface.


1. Paint Your Walls

The obvious, simplest way to create a lovely feature wall is to paint it. Colour selection is probably the trickiest part – we’d recommend speaking to a colour consultant or at the very least looking online for some ideas. A tip from us? Bright colours contrasting with darker colours usually works. Choosing the type of paint and applying it is fairly straightforward, even for amateurs.


2. Use Creative Wallpapers

Wallpaper was huge back in the 1950’s and it seems to be making a comeback in the 2010’s. Yes it can be a challenge to roll it on and remove it when the time comes, but making it the focal point in a room – rather than using it on all walls – can really be effective. The best part is there are so many options when it comes to wallpaper in term of design and colour. A word from the wise: use wallpaper behind a bed in the master bedroom.


3. Clever Use of Brick & Rocks

Brick and rock feature walls require more work and specialised skill than many do-it-yourselfers have, so we would highly recommend bringing in a qualified decorator in this case. In some cases – and this was very popular in the 80’s and 90’s – leaving exposed brick in old homes was actually less expensive to repair damaged plaster, etc. These kinds of feature walls can be used in a modern or rustic way and can create an industrial feel too.


4. Timber Panelling/Shelving

Timber walls make for a very warm, cosy vibe, especially when contrasted with concrete or tiled walls. Again there’s plenty of choices here with wide and narrow boards, various types of timber frames and the option to paint. Building wall shelves is another way to go and combines practicality and homely charm.
