Feature walls provide energy and vibrancy to liven up a space. There are a number of feature wall types as well as common things to consider when creating your feature wall. This blog post will answer the essential questions when creating the ideal feature wall for your home.
First things to consider
Firstly, make sure that your feature wall highlights your rooms existing focal point. Not only in the bathroom on your shower-wall or behind the oven in the kitchen, this could also be your living room where your fireplace sits, the wall where the TV is or the wall behind the headboard in the bedroom. It is important that the feature wall is the wall which the eye is naturally drawn to within that room.
What are the different types of feature walls?
The type of feature wall that you select will depend on a number of things, such as the size and location of the wall, and the lighting the room, as well as the colours and textures that you wish to use. Feature walls were commonly created with the use of paint, wallpaper and now more recently, tiles. For bathrooms and kitchens, tiles are often the best option. Tiles can come in a variety of finishes, sizes and colours, making them the perfect option to add an element of attraction and fun to your kitchen backsplash or bathroom wall. At Tile & Stone Gallery we have a range of high quality tiles to set your feature wall apart from the rest of your home.
What should I avoid when creating my feature wall?
Make sure that the colour or pattern that you choose complements the design of the rest of the room. Making the feature wall bright and bold to stand out is a great idea, however, if this clashes with the rest of the room or there is too much clutter, then the room will not be visually pleasing to look at.
