Feature walls offer the perfect opportunity to experiment with an array of colours and patterns. A relatively easy and cost-effective way to liven up your home without the hassle of having to completely re-decorate, here are some of our Top Tips when it comes to upgrading your existing walls:
Consider the option of paint if you don't feel like wallpaper would suit your desired surface. Both straight-forward and inexpensive, paints can easily be applied (and removed) to your feature wall without making such a big commitment (as opposed to wallpapering).
Always make sure your chosen wallpaper (patterned or plain) complements your existing colour scheme. There's nothing worse than a colour-clash, so be sure to double check that your favourite design fits in well given its surroundings (this also includes furniture and interior decor).
Make sure you opt to add a feature wall to a spacious and well-light room. Choosing to add a feature wall to a small room will only make it look even smaller, so it's best to cover all the walls if you fancy a change in colours.
Random selection is not the best way to establish which wall is best for a feature wall. Always make sure you choose walls that highlight a room's existing focal point - i.e. a wall behind the mantel, behind the television, or even behind the headboard in a bedroom.
Don't just stick to wallpaper and paints when it comes to creating a feature wall! Materials such as stone and reclaimed wood also make great options for textualising a feature wall.
