If you’re getting a little tired of your current décor and ready for something new then designing a feature wall could be the perfect solution. They can provide you with a quick and low-cost way to make a big difference to a room. However if you’re not sure where to start, DM Design, bespoke bathroom specialists, has created this list of tips for getting it right…
Bring you room to life
Bringing plant life in from the outdoors is so on trend right now. Making live plants a prominent feature in the home brings the room to life. You can 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.
Be bright and bold
The aim of a feature wall is to make a statement within your room. Whilst neutral colours are great for the majority of the room, your feature wall needs to stand out, so stay clear from dull colours for the wall. 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.
Frame it right
Designing a feature wall doesn’t have to be complicated. Something as simple as using a variety of photo frames across a single wall will help you to make a real feature of your images – and showcase your favourite happy memories. 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.
Change things up with wall stickers
Wall stickers can be a trendy technique to use to make a wall stand out in a room. They 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.
Bigger the better
A good way to make a statement is to utilise something that you love. 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. Try having the image blown up onto the wall – it could really stand out and make a great focal point.
