A feature wall, also known as an accent wall is a great way to pull focus in a room, and create an eye-catching statement. Some walls become a focal point naturally because of placement of a big screen TV, fireplace, or another dominate feature in a room. A feature wall is a portion of a room that has a special treatment that can pack tons of style into any area, so you don’t always have to invest in a lot of materials to make the wall stand out. This design trick is all about taking a blank wall and embellishing it with unusual textures, bold colors or prints and even treasured mementos. Here are a few pictures to help with ideas and ways you can create your own special look.
Though bold treatments can be a lot of fun, a subtle shift in color, pattern, or texture is very effective in elevating the design of this space. In this living room, horizontal pieces of wood attached to the wall create a paneled look behind the TV.
In this office space, horizontal pieces of wood attached to the wall help boost this work space to a new level of liveliness.
On one wall behind the bed, wood has been attached to the wall in a pattern design then painted all one shade of white; it’s a gentler approach that still draws the eye.
This feature wall really makes a stunning statement and shows you that tile doesn’t only have to be used for flooring. This beautiful white tile really creates a dramatic entrance into a small space by creating some visual interest.
Try adding a bold paint shade, sometimes it is the simplest solution and works wonders. If you’re looking for a low effort, high impact feature wall, choose a bold paint shade, paint one wall and you can have a room update completed in an afternoon.
Creating moments within your living space make a blah room a work of art and an expression of your personality. Get creative!
