Feature walls are a great way to make a space stand out. Whether you want to make a statement or wish to express yourself, feature walls are great canvases to add style and individuality to your home. From using paint to installing more unusual materials to a wall, here are some ideas.
Add three-dimensional appeal for the most impact! Experiment with unusual choices like corrugated metal, or create the illusion of depth with photo-realistic wallpaper!
Play it cool
If you want to inject some playfulness in your space, but are worried about going overboard, stick to deeper shades in the same colour family. Accented with berry tones, this living room oozes warmth and is unique yet classy!
Do it yourself
Decals are great for several reasons: they’re available in almost any theme, affordable, easy to apply, removable, and you can position them around any existing fixtures!
Go for functional feature walls
Rocking an open floor-plan? If you’re a big foodie, you could consider drawing attention to your kitchen with coloured cabinetry or statement-making shelving units that show off your stylish dishware. Modular kitchen systems offer more flexibility than before by letting you mix and match from a wide range of cabinetry, as well as customising them to suit different heights, widths and depths.
Get inspired by nature
Stone or burnished metal walls are the perfect options for modern and sleek interiors. They add just that bit of irregularity without being distracting, and they come in earthy or grey tones that complement your furnishings and contemporary decor.
Get creative with tiles
In addition to picking tiles in unusual patterns and shapes, add one more level of visual interest by tiling only part of the wall. It’s more unpredictable for a striking effect.
Feel good effect
Create unique feature walls that resemble linen, marble, metal or velvet with Dulux Ambiance Special Effects Paint. It requires a lot less maintenance than wallpaper, but you are encouraged to engage a Dulux certified painter for the best results.
