Why You Need a Feature Wall in Your Space

Your walls are blank canvas, and you’re Picasso.

If all the walls in your rooms are painted in the same colour, your space may be cohesive but plain. Introduce a feature wall as a quick way to revive your space.

Give your space a fresh new face without the expense of redecorating or redesigning the entire room. A feature wall is a style statement every home needs. If you’re not convinced, here are more why a feature wall is great:

1 Dramatic Focal Point

As its name suggests, a feature wall is used to highlight a section of your space. It’s a great way to get guests to focus on a part of your home that you worked extra hard on. Feature walls aren’t only for homes, this commercial unit uses a feature wall to highlight their brand. They have transformed a plain wall by incorporating colours, textures, and patterns that immediately direct your attention to the space.

2 Try out Trends

A feature wall is a great way to try out trends or designs you wouldn’t dare try on a bigger scale. So, if you’re too afraid to try the wallpaper trend or a bold colour, test it out on your feature wall. It’s an easy way to reflect your creativity without going overboard.

3 Express Personal Style

It can be tricky to fully express your personal style in your space, if it’s too bold or quirky, it can reduce the market price of your home. So instead of painting the town (or your home) red, pick a wall and let your creative juices flow. It’s easier to repaint a single wall than an entire room.

4 Add Some Dimension

Depending on the pattern, style, and texture you use, a feature wall can give depth and dimension to your space without any major works. For instance, painting your feature wall a darker tone automatically gives the illusion of a larger room. Textured walls, on the other hand, add character to your space. So, skip the major renovation and opt to trick the eye instead.

Pro Tip: If you’re still not sold on the idea of a dramatic feature wall, why not try this simple trick that lets you have the best of both worlds. Pick a wall in a creative space in your home and paint it over with chalkboard paint. This way, you’ll have a space to ideate or doodle, then erase it all when you want a clean, bare wall!
