The term “feature wall” may be something that’s familiar with you. However, for most folks, the term is something of a new concept. But, in reality, the term “feature wall” is a relatively simple idea, once you understand just how to incorporate it into your home design. Just like; a bath vanity cabinet, bar counter design, kitchen island, wardrobe design or office cabinets, a feature wall is easy to employ, once you’ve considered some ideas of your own.

This is especially true when it comes to a feature wall, which is currently making a comeback in home design. Today, they employ more modern choice as far as textures, finishes and colours. The goal is to add a higher level of interest to a space that would otherwise be too plain.
Why Have a Feature Wall?
Of course, utilising a more creative element in a room that appears to be too plain is the obvious reason for having a feature wall. But, the addition of a feature wall can also employ more transformation effects and design improvements that are more subtle in nature. An example of this would be to paint one wall of a bathroom darker than the rest. The effect that this has is the addition of greater depth. The same holds true for the addition of a mirrored wall to a smaller bedroom.
The feature wall can also be highlighted with a number of distinguishing additions in order to employ various harmonising elements. An example of this would be the addition of a dining table and subsequent dining table accessories that will serve to create a dining room space within a living room area.
The Opposite Also Holds True
Just as a feature wall can add a focal point to a room, it can also serve to draw one’s attention away from something that you may wish others not to focus on. For example, a room may have a window with a less than pleasant view. Employing a feature wall can serve to draw attention from something that you consider unsightly to a wall that has been designed to be interesting and more pleasant.
