Feature walls – Make a bold statement and spice up your living space.

With the arrival of the new decade, it may just be time to spice up your house.  Investing in a feature wall is a great way to add a fun and fresh feeling to your living space. After all, we are spending more time than ever before in our homes, so why not make a bold, funky statement?  Feature walls are great in that they allow you to transform a space, whilst still being a small and achievable project.

There are various ways to go about designing a feature wall for you home.  We suggest that you first identify the space and then choose the colours and design to match this space. Below are some ideas to inspire you.

Painting a bold colour

This is perhaps the easiest and most obvious way to add a bold splash of colour and interest to a room.  What we love about coloured feature walls is that they allow you to incorporate darker and richer accent colours into your home. For example, painting an entire room in a dark navy may make the space feel claustrophobic and dark, whilst a feature wall of the same colour enhances the room but doesn’t completely dominate the environment.  Book one of our trusted painters to add some colour to your house.

Built-in bookshelf

Are you someone who loves to read?  Have you recently made the transition to working from home?  Are you in need of more storage space?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, then a built-in bookshelf may be the ideal feature wall for you.  This is a great way of creating both interest and storage space in a room.  Book one of our trusted carpenters to turn this idea in to a reality.
