Feature Wall Ideas
If you are looking to draw extra attention to a particular room in your home, a feature wall is a great way to do so. Think of it as a large centerpiece. Creating a feature wall will change the style of your home and be photo-worthy for years to come. They can be done on almost any budget, and you can choose how creative it is. Here are a few ideas to get your wheels turning on a feature wall.
Cultured stone is a bit more of a challenge to do by yourself and more expensive than other options, but produces very eye-catching results. You can choose from an array of shapes and colors to fit the room you are designing. It is best to search for stone on sale at a building store to help cut costs. Try to find a store that will allow you to take samples home so that you can see what they look like under your lighting to best decide what you will choose.
A benefit of using tile for your feature wall is that it is more cost-effective and stores typically have tons of samples to choose from. As with the cultured stone, you can hold samples up in your home to look at what is best before making a permanent decision. Different sizes and shapes can be mixed together to create a unique look, so get creative with it!
Painting a feature wall definitely wins the contest in terms of a lower budget project. You can choose any color from subtle to bold to fit your preferences. It may even be worth experimenting with color-blocking or creating patterns with painters tape. The possibilities are endless. Having a unique paint color on one wall also makes a great backdrop for hanging your favorite pictures and pieces of art.
This is the biggest trend right now in DIY projects and for good reason. The finished product is a beautiful, distressed, southern look that mixes perfectly with the modern home. Pallets are easily accessible in most home improvement stores or you can cut and distress wood by hand for a truly unique look.
