FAB FEATURE WALLS

Feature walls (or accent walls) are all the rage right now. There are many ways to add a focal point to any room by using millwork, wallpaper, paint, wall panels, or tile. We have selected a few of our favorite feature walls, linked to original content and some with instructions on how to DIY!


MILLWORK


Using wood or MDF to create a pattern on a wall can be an easy DIY if you have the right tools, patience and skills to pull it off. Geometric patterns, board and batten and shiplap are all very popular choices. Using a neutral paint colour will add texture without being too bold, or if bold is your style, using black, navy and shades of green are very on trend right now.

PAINT


Adding colour to a wall by using painters tape, a stencil or sponge is an inexpensive do-it-yourself way to add interest to a wall. Color-blocking is thought of as the exploration of taking colors that are opposites on the color wheel and pairing them together to make interesting and complementary color combinations

WALLPAPER


I always recommend hiring a pro to install wallpaper, but if you are adventurous you can attempt it yourself. Peel and stick wallpaper is very forgiving and if you get a quality wallpaper, it can look just as good as the real thing.

WALL PANELS


MDF wall panels are generally inexpensive, and can be installed easily with construction glue and a nail gun. They will need to be custom cut to size and typically come in 4' x 8' sheets. Acoustic panels are a good idea in media rooms to keep sound and echo down.

TILE


Adding even a small tile accent in a space can provide a big impact. Adding tile in a nook, shower niche, fireplace, behind an appliance, TV or on a smaller wall can create visual interest without breaking the bank.
