So, you want to incorporate a feature wall in your home, but you’re not sure if your chosen colour will create the right atmosphere. Feature walls are a great design tool for giving your room depth, so it’s important to choose a colour that doesn’t make the space seem smaller than it already is, while also staying away from colours that will only be on trend for a short time (remember the rust red feature wall trend?).
We’ve put together a list of dos and don’ts when it comes to choosing your feature wall, and if you ever feel stuck, remember you can always call on the team at Thomas Fisher Painters!
Do – Choose a Neutral Colour Tone
Feature walls are used to create depth in a home, and are a great design tool for any DIYer. Using neutral tones, such as charcoals, silver greys and beiges, or muted earthy tones, will enhance your existing space. A well-chosen feature wall colour will give your room a certain ‘WOW’ factor! Try and stick with a subtle colour palette so you don’t create too much colourful chaos in your room.
Don’t – Choose a Wall at Random
Pick a wall in your room that will become the focal point – such as where the mantel or tv sits. The eye should be drawn to the one spot, and if you’re creating more than one focal point in your room the eye won’t have anywhere to rest.
Do – Pick a Colour That Complements the Rest of the Room
Whatever colour you decide on should complement the rest of the room. You might want to choose a bold and bright colour, but it might clash with the smaller accents in the space.
Don’t – Choose an Overcrowded Room
If your chosen room already has a lot of furniture, photos hanging on the wall or decorative accents, then painting a feature wall will add another level of chaos. Either chose a less crowded room for your feature wall, or cull the amount of clutter so the feature wall can do its job – to highlight the space.
