If you're looking for a way to add some personality and style to your home, consider using wallpaper as a feature wall. There are so many great options to choose from, so you can find one that perfectly suits your taste. In this post, we'll share with you the benefits of using wallpaper for your feature wall as well as give you 20 ideas to get you started!

What is a feature wall?

A feature wall is a specific wall in a room or space that is highlighted with a unique design element, such as a bold colour or interesting texture. This focal point can add visual interest and draw the eye to a certain area of the room. Feature walls are popular in living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms, but can also be used in offices or commercial spaces. 

Creating a feature wall can range from simply painting it a standout colour to installing custom tile or wallpaper. Some choose to display a gallery wall or hang an oversized piece of artwork on their feature wall. The options are endless, but it is important to consider the overall design aesthetic and flow of the space when selecting a feature wall treatment. 

One important note: a feature wall should not overwhelm the room or clash with the existing design. It should complement and enhance the space, rather than detract from it. Proper planning and consideration will result in a stunning feature wall that elevates the entire room.
