Feature or accent walls are regarded as one of the best tricks that can be used to personalise and style your home. Indeed, if you want to spice up your new home, you should consider saving a wall for decoration. Whether you add colour or simply place materials on the wall, the main aim is to create a statement through design and creativity. What’s more, there is no limitation to the amount of colour, design, or the extent of creativity you can incorporate on your wall.
You can choose any of your walls as your feature wall, but it is best to select the one that catches your eye naturally when you walk into the room. Alternatively, the one that is directly opposite your window and receives the most natural light can also be a great option. So, now that you have chosen your ideal feature wall, how do you spice it up? We have rounded up several inexpensive ways to help you create a feature wall that will perfectly match with your home décor.
Below are several inexpensive ways to generate high impact feature walls.
If you live in a rental house, this is perhaps your best option; prints of removable wallpapers come in various shades and textures. You can easily remove them and add a more up to date print anytime you wish. However, a tip to installing prints is that you should use at least one colour and match it with your home décor for uniformity or to create a cohesive story. Additionally, you should consider mounting wallpaper prints that will bring the best out of your wall. You can remain trendy by checking out the latest designs on the Internet. For example, exposed brick is a popular choice to have internally; why not consider an exposed brick print in your home rather than the real thing?
