Feature walls are back with impact. Moving on from the simple effects of wallpaper and paint, designers are thinking outside the box and using different materials to add colour and texture to create real wow factor in interior spaces.
Tiles are a great way to make a statement and bring character to a room. Typically seen in the bathroom and kitchen, but a tiled chimney breast in a living room or a tiled headboard in a bedroom is a much more adventurous use and adds interest with a dramatic focal point.
The splash back tiles on this kitchen wall is a fun way to add colour and pattern. Also, placing vertically instead of horizontally is a refreshing alternative. This design would make even more of a statement if used in a living or dining space.
Combining multiple materials is another way to personalise a wall, or in this case, a floor. The zig zag design works well to divide up the space and zone areas. With open-plan living this would also work on walls to separate and outline the different spaces.
A luxurious Grecian them has been achieved in this spacious bathroom with an impactful mosaic which looks like a huge marble sculpture from a distance.
For those with a passion for plants, why not bring the outside into the home with a vertical garden or living wall? Used here in a concrete wet room, it adds a vibrant jungle feel to the space.
