Do you have walls at home that are clad in timber, such as cedar, and are wanting to freshen-up the look? Then, a lick of paint can go a long way. Not only is it cost effective - it will save you time as no need to remove the timber, re-plaster then paint with an undercoat and top coat. Furthermore, you keep the wonderful texture and repetitive line of the timber walls.
Painted Timber or Plaster Mouldings
If you're wanting to achieve a more subtle textured feature wall, then using timber or plaster mouldings to create pattern and depth is a stylish option. Common patterns are rectangles and squares and can be made more ornate depending on the profile of the moulding. The timber or plaster moulding can be painted the same colour as the walls or, if you're wanting more of an impact, then a achromatic scheme (black and white) or two colour combination really creates a design statement.
Textured Seagrass/Jute Wallpaper
The classic textured seagrass, or jute, wallpaper has made a big come back thanks to the contestants on this seasons The Block. Available in a range of colours from natural seagrass to dyed indigo blue, seagrass wallpaper is the perfect application for those wanting to achieve a luxe, intimate feeling room.
Reclaimed Brick Look Wallpaper/ Reclaimed Bricks
Particularly suited to an interior that is focusing on an industrial, or organic eclectic style, exposed brickwork is the ideal solution. Not too keen on creating the bricks and mortar wall yourself or, scraping back the paintwork or, do you live in a rental? No problems, digital removable brickwork pattern wallpaper is a very effective application. You can choose from a traditional brick colour or, go for something more mild like white bricks.
Decorative Glass/Semi Precious Stone Wall Panels
Decorative glass and semi precious wall panels are a wonderful feature wall as not only can they be customised to size, they also come in a variety of colours and patterns. Decorative glass panels also help create movement and interest to a wall due to their reflective surface. They look like stunning artwork on your walls. We particularly love these panels for bathrooms, powder rooms and as a statement feature wall in the homes entrance.
Rustic Timber Look Wallpaper
Rustic timber look wallpaper brings instant character to an interior and really helps make a feature of your wall. Be it more of a distressed look with paint markings or, the aged grayness of a beach weatherboard, this is a textured trend that's not disappearing anytime soon. Not feeling adventurous enough to clad an entire wall? Well, this looks amazing as a bedhead and really helps focus on that space.
Whatever your textured wall choice, we hope that these seven ideas have given you some new thoughts and that you're feeling inspired to create your perfect feature wall for your home.
