The “feature wall” is becoming one of the hottest trends of 2017. If you’re looking to make a design statement in your home, consider creating a feature wall with tile. No matter which room contains a feature wall, it adds a great deal of depth to the rooms while creating an interesting focal point.
But what is a feature wall, you ask? Let us explain. A feature wall is generally one wall or a section of a wall in a room that is different from the other walls.
How to Create a Feature Wall
The feature wall gives you the opportunity to be totally creative and design “outside the box”. If you aren’t into bold designs, you can always choose to be more conservative and just select a paint color a couple of tones darker than your other walls. Generally, feature walls use a different color, size or texture that the other walls in the room.
However, since our true passion is tile and stone, we get much more excited about seeing and creating a feature wall with tile and stone. Depending on the tile you choose, you can create a subtle feature wall that is more about texture and a suggestion of pattern, or is bolder if your tile pattern exhibits a lot of shade variation. The wood-look porcelain plank tile look continues to be stronger than ever as a floor tile and as an exciting wall tile for feature walls.
Brick-look tile is also a very popular choice for a feature wall, offering an industrial look with outstanding color variations and texture. As with many of the wood-look tile collections, it’s nearly impossible to tell the difference between real brick and porcelain brick-look tile.
