Are you looking for that perfect style detail to give a room in your home that “wow” factor? More and more homeowners are moving away from the traditional paint coloured feature walls and moving towards a textured material selection instead for their feature walls. Using textured materials adds more of a 3 dimensional feel as well as a splash of colour, personality, and character to a room. Creating a feature wall can be as simple as adding a textured wallpaper which has become very popular again since the 80s, or selecting a material in a wood species, metal, tile, or stone to design a breathtaking creation.
From mundane to Visual Interest
A feature wall can be the cost effective solution to enhance the aesthetics of a room and dramatically change the appearance. Over the years we get tired of the same appearance of the rooms in our home and although a fresh coat of paint in a different colour can change that slightly, let’s face it, everyone wants a change. Rather than overhauling an otherwise drab room, the solution could be as easy as changing one wall. One fabulous feature wall is all it takes to spice up that room or rooms, in your home.
Speak with Prism Interiors about choosing an exposed stone wall for your home. Installing a stone wall feature running up a staircase, at the front entrance or a stone façade as a feature wall in the great room or den makes a big impact by adding a beautiful texture to an existing space. With new stone varieties, you have a wide assortment of choices on stone types, colours and textures – numerous possibilities to fit every home style. Popular materials for exposed stone feature walls include ledgestone, fieldstone, stacked stone, and brick as examples. For a budget-friendly alternative, the Client may also consider synthetic cultured stone or stone veneers instead. These alternatives look indistinguishable from natural stone and can be crafted in whatever colour or pattern your heart desires.
Decorative panels are back in a BIG way! The design options are endless with countless prints and textures, and faux finishes like concrete, stone, wood grain, brick and more. Unexpected options include 3D textured panels with a wave or pattern motif, embossed tiles, or create your own wall design using paint-grade MDF or a stain-grade wood species to accentuate the space. Talk to Prism Interiors as they can also incorporate floating bookshelves and custom cabinetry to add a multi-functional element to your living room, bedroom, or dining room feature wall.
Exotic Wood and Barn Board
Wood is an increasingly popular option bringing a natural element to any room. Create a chic, modern timber-lined wall using different exotic wood varieties like rosewood, teak, and tigerwood, or fashion a more rustic design using reclaimed barn wood or deck boards. This is a great feature to work into the master bedroom as an example by placing it behind the bed so it can act not only as a feature wall, but as a custom headboard! Incorporating multi-functionality into your design project should always be a priority.
