Make a statement with bold colours

Making a bold statement has never been easier than with a great accent wall that uses vibrant colours to add character and style to your room. Imagine walking into your bathroom and the warmth and cosiness that warm orange tones can bring to a space, along with an association with optimism and creativity. Or perhaps the understated elegance of teal, with its sense of glamour and tranquil, balanced feel, might be more your style.

For those seeking a trendy and lively choice, green can bring a burst of energy to your room, especially when balanced with bright white for a crisp contrast. And let’s not forget the invigorating and feminine feel that coral shades can create, perfect for lively social spaces that complement your overall design scheme.

Opt for geometric designs

If bold colours aren’t quite your thing, why not consider another design element to make your feature wall stand out? Geometric designs can bring a contemporary flair to any room, adding movement and creating a stunning visual interest.

A tiled accent wall adorned with geometric patterns can make a dramatic statement for a feature wall. These wall design options can range from simple stripes and squares to complex tessellations. The geometric trend is about bold, graphic designs that can be used to create a stunning focal point in your room. One accent wall idea to consider is experimenting with various geometric patterns to find the perfect wall design for your space. This could include creating accent walls, wall panelling, and even wall panels.

Incorporating geometric designs into your feature wall allows you to play with shapes and symmetry, adding depth and dimension to your wall. This can be particularly effective in a minimalist design scheme where the geometric pattern can take centre stage.

Moreover, geometric designs aren’t just for the bold and the brave. They can be incorporated subtly into your home’s interior design. For example, you could opt for a monochrome palette, which will allow the shapes and patterns to shine without overwhelming the room.

Last but not least, a feature wall with geometric designs can visually expand a small space. The eye is naturally drawn to patterns, and a well-designed geometric feature wall can make a room appear larger than it is.

Creating a tiled feature wall can be a rewarding project and, with the right tools and tips, it’s something you could tackle on your own. If not, then call in a professional tiling expert who can creature your feature wall for you.

When planning a DIY accent wall, consider using tiles in various shades of the same colour for a sophisticated design. Timeless materials like marble, stone, or wood finishes can add a touch of elegance to your feature wall.

Before you start, experiment with tile samples to decide on the best colours, textures, and layout for your feature wall. And don’t be afraid to mix and match! Different types of tiles, such as large formats with mosaic accents, can create an elegant feature wall. Interesting shapes or patterns like herringbone or chevron offer a subtler approach.

Keep in mind that tiling can get messy, so prepare your room with plastic sheeting to protect the surrounding area from dust and debris. And remember, tiles aren’t just for bathrooms! They can be used to create a striking feature wall in any room, even to define separate areas in larger spaces.

Experiment with wall murals

If you’re looking for a way to inject more of your personality into your space, wall murals are an excellent choice. These offer a wide array of designs and can be custom printed to align with your personal style preferences, making them an excellent choice for creating a unique feature wall.

The wonderful thing about wall murals is that they can be as subtle or as bold as you like. You could opt for a simple, understated design that adds a touch of elegance to your room or go all out with a vibrant, eye-catching mural that transforms your wall into a work of art.

One of the biggest interior design trends for 2024 is bold statements made by large-scale prints and murals. An interior designer might suggest using a floor-to-ceiling mural or large-scale wallpaper for creating a living room with a ‘wow’ factor on the living room wall.

Besides being stylish, wall murals are also practical. And because they can be custom printed, you can create a design that perfectly matches your style and the rest of your decor.

So whether you’re a fan of abstract art, nature scenes, cityscapes, or anything in between, there’s a wall mural out there that’s perfect for you and can even be a part of your gallery wall, complementing your existing wall art.

Consider floor-to-ceiling features

As you explore different wall ideas to create a feature wall, consider going big and extending your design from floor to ceiling. This approach can create a bold, seamless look, emphasising interior continuity and style.

Vertical stripes on a feature wall, for instance, can create the illusion of height, making rooms appear taller and ceilings higher. Choosing a wall without interruptions such as doors or windows is best for a floor-to-ceiling feature wall to become the focal point.

Using light-coloured, larger tiles with a contrasting tile design on the feature wall can help small rooms feel more expansive. The continuity of the design or material from the floor to the ceiling can create a stunning visual impact, transforming your space into a stylish living area with well-placed wall lights.

In essence, a floor-to-ceiling feature wall is a bold and innovative way to add depth and character to your room. It’s a design choice that can truly elevate your home.

Accent wall ideas

Creating a tiled feature wall is a dynamic way to add character and style to your home. Whether you opt for bold colours, geometric designs, DIY tiling, wall murals, or floor-to-ceiling features, the possibilities are endless. The key is to choose a design that reflects your personal style and complements your home’s overall decor. So why not take the plunge and transform a plain wall into a stunning focal point?
