A quality feature wall enhances any room. From the kitchen and bathroom to the bedroom and living room, feature walls balance the functionality of tying a room together while also making its space stand out.

Whether you’re hiring professional house painters in Melbourne or wanting to try DIY plastering, here are some simple do’s and don’ts you should follow:

Do choose the right wall

Not every wall in your room can be used as a feature wall. There are many factors that come into play when finding the right wall to highlight. Your local house painter or plasterer in Melbourne can help you identify the exact wall to feature. In any given room there would already be an existing focal point. It could be the wall behind the TV in the living room or the wall behind the headboard. It all depends on the architecture of your room and how the main furniture is spread out.

Don’t use a feature wall for just experimenting

When deciding the interior design for the entire house, you have to keep longevity in mind. Having a timeless or at least long-term layout plan saves you from having to constantly renovate your home. However, this shouldn’t mean your feature wall ends up being a canvas for trial and errors. Make sure when you can also commit to your feature wall rather than waste time or money dismantling it as soon as it’s put up.

Do ensure it complements the rest of the room

Your feature wall is definitely a creative space to express what suits your taste. But it should at least make sense in the room. Find the right contrast of colours or a pattern that suits the atmosphere of your room rather than going bright and bold just for the sake of it. An out of place feature wall can hinder the space rather than enhance its ambience and look.

Don’t limit yourself to paint and wallpaper

There’s more to feature walls than just making space a different colour or wallpaper to the rest of the room. Different textures can add more depth to space. You can also craft beautiful feature walls by simply using different materials like tile, stone and reclaimed wood.
