The right feature wall wallpaper is a great way to add a pop of colour to a room or make a statement with your home decor. From floral patterns to geometric wallpaper prints, you can find a wide selection of designs in our collection to suit any style. Geometric wallpapers are a popular choice for feature walls as they can look really modern depending on the design and colours used. Choose something bold like the Debona Crystal Stripe Pattern Wallpaper (PS16 per roll) or go for a more subtle design such as the Arthouse New York Geo Pastel Contemporary Wallpaper (PS10 per roll). Animal print wallpaper is another classic option if you’re looking for feature wall ideas. Add a stylish touch to your living room with the Rasch Portfolio Peacock Wallpaper (PS12 per roll), or create a traditional look with the A.S Creation Michalsky Wallpaper (PS17 per roll).
If you’re thinking of using wallpaper to create a feature wall, it’s important to decide where the wall will be located in the room. Ideally, you want to choose a wall that will be visible from most of the room and will therefore catch people’s attention as they walk around the space. You should try to avoid walls with slopes or curves, as this can cause the wallpaper to lose its impact.
Another consideration when choosing a feature wall is the surrounding furnishings. It’s important that the furniture in the room complements the wallpaper, so you should try to match the colour of the furniture with the colour of the wallpaper if possible. If you can’t match the colour, try to use a similar shade, as this will help the room to feel balanced and harmonious.
Once you’ve chosen where you want your feature wall, it’s time to start getting ready to hang it. The first step is to prepare the wall by sanding it down and making sure there are no cracks or gaps. It’s also a good idea to apply a layer of lining paper, as this will help the wallpaper to adhere well and give it a professional finish.
Next, you’ll need to measure the height and width of your feature wall so that you can buy enough wallpaper to cover it. When you’re measuring, don’t forget to allow a few extra inches for overlap, especially at the corners. Once you’ve got your measurements, purchase your wallpaper and get ready to paste.
Creating a feature wall isn’t as daunting as it might sound, so don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles and finishes. You can also ask a specialist to hang your wallpaper for an even more professional finish.
Once your feature wall is complete, it’s time to decorate the rest of the room. Be careful when decorating around your wallpaper, as it’s easy to accidentally spoil the design with a stray paint stroke. If you need to paint around your feature wall, then we recommend covering it with a sheet or at least masking the edges of the wallpaper so that you don’t spoil the effect that you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
