3 Best Feature Wall Ideas for Living Room

Bored of the plain empty walls? Want to make your home more lively? Then a feature wall will do magic for you. In this post, you will see the 3 best of feature wall ideas with steps to create it. This post covers three feature walls- black and white photo feature wall, geometrical feature wall, and glass feature wall. You can implement these ideas to have a beautiful home.

Black and white photo feature wall

If you are a constant reader on my blog, you must be knowing that I love photographs. You can check my post on Photograph Placement and ideas. This idea came from The Ideal room.

Create your own black and white photo wall collage feature wall:

You will need:

  • A lot of black and white photographs of your choice (you can either use your memories or any interesting theme collage will do)
  • Adhesive
  • Ruler and measuring tape
  • Markers

How to make black and white photo wall collage?

  • Measure the dimensions of the wall. You can also try implementing the collage to a portion of wall. There is a lot of scope to experiment.
  • You must be knowing the average photos required by implementing maths. Now, if you are planning on mosaic, it may be hard to calculate the exact number of photographs you will be needing, so take a bit more than average.
  • Paste the photographs side to side or in a random fashion.
  • Your black and white photo wall collage feature wall is ready!

Geometric feature wall ideas for living room

Now this is going to be colourful and eye-catchy! A perfect happy home needs colours. While a lot of colours on all walls could be an unwelcoming idea, but using colours on one feature wall supported by other plain walls could do magic. I am inspired by Elisa Rose’s post to bring colours on my feature wall.

Here’s how to make it:

You will need:

  • Frog tape or masking tape
  • Paints of your choice. I generally prefer working on a theme and same I suggest to you.
  • Paint brushes 2” wide

How to paint a geometric feature wall?

  • Remove all the adjacent furniture for space to work.
  • Form a geometric pattern by using frog tape.
  • Start painting your feature wall. However, try not to use same colours on adjacent patches.
  • And it’s ready! Remove the frog tape once the paint has dried.

Check out how to make it in detail at Elisa Rose’s post.

Feature partition glass wall

Not a usual wall but I find this idea very interesting. I found this on SG LivingPod Blog.

To create this feature wall, you will need a glass wall installed on your living room. Then you can draw patterns or paint it the desired way.
