How to Make an Amazing Feature Wall

Creating feature walls is an ancient interior design technique used to create depth and contrast in a room's aesthetic. There are many ways to make an amazing feature wall in any room of your home or business.

Read on to discover some effective ways you can make an eye-popping feature wall at home and learn why more people are coming to our AJ Wallpaper online store for quality feature wall solutions.

Colour contrast

One of the most simple and popular ways to create a feature wall is by choosing a contrasting colour on a single wall, like behind a bed head or a living room wall, usually the most focal wall of the room.

Examples of contrast could be 

  • A black wall in a white room
  • A navy blue wall with a yellow-themed room
  • Lavender and teal contrasts, or 
  • Any complementary but contrasting dark and light colour

The idea is to make the feature wall stand out as a statement. Often the feature wall frames a central feature, like a TV, audio system or bookshelf, with complementary decor features placed strategically throughout the room.


You can use texture to create a feature wall in many ways, like pairing rough textures with smooth or busy effects next to uniform finishes. Some examples of what can be used for a textured feature wall include:

  • Paint splatters
  • Wooden panels
  • Embossed finished
  • Tile work, like a mosaic
  • Natural stone
  • Metallic finishes
  • Dots and lines
  • Geometric patterns
  • Smooth or rough brickwork
  • and more

Our AJ Wallpaper catalogue has a wide array of textured wallpaper options, including realistic 3D wallpaper designs that feature high-definition finishes that need to be seen to be believed. 

Our textured wallpaper designs are self-adhesive and easy to install, so why not check out our selection today? You'll have your dream feature wall installed in next to no time.

Photographic and art feature walls

Another way to create an incredible feature wall is by using large photographic prints or pieces of wall art to define a single wall in a room. 

While you can spend big dollars on custom art murals or expensive art instalments, a good alternative, and one of the most affordable and effective solutions, is using a photographic or artistic feature wallpaper for a feature wall.

Removable wallpaper allows for large-scale, ultra-high-definition images, like art prints and photographs, to be printed onto self-adhesive wallpaper that you can use to feature pictures like:

  • Classic art
  • Abstract and surrealist art
  • Photographic landscapes
  • Ocean scenery
  • Mountain scenery
  • Flora and fauna
  • Famous art and photography
  • and much more
