Make a Feature Wall, Out of Flooring
Apr 17, 2020
Looking to add a little pop of personality to your home? Try a feature wall! But, not your average feature wall. Toss the wallpaper and paint cans aside. We’re talking feature walls made out of flooring. Whether it’s a bedroom, kitchen, living room, or even a hallway, a flooring feature wall adds that extra element to make a statement in your home.
First, let’s figure out which wall to choose. The best wall to, well, feature is the first wall you see when entering the room. All eyes are drawn to that bit of depth and texture the wall conveys. Try to use a wall with no interruptions—no windows, no doors, no funky business. Bonus: a symmetrical wall—one with a uniform height and width—always works best.
Next, let’s look at the materials. Of course, natural wood is an extremely popular feature wall material. It’s visually pleasing yet practical, acting as an additional form of insulation for the room itself. What you’ll also find is that it visually enhances the size of the room, continuing the flow from floor to wall. Laminate and luxury vinyl are also great options, as they offer varying looks at affordable prices. Stone and tile allow for bold patterns that bring strength and character to any space.
Finally, let’s talk about style. Think of a style that’s fun and different. A style that really speaks to your personality. From a bold tile pattern to a warm wood tone, settle on something that feels right to you. Something timeless to keep you loving your space for years to come.
OK, well that’s a good start. But to really begin, call your local Flooring America store today. No matter your space or your vision, we can help you design a wall that truly makes it yours.
