A feature wall for almost every room in your home…

Almost every room in your home will have a feature wall within it.

As a general rule of thumb, it’s the wall that’s furthest away from you when you enter the room, and as we naturally tend to position items of visual interest or key furniture items on this wall too, inherently it naturally becomes the feature wall.

In turn this wall tends to get the most attention, both in terms of being visually the most interesting but also in terms of decoration.

In a lounge or living room, this wall might have a fireplace or television cited on it, with the main sofa or seating facing it. Equally, in a bedroom, the head of the bed is positioned against a wall, which may be accompanied by bedside lights and so it automatically becomes the focal point of the room.

Red Rock Grey, a finish from our Reclaimed range was used for both visual impact and also to unite the bedroom and en-suite together. The home owners had specifically chosen this finish, as it combines an array of wood tones with flashes of intense grey shades, so they could co-ordinate the neutral scheme in their bedroom with the grey furniture in their en-suite.

Rocky Mountain Grey, also from our Reclaimed range has been used in two very different ways.

The first installation shows how ‘less is more’ with a simple panel fitted in wooden wall panelling to add interest to an otherwise fairly plain white bathroom.

The owner of the second home certainly ‘rocks’ retro style! With eclectic, key pieces of furniture including an old school desk and seat, the wall was also deserving of a retro treatment, so what could be better than a 21stcentury solution to ‘70’s wall panelling?

Culebra Peak White is the perfect choice where a feature wall is larger than usual.

Whilst the majority of us can only dream of living in an open plan, double height room, Culebra Peak White provided the perfect backdrop for this large expanse of wall in this stunning American home, allowing it to feel homely and with a ‘lived in’ and welcoming feeling.

Equally, it was the perfect backdrop for this feature wall where anything with too much colour or pattern would have simply dominated the subtle sofa and chair.

Piz Bernina Pine adds warmth to any room and was used to great effect in this industrial open plan living space, complete with bedroom to provide a clear divide between the areas.

It was also used as a feature wall in this kitchen, where cream Shaker units with timber worksurfaces were further enhanced by a wall of wooden panelling to add alluring charm.

So whether you’re looking to create a feature wall in your bedroom, bathroom, kitchen or living room, consider PLAANK as the stylish alternative to characterless paint!
