Think of feature walls and what springs to mind? One wall of wallpaper and another three walls painted? A winning formula, I agree, but there’s so much more you can do if you let your imagination go, whether in the kitchen or dining area. I’ve got these clever suggestions for you – let me know which is your personal favourite.
A wall mural is a great way to enliven walls and can be personal to you, whether it’s a still-life (like this rose design) or a family portrait or landscape. Allposters.co.uk offers a photographic mural service.
Incorporating alcoves into your design makes a change from the usual wall-hung shelves and will add interest to your room. Go for one large one or three symmetrical shapes (as shown in this urban kitchen above). Why not paint them a different colour or tile them to make them really stand out?
Taking your walls back to bare brick will give your kitchen a rustic look and, whether you choose to paint them or leave them exposed, it makes an eye-catching feature.
