Below are some cheap feature wall ideas that will suit most homes. If you have a good imagination, you can achieve a lot on a tight budget.
1. Paint your Walls
The cheapest and most common way to create a feature wall is to use paint. Usually the painted feature wall will be a different colour contrast to the other walls. Or you could simply choose a bold colour for the whole room that stands out, such as light green or turquoise. When you use bold colours, it makes objects such as radiators stand out too. So you could buy a designer radiator like in the second image below, so it also acts as a feature.
2. Add Glitter to your Paint
You can make your painted feature wall more interesting by adding a sparkle to it. Such as the silver glitter paint additive below from Amazon. Look at the black feature wall below, this additive was added to the black paint. It does not show it well in the image, but it really does sparkle as you see the wall from different perspectives. However, we do recommended adding more glitter than the product recommends.
3. Use Stencils
Using wall stencils can create an artistic feel in any room. You simply hold the stencil to the wall, then paint it with a different colour using a roller. Once you lift your stencil from the wall, you will see the image painted to your wall. Below is a good example of a stencil being used for a ceiling inside a bar. You can buy leaf stencils like these from the Amazon store.
4. Temporary Wallpaper
Temporary wallpapers are becoming more popular. Probably because people are wanted to redecorate more often these days. They do not require any paste or water. This means you may be more willing to take a risk on quirky patterns and colours. They are the perfect choice for you if you’re looking for a stylish look without the commitment.
