Textured treatments

Elevate your feature wall with textured finishes. The world is your oyster here, but we love things like exposed brick, reclaimed wood panels, or decorative wall tiles.


Each of these are perfect ways to add more depth and dimension to your space. Textured walls create visual interest and tactile appeal, making them a captivating focal point in any room.

Vibrant paint

Add a burst of colour to your living room with a vibrant paint hue. Go with bold shades like teal, mustard, or coral to create a striking focal point that’s sure to get your guests talking.


Paint one wall in a standout colour and keep the rest of the room neutral to let your feature wall take centre stage.

Wonderful wallpaper

Embrace the power of pattern with wallpaper. From eye catching geometric prints to intricate floral motifs, wallpaper offers endless design possibilities.


Be sure to choose a bold wallpaper design to make a true style statement. Not your thing? No problem. You can always opt for a more subtle texture for an elegant and understated look.

Gallery wall display

Showcase your personality and interests with a gallery wall display. Mix and match framed artwork, photographs, and decorative objects to create a visually dynamic feature wall.


Play with different sizes, shapes, and arrangements to curate a gallery wall that reflects your unique style. Besides looking great, it’ll be an excellent conversation starter.

Start shelving

Turn your feature wall into a functional focal point with stylish shelving units. Install floating shelves or built-in bookcases to display books, artwork, and cherished collectibles.


Not only do shelving units add visual interest to your wall, but they also provide valuable storage space for your living room essentials.
