Creating an eye-catching focal point in your master bedroom can be done with feature walls. A feature wall can look different for every room and every home. There are some “rules” to follow when creating an accent or feature wall, but there are also endless options to make it your own.
Below are some trending options for feature walls and how you can add your own flare to the one in your master bedroom.
What Is A Feature Wall?
A feature wall is either one or two walls in the master suite that you want to be seen as the focal point. Feature walls can be anything you want them to be, including a wall with a fireplace, a painted mural, a large picture of your family, or a well-decorated wall with some of your favorite decor. The main aspect of a feature wall is to draw people’s eyes and catch their attention.
Accent Wall Trends
Many homeowners are including accent walls in multiple spaces in their homes. Accent walls behind your bed or on the opposite wall can make a more visually appealing space. Here are some trending features or accent walls in 2023.
Vintage Brick: A faux brick wall is super trendy in homes in 2023. Whether it is exposed natural brick, stenciled on, or a fake brick texture, there are many ways to achieve this look. For a bedroom, white or gray painted brick is a cleaner way to go that feels natural and relaxing.
DIY Shiplap: Shiplap walls are all the rage in home design. Shiplap is fairly easy to implement and comes in many variations. Shiplap can be painted after it is installed as well if you don’t like the original color.
Grid Panels: These grid panels can be made with simple wood pieces laid to make symmetrical squares and then painted over. Paint colors like green, blue, beige, or white will make your bedroom stand out while creating a relaxing atmosphere.
Painted Arches: Boho arches are popular painted elements to include on feature walls. You can include multiple arches of varying sizes or one arch over the bed. Painting an arch with a perfect curve can be challenging, but if you get it right, this accent will be a stunning addition to any room.
Board And Batten: Board and batten have been popular for many years and can be designed to your unique specifications. Including this feature wall will add depth and texture to an otherwise plain room. It is easy to customize this option to fit your space.
Painted Mural: If you have a creative side, painting a scene or a pattern is a great way to elevate your master suite. This can be a way to showcase your skills and personality in a room that you spend a lot of time in. Painted murals and accent walls can be any color, any design, or as big as you want them to be. The options are endless.
What Art Should I Include On My Feature Walls?
On top of paint and design, many people include art or wall decor on their feature walls. Using odd numbers of pieces is a good rule of thumb for making the wall visually appealing. 3 and 5 are usually magic numbers when it comes to interior decorating. Art pieces should match or make the design of your room feel cohesive.
Many feature walls in master bedrooms include family or wedding photos, quotes, or hanging fake plants. Sconces are also a popular and functional inclusion above your bed or side tables.
If your feature wall is going behind your bed, implementing a decorative headboard can add to the overall look. You will also want to measure to ensure that your headboard is centered on the wall and doesn’t take over the look of the accent wall. Headboards that stray away from the traditional rectangular shape will also make your feature wall stand out.
