The KBB Ark edit: 12 feature wall ideas to consider for your home
Make a statement in your home by combining a wow-worthy layout with a single statement wall

The wall: tile like you mean it An impressive contrast of two different types of tile makes for a shimmering place for us to kick-start our round-up.
This iridescent purple wall provides an impressive focal point in an otherwise sleek, hotel-style bathroom. It's not just a colour contrast; the difference between the sizes of the larger squares and the smaller mosaic-style tiles is equally as eye-catching.
The wall: abstract art attack An all-grey kitchen is given an extra dose of style thanks to the addition of this rainbow-bright wall; as much a work of art as it is an interiors style statement, it's a delightfully 'cool' way to keep the look on its toes.
The wall: mural magic We love this idea! A spectacular painted mural makes for a bespoke décor option that's wow-worthy and utterly unique to boot, too.
The wall: striking shapes Another take on the mural idea: use washi or masking tape to help you create graphic blocks of colour in unexpected shapes and sizes.
The wall: faux texture A stretch of exposed brickwork or simply a sheet of look-a-like wallpaper? That's a secret we'll never tell...
The wall: bathing back-drop For the ultimate in tub-time decadence, consider picking an accent wall that will transport you somewhere else entirely. As well as playing an essential part in the relaxation process, it will also draw attention to your bath as a focal area in the room, too.
The wall: touch-me texture Part optical illusion, part statement installation and all achingly cool, this tile idea offers a fantastic way to add extra interest to an otherwise serene space.
The wall: simple drama A simple twist of lighter colour adds a seriously dramatic finish to this navy wall. It's a low-effort idea that offers an incredibly high-impact finish to the wall, transforming it from beautiful-but-neutral to effortlessly impressive.
The wall: perfectly patterned A strong burst of pattern adds a distinct pop of carefully-chosen style to this striking open-plan kitchen-diner space. Strong geometric shapes, combined with a palette of grey and charcoal, keeps the look carefully stylish, as well as utterly attention-grabbing.
The wall: tapestry throwback For a decorative bedroom detail that looks as if it's fallen straight out of the Game of Thrones props cupboard, look no further than a beautiful tapestry (if you're feeling #extra) or a statement wall hanging, perfect for suspending above your bed.
If you love the idea but aren't sure you want the expense, consider, instead, a wallpaper adorned with a tapestry. (The National Gallery, for example, have a range of wallpapers inspired by classical works of art.)
The wall: book club Naturally an accent wall doesn't limit you purely to flat decorations: wallpaper, tiles and so on are all well and good, but don't overlook the possibility of something a little more 3D.
Consider, for example, a sweeping display of shelves, which, filled with books or ornaments or whatever, can make a just-as-impressive feature wall option.
The wall: perfectly painted Okay - we can only see a glimpse of this impeccably adorned wall but gosh - what a glimpse it is! Essential for setting the exotic feel in the room, this is a feature wall that sits at the heart of the space's decorative aesthetic, both setting the scene and stealing the show.
