A feature wall can be a fantastic addition to any upscale hotel room, trendy restaurant or modern office lobby that wants to make a visual impact without overwhelming the senses. Because feature walls are often limited to just one wall, it allows designers to take more creative risks with color and texture in commercial wallcoverings without going too far.
When choosing a commercial wallpaper for a feature or accent wall, there are a few parameters you should consider before making your final choice:
- Wall Selection
How bright do you want the wallpaper to be? Will the color-tone of your feature wall add to the rest of your designed space? How will the pattern and texture add to your desired design outcome? Which wall would you choose to ensure your accent wall gets noticed?
After careful consideration and confidence in each of these design parameters, you can make the right choice in choosing a space-defining wallpaper to accomplish the design objective you’re looking to achieve. Here is a list of some of the best commercial wallcoverings brands and designs that would make great feature wall choices:
