At MCS Carpets & Wood Flooring, we strive to offer our customer products and services that can completely transform their house. One way we do this is through our laminate feature walls. We can take any laminate flooring and turn it into a wall.
With so many colours, design, and patterns available, laminate feature walls are a great way to create a unique look and feature in your home. Whether you are moving into a new home or looking to renovate your current living space, feature walls in laminate is one of the best ways to spruce and liven up any room. Feature walls are getting increasingly popular today and it is no wonder! A feature wall provides you with a great opportunity to experiment with different colours, patterns and textures. This allows you to not only highlight a certain aspect of the room but also change the mood as well. While you can create a high impact feature wall that will get people talking, sometimes a subtle pattern and mixture of colours could also create a similar transformation without overwhelming the senses.

Five Things to Remember for Creating Your Perfect Feature Wall
1) Select a spacious room for your feature wall
The first step is to ensure the room you are selecting for that feature wall isn’t over-crowded. A living space where too much is going on can easily overwhelm the eyes and create a sense of chaos which is exactly what you don’t want from your feature wall.
A feature wall works much better in a spacious living room compared to a smaller crowded study room filled with bookshelves, cupboards, and desks.
2) Choosing the right wall is equally as important
Now that you have selected the room for your feature wall, the next step would be to decide which specific wall to transform. A common mistake is to select a random wall. While a wall might be the widest, that doesn’t make it the best candidate to be transformed. You would ideally choose a wall that highlights the room’s existing focal point.
For example, in the living room, the wall where the TV is and where the sofas face is a prime choice to become your feature wall. In a room, your eyes should be drawn to one spot.
3) Allow your feature wall to complement your room colours
While you might be tempted to utilise a big colour contrast for your feature wall, for a timeless look consider the colours of the surroundings and let your feature wall complement these. By taking into consideration the colours of furniture, existing flooring, and wall colours you can then cleverly select the colour of your feature wall.
In a room that has tones of white, grey, and beige you could select a darker wooden colour for your feature wall to add contrast and give it a natural feel to the living space.
4) Use patterns to create an incredible visual feature wall
Colour contrast feature walls aren’t the only direction you can go in for high impact. Another great way is to allow the colour of your feature wall to blend in with the rest of the room but use wonderful and intricate patterns to create an incredible visual focal point. This has an additional benefit of creating colour harmony in your living space while sprucing it up.
5) Be bold and edgy with your feature wall
Sometimes taking contrast and patterns to the extreme could produce wonderful results that are not just beautiful but iconic as well. The beauty of a feature wall is not just the colours and patterns that are selected, but the wall itself could be turned into a work of art that allows it to look three-dimensional.
This kind of edgy feature wall works best in a room that is spacious and simple without being too big. The key is to ensure the wall is a focal point that doesn’t overwhelm or distract from the other beautiful aspects of the room.
