How to Create Fab Feature Walls with Porcelain Tiles

Whether you want to showcase an architectural feature in your home, separate a large space with a feature partition wall or boost visual interest in line with the hottest interior design trends, there are various ways to create a feature wall with striking wall paper, bold paint or stunning tiles. Here, Porcel-Thin considers how you can make a statement in your living space with our revolutionary ultra-thin porcelain tiles.

Maximise your space

When looking to add some oomph to a nook or create zones in a grander room, make sure you choose the porcelain tiles that make the most of your space. For small spaces such as en suite bathrooms and under-stair work stations, glossy, mirrored and metallic tiles such as those from our Lisbon collection are perfect to reflect natural light and give the illusion of space.

Also, the addition of a feature area does not have to mean making changes to an entire structural wall – think eye-catching yet functional splashbacks in kitchens and wetrooms. With that in mind, consider stretching those limits and going a bit off-the-wall. How about a feature wall that extends to part of the ceiling or links up with matching floor tiles for a sophisticated seamless finish?

Theme your interior style

When choosing something with a strong pattern or colour, always remember that “less is more” so as not to overwhelm smaller spaces or create an interior design induced headache! To make a feature wall really sing, make sure you pick out key colours or textures when accessorising and choosing the fixtures and fittings for the rest of the room.

Thematic possibilities are endless:  you could use nature to inspire your bathroom design, create a narrative with colour, set aside a study zone, conjure up a zen space, create a mood with photo tiles or make your lounge a living artwork. Whatever your dream theme, Porcel-Thin has porcelain tiles to suit your interior styling.

Embrace a sense of creativity

Do not be afraid to take the plunge with a contrasting colour or texture in order to achieve the look you want.  You could make your space stand out by creating a feature wall using this year’s Mediterranean inspired colour scheme or go all-out on jewel tones – always think about the feeling you are looking to evoke, whether its tranquillity or opulence . But be sure to strike a balance between bold and brash so you create a zing that makes your space stand out from the crowd but also draws guests in.

When it comes to texture, you do not have to clad your wall in natural stone or wood to make a style statement. With Porcel-Thin, you get the added benefits of our light, ultra-thin tiles that are long-lasting and easy to maintain along with the beautiful effect of natural stone and wood. Whether you want the silvery tones of our Pattaya Rice White or Light tiles to highlight a shabby-chic room or the marbleous brilliance of our Book Match marble effect tiles for an all-out lux look, our large-format tiles take the fuss out of a feature wall in more ways than one. There are fewer lines to break up a continuous pattern, texture or image and the larger tiles are quicker and easier to install – feature walls for the win!
