Walls are demanding a lot of attention lately. Design is getting away from four white walls in favor of colors, wallpaper and tile for the walls. Or in this case, one wall. One feature wall that commands and centers the room. What better place to feature a wall than in the bedroom?

From master bedroom to the nursery, these feature wall design ideas will make your bedroom a place that creates that pampered feel you deserve.

Headboard Accent

The most logical place to start is on the wall behind the bed, especially if you have a headboard. A splash of contrast or an interesting color that coordinates with the headboard turns the bedroom into a high-design space.

It’s the best place to build your feature wall because you are already drawing attention to it with the bed and headboard. A feature wall elsewhere might compete and make the room feel off-balance. If you don’t have a headboard, the feature wall can easily take its place.


Geometric patterns are hot right now and they are a perfect fit for a bedroom feature wall. Whether you choose wallpaper, a geometrically textured tile or a stunning mosaic, clean-lined patterns will set your feature wall apart.

Consider metallic colors for your geometric pattern. They add dimension and modernity to your already contemporary or retro design.

Stone offers you several options for an eye-catching bedroom feature wall. Go with a smooth, polished marble-look in a large size for whole wall coverage. Or try a split-face travertine for rustic texture. Either way, stone has inherent design that’s well suited for feature walls.

A luxurious book-matched stone slab is about as elegant as it gets for a feature wall. Two slabs set together that mirror image each other need no other embellishment.

Wood Pallet

Wood planks on the wall, especially pallet style are everywhere. But the reclaimed-wood look can be hard to get. Thanks to advanced technology, now you can get the look of expensive wide-plank wood in tile. It comes in traditional, authentic looks or rustic, reclaimed.

Have some fun with your plank wall by arranging it in a different pattern. Horizontal staggered is the traditional take on the plank wall, but vertical can be interesting too. Interspersing a plank and painted or wallpapered wall creates a 3D striped look. Try a herringbone pattern for the ultimate in wood patterning.


Dress up your bedroom with a feature wall that sets the tone for great design.
