A feature wall is great way to add some interest and personality to your home. You can really add some value to your house and if done properly it will really emphasize the charm of your home. Its can be harder than you think but if you follow these points it will be a lot easier.

What is the first step to painting a feature wall?

It may sound silly but the first thing is to think about the colour you want to use and the wall you want to paint. Remember that a feature wall is exactly that a “feature Wall” try to choose that wall that doesn’t have a large door or window. Think about the colour you want, certain colours may make your room seem smaller than it actually is. Try to imagine the room after you have finished painting, what pictures, painting’s or art pieces will you have on the wall when you finish. What furniture will go in the room.

What is the Second step to painting a feature wall?

Once you choose the wall and have an idea for a colour. I recommend you go to your local Hardware or Paint Store and get some samples pots or colour charts. I strongly recommend you do this. This is extra step could some you some heart break and $. Nothing worse than starting and getting half way through and realise its not what you wanted.

What is the Third step to painting a feature wall?

It is time to start painting. I recommend the following steps:

  1. Open any windows in the room to improve ventilation and drying time.
  2. Prepare your wall, clean and fill in any holes or cracks before painting.
  3. Place drop cloths on floors and on any furnishings that can’t be removed from the room.
  4. Apply painter’s masking tape to fittings and any trim edges which may be fiddly and difficult to paint around.
  5. Paint from top down.
  6. Allow adequate drying time for all surfaces between coats.
  7. Clean up
  8. Enjoy your hard work
