Feature walls are back with impact. Moving on from the simple
effects of wallpaper and paint, designers are thinking outside the box and
using different materials to add colour and texture to create real wow factor
in interior spaces.
Tiles are a great way to make a statement and bring character to a
room. Typically seen in the bathroom and kitchen, but a tiled chimney breast in
a living room or a tiled headboard in a bedroom is a much more adventurous use
and adds interest with a dramatic focal point.
back tiles on this kitchen wall is a fun way to add colour and pattern. Also,
placing vertically instead of horizontally is a refreshing alternative. This
design would make even more of a statement if used in a living or dining space.
Combining multiple materials is another way to personalise a wall,
or in this case, a floor. The zig zag design works well to divide up the space
and zone areas. With open-plan living this would also work on walls to separate
and outline the different spaces.
A luxurious Grecian them has been achieved in this spacious
bathroom with an impactful mosaic which looks like a huge marble sculpture from
For those with a passion for plants, why not bring the outside
into the home with a vertical garden or living wall? Used here in a concrete wet room, it adds a
vibrant jungle feel to the space.

Statement islands will feature heavily in 2017, this is supported by
worktop technologies and the wide array of new worktop finishes entering
the market. Mixing is the name of the game: texture, thickness, height
and colour - anything goes. Open storage features are also a must in
your island design, stretch your creativity but keep it practical.
Use product creatively
A split level island is a clever way to reduce the appearance of bulk
without reducing worktop space. It’s also a nice way of softening the
transition from kitchen to a dining/living space.
Get creative with lighting and give your island that flouting feeling,
here we’ve paired it with a universal sliding doors system that adds
real drama as well as creative display.
Mixing Worktop textures create a real statement contrasting not only
finishes but thinness too, complimenting display features and
splashbacks both play a big part in this look.
Make a feature with contrasting kitchen fascias, you need to be bold to
make a statement it’s not the time to play safe…sometime more is more!
