When you think of a room inside a house, you probably envision four similar walls. This can work in some spaces, but today’s tastes demand more variety and visual appeal. That’s where the feature wall comes in. This structure can completely transform your favourite room and enhance the atmosphere in your living space.
Feature Wall Basics
A feature wall is used to add interest to an indoor area. It consists of a wall that varies in pattern, colour, or construction. Some feature walls are painted or wallpapered differently than the rest of the room. This could be a section of one wall or the entire length. Brick is an attractive choice that will bring character to any space.
What Should I Use to Build My Feature Wall?
We offer two very distinct brick styles that are perfect for feature wall construction projects. Each is made of high-quality materials and come in different colours, so you have more options.
- Breeze Blocks by Austral Masonry
Breeze Blocks by Austral Masonry feature a contemporary style that is eye-catching. They are resistant to rot, corrosion, and termites. They are also low maintenance. Once they are installed, you won’t have to do anything to keep them looking beautiful.
Two designs are currently offered by Austral, including wedge and diamond patterns. Builders can use one design or both together in the same project. Eco-friendly households will appreciate the recycle-ability of Breeze Blocks. This line favours cooler tones in light to dark shades. For something bolder, consider Pewter or Nickel. If you want a lighter or softer look, Porcelain may be a better choice.
- Cultured Stone by PGH Bricks and Pavers
PGH Bricks’ Cultured Stone collection offers a different look that’s affordable and lightweight. No sealing, coating, or painting is required, making this another low-maintenance feature wall option. From modern to rustic, Cultured Stone has something for every home décor style.
Pro-Fit Modera Ledgestone is a great contemporary choice with bold lines. The narrow face of each block extends from the wall to different heights, adding handsome shadows and highlights. Choose from Carbon, Intaglio, or Vellum.
Dressed Fieldstone is another addition to PGH Bricks’ collection. This line is reminiscent of country paths paved in natural stone. It is rugged looking stone cladding with rich variation in shape and size. Choose from Aspen, Echo Ridge, Bucks County, Chardonnay, and Palisades.
