7 Creative Kitchen Feature Wall Ideas and Where to Add Them

7 Creative Kitchen Feature Wall Ideas and Where to Add Them 

The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home and special attention should be given whenever a remodel or renovation is discussed. Among the ways to elevate the aesthetics and functionality of your kitchen is to incorporate a well-placed feature wall. 

There are a few strategic areas where you could add a kitchen feature wall:

Backsplash: By far the most popular option, a decorative backsplash can serve as a stunning focal point while protecting your wall from splashes and stains, fusing form with function.

Window Area: If your kitchen has a window, the wall around it can also be made into your feature wall.

Dining Nook: In smaller spaces, your kitchen can often be where you dine as well. In a strategic corner designated for the dining nook, a feature wall could make it something truly special.

Appliance Wall: Modern kitchens with built-in ovens or refrigerators can be flanked by a complementary feature wall to create a seamless look. 

Wherever you decide to add your kitchen feature wall, here are distinctive styles you can consider for your kitchen feature wall:
