8 Stylish Teal Feature Wall Ideas

Darker hues are renowned for their ability to create a sophisticated and impactful statement in a room. Regal, mysterious and relaxing, shades of teal are an excellent option when transforming a dull and dreary room that needs some character. 

While the thought of painting all four walls of a room dark blue might seem intimidating, a teal feature wall in the bedroom, living room, kitchen or dining room can make a huge impact and immediately inject some personality into your home, regardless of the size of the space you’re working with,

Read on for eight ways to incorporate a teal feature wall into your home.


#1 Atmospheric living rooms 

Paint colours can have a big impact on the atmosphere of a room. As a space you go to decompress after a long day, it’s essential that your living room is serene and calming. Create this atmosphere by painting a feature wall in a warming and energising tone like Teal Touch. Pair it with warm wood furnishings and soft, plush touches like throws and cushions in peacock hues.

#2 Creative kitchens

When it comes to kitchens, darker colours are hugely underrated and can make the space look far more lavish. Getting the lighting right is essential for this look, so be sure to pick a light-facing wall as your feature wall to avoid making the room seem smaller. For an elegant and enticing feel, opt for classic blue paint in a rich tone like Breton Blue, complemented with sleek silver and brushed chrome accessories for elements like fridges, taps and your hob.

#3 Decadent dining rooms

Get yourself and your guests in the mood for a delicious meal by making your dining room a cosy and inviting space. On the largest wall in the room, opt for a soothing teal hue like Mint Macaroon or Stonewashed Blue, that will comfort you the second you step into the room. Minimalism is the key to nailing this look, so avoid cluttering the area with trinkets and prints on the walls. 

#4 Bold bedrooms

If your bedroom is in dire need of a drastic makeover, it’s time to inject some personality and life back into it by picking the perfect paint shade. Get out of that neutral rut and go all out with a striking teal bedroom feature wall in a colour that’ll pop such as Proud Peacock. To soften the look, pair it with rustic wooden floating shelves and neutral surrounding walls in Jasmine White.

#5 Ocean marine 

For a chic and polished living room, give the deep ocean blue hue Sapphire Salute a try on a well-lit wall. Contrary to popular belief, dark hues like this work particularly well in smaller, enclosed spaces. To complete the look, draw inspiration from the nautical trend and weave in creamy-hued furnishings, along with natural textures like jute rugs. 

#6 Catching contrasts 

Give stark rooms an instant lift with a vibrant-hued Teal Tension feature wall, and watch your space come to life. This peacock tone is energising and refreshing so it’s perfect for spaces like the living room, accompanied by warm natural wood furnishings and colourful accessories like cushions and rugs. As this is a bold shade, be sure to contrast it with neutral walls in a colour like Absolute White, both to allow the colour to pop and to avoid the room feeling too busy.

#7 Cool cobalt 

Kitchens deserve a little fun and TLC, too, so add some character to the space by giving a bare wall a splash of colour. Blue shades such as Lost Lake can be calming and comforting, which is ideal for making your kitchen feel like a warm comforting hub of the home. This works particularly well with white or cream countertops and furnishings, while accessories in silver or brushed copper make for perfect accents.

#8 Creative license

If you’re looking to be a little more daring with your teal bedroom feature wall, don’t be afraid to use two different shades of blue and try your hand at some fun painting techniques, like painting geometric shapes. For a truly-chic finish, choose two complementary hues such as Breton Blue for the main wall and Neptune Seas for your shapes of choice. Don’t be afraid to add a print or some floating shelves to the wall, adorned with plants and books.
