Facade Focal Points.
Facades are the ideal canvas to create an eye catching feature wall. The eye is naturally drawn towards a large façade which makes it the perfect location for a feature.
A simple method for creating a feature that stands out is to use a block with a different texture. This will break up a monotonous exterior and is something easily achieved in mixed material constructions.

Another simple method for creating a feature is to use a contrasting colour. Choosing a boldly different colour to the rest of your home will create an obvious focal point; though be careful not to go too far with your colour choice. For extra impact try using both a different colour and a different texture for your feature.

Bring the indoors out.
To create a sense of continuity and flow between your exterior and interior designs, why not try using the same materials, textures, or colours used on your internal feature walls on your external ones.
Windows and Doors.
Even if your home doesn’t have a natural façade, your windows and doors are already some of the most noticeable elements of your home. You can use new framing materials to accentuate these focal points and turn them into stylish features. A bold frame of coloured masonry blocks can do wonders!
Use the right light.
To really shine a spotlight on your new features install external lights to create the perfect frame for your feature at all hours.
