Ideas For Accent Walls

An accent wall can totally transform a room, taking it from boring and drab to bold and exciting. Accent walls create a new focal point for your space, add liveliness and contrast, and are typically a very inexpensive DIY project.

The starter accent wall

You can easily add an accent wall to your room in one afternoon by applying a new paint color. Deep blues and bright oranges are common choices for accent walls, but choose a color that will complement your existing decor and overall design aesthetic.

Interesting textures

Bright, contrasting paint is a good starting point, but there are other options for accent walls that are even more eye-catching and distinct. Floor-to-ceiling wood planks can make your home seem both rustic and modern all at once and provide a natural, outdoors-inspired feel. It’s a bit more involved than simply painting a wall, but it’s still relatively inexpensive. You can source the wood from pallets and apply stain before attaching them to your wall. It takes a little extra elbow grease, but it’s worth the effort.

Patterns, materials, and more

Paint and wood are bold enough on their own to transform a room, but they’re still fairly subtle compared to other accent options. There are endless possibilities that utilize stone, stenciling, and tile if you want some patterns, and with first-rate durability, each of these lend themselves as strong candidates for kitchen backsplashes.
