Accent Wall Essentials

Consider adding an accent wall to a room if you want to change the ambience without doing a lot of work. This is a solution that may be utilized outside, as well as in every part of the house. A stunning feature wall can be made in a variety of methods; some are doable DIY projects, while others call for more intricate planning and installation. Selecting the accent wall, you wish to brighten up is the most difficult aspect of adding a visual element or flash of color to a space.

Accent walls are common in living rooms and bedrooms, but they can also be seen in kitchens, bathrooms, hallways, home offices, and even outside of houses.

Depending on the wall and color you select, accent walls can alter a room’s dimensions, shape, and atmosphere. For your accent wall, as well as other surfaces and materials, the possibilities for paint are virtually limitless.

Here are some wall ideas to get you started on your own project.

Painted Accent Wall

One of the most popular methods for creating an accent wall is probably painting. You can use any shade, but to achieve the desired effect, you must follow a few guidelines. You should use a dark color if you want a hint of drama. Bright accent colors highlight your audacious personality, and a colored wall stands out against a monochromatic backdrop. Any shade of blue, gray, black, purple, or orange works well for an accent wall as long as it blends in nicely with the other décor elements.

Tile Accent Wall

Tiles are an additional low-maintenance accent wall design. They are resilient enough to withstand minor dents and scratches. Additionally, tiles create a great focus point, particularly when employed in areas other than the kitchen and bathroom, where they are typically found. The master bedroom’s tile wall is particularly striking and expresses taste and individuality. Additionally, accent walls or columns in the living or dining room look great when tiled. 

Plant Covered Accent Wall

You can create a faux garden on one of your walls if you enjoy plants and the sensation of freshness they provide to a space. Identify a room and an area that are well-lit, then design your “outdoor recreational place”. For more cheery colors, you can stick to just green plants or mix them with blooming flowers. The concept is especially appropriate for city people who have no other way to create the garden of their dreams. Not only do plants provide lovely natural décor, but they also filter the air in the space, which will enhance your health. 

Wood Accent Wall

Another material to think about for your accent wall is wood. It makes every space seem cozy and connects us to the natural world. Additionally, you may use it creatively in any space, including the bathroom and bedroom. It is compatible with every other material. You might choose to have a wall constructed out of wooden logs, pallets, or reclaimed wood. An alternative would be to use pine (or any other type of wood) planks to create a striped wall and allow some of the color paint to show through.
