Have you ever walked into a room that made a statement? Chances are there was an accent wall that got your attention. This is a quick and easy way to be unique, stylish, and add personality.

Why are accent walls trending?

Accent walls invite creativity and inspire change. They help make spaces more interesting. When using color, it can be quickly changed to switch up the look and feel of any décor.

Room design doesn’t have to be boring. Accent walls help enhance the room and can be whatever you imagine. Keep in mind that when done incorrectly, however, an accent wall can throw off the entire look. Here are a few tips to consider:

  • Evaluate the entire room.
    Know what you want to achieve before getting started. Look at all the walls in the room to decide which one will make the most impact.
  • Use a solid wall.
    You want continuity in the design without interruptions. This adds depth and has clean lines.
  • Choose the right color.
    This could be paint or wallpaper but make sure it blends with the rest of the décor in the room.
  • Don’t count out texture.
    Adding stone, paneling, textured wallpaper, or tile can create a distinctive and effective look in the room. Floor-to-ceiling tile looks great whether using grout or peel and stick.
  • Consider the other elements.

If you’re putting artwork or other items on that wall, they should be considered before choosing the final color or pattern.

  • Do something different.
    While most people look for walls to add an accent color to, consider the ceiling. Adding wallpaper, color, or even texture to your ceiling can make a difference. Consider the ceiling an extra wall in the room.
  • Try molding.
    A new trend in accent walls is adding crown molding and painting it a color. This subtle change looks elegant and luxurious.
