If you’re not the cookie-cutter type, you may be thinking about adding an accent wall to your home to spice things up. This interior home design trend has become increasingly popular in recent years – and it’s easy to see why. Not only are they easy to create, but they can quickly transform your home. Best of all, you have unlimited paint options, surfaces, and materials to choose from. Of course, there are a few things you should know before picking up a paintbrush. Continue reading to find out what they are!

Do Think Outside the Box

You don’t have to limit yourself to a simple wall paint. Feel free to think beyond solid colors and step out of your comfort zone when planning your accent wall! Take it a step further and think of the many ways you can use paint color. For example, consider adding stripes or choosing a specialty paint finish. Metallic colors are a great choice because they make a powerful statement.

Don’t Forget About Texture

There’s more to accent walls than just paint – don’t forget to think about the texture as well! Stone or tile can make a bold statement in your home. You can add extensive shelving to your wall if your room lacks storage or architectural interest. Some other popular ideas include adding a gallery of photos, artwork, or a wall-mounted electric fireplace.

Do Consider Other Wall Colors

Make sure you consider the color of your other walls. Accent walls usually look best when paired with adjoining walls in a light to medium shade. Since it can be tricky to make an accent wall in an all-white room, you must add a good color for balance. A strong accent wall will look best when paired with walls in neutral colors like gray, greige, or beige.  

Don’t Just Stick to Walls

Believe it or not, a chic decorating trend includes creating an accent ceiling. These can easily be created using soft or vivid colors. Don’t forget to add white crown molding to help separate the wall color from the ceiling. It’ll make the room look sleek and stylish!

Do Choose the Right Wall

For optimal results, take some time to really think about what rooms can benefit from an accent wall. Spaces without architectural features often look great with a textured accent wall. An accent wall doesn’t just mean a simple paint color either, you can add a wall of windows or shelving.

Don’t Forget About Wallpaper

Wallpaper is a great tool for creating accent walls. There are multiple colors and styles to choose from, meaning you’re guaranteed to find something that fits your home’s aesthetic. Plus, they allow you to transform your home without the long-term commitment of paint.
