When it comes to interior painting and design, selecting the right accent wall can transform a room from mundane to completely mesmerizing! An accent wall can add depth, character, and visual interest – while also serving as a focal point that ties the entire space together. Continue reading below for three tips that are certain to help you make a well-informed and tasteful decision when painting an accent wall in your home!

Tip #1. Evaluate the Room’s Lighting Conditions

You should take note of the room’s natural and artificial lighting. The former includes light that enters from outside, while the latter includes your lamps, wall scones, and other various types of bulbs. A dark accent wall can make a small room feel even smaller if not properly illuminated, while a well-lit space can handle deeper hues with relative ease. Consider how your light interacts with various colors by using paint sample sticks and be sure to test things out during various times of the day.

Tip #2. Choose the Right Color

When it comes to color selection, the possibilities are pretty much endless. You can opt for a contrasting hue to make the accent wall stand out, or choose a complementary shade for a more cohesive look. Neutral colors like beige, gray, or even soft pastels offer versatility and can create a welcoming atmosphere. If you want to go with a bolder option, navy blue, emerald green, or deep red make striking impressions. It also helps to consider the purpose and function of your room here, since certain colors give off particular vibes and feelings!

Tip #3. Think Beyond Solid Colors

You can also think beyond solid colors for your accent wall and opt for something a little more active, like a trendy pattern. Your accent wall might be perfect for stripes, geometric designs, ombré, or a specialty paint finish like metallic; these are powerful style statements for accent walls! You also have several options when it comes to wallpapers and peel murals – while it usually isn’t ideal to use these throughout an entire room, they tend to be very well-suited for accent walls.

Choosing the perfect accent wall for your home is a creative endeavor that allows you to express a little bit of your own personal style. That said, pick something that makes you happy and works with your space, not just because it’s trendy; that way, you’re certain to be pleased for quite a while!
