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


Interesting textures. Bright, contrasting colours are a good starting point, but there are other options for accent wallz 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 more work than simply painting a wall, but it's still relatively inexpensive. It does take a bit more effort, however it is truley worth it.


Patterns, Murals, and more. Paint and wood are bold enough on their own, but they are still pretty subtle compared to other accent wall options. A chalk paint wall is a creative idea for a childs room, or a games room.  Even in the family room. It males for some fun moments when you're entertaining, and prevents crayons on the dry wall. There are also endless options for wallpaper and stencilling if you want bold patterns. If you're looking for something more adventurous and unique, try a mural or oversized piece of art. 


The options for accent walls are endless, but we can't stress enough that your wall must match your homes decor and design.
