This year design is all about creating bold statements that'll go the distance, with a few oldies making a comeback, including the accent wall. Also known as a feature wall, this trend first become popular in the 1990’s. And while accent walls have evolved in taste and fashion over the years, they continue to be a quick, easy and cost-effective method to liven up your home. In this blog we go through some simple tips to help you get started.
Choose your wall
Generally, accent walls are the main focal point of the room, but you can set up your accent wall to your preference. A wall with a mantle is always a great option. Accent walls also work well on the wall where your bed’s headboard sits and on walls opposite windows or entryways.
Personalize based on your style
An accent wall is a great opportunity to get creative and showcase your personal style. Depending on what feel you want to achieve, you can play with textures such as decorative wood panels, tiles and brick, as well as fun wallpapers and bright paint colors. The goal is to separate the look and feel from the rest of your space, so don’t be afraid to be bold.
Light the way
Whether you are using an accent wall to highlight a beautiful area of your room or to visually separate two spaces in one room, applying lights can do wonders for your wall.
