The accent wall is a popular decorating trend for a reason: it works! It’s easy to pull off, it brightens up an entire room and it makes your entire home look better. An accent wall looks great in any room in your home: the living room, the bedroom and even the bathroom or the kitchen. If you’re planning to add an accent wall in any room of your home, take these top three tips into consideration.
- Pick the right wall. Choosing your accent wall should not be done blindly. Pick a wall that is the focal point of the room. For example, in your bedroom this would likely be the wall behind your bed or the first wall you see when you enter the room.
- Think about the furniture that will be placed against the wall. If the fireplace will take up half the wall, make sure you pick a color that won’t compete. If an accent table and a pair of occasional chairs are all that will be in front of it, you can go a little bolder with the color.
- Consider the art you want to hang on the accent wall. Find a theme and stick to it, and try not to use any colors that will clash with your paint.
