Accent walls break up the traditional look of having all four walls painted the same. Adding an accent wall can be a powerful design choice for your room. Typically accent wall colors should complement the other walls without being too dark or too light. They don’t have to be a single color of paint either! You can use a variety of materials, colors, and patterns to create something that looks incredible. They could be the same color as the other walls but have an entirely different pattern or material!
To choose the best wall for the accent, you want to find a wall that stands out. Which wall is your eye naturally drawn to when you enter the room? You want to make sure this wall is unobstructed from view and void of any large pieces of furniture. Lastly, you want to make sure that the wall is well balanced, meaning it shouldn’t be too bare or too busy once you’ve added the color.
