Where Should I Put an Accent Wall

Accent walls also known as feature walls are trending in a big way. Reminiscent of the 80s and 90s, they popped up all over the place. An accent wall is meant for one wall only. This is usually the first wall you see when you enter the room. Look for other architectural clues, such as a fireplace, built-in bookcases, or architectural nooks. These are the areas you want to bring out or enhance with a feature wall. 


What Color Should I Make My Accent Wall

Determine whether to create your accent wall with a dark color or light color. Lighter colors will make a small room appear larger. Darker colors will make the room recede or feel cozier or smaller.

Types of Materials from which to Create an Accent Wall

Many feature walls are now created with mill work or wood products. That’s not the only type though. There are wallpapers, and tile as well as wood that will create a stunning accent to your room. Evaluate the condition of your room, i.e. what is the humidity level within the space. Peel and stick wallpapers and some types of wood are not meant to be surrounded by moisture. Make sure you choose the right type of material for the project.
