When it comes to making a statement in the home, painting one wall a different colour from the others is the perfect place to start. An accent wall is the easiest way to add a pop of personality into an otherwise plain space, and will make decorating the area a lot more fun.
Feature wall colours are usually complimentary colours and can help to tie the furniture and colour scheme together. In an open concept home, you can use a kitchen wall accent to define the area and accentuate the kitchen from the dining area, or a living room wall accent to highlight the family room from the kitchen.
Adding an accent wall to a room is a quick and inexpensive way to update a space without re-painting the whole home. There is no limit when it comes to the imagination and combination of ways you can add a feature wall, and paint is the easiest material to change if you do decide later on that an accent wall is no longer what you want.
It’s always best to stick to the type of material when it comes to a feature wall – as you don’t want to overcomplicate the wall space. Similarly, it’s important to make sure you feature the right wall in the right room; avoid putting a colour-blocked wall in an already-busy room as this will just create a sense of chaos instead of calm.
