Accent Walls Series #3

Accent Walls Series #3

We’re in the third and final part of our #Accent­WallSeries now so we’re going to take a look at more ways to exe­cute this design tech­nique! We’ve talked about adding wall­pa­per and installing reclaimed wood or trim, but now we’re going to adven­ture into more uncon­ven­tion­al ideas.


Need more stor­age space in your home? What bet­ter way to add stor­age then to make it into a state­ment piece. Accent­ing a wall with built in book­cas­es is a great way to give your space depth and per­cep­tion. Paint­ing them the same col­or as your walls will help blend them in so they’re not too over­whelm­ing. BONUS — they pro­vide the per­fect excuse to go shop­ping for nic-nacs!


Stone or tile can also be a great way to accent a wall, espe­cial­ly in a kitchen or bath­room where these mate­ri­als will stand up against wear and tear. Try extend­ing your kitchen tile back­splash up to the ceil­ing or tiling behind the toi­let or van­i­ty in the bath­room. This will help add col­or, tex­ture and vari­ety to the space where just plain paint might not be enough.


Tex­tiles are anoth­er fab­u­lous way to get into the groove of accent walls. They are sim­ple and easy to place, and pro­vide detail to spaces that lack it. You can hang a tapes­try on any wall and switch it out depend­ing on your mood. Tex­tiles are great for sea­son­al decor — so hang a flo­ral print in the spring and a more rus­tic print in the fall to help spice up your room!

There are many oth­er ways to incor­po­rate accent walls into your space, not just the exam­ples list­ed in our series. You can use ceil­ing tiles com­bined togeth­er to form an accent wall, leather or oth­er fab­rics, large art pieces or even nat­ur­al look­ing ele­ments such as fake flow­ers. Let your cre­ativ­i­ty flow!

Whether you are look­ing for a more per­ma­nent design or a sea­son­al switch up, accent walls are a great way to go. Do your research and inves­ti­gate the dif­fer­ent types that suit your lifestyle and home decor. Don’t be afraid to roll up your sleeves and try some­thing new. An accent wall could be just what your space needs!
