Making a statement in your home comes in many forms, but an accent wall can really take a room up a notch. This can be a great option if you want a change in your home without undergoing a complete (costly) transformation. Consider some of these suggestions for an interior switch-up you won’t regret.
Try out a new color
If you want to really commit to changing things up, you could always paint one wall a bolder, brighter color than the rest (or vice versa). If a color isn’t doing it for you, try a wallpaper instead. While you could go completely different from the rest of the room, bolder doesn’t have to mean inconsistent. Tie in the accent wall with the color palette already in place for a sleek look.
Wall textures are all the rage. Experiment with one yourself by trying it out as an accent wall. There are many different types—it’s all about doing the research and letting your DIY-savvy side shine. Be sure to practice on something less permanent before trying it on the wall, though.
Reclaimed wood is making its mark on the interior design world. Everywhere you look, people seem to be taking a more minimalist approach to decor, and what’s right outside our doors is coming inside as well. Get on board with this trend, which doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.
Experiment with temporary
If you want to make a less permanent change to a room, temporary wallpaper may be the way to go. It can be removed and changed out for a different design or pattern efficiently, making it ideal for those who don’t want to commit to a total change.
Sometimes, a gallery wall is all you need to take a room to the next level. If you’re wondering what to do with all of the photos you have, consider displaying them on a wall. Incorporate other prints in various sized frames to give it that something extra.
