5 accent wall ideas

There are a number of reasons why an accent wall is a good idea for your home. Accent walls can help bring color into a room as well as texture. It is also a way to highlight an architectural feature or unique element in your home.

Below are 7 accent walls that can get your creativity flowing:

1. Wood

Recycling has been popular for a while now. Creating an accent wall with recycled wood not only uses otherwise wasted wood; but it's a great way to bring character, warmth and natural beauty into your space. 

2. Paint

A dark accent wall draws your eye to a large exotic tray and other curiosities.

Accent wall - flat + high gloss + handmade stencil = beautiful! DIY tutorial. *Great way to add just a little bit of something to the room. Paint the entire room in the flat paint, then do the accent wall with the high gloss. Both paints should be the same color.

The bold color scheme and patterns in this bedroom make it a unique space that really draws the eye. From West Elm. #chevron #bold #accentwall
Not only is this the least expensive way to create an accent wall; but it's also quick and easy. Use a stencil to add pattern. 

3. Wallpaper
