Creating an accent wall can add a fresh, unique element to any room in your home. Accent walls are a chance to design your home in your own sense of style and the options are unlimited. 

Here are some essential tips to consider when you create an accent wall in your home. 

To start an accent wall, it’s important to think outside of the box. Accent walls are more than just a fresh coat of paint. Don’t limit yourself to simply painting a wall and stopping. 

Be bold and try to think of other designs like stone veneers or other decorations. Consider the use of stone, brick, or tile.

New shelving can help bring an accent wall together or even a photo gallery. The only rule for an accent wall is that it should add a stunning visual to the room.

As long as you have the right accents around the entire room you can choose any color or style you desire. 

Remember to take into account the other colors of the walls in your room. Most accent walls look best when they adjoin walls in a light to medium shade. Also, make sure you select the right wall as your accent wall. Rooms without an architectural feature, for example, can benefit from adding an accent wall.
