You might have noticed in other people’s homes — or in design magazines or blogs — there is often an accent wall in each room that is painted a different color from the rest of the room. If you’ve never thought about doing this in your own home, consider the benefits. If you do, you just might find that you’d like to add an accent wall to some of the rooms in your home.
Obviously, painting just one wall in each room can be more affordable than painting the entire thing. If the paint in your home is still in good condition but if you would just like a change, doing an accent wall in each room is a great way to get a new look without spending as much money.
Avoid Going Overboard
The great thing about accent walls is that they often come in bright, bold or dramatic colors that you wouldn’t normally see. It’s a great way to make a bold statement and to add some personality to your home without going overboard. For example, one dark purple wall in your dining room might look really nice, while painting the entire room in such a dark color might be a bit overwhelming.
Create a Focal Point
An accent wall helps you to automatically create a focal point in each room. It’s a good way to call attention to the areas of your home that you would like for people to focus on, while drawing the eye away from any eyesores.
