Accent walls give your room a fresh new look. They offer an easy and stylish way to add color to a room and experiment with smaller doses of lighter, bolder hues. Whether you want to define a living space or spotlight a valuable work of art or architectural feature, an accent wall can create a striking, one-of-a-kind design element. Accent walls can also help you create a flow of color. By using the same color for fabrics, finishes, accessories and furniture in adjacent rooms, you can create a seamless transition from room to room.
Today’s roundup is dedicated to wallpaper accent walls, and that’s not surprising since it’s a hot trend in decor. There is no need to wallpaper an entire room like people did years ago. Instead, use a bright and bold pattern and only use it for an accent wall.
Wallpaper accent walls to make a statement
An accent wall can set a mood, and the best accent wall is the wall that stands out in the room. It’s the wall you’re drawn to when you enter the room. If you can’t tell which wall in your room is catching her attention, ask a friend or family member to come in and let them know which wall seems to be catching her attention. The wall you choose will be your accent wall.
Avoid covering your accent wall with a large item like floor to ceiling curtains, windows or a huge closet. If the wall is covered, you lose its dramatic effect. Finally, make sure that an accent wall isn’t left too bare, otherwise there will be too much “pop” and the room will feel unbalanced.
Wallpaper accent walls to separate rooms
Many homes today are open plan and it can be difficult to divide the spaces. An accent wall is a perfect way to separate areas. This is why accent walls are so popular for entryways and home office nooks that aren’t separate rooms. Home office nooks and reading nooks can easily be highlighted with a cool self-adhesive wallpaper. Be careful when choosing the patterns and colors so as not to overwhelm them.
Wallpaper accent walls for living in tiny spaces
Bring life to a small space without making it seem too small. Choose a wall that you want to cover with a bold or just colorless but patterned wallpaper. It adds dimension, texture and makes your space eye-catching. You can also hide an ugly wall if there is one. For a small bathroom, powder room, laundry or small home office, use bold wallpaper to add a cool, eye-catching touch and dimension.
Do you have a small kindergarten? Use a floral wallpaper for a girl’s room or a constellation wallpaper for a boy’s room. It makes a cool statement and adds to the decor. If you take only one wall, the room will not look dark and too small.
