One way to bring charm into a room is to decorate one wall different from all the others. An accent wall can revive the place and easily become the focal point of the room. Here are 3 easy but effective ways to create an accent wall and stay on budget.
1. Wall Paint
The easiest way to create an accent wall is to paint one of the walls in a darker or different tone than the rest of the room. This is easily done, very affordable, and can really change the mood of the room.
2. Wall Paper
Another cool idea is to choose a unique wallpaper for the wall you want to accentuate. This is a great way to incorporate a variety of patterns and textures into your decor.
3. Tile or Stone
Adding a stone wall is a good way of changing the scenery in your home. Different types of stone or brick can be used, and some may add an outdoorsy or relaxing atmosphere. For a more sophisticated effect, a marble wall can be the perfect choice.
These are just a few simple ways to add character to a room in your home. You can play with these ideas and maybe even try more than one type of accent wall in the same room. For example, you can combine a stone wall in the living room with another wall on a different tone of paint color than the rest of the space.
When adding an accent wall to one or more of the rooms in your home it is important to maintain, rather than disrupt, the ambience and flow that already exists in the space, respecting the colors and mood. If you are not sure how to make all the pieces fall together it is best to consult a professional interior designer to guide you through the process.
