Accent walls give your space a fresh, new look. They offer a simple, stylish way to add color to a room and experiment with smaller doses of brighter, bolder hues. Whether you’d like to define a living space or spotlight a treasured piece of artwork or architectural feature, an accent wall can create a striking, unique design element. Accent walls can also help you create color flow. By using the same color in fabrics, finishes, accessories, and furnishings in adjoining rooms, you can create a seamless transition from space to space.
Today’s roundup is dedicated to wallpaper accent walls, and that’s not surprising because it’s a hot trend in décor. There’s no need to wallpaper an entire room the way people did years ago. Instead, choose a bright and bold pattern and use it on just one accent wall.
Wallpaper Accent Walls To Make A Statement
An accent wall can set up a mood, and the best accent wall is the wall that stands out in the room. It’s the wall you are drawn to when you enter the space. If you are unable to determine which wall stands out in your room, ask a friend or family member to walk into the room and let you know which wall seems to draw their attention. The wall they choose will be your accent wall.
Be careful to avoid obscuring your accent wall with a large object, such as ceiling-to-floor drapes, windows, or an enormous wardrobe. If the wall is covered, then you will lose its dramatic impact. Finally, make sure not to leave an accent wall too bare, or you’ll have too much of a “pop” and the room will feel unbalanced.
Wallpaper Accent Walls For Separating Spaces
Many homes today are open-plan ones, and it may be tricky to divide the spaces. An accent wall is a perfect way to separate the areas, that’s why accent walls are so popular for entryways and home office nooks, which aren’t separate rooms. Home office nooks and reading nooks can be easily highlighted with some cool self-adhesive wallpaper, be careful with the choice of patterns and colors not to overpower it.
Wallpaper Accent Walls For Infusing Life Into Tiny Spaces
Infuse life into a small space without making it look too small. Choose one wall to cover with some bold or just colorless but patterned wallpaper. It will give your space a dimension, a texture and will make it eye-catching, and you can also hide an ugly wall if there is one. Use bold wallpaper for a small bathroom, powder room, laundry or a tiny home office, and it’ll get a cool eye-catchy touch and a dimension.
Have a small nursery? Use floral wallpaper for a girl’s room or constellation wallpaper for a boy’s room, it’ll make a cool statement and will add to the décor, if you take just one wall, the room won’t look dark and too small.
