3 Tips for Painting an Accent Wall


Accent walls have been a trend for the last couple of years. They’re walls within a room that are painted a different color to accentuate other existing features of the room. These can be things like color scheme or architecture.

So what goes into picking and painting an accent wall? 

Regardless of what type of look you’re going for or what wall you’re thinking of painting, there are some things that painting services experts will keep in mind. 

What color should I paint my accent wall? 

Color will come down to personal preferences and the room you’re painting. Generally, you’ll want to stick with colors that go together or are in the same color scheme.

You’ll want to start off soft and then if you feel like your accent wall isn’t bold enough, you can paint it a bolder color. Example, it’ll be hard to come back from painting an accent wall black. But if you paint it gray, you can always paint it black later. 

Which wall is the accent wall? 

When you walk into a room, where does your eye naturally go? That’s probably the wall that you’d want to paint a different color. 

The focal point can depend on the arrangement of the furniture and structure of a room. Other times, with a bedroom, your eyes will naturally go to a wall first regardless of furniture arrangement. That’s why you might want to work with a painting services company to find an accent wall that works. 

What if I don’t want to paint? 

Accent walls don’t have to be painted. You can add wallpaper, texture or even a unique design to an accent wall to make it pop. A painting services company can advise you on deciding what to put on your accent wall. Their expertise can help bring harder ideas to life and you’ll be able to work with them on not just your accent wall, but the look of your whole room as well.
