Paint a Wall In Your Home with These Tips

Consider painting a wall in your room to create an accent wall. Accent walls have been a trend for a few years, they are walls that are painted a separate color from the rest of the room to accentuate features in the room. 

Accent walls are the perfect way to spice up a dull room in your home. If you’re ready to take your living room, or bedroom to the next level, consider adding an accent wall. However, before you start painting, you should consider these tips. 

Consider which wall you should paint

It’s important to make sure you create the accent wall on the natural focal point of the room. When you walk into a room, where does your gaze naturally go? If it’s to the headboard above the bed, then paint that wall. 

What color should you paint your accent wall

Make sure you pick the perfect color to paint your accent wall. You don’t want to paint it the exact color of your couch, instead, pick a color from your decorative pillows and paint the accent wall that color.

Make sure you use painters tape

Painting any wall can be a difficult task, it’s easy to get paint in spots where paint shouldn’t be. Make sure you properly tape the areas around your wall so your accent wall will be perfectly neat. 

Accent walls don’t need to be painted

Using wallpaper or creating a gallery wall are both great options for making an accent wall without using paint. If you don’t want to paint a wall, or if your apartment doesn’t permit painting, then consider using wallpaper and other decorations to create an accent wall in your space.
