Some of us do just fine with a monochromatic kind of life. There are those who feel no urge to jazz things up with anything surprising or out of the ordinary. Then there are the rest of us; those who look at the four walls of a room and think “what else can I do?’ That’s where an accent wall comes into play. An accent wall allows you to break up the monotony of a single-color area and add your own personal touch. But there are certain things you should know about how to do an accent right before asking your professional painter to include it in the design plan. Follow these tips for an accent wall that works:
- Be careful of color choice. Though a bold and contrasting color can be a good idea in certain rooms, you need that color to complement, and not clash with the other paint choice in the room. Choosing a deeper tone of the same color will allow your wall to stand out but not in a garish way.
- Choosing the wall. The wall is going to be the focal point of the room so make sure that it’s not distracting from other design or architectural elements that may compete with it.
- Complete your statement wall with a geometric or organic design with stencils or decals. A gallery of pictures, artwork and mirrors is also a popular and attractive idea.
