9 Accent Wall Styles For Your Home Decor

Accent walls are a great way to spice up a room. You can add in a vibrant color, or mix a cool pattern into your interior design.

Today, we’ll show you some of the best accent wall ideas to give you some inspiration.

COLOR

The quickest, easiest way to change up your room with an accent wall is to add some color. Pull out a color form your wood floor, area rug, tapestries or furnishings to complement the overall décor, or go wild and create some contrast.

 

NANAWALL

A nanwall is a folding glass door. Unlike most walls which are there to stay, these are somewhat temporary in that you can open them up or close them as you want or need to. This Colorado home features a Nanawall with a fantastic design. This type of accent wall requires a little more preplanning with your designer, architect and/or Builder to ensure it fits in with the architecture of your home or room.

STONE

Like a nanawall a stone accent wall isn’t going to happen overnight. It will take some careful planning with your construction team to put it in place. But when you do it can have quite a dramatic effect, like in this Colorado home. The rustic, distressed look of the stone, goes perfectly with the textures in the distressed wood floors.

WOOD Wood is an extremely versatile material to use for an accent wall. You can use modern wood like Walnut to create an elegant accent wall.

Or you can use rustic antique wood flooring for something a little more rugged looking.

WINDOWS

Who says accent walls need to be made of wood or painted? Why not an accent wall of windows. What better way to show off your back yard, gardens, a scenic view or just bring the outdoors inside whenever you want.

BRICK

If you are upgrading an urban flat, or other industrial building chances are pretty good you have brick in there somewhere. Instead of covering it up, savor it as a historic architectural detail that can add a lot of character to your space.

TILE

Tile is very common for a kitchen or bathroom backsplash but you can use it in other areas of the home too. This Michigan home features a beautiful design on painted tile. The design goes perfectly with the overall décor of the space.

PRINTS

Like adding a fresh coat of paint, adding a print to your accent wall can be done quite easily. You can design a print to paint on with stencils and careful planning or install wallpaper that already has the look you want.

MAPS

For all of you with who love to explore by land, air or sea using maps on your accent walls can be a fun way to personalize your space beyond your favorite color of decorative accent.
