So I do love an AMAZING accent wall. I read that some designers are claiming that accent walls will be going out of style. However, designers may just be saying that because they have to always change their mind to keep us on our toes. And because I am a DIY nut, most of these examples of accent walls are totally do-it-yourself projects.
Here are some of the best accent wall ideas!
From my specialty of painted accent walls to feature walls made of shiplap, there is no easier and cheaper way to spruce up a room in your home. Why have boring walls when you can make people walk into any space and say, “Wow!”
These amazing accent wall ideas will ever go out of style. These unique DIY decor ideas are so budget-friendly that they are sure to be used now and in the future. These walls especially come in handy if the idea of painting or wallpapering all of your walls with bright patterns sounds a little scary!
Okay, so we have all seen the shiplap movement taking over everywhere thanks to Joanna Gaines. However, this painted shiplap accent wall is the new accent wall. This moody blue is to die for and truly transformed their bathroom. Make sure to check out the amazing step-by-step tutorial provided by Sustain my Craft Habit.
Using wood can really warm up any bedroom or living room. I just love this coastal accent wood wall. This is such a stunning wall and I cannot believe that it was created using only regular 6 x 12 boards and leftover paint that the bloggers at Life Unfolding had on hand.
Paint truly can transform any space CHEAPLY (just make sure to buy the BEST painter's tape)). With a little patience and effort, this girl’s bedroom was made-over using mostly paints that were already on hand. This tutorial will help you to create your own amazing ombre hexagon wall!
Try saying that one a few times quickly. Again, some painter’s tape and one color of paint can change a small bathroom from blah to boring! This herringbone pattern would be an excellent addition to any bathroom, kid’s room or laundry room!
This accent wall by Jessica Welling Interiors was created by doodling with SHARPIE. I need to complete this ASAP in one of my spaces. Anyone can do it! You just can't be scared to start. At first, I thought this accent wall was wallpaper, yet I found out it was completed using sharpie with the added bonus of a pegboard art supply holder and floating desk. Every little artist would love to have a space like this or to display their artworks in this wonderful space!
This DIY accent wall is a mixture of some of our favorite designs. Just like us, they used the same painter's tape to achieve the chevron wall design on top. This muted pink combined with the painted wood is a perfect DIY nursery idea. (see some of our other DIY nursery ideas here).
Wallpaper sure is making a comeback and we see why with such fun patterns (like this one) and colors out there. This wall makeover really added to this space. We love the idea of adding the accent on the top half of the wall in order to not overwhelm.
We absolutely love it when a simple solution, like a DIY accent wall, can add to your home decor. Now it is your time to go ahead and be creative. How can you add to your home decor? What is your favorite way to add extra design to your space?
