11 DIY Accent Walls Ideas: Fabulous Home Decor on a BUDGET!

Room makeovers with simple accent walls

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 minds 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!

11 Brilliant accent walls 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!”

Erin, I love all the ideas! BUT the chalkboard accent wall is probably my favorite. I bet the kids have fun drawing on that wall all the time.

Hi Andrea! I am so happy that you LOVE the chalkboard wall idea. It is great way to allow kids to be creative while containing the chalky mess they may make!

If I could decorate a wall in my rented apt with any of these, it would be the chalkboard one. It just seems to be so cool!
