Why Feature a Wall?
The apparent reason for showcasing one or more walls in your home is to add a creative element. Accent walls separate a plain room into a cozy individualized space within your home. You can separate a dining room within a living space or accent a games room wall then decorate the area to uplift that living space. Your front entrance would transform your space into a heart warming welcome to your family and friends. Setting the tone in your en-suite in the mornings and in the evenings where you can soak in the tub with candles after a long day on your feet. Adding style and contrast to any living space to liven up an area and present personality your way.
Accent Wall Tips
Highlight an existing focal point of your desired room of choice. The wall should complement the rest of the room. Bold and in your face might be too much for some rooms. Subtle with smooth accents might be better then a rustic pallet wood accent wall. Think twice about putting a accent wall in an already crowded room. Already crowded room will be to busy for the eyes and will overwhelm the onlooker.
