Accent walls can greatly enhance a room if they are done correctly. Many homeowners often wonder whether or not they should do an accent wall or keep the room one solid color. Accent walls have many benefits when incorporated inside the home. Ciarlanti Painting – Jeff The Painter will share the benefits and best applications of accent walls throughout the home.
Make a Focal Point in the Room with an Accent Wall
With the use of an accent wall you can bring attention to or create a focal point to certain features inside the home. One great example is a wall fireplace. You can accent the fireplace and its mantel with an accent wall. For those who have a wall dedicated to pictures of family or life’s events, you can use an accent wall as a focal point. Accent walls are a great way to bring attention to any feature inside the home.
Accent Wall Designs with Paint
An accent wall is a great way to bring more dimension to awkwardly shaped rooms as well. At times a room inside the home may have odd shapes or design. Using an accent wall can help make oddly shaped rooms feel better and a bit feel more unique. When using the right colors, you can make the wall pop out and look really good. However, using the wrong color can make oddly shaped rooms look worse and it doesn’t give the look you were hoping for. To create a dimensional room by using accent colors, be sure to stay with contemporary colors for the accent wall or walls. Especially, in smaller rooms, avoid too dark a color even for accent walls.
How to Choose Accent Wall
