Larger Spaces

There are mnay different benefits to adding an accent wall to your home that can create a great space and help make your house a home. Below are some of the best benefits of adding an accent wall in your home.

Giving A Pop Of Color

  • One thing about having an accent wall is giving yourself room to be creative. It may seem too outgoing to paint your whole house navy blue, but having an accent wall is a great way to incorporate a fun side to your home while keeping it stylish. With an accent wall you can dive deep into your creative side and use colors that you may not have considered before to give great contrast to your home. There are many different areas of your home that you can use these colors to give an added pop of color to match the sofa or even your bedset just to bring it all together.

Make Smaller Rooms Seem Larger

  • One of the best benefits of having an accent wall in your home is the ability to create the illusion of a larger space. This illusion gives a focal point mostly by using a darker, more dramatic color. This is beneficial in smaller apartments and homes to give the look of a bigger space to bring your decor together better. Having a darker accent wall pushed the room backvisually creating the look of depth within your space.

Separate Rooms Without Construction

  • Many homes have connecting rooms that can make the space seem a bit too large and your eyes can view these areas as one big area when you want to separate the two. With an accent wall you can create the illusion of two separate rooms without having to go through the hassle of construction. This holds true mostly in kitchen areas where the dining area is pushed into the same space. Having an accent wall in these areas gives a separation by using color instead of adding walls or repositioning furniture.

Residential Areas

  • Residential areas are the most common places to find accent walls to create pops of color, illusions of bigger spaces, and of course greater depth. These accent walls are perfect for kitchens, living areas, and bedrooms to give added space or beautiful bold colors without committing to a whole room. Residential accent walls are a budget friendly way to create a new space and give a fresh new look to your home without anything too drastic.

Commercial Areas

  • Many may be under the misconception that accent walls are strictly for residential areas but they can be used in commercial spaces too. Commercial spaces like fitness centers, business locations, and medical centers can benefit from accent walls to create a larger space or draw attention to specific areas. Fitness centers can benefit by using accent walls for different workout areas and providing vibrant colors to encourage positive encouragement. Businesses can benefit from accent walls to create a larger space if offices seem cramped or even just to give a pop of color to really show off their logos.

Professional teams are trained to have a keen eye for accent walls and the best way to get them done.

Frequently Asked Questions

When I Choose An Accent Wall Color Does It Have To Be Bold?

Just because you choose to have an accent wall in your home doesn’t mean you have to go all out and choose a wild color. You can keep things simple with neutrals like creams and browns and create beautiful contrast that way. The most important part of an accent wall is more of the placement than the color. With perfect placement an accent wall can work with even the simplest of colors.

How Do I Know Where To Put My Accent Wall?

The best part of hiring a professional painter is the knowledge we have on the perfect placement for your accent wall. The best place to put an accent wall depends on the room you choose. For a living space it is best to put it on either the wall that your sofa is against or the opposite like with an entertainment center. In bedrooms it’s always best to put the accent wall behind the bed to draw focus and create a larger look. One thing you want to avoid with an accent wall is anything that breaks in the wall such as windows and doorways to get the most benefit from the wall.
