For a while, accent walls fell out of grace and weren’t used nearly as much by interior designers. These days, accent walls have made a big comeback and are known for their ability to add a splash of fun to an otherwise drab space. If you’re looking for ways to make your custom home more bright and inviting, accent walls may just be the answer. Still on the fence about whether or not an accent wall is right for your space? Let’s break it down and see what the advantages may be.
Add Some Color
In spaces where you don’t want everything to feel too uniform, accent walls are a fantastic option for your custom home. It lets you take advantage of colors that would otherwise be considered too bold for your home—a striking red or a cooling blue that wouldn’t work if the entire room was painted that color, but when used sparingly and appropriately, adds some life to your room. Mix in some neutral tones with something that has more character to give your room the character you’re looking for.
Easy, Budget-Friendly Design
While you can always ask your custom home builder to include an accent wall in the original design of your custom home, it isn’t as hard as one may think to do the job yourself. All you really need is basic painting skills, a can of the paint of your choice, and some free time. The benefit of this is that you can always change it out whenever you want, so if you get bored of a particular color, you can repaint over it and go with something new and exciting.
Versatility For Any Home
Accent walls aren’t the only way to use paint to accent your home. Consider painting a bookshelf that’s up against that wall as well, or even tables or other furniture. Think about what accent walls do: they create a focal point that has a pop of color. Expand that idea to other elements of your custom home and you can find some really creative ways to spice up the look of every room in your house.
