Creating an accent wall is a hot decor trend and a cool way to accentuate your room. Such an accent is usually done with a contrasting color or wallpaper with a different pattern, but there is an original idea – do it with textures! Of course, there is a lot of textured wallpaper and a variety of plastic and wood panels from different designers, but you can also use natural stone, brick, and wood of any kind – old doors, windows, or just boards – they look fantastic and natural. This is a great way to upgrade old materials and make a very stylish statement in any of your rooms.
Wood accent walls
Wood is the most popular material for statement walls, and the number of options is endless: you can opt for a weathered and aged wood plank wall, a smooth wood panel wall in a specific color, a ship wall in a bold shade, a wood panel, and even weathered driftwood slab wall, to add a lot of texture to the room. If you prefer a catchy and bold look, try wood shingles in a neural stain and a fabulous look is guaranteed.
Stone and cast stone accent walls
Stone is another popular idea for adding texture to your space. It can be a faux that is easier to install, or a natural one that gives the room a real natural feel but is more difficult to apply. If you want to pamper yourself, you can add an onyx accent wall to your living room or a marble wall to the shower room – this is pure luxury that will never go out of style!
Fabric accent walls
A fabric accent wall makes your room cozier and softer – especially cool for bedrooms. You can upholster the wall with leather, velvet or any other fabric, emphasize it with decorative nails, use catchy strips of fabric with lights or other looks that suit your room.
Other accent walls
What other ideas can you try? Aged metal, paper, 3D panels of different colors, concrete, panels, and even empty frames and ceiling medallions on the wall can add texture. Let the following examples inspire you!
