With all this extra time we are spending at home, maybe you’ve looked up and pondered adding an accent wall. Between zoom backgrounds and dining room offices, this easy way of changing things up may be just what the doctor ordered!

An accent wall is one wall in a room that is a different style, usually in color, then the other walls. Typically, you’ll want to choose a wall that doesn’t have windows or doors. If you’re going for a bold color, it’s recommended that the other walls be kept neutral. A big thing to keep in mind is that the neutral undertones should match all walls to prevent clashing. A Kranenbugr Painting Specialist would be more than happy to help you with this if you are unsure.

Another tip is to consider all the colors in the room when selecting your accent wall color. This includes furniture, pillows, throws, rugs, and artwork. You’ll want to make sure the room stays balanced. Make sure you have fun with it. This accent wall is going to add a layer of character to your space with minimal effort, so give yourself permission to go for it!
