An accent wall is a wall in a room that is a different color, design, or material from the rest of the rooms. These walls add an interesting design element into a space. When done right, wood can be a great material to use as an accent. It can transform a wall into something stunning and beautiful. Wood accent walls are an incredible way to boost the design concept in any room without having to commit to an entire makeover.
What to Consider Before Choosing your Accent Wall
There are a few things that you should consider before installing a wood accent wall in your home or office. Keep in mind the overall feel of the room that you are decorating. Do you want it to be bold or subtle? Functional or cozy? What are the other elements in the room that you want to keep and how will they look with your accent wall? Carefully considering all of these details will help you to choose the perfect wood accent wall for your space.
Choosing the right wall to transform into your wood accent wall is also important. It is best if your accent wall does not already have any architectural features on it. The size of the wall doesn’t matter, though. Incredible accents have been created on small divider walls as well as on larger feature walls.
Bold or Subtle Style?
When you think of an accent wall, you might imagine a feature that really stands out and grabs the eye. For some rooms, a bold wood accent wall is a great addition. Consider arranging the wood in your accent wall in an interesting pattern, like a chevron or starburst. You may also want to use a bold or contrasting paint or stain to really highlight the beauty of the wood. Some designs include multi-colored wood planks arranged in a gorgeous pattern.
If you would rather have a more subtle accent wall, you can add some interest without grabbing all of the attention. Install a wood accent wall and paint or stain it to match the rest of the walls in the room. The wood will lend a feeling of warmth and coziness, and it will add interest into the space without standing out too boldly.
