An accent wall can totally transform a room, taking it from boring and drab to bold and exciting.  Accent walls create a new focal point for your space, add liveliness and contrast, and are typically a very inexpensive DIY project.

The starter accent wall

You can easily add an accent wall to your room in one afternoon by applying a new paint color.  Deep blues and bright oranges are common choices for accent walls but choose a color that will complement your existing decor and overall design aesthetic. 

Interesting textures

Bright, contrasting paint is a good starting point, but there are other options for accent walls that are even more eye-catching and distinct.  Floor-to-ceiling wood planks can make your home seem both rustic and modern all at once and provide a natural, outdoors-inspired feel.  It's more work than simply painting a wall, but it's still relatively inexpensive.  You can source the wood from pallets on Craigslist and stain it yourself before attaching it to your wall. It takes a little elbow grease, but it's worth the effort.

Patterns, mural, and more

Paint and wood are bold enough on their own to transform a room, but they're still pretty subtle compared to other accent wall options.  A chalk paint accent wall is a creative idea for any room and makes for some fun moments when you're entertaining.  There are also endless options for wallpaper and stenciling if you want some patterns or you can get really bold with a mural or oversized art print.
