What should I consider when painting an accent wall in my home?


Answer by  jennyv8 (133)

Consider the colors of the other walls in the room and your furnishings. The accent wall color should complement the existing colors while standing out from them.

When picking an accent wall to paint a different color it is important to consider how the furniture will be arranged. The accent wall should be the wall behind the largest piece of furniture in the room, like the bed or the couch. It should also be a solid wall with no windows or doors.

Remember that the point of an accent wall is to be noticed. Don't pick one that's hidden from most viewpoints in the room or has lots of windows.

You should choose a color that is complimentary to your color palette, but that is not too jarring. Your accent wall should emphasize the assets of a room.
