These 5 ideas for wall treatments are sure to inspire your next home DIY project if you’re looking for a change.

Bold color

If you want to create a simple, yet bold contrast, painting a dark accent wall (such as black, navy blue, or hunter green) will pack a powerful punch. A dark accent wall adds an extra element of interest to an otherwise soft and neutral toned room.

Statement paper

An eye-catching wallpaper pattern is one of the most dramatic ways to dress up your accent wall. A strong pattern isn’t for the faint of heart, but there is always the option for semi-permanent stick on versions if you aren’t ready to fully commit.

Chalkboard wall

If you have an artistic side and love to constantly change things up, a chalkboard-painted accent wall might be just what you need. This wall can be used to add seasonal décor elements, making lists, or simply an outlet for letting out a little creative freedom in your home.

Neutral accent

Having an accent wall doesn’t always need to be a striking statement. Adding a neutral wallpaper in a similar color palette to the rest of your decor creates an additional layer of texture that takes your room to the next level, without being too in-your-face.

Artistic mural

Adding a full or partial mural on one of your walls will turn an otherwise simple room into a work of art. Murals can be painted on for a more permanent design, or adhered to your wall with temporary stick-on designs. Murals add a playful touch to a room, making them a great idea for an accent wall in a child’s room or nursery.
