The living room is an important part of your house. It’s usually the first room that guests see when they enter your home. It’s also the usual place used for gatherings or entertaining guests. With that said, it warrants the right attention to make it presentable. Every homeowner should take the time to consider how they will design and decorate their living rooms. While there are a lot of ways to make the room beautiful, one of the popular trends today is to make accent walls or feature walls.

Decorative living room accent walls can give the room a unique personality. An accent wall is basically one wall in a room that is either painted differently or decorated in such a way that it is easily distinguished from the interior theme of the living room. This only works if you choose a wall that doesn’t have breaks. By breaks, I mean a wall or a door. Making a feature wall will require you to use the whole wall so a window or a door will only divert the attention.

There are a lot of different ways to make a wall unique from the rest of the room. One of the easiest way of making an accent wall is to use the wall color. If you’re using neutral colors for your living room theme, painting the accent wall with bright or bold colors will definitely create an accent wall. You can also choose to create a painting on the wall. Because it is free from any breaks, it’ll achieve a beautiful wall painting that can be used as an accent wall.

Another option is to use wallpapers. Let’s say you painted your living room walls with light blue. Using wall paper on one wall will separate it from the rest of the living room theme. If you can find wallpaper prints that are unique or different from the decorating theme you’re going for, it’ll give you that focal point you want to create. Whether it’s stripes, polka dots or floral wallpapers, it’ll definitely give your room a unique touch.

Creating textured walls is also an option. It requires a lot more work compared to painting or using wall paper. It’s also a more expensive route to take to create an accent wall but it contributes a lot of aesthetic value to your living room. This type is definitely the best when it comes to decorative living room accent walls.
