Accent Wall – Trending

Does your home need a freshening-up, but you don’t have the time and money to invest in a complete makeover? In that case, an accent wall is the perfect option. Here at Mike’s Decorating and Painting, we offer a wide range of home-improvement services, including painting, wallpaper installation, and faux-finishes. 

Paint Accent Wall

Paint is one of the easiest ways to create an accent wall, and it is one of the cheapest options, too. A little splash of color is enough to make any room stand out. In addition to that, there are a variety of printing techniques to choose from if you want to incorporate some extra details. This is the most popular approach, since it is simple yet effective.

Before we grab a bucket of dye, though, there are some important aspects that need to be considered first. Colors come in many shades, undertones, and temperatures. Not all combinations work well together. Patterns, on the other hand, are usually cohesive when it comes to colours, and some of the most popular styles at the moment are chevrons, diamonds, sponge, and stripes.

If none of these options seems particularly appealing, there is another great way to give your accent wall more personality with paint. Namely, you can also choose to use stencils, which come in all shapes and sizes. Or, you could even create a mural! Visit our Interior Painting page!

Wallpaper Accent Wall

A wallpaper accent wall is a great choice for anyone, especially for those currently renting a space, since there is no need to use water or glue. That is why some people even call it renter’s wallpaper.

There are also countless designs to choose from! Whether you decide to go for some floral prints, animal patterns, or even geometric shapes, there is surely something out there for you.

However, we’d recommend to avoid installing wallpaper in bathrooms or any other humid area. Also, applying wallpaper on clean walls is easier than applying it to ones with built-in features or rough surfaces. Prints on plain walls tend to draw more attention, as well. Click here to see our Wallpaper Services.

Faux Finish Accent Wall

Faux finishes create the illusion of texture on almost any surface. They are very popular and work well on drywall, plaster, or wood. We can reproduce any faux finish you have in mind; from basic ragging – like sponge finishes – to marbleizing, wood graining, and Venetian plaster. Have a creative texture in mind? We can take any sample or idea you may have and bring it to life. Make your living space as unique as you are! Check out our work!
