Expert Tips on How to Paint an Accent Wall

Nowadays it’s rare for homeowner’s to leave their walls stark white. With so many home improvement shows, DIY websites and blogs, people are inspired to take chances and express themselves with color.

One way to make the transition from bare walls to vibrant hues is by painting an accent wall.

Accent walls are a cheap, easy and fast way to personalize your space.

For around $40 for a gallon of paint you can transform your home.

Accent walls are perfect for renters. Some landlords require that when you move out, the home is put back to it’s original condition. By painting just a few select walls there is less area to paint back to white when you leave.

Here are a few tips to help you decide what colors to use and on which accent wall:
