Accent Wall Ideas

Wainscoting wall with freestanding bathtubAccent walls are a great way to infuse life into a room, without committing to a bold design or color for the entire space.

Adding texture or color to a wall can give the space direction, as well as a focal point. You’ll want to take into consideration what’s adjacent to the wall, and also color schemes in neighboring rooms, to avoid the accent making the space too busy.

In this bathroom, we looked at several options for the accent wall behind the bathtub. We settled on the wainscoting, in this case made up of 2×4 beams, with the main wall painted white and the rest of the walls a soft gray. It was an economical way to create interest and add to the soothing aesthetic of the bathroom, while making the bathtub the focal point. Using tile is also a very popular option for bathroom accent walls, and you don’t have to worry about repainting it down the road.

Accent walls are just part of the equation when it’s time to re-imagine your bathroom. You can always set up a time to meet with a designer to talk about your primary bathroom plans, or follow us on Instagram or Facebook to find inspiration for bathrooms, and beyond.
