Accent walls have been around for years and for good reason. They serve as a creative method to add flair and fun to almost any room. While most accent walls are created using paint or wallpaper, we want to help you think outside-of-the-box with these new and innovative accent wall ideas!


1. Peel and Stick Wallpaper

Peel and stick wallpaper is quickly climbing to the top of the 2020 design trend board. It’s affordable and simple, yet the available options are endless. Even Joanna Gaines hopped on the wallpaper train by offering her own line of peel and stick wallpaper, including her trademark white shiplap. If Joanna is about it, so are we!

Our suggestion:

Add peel and stick wallpaper to powder bathrooms, kid’s bedrooms, or game rooms to spice up the space.

2. Laminate Wood

A laminate wood accent wall creates a cozy, warm feel. By opting for laminate material, you’ll have your pick of any wood color you desire. Not to mention, installation is easy. Whether you opt for click ‘n lock or glue-on, laminate flooring painlessly attaches to the wall, as it’s light and durable.

Our suggestion:

Using laminate wood for an accent wall is a great option for bigger rooms, like living room spaces, kitchens, dining rooms, or even large master bedrooms.

3. Photos

The easiest, most affordable accent wall works with what you already have: photos! Matte and frame your favorite family photos to match your space. You can keep it simple with black and white or add trendy touches of gold or bold colors.

Our suggestion:

Try creating a photo accent wall in the hallway, along the staircase, or at the top of the stairs!
