Three Ways to Add Some “Wow” to Your Walls
Are you bored with your plain white walls? Or maybe they’re not even plain white, maybe you have a painted accent wall that’s simply not enough of an accent anymore. Whatever it is, here are three options to add some new excitement to your spaces, with wallpaper, tile, and wood wall finish options.

Are you tired of your plain white walls? Walls don’t just have to be a coat of paint, and an accent wall can be so much more. There are so many fun interventions, and if these walls could talk, they’d tell ya all about it.
Fortunately, we designers speak that language, too, and we can interpret ways to add some “wow” to your walls, accent or otherwise.
Three Ways to Upgrade Your Walls
Wallpaper Accent Wall
Wallpaper has come a long way since the days of florals and damasks. Perfect for adding some punch to a powder room, or creating a statement wall in a bigger space, wallpapers are a great way to add some extra color, pattern, or even texture to a space.
This wallpaper offers some whimsy to this bedroom’s headboard wall, creating a designed space that reads well.
Tile Accent Wall
Tile walls don’t just have to be for kitchen backsplashes and showers. There are so many beautiful and unique tiles in this world, and it can make for a stunning statement wall. You can use tile to add color, pattern, or create added depth/texture to an otherwise blank white wall.
You can even do some cool faux looks. Take, for example, this bedroom. This condo has that chic urban look thanks to that brick tile. Yup, that’s tile, folks, not actual brick!
Wood Accent Wall
Wood paneling may bring up memories of 1970s basements, but today, there are more directions you can take wood walls than just a retro throwback feel. Shiplap, tongue & groove, beadboard… the list goes on!
You can run wood paneling horizontally to add more attention to the width of the room, or run it vertically to create more visual height, as we did in this dining room.
