The bedroom should be your sanctuary. A place you feel most comfortable in, where you can rest and unwind after a long day. Comfort should be that main feature in the bedroom, meaning a suitable bed, closets, and dressers for your clothes and maybe a night table or a vanity if you have room for it. What most people don’t pay much attention to in a bedroom is the decor. Of course, you might look for certain types of furniture or covers and bedding to make the room more pleasing, but there are other ways to make your bedroom special.
Wall art is a simple way to brighten up a place that doesn’t take up too much space. Pictures and frames are all well and good, but honestly, thanks to our phones and the thousands of pictures we have on them, hanging pictures in our home is becoming a thing of the past. Art and paintings can be quite expensive, and sometimes we get bored of the painting or it just doesn’t match the decor anymore once we decorate. So how do add the decor to the bedroom?
Accent walls are quite a popular decor feature and they can be created in a variety of ways, from painted murals or shapes to intricate designs from different materials. They add a certain dimension and aesthetic effect that can’t be accomplished by simple decor pieces. With that said, let’s take a look at some amazing accent walls that can transform your bedroom.
Paneling is becoming more and more popular for accent walls, and you will see why. The patterns and designs you can create are nothing short of amazing, like this white paneling with wooden rhomboid design, giving you a luxurious modern look.
Terracotta Diamond Accent Wall
You don’t have to use entire panelings to create a 3D effect on your walls. You can arrange some moldings in a fun pattern and paint the wall in one or multiple colors. This terracotta diamond pattern is a great example of what the end result might be.
Large River Stone Accent Wall
Wainscoting is a lovely way to decorate and protect the walls, and if you have large panels, you can make an accent wall by filling in one of the sections with large, flat river walls. It gives out a calming, earthy vibe to the room.
Wide And Narrow Board Accent Wall
Dark walls should only be used in rooms with a lot of natural lighting, otherwise, it will close off your room even more. This accent wall has a modern look, with narrow and wide boards separating in the middle of the room. It makes the room appear wider, yet cozier.
3D Honeycomb Accent Wall
This honeycomb pattern with protruding pieces is a wonderfully modern design, and some might agree that it might look even better if it’s in a brighter color. It still looks amazing, giving a more masculine look to the room, and here we also see a way to get those darker walls and keep the room sufficiently illuminated. Installing LED rope lights along the edges of the wall compensates for the dark color, and it will work great for other designs or darker rooms as well.
Stripe And Mirror Accent Wall
You can optically alter the size of the room just by painting the walls, making it longer or shorter, darker or lighter. Painting a horizontal stripe divides the room, making it appear lower and wider, and you can make it more interesting by adding some fun shapes on either side and placing mirrors on the stripe line to open it up even more.

Wooden Baclit Relief Accent Wall
This bedroom is just wonderful. Backlit wooden planks in different sizes are craftily arranged to create a real work of art on your wall. with slick lines and a minimalistic look, it creates a warm, calming atmosphere perfect for a bedroom.
Floral Accent Wall
Flowers always bring color and good vibes to a room. While we can’t always have a bouquet around, we can still enjoy their beauty in our bedroom by making an accent wall with some floral wallpaper.
Industrial Wood And Black Chevron Accent Wall
Wood floors are a big selling point for most houses, and those chevron or herringbone patterns do liven up the room even more, but we rarely appreciate that, since we don’t usually stare at the floor. Now, what if you can extend that pattern up the walls a bit, and add something more, like dark wooden boards or thin stone slabs on top? It’s fun and a wonderful option if you like the industrial design.
Light Art Accent Wall
LED hose lights are usually used for creating soft lighting along the edge of the wall or furniture, but you can take it a step further and create lovely light wall art that is both beautiful and functional.
String Curtain Accent Wall
Accent walls don’t have to be made permanent or long-lasting, like with paneling or other materials. you can make an accent wall pretty much of anything you like, even some fun colorfully trying curtains that you can hang at the alcove of the bed, to fill up the space and bring some color to the room.
Salvaged Wood Accent Wall
Salvaged wood brings in warmth, but it also carries a certain character with it. The way that the wood has aged and the patterns and colors it creates is what the modern rustic style is all about. If you can manage to get your hands on some salvaged wood, you should absolutely consider using some of it for a bedroom accent wall.
