Accent walls have been on trend for a long time now. It’s incredibly stylish with an immediate and significant effect. Executing some versions of it is also effortless to do it yourself. This relative ease to pull off and the dramatic effect on your home makes it one of the most useful concepts in your designer’s toolbox. Needless to say, we see no reason why the momentum should stop anytime soon.
While it was originally used as a statement piece in and of itself, it has recently emerged as a feature wall that highlights one of the most important parts of the living room – the television. It aims to break the monotony of solid walls in order to make binging and chilling on Netflix for several hours straight more engaging.

Perhaps shows like Black Mirror has gotten to your core and you now wish to not see your TV ominously displayed in your living room. Feature walls can even be used to hide your television so you’re not forced to see this little black box all the time. Hiding it behind a large painting has the same break in monotone as a regular feature wall. When you’re ready for your occasional binge-watching session, just slide the painting to reveal your TV. It’s also an excellent way to keep the clutter of power cords and audio cables manageable.
