#TrendAlert: Accent Walls

Board and Batten

Board and batten means putting wood or mdf strips on your wall in a pattern or design! It is an affordable way to give a space character, add a focal point, and elevate your space.





Be Bold with Paint

Use a big-impact colour on an accent wall to draw the eye or to highlight an architectural feature. Turn it up a notch by adding geometric patterns or lettering.






Go All-Out with Removable Wallpaper

Wallpaper is back — big time — and for good reason. It offers thousands of looks that are otherwise unattainable for the average DIY painter. But what if you’re in a space that won’t let you make permanent changes to your walls or you’re worried about that big floral print becoming outdated? Meet Peel & Stick Wallpaper. It wants to be your new BFF and you should let it.

Easily transform a space and try out new trends while keeping your landlord (and future you) happy. It goes up in minutes, and comes down in seconds with no sticky residue left behind. Add a pop of pattern to any room, or get creative and dress up an old bookshelf or a staircase.


Get Customizable Texture with Paintable Wallpaper 

Most deign pros recommend adding textured elements throughout your space to create visual interest. Applying this rule to your walls offers additional benefits, as textured paper will help to disguise imperfections or problem areas on your wall’s surface. Textured wallpaper offers customization, too: paint it in your favourite colour (see our favourite jewel tones here) or leave it as-is for a more subtle look.




Cozy Up to Faux Wood Plank

Wood plank accent walls are one of the fastest growing trends and showing no sign of slowing down. Skip the expense of the real thing and opt for a Peel and Stick Wallpaper or lightweight textured cladding.
