Just make sure you cover the floor with old newspapers.

2. Stencil

Stencils are an inexpensive and magical way to create a stunning difference to a setting. Just choose one of the walls in your room, buy stencils of your favorite design and a can of contrasting acrylic paint. Get some basic painting supplies, watch a video online on how to paint over stencils and get painting! The results are guaranteed to make your guests swoon!

3. Wallpaper

Wallpapers are all ‘in’ this season, and an easy way to create accent walls without shelling out much! Make sure you choose a pattern not too bold, as it’s easy to get bored with a busy design, when you have to see it day in and day out.

4. Wooden Planks

You can also use wood cladding to create an accent wall. There’s little else that can add richness and elegance to a setting, like wood.

5. Tiles


Gone are the days when tiles were used only in the kitchen and the bathroom. Tiles can be used as a great design element to add visual interest to a wall and make it a focal point in a room. Create a feature wall with a difference and have your guests do a double-take every time they enter your room!
