Keeping this in consideration, which wall is best for accent color?
Most accent walls look best when they adjoin walls in a light to medium shade. Accent walls in an all-white room are stunning but tricky. The contrast of a bright accent wall against white walls can look very modern and even stark. Balance your strong accent wall color with neutral wall colors on the other walls.
Subsequently, question is, which wall should be painted darker? Paint walls opposite windows a cool, dark color to absorb light in too-bright rooms. If you want a brighter room, paint a dark color on the window wall with lighter colors opposite to reflect light back into the room.
Additionally, what does a dark accent wall do?
Dark colors read as receding from the viewer, so the accent wall visually enlarges the space (and sets up a nice contrast that can make the rest of the space seem brighter by comparison).
Are accent walls outdated?
Accent walls Whether it's wallpaper, a bright paint color, or a photo gallery, creating an intentional accent wall is going out of style in 2019. Instead, home decorators are predicting that all the walls will match and focal points will come from decorative accessories instead.
