Fun and Easy Accent Walls for Kids’ Rooms
Nurseries and kids’ rooms are some of the most fun rooms of a home to decorate. What could be better than creating a space that lets you reconnect with your inner child and go wild with color and pattern?
One of the most affordable ways to put a personal touch on any child’s room is with paint. We’ve rounded up 5 easy accent walls you can create with interior paint. Swap out the colors or change up the designs however you like to make a space perfectly customized to your child’s personality.
A Twist on Traditional Painted Stripes
You’ve probably seen plenty of examples of rooms with painted stripes that are all the same width, but this accent wall with stripes of varying widths feels a little more playful. Selecting paint in a variety of colors is a great way to define a color theme for a room or to tie together accessories that lack a common color.
This accent wall offers all the same paint color possibilities as the striped accent wall but with the potential for even more variation. Paint the circles randomly all over the wall, create a grid with them, or make them appear to float upwards by distributing them more heavily at the bottom as in the example above. The possibilities for this style of painted accent wall are almost endless!
An Accent Wall Using Diagonals
If you’re looking for an accent wall that adds color and interest but won’t overpower a space, this simple pattern manages to feel cheerful yet centered. We love how these homeowners used a different paint color for each quadrant on the grid, but you could use as few as two colors to simplify the accent wall further.
Fun with Geometric Patterns
It doesn’t get much more fun than this wall of repeating triangles in a rainbow of colors! If you have extra cans of interior paint or sample pots sitting around the house, this would be a great way to use them up.
Create an Easy Landscape
The mural on this room may look fancy, but it couldn’t be simpler to make. Painter’s tape stuck to the wall at different angles to form a zigzag creates an abstracted ridgeline that is sure to have any child dreaming of the outdoors.
