The new trend in Maryland home redecorating is wood accent walls made from new or reclaimed hardwood. They’re especially popular for master bedrooms. Bedroom accent walls are usually installed behind the bed, accenting your bed location and separating it from the rest of the room. A wood wall dresses up the room and works whether you like traditional or minimal decor.
What Are Wood Accent Walls?
Considered one of the top home design trends of 2016, accent walls lay over an existing wall to enhance a room. Due to the beauty of the wood’s texture and grain, our clients consider them art objects. Accent walls can be simple, built to display a pattern, or put together in no particular order.
We build wood accent walls from horizontal planks. You can choose a full accent wall for your master bedroom or a partial wall. A partial wood accent wall behind your bed tricks the eye and makes your headboard seem taller and formal. If you already have a great architectural feature like a sloped ceiling, a wood accent wall emphasizes it, making you proud to show off your master bedroom to guests.
What Species are Most Popular for Wood Accent Walls?
Reclaimed wood, or salvaged wood, is by far the most popular choice for wood accent walls. Reclaimed wood works well even in modern or contemporary bedrooms. Wood adds just the right amount of warmth to a minimalist master bedroom. The natural markings and distressed appearance from long-term use create a beautiful art piece.
A wood accent wall built from new hardwood adds simplistic beauty. You can enjoy the wood’s grain and texture along with different lighting accenting the wood’s various tones. Hardwoods on the cool end of the color spectrum look great in rooms with dark walls, while medium to dark hardwoods look spectacular in rooms with white or off-white walls.
Should I Match My Accent Wall to My Hardwood Floor?
We favor contrasting hardwoods in the same room. When installing a wood accent wall, it’s best not to have too much uniformity. Our design associates can help you choose a hardwood that stands out while complementing your wood floors and furniture.
