Accent walls are a classic way to add modern style to a space. They’re usually defined by a bright color that is then mirrored in small accents around the room. But you can add another dimension to this popular decorating trend by using a geometric accent wall.

This take on the style is what it sounds like: using some form of geometry to boost the style of the accent wall itself. It could come from the shape of the wall, the style the wall is painted in or even three-dimensional designs. Take a look below to learn how to take your accent wall to a new level.

Triangle accent wall

Triangle accent walls are easy to implement in converted attic spaces. 

One of the easiest ways to achieve a geometric accent wall is to use the geometry of the space itself to your advantage. Many attic spaces naturally feature a triangular wall due to the sloped roof; this is the perfect opportunity for an accent wall. Using a bold color on that wall showcases the room’s well-defined symmetry and can be mirrored in other elements throughout the room.

Multiple colors make well-defined geometric designs.

Even if you don’t have an oddly shaped wall, geometry can come from the painted style of the wall itself. Accent walls are usually one color, but the design in the photo above proves that they don’t have to be. The wild geometric paint job makes great use of a wide array of colors and shades.

This bold geometric accent wall works particularly well in a child’s room, though the style could also fit in an artistic, boho or eclectic space.

Neutral geometric accent wall

Try a neutral accent wall if you want to keep things classy.

The two previous designs showed styles that tend to work in children’s rooms. However, using neutrals to paint a geometric accent wall allows it to work in more adult spaces. That’s not to say that adult spaces can’t have color, but they tend to favor neutrals at the moment. A style like this could fit into a timeless transitional design, as well. The neutral color palette and patterns are a great complement to stark color schemes in décor.
