Creating a home that has a high degree of visual appeal is tricky work! You’re going to spend a lot of time thinking about colors, décor and things of that nature. When you want a home that really has a signature look, though, you’ve got to think in three dimensions! You need to learn how to build visual interest by making unconventional choices and by creating contrasts.
In terms of the pure structure and look of your home, nothing can do this better than an accent wall. Not only do accent walls provide a visual focal point for the eye, they also contribute greatly to adding a sense of dimension and depth to a space.
