Accent walls — they not only bring perspective and contrast into your home, but they’re also an easy way to naturally add color to any kind of spaces, including the kitchen of course. This way you can get pops of color and texture in your kitchen without painting the whole room. Plus, they’re not definitive, you can still change color to change the mood, without breaking the bank. Here are some great examples of kitchens and dining rooms with daring accent walls:

This eclectic kitchen from Garrison Hullinger Interior Design Inc,features a wide tangy green accent wall that flows from the kitchen to the dining room. This bold statement unifies the two spaces and adds energy to an otherwise empty and dull space. If you opt for an eclectic style and you like to gather objects from various inspirations, a bright bold color will create the perfect counterpoint to unify the decor. This works especially in large open spaces.

In this open kitchen composition, the designers from CG&S Design-Build, Austin, TX, kept the kitchen with neutral tones and white walls, creating red-colored accents all around the kitchen. This set-up creates the feeling that the kitchen “blends” into the overall architecture with several focus points that enhance the contemporary edge while maintaining a certain warmth.

Paint is not the only solution to create contrast and presence in your kitchen. This wonderful backsplash wall from designer Jessica Helgerson is made of reclaimed slabs. This warm and textured wall adds height and structure to the room. It’s the perfect answer to the vintage wood-burning stove and its vertical presence.

This classic wall accent design is the perfect example of how to create a focus point in architecture. The blue wall gives interest to the dining corner, which otherwise would be toned down by the massive presence of the kitchen furniture. Be creative and allow yourself to use bright colors because they tend to cast a colored light reflection that embraces the rest of the room. After all, if you feel bored after a while, you can always change the color without big expenses! Design by Design Platform.

Neutrals can also serve as accent colors. This calm and elegant living space by Sabal Homes, has found a balance between the functional kitchen and the entertaining dining area.Here the paneled taupe wall of the dining corner has echoes of the transitional kitchen cabinets of the same color. The shared characteristics of the two elements unify the whole space without adding unnecessary visual clutter.
