The bedroom is that room in the house where everyone should feel relaxed and rest properly. A good night’s sleep is mandatory for staying healthy and energetic and enjoying life to the full. However, a lot of people cannot fully relax in their small and cramped bedrooms. The sense of being unable to unwind and enjoy the hours spent in your most private sanctuary is one of the most unpleasant and unhealthy. However, there are ways in which you can make your bedroom feel more welcoming. No, you cannot make it larger, but you can trick your eyes to forget about how small it is. One of the ways in which you can achieve this is by creating an accent wall in your small bedroom. We found ten creative ideas which we loved and will share with you right now.
#1 Display Your Hobby
A dramatic black & white contrast is the best way to create an accent wall. But this person took it one step further by displaying their skateboard collection.

The purpose of an accent wall is to create a visual theme.
