Need an easy project to immerse yourself in this spring? Why not try taking on a modern accent wall in one of the rooms of your home to give it a fresh look and revamp your style?

We have curated samples of modern accent wall designs to get you started on a few ideas. Accent wall design is a great beginner project that can make a huge statement within a space. You’ll find examples of board and batten accents with various layouts and patterns included here for inspiration. In regards to the modern style, you’ll want to try out clean lines and simple geometric patterns. We’d also suggest sticking to neutral color palettes or earth-toned paints to add to your feature wall so that it is easily incorporated into an existing room without clashing with other decor or furnishings. You can also make bold colors like black or dark grey work for a moodier take on a modern style. Other accent wall options include wallpaper, wainscoting, and stenciling or hand-painted features. The designs below include ideas for all of these options and will give you a great visual representation of what each style would look like upon completion.

Feel free to steal a few ideas from the beautiful accent wall designs below, and give this beginner-friendly DIY home improvement project a go in your home.
