If you look up wall panelling online you will find a tonne of ideas to help you DIY your way onto this trend. Forget the wall panelling of the 80’s and 90’s, this isn’t an entire room but an accent wall that gives your room some personality.
If you want to you can create a design on an accent wall, or keep it more traditional by only panelling the lower half of a wall. Not only does this give your room more personality, but it also helps raise the value of your home!
