One of the most important features that every living room should have is an entertainment wall. This wall is used to place a Tv with all of its accessories, and sometimes it’s the best choice among all of the walls inside the living room to be used as an accent wall so it can be a main focal point that will easily attract everyone’s attention.
Turning this entertainment wall into an accent wall isn’t a difficult job. It’s as simple as repaint the wall with different paint colors from the others. But, to make it to the next level, you need to use your own creativity and imaginations to produce a stunning accent wall behind your Tv.
One of the most important aspects to get the best results is to choose the perfect wall paint color. In most cases, dark colors tend to works best. A dark backdrop color behind the TV will make our eyes focus more on the Tv screen and won’t get distracted. But sometimes, any lighter ones still can works well – in case your current living room decor doesn’t suit with a dark painted wall.
Usually, a plain accent wall without any additional decorations already looks great. But under certain circumstances, you need to add some additional decoration items or effects to make it look pleasant. For example, if you had a large wall, then it’s better to add some additional wall decor such as some wall sconces to avoid the wall looks empty.
If you need some fresh ideas to turn your entertainment wall into an accent wall, our team created 10 unique accent wall ideas behind Tv that you can use for your inspirations, and here they are :

If you are not being confident to paint your entire wall behind the Tv with any dark or bold colors then you can just use a small part of it as an accent wall and leave the entire part of the wall as it is. As you can see in our design above, we only created a narrow vertical accent wall that is sufficient enough to highlight the main area of the entertainment wall.
This approach also will produce a vertical effect that will be very beneficial if you had a low ceiling to make your space feels a bit higher.
For this wall, we used a charcoal color – a dark shade of gray that looks elegant and luxurious and generates a lot of contrast with other white walls painted in white. Oftentimes, a lot of homeowners are afraid of using this color as this color is very dark – very close to black – as it will make the entire room feels dark and gloomy. But if you are only created a small and narrow accent wall like this then you can safely use this color without worrying that it will make your space looks dark.
2. Horizontal Gray and White Accent Wall
This approach is similar to the previous ones, but this time we created a horizontal effect rather than a vertical one. The middle part of the wall is painted with dark gray, while the top and bottom area painted with white.
This kind of wall can create any room feels larger and spacious, so this approach can works great if you had a small living room.
You can use your own creativity to play with other color combinations that will suit your current living room interior style.
3. Full Navy Blue Accent Wall
In the previous two ideas, we created an accent wall partially. But you can also create the accent wall for the entire entertainment wall such as this one. It’s simple, straightforward, easy to make, but still looks gorgeous, thanks to the elegant navy blue color.
For this kind of accent wall, choosing the right paint color is the most important part. And any bold and deep colors are the perfect choice for this wall. You can choose any of these colors that match your current living room decor or furniture to make it looks flawless and integrated beautifully.

If you think a gray accent wall is boring and monotonous then you can use two simple tricks that we apply to this design to make it looks much more attractive and interesting. First, we created a trim that separates the accent wall. This trim produces beautiful framed effects that make the wall feels more modern.
Secondly, we add vibrant wall accessories to make the wall looks richer – a bright red wall clock. This one item can make a big difference to turn a boring gray accent wall into a stunning one.
7. Blue and White Accent Wall
An accent wall is not always only using one color. Instead, you can use two color combinations to create more exciting ones, such as what we did in this project. We created an accent wall behind Tv using blue and white, where for the white part we use a wood panel to make this accent wall feels a bit more vintage.
8. White Shiplap Accent Wall Behind Tv
Any wood panel can be a great option for an accent wall behind your Tv. This approach not only will make the accent wall more unique and interesting, but also will bring some fresh natural effects into your space.
One of the woods that you can use for creating this kind of accent wall is a shiplap. In this design, we arrange the shiplap in a horizontal position and painted it slightly with white wood paint to create a more simple and modern look while still keep the texture and grain to bring the natural effects that we need.

Here is another wood accent wall that we created. This accent wall behind Tv created for a farmhouse-style living room, so using wood is a perfect match for this kind of decor style. To add more modern effects to the wall, we add some clean vertical lines that make a big difference.
As this wall created in a farmhouse-style decor, so we keep the wood within its natural color to make it blend flawlessly with other furniture items that use similar natural wood elements.
10. Horizontal Brown and Gold Accent Wall
Another material that you can use to create an accent wall instead of wood is wallpaper. Wallpaper comes with various patterns, textures, and grain that will make the wall much more richer and interesting rather than a typical plain wall. You can also easily choose which wallpaper color and texture will match your current living room decor.
For this design, we use horizontal striped brown and gold wallpaper. One of the reasons why we choose this pattern is because we want it to help make the horizontal illusion that makes the wall feel much wider. And it’s very useful, especially in any small space. The brown and gold color are chosen to bring a glamorous and elegant effect that’s in line with the entire living room decor.
