A modular kitchen is the most frequently used room in the home as it is where friends and family enjoy spending time together, whether cooking or eating. Incorporating a cool and elegant kitchen accent wall can help you positively change the space’s mood.

Hungry for some inspiration? Dive into the top 8 stylish kitchen accent ideas and take your best pick. 

You can achieve the ideal kitchen accent wall if you experiment with the following:

  1. Kitchen wall texture (brick, stone)
  2. Kitchen wall pattern (durable wallpaper designs)
  3. Kitchen accessories/decor (painting/artwork, family photos, vintage metal signs, wall clock, green plants)
  4. Kitchen wall colour (should blend in well with the aesthetic of the rest of your house)
  5. Kitchen cabinetry design (open shelving, floating shelves, cabinet handles)
  6. Kitchen backsplash design (geometric tiles, marble tiles)
