A geometric accent wall is a wall decorated to be a bold and fresh focal point of the room. It will add pattern, color, style and design in a big way, for just a little money. You can add an accent with various paint techniques, wallpaper, tape or even fabric. However, the easiest and fastest way to create an accent wall is geometric wall paint. (And the cheapest!) Using a little creativity and these great tutorials from bloggers around the web, you can transform the whole feeling of a room with just this one idea. Do one in every room!
DIY Geometric Accent Wall Ideas & Tutorials
Geometric Wood Accent Wall
This modern geometric accent wall from ‘Olive & June‘ is a perfect example of the power of paint. They used cheap MDF board to create the pattern, and paint to make it a cohesive design. That’s it! This looks like a high end custom builder project, not a simple DIY. This would also look amazing as an accent wall in a master bedroom.
DIY Painted Ombre Hexagon Wall
I have had a girl crush on Karianne at ‘Thistlewood Farms‘ for years, and this is why. This accent wall is done with geometric wall paint, and that’s it, my friends. She shows you exactly how to create the shape and pattern, and even how to add those cute hexagon shelves that give this look a 3D pop! Love.
DIY Washi Tape Wall
At ‘Everything Emily‘, she used washi tape from the craft store to create this DIY washi tape accent wall. Think how many different ideas you could use this idea for! Washi tape is cheap, and comes in a zillion different colors, patterns, and widths. Great budget project!

This accent wall from ‘Crazy Life With Littles‘ , again, uses just paint. We love the trending colors, and the interest the different sizes and shapes makes on this wall. That boring little wall that you never knew what to hang on? This.
DIY Geometric Wall Design with Doilies
Every once in awhile, we update posts to add fresh and new projects. Even after updating this one, we just had to leave this DIY geometric accent wall idea in, even though it is quite a few years old. It’s just too brilliant! Actress Tori Spelling shows us how she created her paper doily entry wall in her own home using spray paint! Love all the color and that it has a graphic look, with a little softness close up. From ‘Redbook‘.
Paint Pen Wall
Ok, a $5 paint pen? That’s it? Yep, that’s all it took to make this amazing geometric accent wall from ‘The Wall Whisperer‘. Oh, and this brilliant tutorial to show you just how to make it look this amazing.
Board & Batten Accent Wall Idea
Here is another modern geometric wall from ‘Plank and Pillow‘. Their plank design uses just primed boards and paint, and it looks like this. Remember, you could make your wall more subtle by painting it a neutral color like this. Or, you could make it a “wow” accent wall by choosing an eye catching paint color.
DIY Stamped Triangle Wall
‘Vintage Revivals‘ shows you how to stamp a DIY tribal triangle wall! You could use any color, or even a shape other than a triangle with this method.
Striped Washi Tape Wall
This project is an easy DIY from ‘Ann Kelle‘. She created a colorful washi tape wall! Washi tape is a Japanese masking type tape found in lots of colors and patterns, and can be found at lots of craft and home improvement stores now. I think I would try this on a small accent wall… my arms would ache!
So that should get you started on your dream home, one geometric accent wall at a time! You’ve seen these walls in custom homes, now you know how easy it can be to have one (or four!) in your own place.
