1. Vertical Charcoal Accent Wall Behind TV

A black tone, such as charcoal, is a great way to add some contrast and create interest in a room. Such tones are also a great option as they're not as overwhelming as a true black yet have the same effect. If an entire wall painted in charcoal seems like a lot, you can paint only the section behind the TV, much like a panel that flows onto the ceiling. This will draw the eye upward, adding to the room's height.


2. Horizontal Dual-Toned Accent Wall

If you want to make a room feel more expansive, horizontal lines or directionality are the way to go. Pick a design with a TV panel that stretches across the width of the wall. Highlight the panel with a bold colour such as an olive green, a jewel tone, a warm brown, etc. Let it take centre stage by choosing a neutral hue, such as an off-white for the wall itself.

3. TV Feature Walls: Marble & Wood Slat TV Accent Wall

The combination of marble and wood is one that will never go out of style. The luxurious and sleek look of marble juxtaposes nicely with the texture and warmth of wood.

9. Accent Wall Living Room TV with Backlighting

Backlighting behind the TV is a great way to set the mood for movie nights or when you're bingeing your favourite show. Fairy lights, RGB strips, and other lighting devices are some options you can consider. This is also a budget-friendly way to create an accent wall since there's no construction work involved, and you require only one device to create the desired effect.

10. Wallpaper for the Win

Wallpapers are an excellent option to add pattern, colour and texture to your room. Blend the TV into the background with dark self-patterned wallpaper. Bring in the vintage vibe with an intricate floral one. If the panelling is too expensive, choose a wallpaper that mimics the look for the same effect. You can do so to recreate marble, granite, and other stone looks.



1. Can the TV wall be an accent wall?

Yes, the wall that the TV is mounted on or placed against can be an accent wall. It also makes sense to turn it into an accent wall because a TV garners attention in the room.


2. What looks good on the wall behind a TV?

It depends on the overall design of the room. Wallpaper might be the right option in boho chic or eclectic rooms. In contrast, in a room with a Scandinavian or Japandi design, a simple painted wall might be the way to go. Panelling in the natural wood finish is a great option for a rustic touch.


3. What colour should your wall be behind your TV?

 Opt for dark tones such as black, brown, and jewel tones if you want to camouflage the TV. If you want the TV to be the focus, create a contrast with the black screen by opting for light shades of grey, whites, taupes or pastels.
