Stunning Ideas for the Perfect TV Accent Wall

Did you know television was invented in 1927 by Philo Taylor Farnsworth? Ever since its inception, the television system has continued evolving from black & white to color TV sets, LCD and LED screens to now plasma and smart TVs.

Bringing home a brand new TV set always makes us joyous; however, setting it up at home in a way that it becomes the center of attraction can always seem challenging.

With the coming of thinner frames, accent walls for TV became the trend for all homes. An accent wall is the first wall that catches your attention when you enter the living room.

It can also be the wall that you face when seated on your living room couch. An accent wall can be of different designs, and in fact, you should explore all avenues of making your accent wall interesting.

But there are more than one ways to define your accent wall, and that is exactly what we will talk about in this blog.
