A double-height accent wall is always a surefire way to add a sense of drama and grandeur to a blank space. But designing one such wall can be exhilarating. While designing it perfectly can amp up the look and feel of the space, one small mistake can also make it look overwhelming and put your efforts in vain. In this blog, we have summed up ten gorgeous double-height accent wall ideas to help you get started. Read along to get inspired.
1. Feature A Bold Design
If you are looking forward to boasting a beautiful double-height wall in a lobby area, the best way to accentuate it is with a bold design like this gunmetal finished wall. It will help you enhance the elegance of your space. And will also leave a memorable impression on your guests. You can opt for white marble flooring and paint the remaining walls white to make your lobby appear more spacious. Accentuate with golden lights or furniture pieces and you will have successfully designed a striking double-height entrance lobby.
2. Play With Color and Texture
Colored or patterned tiles, wall claddings, or even paint can be used to make a double-height wall pop. See how this large, dominating wood-paneled wall adds contrast and intrigue to the overall space. You can also accentuate your design with smart lighting designs. Installing spotlights just above the accent wall helps to highlight the design and also marks the focal point of the room.
3. Go With An Experimental Design
If you have some extra space on your living room wall, why not experiment with it? Take a cue from this eye-catching double-height accent wall designed by Reflective Practices. The fluted panels highlight the volume, while the abstract art piece fills the volume to add a sense of cohesiveness to the space. And despite the use of multiple materials, the space does not look cluttered but has a charming dynamic feel to it.
4. Put Up A Statement-making Wall Art On Display
One of the simplest ways to fill the void left by an empty and tall wall and add depth to your room is by adding a larger-than-life wall art. If you cannot find one that covers an ample portion of your wall, you can instead opt for decorating it with multiple smaller wall art pieces. Curios, carved frames, or a cluster of colorful plates are good options too. Hanging them in a symmetrical pattern will help you induce a sense of cleanliness or can even place them in a stylized format – whichever you fancy.
Pro tip: A wall art should always be placed at an average eye level. In simpler terms, the center of the wall art should be about 58 inches from ground level irrespective of the height of your wall.
5. Create A Focal Point
Having a focal point in a large space with a tall wall instantly accentuates the look and feel of the space and makes your double-height wall pop. You can opt for a different material for creating the focal point – colored or patterned tiles, wall panels, a different colored paint, etc. And if you’re specifically looking to make a grand impression with your wall design, metals like brass, bronze or copper can be an ideal pick.
6. Stick To A Minimal Design
Doesn’t this concrete finished double-height living room instantly evoke a sense of calmness and serenity? The subtly textured wall paired with the vintage rug along with the colorful furniture and furnishing makes this living room look fabulous. And yet, despite all these elements, the room does not look overwhelming at all. The carefully chosen design elements add the final touch to the room as well as the wall thus creating a cohesive and beautiful space. If you’re looking to craft artisanal concrete walls, here’s a great resource.

9. Design With Artisanal Wall Panels
A double-height lobby runs the risk of looking cold and clinical. Bring warmth into the decor with artisanal concrete wall panels that reflect the beauty of nature and by integrating some indoor plants. Warm accents or table lights can help accentuate the welcoming feeling. Also, introduce colorful accents via soft furnishings like cushion covers or a colorful sofa.
10. Pick A Grand Theme
Marble as a material has a grand look and feel to it. And you can never go wrong by using it to design your interior double-height wall. Add a statement chandelier, accent lights, metallic decor pieces, and velvet furnishings to design a space full of class, grandeur, and sophistication.
The best part about double-height walls is that they allow for extra storage in the form of closed cabinets, open shelves, or wooden shelves. So, if you’re not keen on having a designer wall, you can always opt for storage units built into the wall.
