There’s a good reason that DuraDecor’s Collection of Peel and Stick Vinyl Planks has earned the name “Weekend Warrior”: You can literally transform any space that needs some extra pop over the course of a weekend–  and without hiring professional help.

You don’t need to mess around with any sticky glues or adhesives either. These peel-and-stick vinyl planks use a rigorously tested adhesive that’s strong enough and specifically designed for wall applications. That’s why today, we’re looking specifically at ways that crafting an eye-catching accent wall will add all the style and none of the hassle.

Accent walls are the perfect way to add color, warmth, and dimension, enhance visual interest, and create textural contrast. Also, accent walls look expensive, but a Weekend Warrior accent wall is not. You can have this look without maxing out the budget and craft it yourself.

A perfect design element for any room you can think of, we also love the fact that accent walls can turn forgotten transitional areas or wall in-sets into a fashion-forward conversation starter. That’s exactly how you maximize the space in your place.

First, check out our “How To Install DuraDecor™ Weekend Warrior Collection” YouTube video. It could not be easier to do this project yourself and our DuraDecor YouTube channel has all the helpful vids, tips, and best practices you need to know.  Learn about the tools needed, wall prep, gaps, and more to ensure successful results:

Now, let’s look at some of our absolute favorite Weekend Warrior accent walls that can provide just the inspiration you need to come up with an amazing personal vision:

Accent Wall Patterns – Just like you can use a patterned plank installation to give your floors a designer look, an ordinary wall will turn into a chic artistic statement with a thoughtful plank application. We are loving these chevron and herringbone-inspired accent wall patterns that bring in all the visual interest! From the cool greys of Iced Barnwood (left) to the one-of-a-kind look of Natural Hickory (center) and striking-yet-subtle appeal of Roughcut Lumber Siena (right), these accent walls elevate rooms to no end:

Bedroom Accent Walls – Using the gorgeous, realistic wood texture on walls is a no-brainer when it comes to transforming bedrooms. The rustic tones of Harvest Distressed (below left) give regular shelves in a child’s bedroom instant fashionable appeal. We can’t get over how the Roughcut Lumber Greige accent wall (below right) makes this bedroom feel like a quaint boutique hotel or bed-and-breakfast:

Bathrooms Accent Walls – Your bathroom is where you get ready for the world every morning and unwind every night before getting your rest. For these two important reasons, and also because we just want each room to be amazing, we highly recommend creating a design that’s as calming as possible. A Weekend Warrior accent wall is a fabulous way to turn your bathroom into a relaxing, spa-like retreat. This Blazed Barnwood accent wall (below) is as elegant as it is cozy, and brings in all the soothing vibes:

Maybe you’re not ready to take on a flooring installation just yet, but an accent wall with peel-and-stick planks is an ideal DIY project to sharpen your design eye, grow your hands-on skills, and level-up in confidence.
