Accent walls are a great way to add a little beach flair to small spaces without committing to the expense and hassle of tackling the whole room. Paint your built-ins an eye-catching color, such as this dining room cabinet’s vibrant shade of turquoise. The bold hue will highlight the overlooked space, and your favorite china and fine accessories will pop against the bright backdrop.
Tip: Order your paint in a matte finish to keep the color amped up but the shine factor to a minimum.
