A geo accent wall is often created in living rooms, especially over a fireplace to make it a centerpiece. A geo accent wall can be created in a home office for an eye-catchy touch and bolder design. Kitchens usually feature a geo accent wall that is a backsplash at the same time, and a bathroom may show off such a wall over the sinks or in the shower.
