I want to change the color of a single wall in my room to create an accent wall. How can I change the color of just a single wall?
The Material Painter can be used to paint a single wall of a room by using the Material Painter Component Mode..
If you are in a 3D camera view, selecting the wall will select the room first. This can be verified by looking at the left of the Status Bar at the bottom of the screen. If the room highlights first, click on the Next edit button, or press the Tab key on your keyboard, to select just the wall itself.
In some cases, such as when an exterior wall runs the length of several rooms, you may not want to change the material of the spanning wall, or you may want to apply different colors to several different sections of the same wall to create a striped effect. You can use Wall Breaks to accomplish both of these tasks.
If you are in a 3D camera view, return to your 2D floor plan view for the following steps.
Another solution would be to draw a Wall Material Region in the area that you want to display differently, though this adds more than just a color to the pre-existing wall surface, and is better suited for facade walls. See the Related Article below for information on Material Regions.
