Murals are one form of decorative wallpaper you may want to add to your home. While murals have always been popular in homes as a main feature in the space, they were usually painted. Today, you can get the same look with much less the work and far less the cost of hiring a professional painter to design a mural for you. For those who are looking for a way to add a focal point to a room, these may be one of the best ways to do so.
A mural wall covering may work in many areas of your home, depending on what the design of the mural is. Still, do not limit yourself. You are sure to find ways to add a theme, design, color or other aspect to the space using murals. Here are a few ideas on how to use this form of decorative wallpaper.
For your dining room, you could create a mural on an odd wall that showcases a fine dining bistro. You could add vines that wrap around the room to create a unique look to the space.
In the kitchen, murals can be used to make statements, especially if you use the type of mural that offers fun or inspirational sayings.
Use a fun beach theme mural for that large, empty wall in your bathroom. Add a few accessories with the beach theme to the room to complete the look.
Perhaps one of the most common areas to use murals is in a child’s room. You can easily do this by adding many fun themes. Does your child love a special character? You may want to decorate their room around an alphabet theme. Or, have a full wall mural done on one of their walls that represents a forest or magical kingdom. Here you can get as creative and as unique as you would like to.
If you are considering the purchase of wallpaper murals, there are several things to think about.
Always measure the space you plan to add the mural to before you buy it. This way, you do not have to worry about buying the wrong size. Both the height and width of the space should be taken into consideration.
Choose a mural that you will love for a long time. Some of these can be more expensive that you may realize. If you are unsure if you will like it, hang a picture of it in that space for a few days to see how much you like it later.
Some murals are harder to install than others. Read the directions first.
As you can tell, there are many ways to use decorative wallpaper murals within the home. The key is to be unique.
