Add Character to Your Room with Wall Murals

Wall murals are one of the best and easiest ways to add real character to any room in your home or office.

Wallpapering a room or painting the walls can sometimes appear limited if you’re looking to create an impact but with the vast choice of wall murals available your artistic nature can run wild and if you get tired of the wall mural you’ve chosen it’s simply a matter of peeling it off and replacing it with another.

Here’s a video that will show you just how easy it is to hang a wall mural; just remember the key to a fantastic finish is to take your time and as the video suggests it’s a good idea if you have someone to help you.

So what types of wall mural designs are available?  The answer is that if you can think of it the chances are there are wall murals to fit your design criteria.

Take a look at the fantastic examples below and let your imagination run wild.  Remember decorating any room, whether you’re hanging wallpaper, applying paint or fitting wall murals, is all about you and what you want; there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to interior design as whatever you decide should fit in with what you like and something ultimately that suits your style and personality.

Before you dismiss this you should consider that art, in any form, is an expression of an individual and therefore graffiti is an art form.  Notice how well it fits in with a clean modern interior which ultimately breaks up the stark white and adds a clear focal point to the room.

What you’re looking for is continuity within the design so that elements you include blend together and to lift a rooms design there are few better ways than installing wall murals.
