Wall Mural Designs For Your Home

Every homeowner wants the interior of their home to look as nice as possible. One cool way to add visual interest to the interior of your home is by putting in a wall mural. This innovative wall covering is much more appealing than a simple paint job. Here are some key points to think about before getting a wall mural installed in your home.


Wall murals can be any artwork or visually interesting graphic that is painted, pasted, or otherwise affixed to a wall. When discussing wall murals for residential homes, however, the term typically refers to wallpaper that has an eye-catching design, unlike standard wallpaper, which is not intended to be a focal point. 

Design Tips

When you are considering what type of image or images you want on the mural, it's important to consider how it will fit in with the room where it's placed. You want the mural to complement the room, so do not choose a mural design that clashes with the colors of the room itself. Another design consideration is the size of the room. For example, if you intend to place the mural in a small room, consider a landscape forest image, which can give the illusion that the room is bigger than it actually is.

If you want a calming and relaxing design to come home to after a long day at work, an ocean or beach image can be very calming.

If you have a special interest that you want to highlight, think about selecting a design that features your interest. For instance, if you love to travel, one great idea is to choose a wall mural with imprinted with maps of the world. If you are a bird-watcher, consider a design that features some of your favorite bird species.

Another terrific idea is to have a wall mural custom made from a favorite photo. You simply send the photo to a wall mural design service and let them do the rest. If you choose this option, keep in mind that you will need to send in a high-resolution photo for best results. The photo will be blown up many times its normal size and if a high-resolution photo is not used, the image could end up blurry when it's transferred to the mural wallpaper.
