Bring Life to Your Walls with Wall Murals

Looking to give a room a quick makeover? A wall mural offers an easy yet dramatic way to transform any space. Keep reading for a comprehensive guide to using murals in your home or office.

What is a Wall Mural Exactly?

A wall mural is a large format image, artwork or design that is applied directly to a wall. Murals come in a variety of materials, including:

  • Vinyl – peel and stick murals printed on durable vinyl substrates
  • Wallpaper – Murals printed on traditional wallpaper backing
  • Fiber – Murals on non-woven, textile-based backings
  • Tile – Made up of individual ceramic tiles mounted together
  • Paint – Hand-painted artwork directly on the wall

Unlike framed art or posters, a mural stretches across a large portion or entire wall to create an eye-catching decorative focal point.

The Meaning and History of Wallpapers

The word “mural” comes from the Latin word “murus” meaning “wall”. Murals have been used throughout history to communicate stories, ideas, and messages in public spaces.

Some famous murals through the ages include:

  • Cave paintings dating back over 40,000 years
  • Ancient Egyptian tomb paintings
  • Pompeii frescoes from Ancient Rome
  • Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling
  • Diego Rivera’s political murals during the Mexican Mural Movement
  • WPA-era murals commissioned during the US Great Depression

Today, murals are enjoying renewed popularity both as public art and as interior design elements.

Uses of Wall Murals at Home or Work

Wall murals can transform any space by adding color, drama, and interest. Popular placements include:

  • Living room – A striking mural behind the sofa creates a focal point. Floral, landscape, abstract, and cityscape designs work well.
  • Bedroom – Soothing nature scenes, silhouetted trees, or galaxy murals promote tranquility.
  • Workspace – Motivational quotes or serene landscapes reduce stress.
  • Hallways or stairs – Long vertical murals draw the eye to make cramped areas feel expanded.
  • Dining room – Food-inspired murals of wine, fruits, or herbs liven up the space.
  • Kid’s rooms – Playful alphabet letters, animals, or storybook scenes stimulate young minds.

Murals are also perfect for sprucing up rented apartments, dorm rooms, basements, or other temporary spaces since many today are removable.

Painted Wall Murals vs Printed

While painted and printed murals achieve a similar look, there are some key differences:

Painted Wallpapers

  • Paint is applied directly on the wall
  • Requires an experienced muralist
  • Completely custom design
  • Permanent installation
  • More expensive

Printed Wallpapers

  • Printed on materials mounted on the wall
  • More DIY-friendly installation
  • Choose from pre-made designs or customize
  • Many are removable/repositionable
  • More budget-friendly

Are Wall Murals Considered Art?

Absolutely! Murals are very much considered an art form. They have a long, rich history dating back millennia as meaningful works of human artistic expression. Today, vibrantly painted exterior building murals transform urban landscapes. Interior murals also showcase original artwork, custom designs, or high quality fine art reproductions.

FAQ

  1. What are wall murals?
    • Wall murals are large-scale artworks or graphics applied directly to walls, often transforming ordinary spaces into vibrant and captivating environments.
  2. How are the murals installed?
    • Wall murals typically come in adhesive panels or rolls. You apply them similarly to wallpaper—by ensuring the wall is clean and smooth, applying an adhesive (if not pre-applied), and then carefully placing the mural on the wall.
  3. Can I apply the mural on any wall surface?
    • For best results, the wall should be smooth, clean, and free of imperfections. Textured or damp walls may not allow the mural to adhere properly.
  4. How long do wall murals last?
    • With proper care and depending on the environment, indoor wall murals can last several years. External factors such as sunlight exposure and humidity can affect the mural’s longevity.
  5. Can I easily remove the mural without damaging the wall?
    • Yes, most modern wall murals are designed to be removable without causing damage. However, it’s essential to follow the manufacturer’s removal instructions.
  6. Can I customize the size and design of the mural?
    • Many mural providers offer customization options, allowing you to choose the size, design, and sometimes even the colors to fit your space perfectly.
  7. Are the materials used for the murals safe?
    • Reputable mural providers use non-toxic inks and materials that are safe for both residential and commercial environments.
  8. How do I clean and maintain my wall mural?
    • Most murals can be wiped down with a damp cloth. Avoid using harsh chemicals or scrubbing too hard, as this might damage the print.
  9. What’s the difference between a wall mural and wallpaper?
    • While both are applied to walls, wallpapers typically have repeating patterns, while murals are large-scale designs or images meant to cover an entire wall or large portion without repetition.
  10. Can I install a mural in a bathroom or other high-humidity areas?
    • While many murals are moisture-resistant, it’s essential to check with the manufacturer. Ensure proper ventilation in high-humidity areas to prolong the mural’s life.

Strategic Mural Placement

A few tips on placement:

  • For living rooms, place murals behind seating to create an eye-catching backdrop.
  • In bedrooms, center murals behind the headboard to frame the bed.
  • In hallways and small spaces, elongated murals draw the eye to make areas feel expanded.
  • Allow ample breathing room around the mural. Avoid cluttering the area too close.
