Wall Murals and Textured Wallpaper for your Home

Wall murals and Textured wallpaper, a thing of the past or a perfect “Get-Away” in your home~

There are times when a beautiful interior house paint color can give you that perfect “accent wall”.  But occasionally, you can sit in your favorite chair and let your “Wall” take you away.

While choosing a wall mural that compliments the interior of your home, you also want one that gives you a sense of excitement, relaxation, or one that brings back a wonderful memory.  The above Dandelion wall mural stretches my viewing across the wall. I continually look from the bottom left to the upper right of the wall as I watch the Dandelion seeds take flight!  There is no need to add pictures or other decorations when using murals.  In a way, this could be cost effective too for the budget-minded decorator ~ everybody loves that!

Of course, I would add Post-It notes all over this World Map wall mural with names of places I would love to travel to!  And since the notes would be yellow, I would have to add a few yellow pillows or flowers nearby to add a little color.  Or come to think of it, you could tap in horseshoe nails in place of Post-It notes and tie yellow twine from nail to nail…okay, maybe a little too much fun can be spent on this one.

The wall murals to the right add height and give you a few good colors to draw from.  My personal fav:  Give a quick click on the Main Street Mural and take a walk…

Personalization is obviously one-of-a-kind, therefore, they add that special touch to your home.

While I don’t think I would choose one of my children as a “larger than life scene” (tho I do love them, dearly), I would like to have a wall mural  of a vintage family photo or of my parents ranch surrounded by their 75 acres.  Those would bring back sweet memories and maybe a little manure smell…hmmm!

Textured Wallpaper

If you are wanting something a little  more than just a brightly painted accent wall, add a little texture underneath.  Sometimes a room just needs that extra dimension. It’s also a great choice when you need to cover a wall with hairline cracks or patches.  Textured wallpaper can cover a multitude of problems!

 Here are a few Do-It-Yourself tips for generic wall mural/paper installation.

  • We recommend choosing a wall with limited reflective light when using murals.
  • Once the wall is chosen, remove all wall plates, lighting, etc.  Fill holes and cracks with spackling and sand until smooth.
  • Wipe all corners and wall surfaces with a lint free cloth.
  • Most mural installations will need to have a glossy surfaced wall sanded or primed to create a non-porous/non-slick surface.  We also recommend choosing a neutral colored prime/paint color so a contrast color is not seen through the mural.

Be certain to read the manufacturers directions and inspect your mural/wallpaper thoroughly prior to application.  On a rare occasion you may find a “run” on the paper.  Meaning, the print or texture has a missed area in it where the texture or print is missing.  Therefore, it is always a good idea to purchase an extra role of wallpaper…just in case.
