Murals Wallpaper are a UK company that specialise in larger than life wallpaper.
We’ve all heard of turning a wall in a room into a feature wall; this is where three walls are typically left blank and the remaining one has some outlandish design on it.
Well, the new way to make a feature wall pop is to put up a life size mural.
Now you may think this is the stuff of children’s bedrooms but think again.
Wallpaper scenes include cityscapes, forest dwellings, beaches, artist’s famous works, even underwater and space. You can instantly change the feeling and atmosphere of a room with a mural wallpaper.
Murals Wallpaper is created using three different paper types, light, medium and heavyweight.
The wallpaper murals are delivered to you in horizontal rolls, which you then paste as you would normal wallpaper onto the wall.
Here are our tips for creating a special feature wall using mural wallpaper.
Living rooms should be areas of calm, places where you can relax, so softer colours and natural prints work best here. Try forests, sunsets, and traditional works of art or street scenes.
