What can a mural do for my space?
Everyone has a wall that they have no idea what to do with, a problematic blank space, a large blank canvas, a wall for which you cannot seem to find a purpose. It’s blankness is an ocean of possibilities but perhaps it seems too daunting to decide what to do with it. A mural feature wall is the perfect way to give any room a wow factor, a great way to introduce a key colour into a neutral space while adding texture and interest to your room.
Look no further than MuralsWallpaper to transform your space with style. MuralsWallpaper offer an incredible selection of murals, patterns and photo wallpapers to suit all ages and styles. Challenging the boundaries of what wallpaper can do by offering pioneering designs, their wallpaper murals are designed to complement any home decor style. We chose this Adhere, concrete effect paper to create a dramatic wall that adds a look of texture and depth against a neutral colour palette. The mural features a faux cement texture effect that will give your wall a rustic yet stylish appearance. This wallpaper offers a subtle and neutral block colour style, which is significantly enhanced by its rough faux cement appearance.
How Do I order mine?
The ordering process could not be more simple! We simply measured our wall and added the measurements into the calculator to create our custom fit mural. The design team make the mural to fit any size or shape of wall. Once you send the requirements to the design team, they send a mock-up of your wall mural before they produce it. The mural arrived quickly and well packaged.
Was it hard to hang?
After some bad experiences in the past, my husband was a bit sceptical about using any kind of wallpaper or mural. After reading about the simplistic process of using a MuralsWallpaper and falling in love with their fabulous designs I set upon my mission to change his mind! Of course, my powers of persuasion worked their magic and he agreed! The Mural arrived promptly and packaged in a nifty tube to keep it safe and pristine. Included in the tube was a fantastic step by step guide which was easy to follow and made hanging the mural an absolute breeze! The whole installation was faultless and we are thrilled with our mural. Here’s how we did it….
How we did it
The first steps we took were in preparation, we ensured the wall was smooth, clean and completely dry. Our wall was imperfect with old plaster, but we took steps to ensure that the wall was filled where needed and smooth from sanding. This handy guide on the MuralsWallpaper website helped us identify how best to prepare our wall surface for the mural. To begin the installation, we rolled out a section of paper and used the handy cutting lines provided to create our first drop. The drops are numbered and roll out staggered in a way that the tops and bottoms of the drops match. We then brushed on ‘paste the wall’ paste ready to apply the first strip. Unlike so many wallpapers, the paper was thick and robust so there was no fear of tearing while fitting. You can be assured that all of MuralsWallpaper murals are created using British paper sourced from FSC regulated forests. They also use water- based links so are environmentally friendly. Every wallpaper is made to order which is great for the environment, keeping waste to an absolute minimum.
We had cables in place to fit wall lights once the wallpaper installation was complete, we made a small slit in the paper to pull these cables through carefully. We repeated the process across the whole wall and could not believe how quickly we finished, the whole wall took less than an hour and a half including a tea break!
As you can see the mural creates the perfect feature backdrop for our living space. I added hints of blue in my accessories to compliment the colour of the wallpaper. I am thrilled with the finished look and can’t fault our experience with MuralsWallpaper. From the ordering process to the installation, MuralsWallpaper truly have made creating unique and stylish looks super simple and affordable. With a fabulous range of designs from funky florals to textured looks there is something for every space. I hope you love it as much as we do!
