Change Your Room With A Wall Mural

There was a time when the phrase 'wall mural' would be most likely to evoke visions of Hilda Ogden's infamous 'mural' in the British TV series Coronation Street. During the eighties, the imposing mountain vista, crammed into a tiny back room, amused the nation with its over-the-top kitsch and flying ducks (one upside down, of course). Thankfully, time has moved on, and these days you don't have to go far to find something far more appealing to the eye.



Modern murals are an excellent way to brighten up a bare expanse of wall, perhaps behind a sofa, over a bed or in a bathroom. They present a unique opportunity to personalise your space, as there are a wealth of different colours and designs to choose from. Whatever trend you want to emulate, there will be a mural which reflects the style, or tone, you are looking for.

You can encapsulate your own design flair easily, by picking out a colourway to reflect the palette of the room, or even use the space to preserve a special memory, by choosing a landscape that is special to you. Such as a familiar holiday view, or a picture from your favourite restaurant.




The process of applying wall murals, or decals, has also improved a lot over the years. Large murals are usually split into sections, to make them easier to handle, and some even come with reusable adhesive such as PIXERStick, from Pixersize.com, which means you can adjust, or even remove your mural, should you choose to. It can then be stored on its original backing paper, until it is needed elsewhere, or simply rehung in a new spot, giving a different look to the room instantly.


There are many advantages to a wall mural, but the main one is speed. If you need to refresh a room quickly, a mural achieves so much more than a coat of paint, in a much shorter time and with hardly any mess. You don't need to cover the furniture, you don't need to wait for it to dry, there's no lingering smell and the finished effect is far more striking and eye catching.

Tell me, would you use a wall mural to brighten up your home? If so what would your theme be?

  1. My husband and I just redecorated our kitchen and debated a wall mural instead of a wallpaper feature wall, but ultimately opted for the wallpaper, but it's very much the same effect!
