Do You Really Need a Mural at Home?

Let this list help you decide


Whenever we visit a new house, there's always that one thing that catches our attention. It can be a captivating furniture piece, a stunning vignette, or an accent wall that sets the home apart from the rest. If you've always wanted to transform your walls into a unique work of art, you may want to consider having a mural done. Can't seem to make a final decision? We've got insights that may just help you:

It adds depth to a small space

A small room can look spacious with the right mural. Try adding a mural of a pathway or a bridge to create an illusion of depth. You can also install  track lights or multidirectional recessed lighting near your mural to illuminate the space and make it stand out.

It can work as a headboard

Many of us do not have headboards and if you want one, a relaxing mural depicting nature, the beach, or even your dream destination is an ideal option. Let it cover your entire wall to create a statement in the space.

Use it to define a space

It's always challenging to define areas in a small space but with a lovely mural, you can separate one nook from the rest. For example, if your nursery is found in the bedroom, you can use a mural featuring mountains or kiddie prints to liven up the wall. This is a welcome break from the usual cartoon characters that we often see in kids' spaces.
