How to Choose the Right Wall Mural Design

A wall mural can completely transform a room. Wall murals come in a wide variety of designs which means that there are plenty of choices out there. Despite the fact that there are so many options, making the right choice can seem like a tall order. Here are some tips to help you find that perfect mural for any wall.


Browse and sample

If you are looking for some kind of inspiration, you will find plenty online! Just run a search for images of wall murals to get an idea of how the designs look once fitted. It’s one thing to look at a mural design. It’s a whole different story when you see it in a room with furniture. Sometimes the colors on your computer screen do not reflect the true colors of the mural. This is why it’s important to either visit the showroom or ask for a sample before making your choice.

Color selection

Just like any work of art, when choosing a mural, it’s important that the colors in the design are also used in other parts of the room. For example, if there is a mainly green color scheme, make sure that there are other green elements in the room. If the room is already quite colorful, you could opt for a black-and-white or greyscale mural so that you don’t create overwhelming chaos in the room.

Style selection

When choosing the style, it can be easy to go with whatever is trendy at the time. Since you don’t want your wall mural to go out of fashion too soon, you should look for something that’s timeless. At the same time, you should choose a style that reflects your personality. This way, you will never get tired of it.

Smaller rooms

Even small rooms can be decorated with the right murals. Take care not to choose dark colors since this will make the room look even smaller. Lighter colors and oversized designs can help the room look more spacious.

All 4 walls or just 1

Murals are often used to create accent walls but some designs can be used on all four walls of the room. This is a great idea if you want to give your room a particular theme. For example, if you have a subtle design of clouds and the blue sky, this can work on all the walls. If the design is more urban, you are better off covering a single wall. Accent walls can include striking designs with bold colors. The goal is to grab attention as soon as one enters the room.

Mural location

If you are covering all four walls, then this won’t be an issue. If you are creating an accent wall with a stylish mural, then the location is key. Start by walking into the room a few times to determine where your eyes go first. This is the wall you will need to decorate. In other words, the walls that are adjacent to the door are not likely the ones that should be your main focus. Rather, the wall opposite the door is your best bet. In addition, you need to make sure that there’s not too much furniture or clutter along this wall. You want to leave it as empty as possible so that the mural can be truly appreciated.


You will notice that different murals have different themes. From tropical and ocean waves to busy cities and abstract designs – there are plenty of amazing themes. Again, consider all of the factors mentioned above before choosing a specific theme.

Quality murals

Make sure that you take the time to shop around and look for wall murals that are of the best quality. At the end of the day, the last thing anyone wants is to have to replace a wall mural too soon. In addition, if you are not completely confident in your ability to install the mural yourself, you should ask about professional installation.

Have fun!

Don’t forget to have fun! This really is a fun process and you may even find that you will choose a completely different design than you initially imagined. If you are adding a mural to your child’s room, why not get them involved too? After all, they’re the ones who are going to be spending their time in it, so they should be the ones deciding on the design.
