Using Murals in your Home Design

Using Murals in your Home Design
Do you have an empty wall that you don’t know what to do with? Consider it a blank canvas - one way to add drama to any room is to include a mural.
Since the beginning of time artists have painted directly onto walls and ceilings in order to express their unique creativity, innermost thoughts and document important moments in time. 
Nowadays murals can be made up of paint, transfers (decal), wallpaper, glass, stone and even tiles.

Murals can be found in public places, interior designs and in outdoor spaces within your home. Sometimes realistic and sometimes abstract but always adding a permanent statement with bold, dramatic effect and elegance, that can certainly add artwork that everyone will be talking about.

Murals are perfect for filling an otherwise large blank wall, to frame or highlight areas in a room, such as, above beds to create a headboard or creating focal points within rooms such as splash backs, room divides or fireplace walls.

Tile Murals have been around since ancient tiles and are still just as wonderful today as the original mosaics of Roman times. Made of hard wearing porcelain or ceramic they can be used in many more delicate areas of the home such as kitchens, wet rooms, splash backs and outdoor areas.

Murals can offer a magical sense of mystique to any interior. With the right choices and materials they can offer an escapism difficult to achieve in any other way.
