Mural wallpaper designs are a great way for creating a modern feature wall for your space. It brings interest to a room, adds texture and creates a focal point that can be used in homes or businesses and change the mood of the space. The options are unlimited, the designs are neverending - you can go for maps, landscape scenes, kids, textures and even personalize it with your photos.

Use the mural on one stand-out feature wall to create an impactful statement or alternatively use all over for a wrap-around feel.

What is a mural wallpaper?

A mural wallpaper is a large, printed image that covers the entire wall like traditional wallpaper. However, unlike traditional wallpaper, a mural wallpaper typically features a unique or artistic design rather than a repeating pattern.

What is the difference between a mural art and mural wallpaper?

  1. Murals are typically painted directly onto a wall, while wallpaper is a printed or woven design that is adhered to the wall.
  2. The process and materials used for creating a mural art are often more time-intensive and expensive compared to those used for making a mural wallpaper.

Tips for using a mural wallpaper to create a modern feature wall

Before you start planning your feature wall, there are a few key tips you should keep in mind. Use this checklist to make sure you create the perfect modern feature wall ideas:

1. Decide on the Wall

Wallpapering an entire room with wall murals isn’t just a huge commitment, it’s a big and daring design move. If you want to incorporate some color or a bold pattern, start small by choosing to wallpaper an accent wall. Wallpapering just one wall of a room can infuse personality and flavor. A bold accent wallpaper will capture attention while putting your tastes on display.

2. Look for an unobstructed wall

Having a smooth and clean wall is key. Choose a wall that is unobstructed and clean (e.g without windows and doors), to avoid having to crop off key elements of the mural during installation.

3. Opt for a made-to-measure wall mural

The first step when getting a wall mural printed is choosing your design. You get to specify the size that best fits your situation and scale the mural to your wall size. 

4. Think of your end goal

Before picking a mural wallpaper design, consider what you want to achieve within a room or space.

  • Are you looking to add more height? Vertica Designs such as stripes pattern wallpaper make walls feel taller and ceilings feel higher.
  • Do you want to make a room feel wider? Light, airy colors and horizontal patterns help achieve this.
  • Want a surprising element? Consider adding a wall mural on the ceiling! Not only is it unexpected, but ceiling wall murals add contrast and a sense of playfulness.

5. Consider the size of your wall

It is crucial to think about space planning and the size of the wall. When determining what size to order, keep in mind that a full wall mural is going to offer you the greatest impact and is ultimately the best value for your money. A half wall paint is great if you have furniture flushed against the wall and want to avoid the mural getting blocked.

With a little creativity and some planning, you can achieve a modern feature wall with mural wallpaper. Mural Wallpapers are definitely a great way to incorporate texture and patterns at an affordable price. Check out some wallpaper designs to create a modern feature wall below!
