What to remember when choosing a mural

When choosing a mural, there are a couple of things you should consider. First of all, check the wallpaper on which the image is printed. It should be durable, waterproof, and attractively present the chosen design. Currently many companies print murals on non-woven wallpapers, which also provide a suitable insulating layer.

What kind of design should you choose?

The design you select should depend on the size of your room and the style of your apartment. If the room is small, choose a design with a spatial motif or in bright colours.

All these designs can be found in the wall murals category.

If your apartment has large, bright interiors, you will have more freedom in choosing a theme for your mural. You can choose a completely abstract pattern such as vector graphics or a 3D image, or you can go with classic motifs such as the very popular wave pattern from Japanese woodcuts.

An interesting wall mural category is panoramas of big cities such as New York, Hong Kong or San Francisco. Such wallpapers are especially recommended for modern, simple flats, whose owner would like to give them a bit of subtle urban elegance.
