A wall mural is a great way to turn your boring, lifeless bedroom into a serene sanctuary that inspires and motivates you to get out of bed in the morning.
But whilst murals are becoming increasingly popular, it is important to make the right choice. Getting the wrong mural is a decision you will regret every morning and night.
So before you dive in – here are some tips to help you select the perfect mural for you.
Matching The Colors
A mural is the focal point of your room, but it needs to match the rest of the room too. Think about what color your walls are (or what color you plan to paint them). Make sure your mural matches and doesn’t clash. If you pick the right color for the rest of the room your mural will be enhanced.
Matching The Décor
It doesn’t end with the color of the walls, think about the décor too, if you have brightly colored lampshades or rugs, you might need to consider how well these will go with your mural and whether they will need replacing. For instance, a bright green rug against a sandy beach scene might not fit quite right.
Matching Your Personality
Ok, so we’ve matched to the walls and the furniture, but what about you? There are so many options to choose from: ocean waves, sunny beaches, space, fantasy, forests etc…
Before you jump in and go for the most fantastic scene you can find, remember that this is something you will see a lot. It is better to pick the scene that will be enjoyable long term and not necessarily the one with the most wow factor right now.
Also keep in mind that you will be seeing this in the morning when you wake up – so whilst you may love everything to do with the sea, it is the first image you want in the morning (or the last at night)?
This is all personal preference of course, but these are things to consider before you take the plunge, because once you decide, you’re stuck with it, for a while at least.
There is plenty to think about, but choosing the right wall mural to go in your room will ensure that you enjoy many a relaxed night and an inspired morning. The possibilities are endless…
