Style edit: Make a statement with murals

If you’re looking to add instant impact to a room, why not experiment with a wall panel or mural? Featuring large-scale prints with a single repeat, murals are an easy, fuss-free way to make a bold design statement.


Abstract murals

Abstract murals are great for adding drama to a space. A modern twist on the 'feature wall', abstract wallpaper murals create a focal point within a room, helping to draw the eye to an area you want to highlight. In a bedroom, try a wall panel behind your headboard or in a dining room, why not create a striking backdrop for your dining table?

Whether your design features one large motif, a trailing design or an abstract landscape, make sure to keep the rest of the room fairly minimal to avoid it looking over-cluttered.

Realistic murals

Realistic murals cleverly trick the eye into thinking a room has a design feature that isn't really there. Using a textured-effect wallpaper mural can add depth and intrigue, creating the illusion of wood panelling, marble or even tiling without the hassle or investment of the real thing. Alternatively, landscape murals can be used to create or enhance a view. For homes on the coast, why not try an ocean scene or, to make a real statement, go big and bold with a view of the mountains.

Children's murals

Murals work brilliantly in children's rooms as their large-scale designs let their imaginations run wild. Kids will love immersing themselves in whatever scene they choose, whether it's a wild jungle, busy city or enchanted forest, it's a great way to enhance their playtime. Best of all, if you're creating a feature wall with your mural, you'll only have to paste one wall rather than the whole room.
