Wall Murals

by lakeerieartists

Wall Murals are the perfect solution to cover a very large blank wall or for situations where you do not want to spend a lot of money, like a college apartment or dorm room.

If you are looking to cover a large wall space, but do not want to spend a lot of time and money on wallpaper, painting, or custom wall decor, a good alternative is buying one or two ready made wall murals that will draw the attention and focus in the room, and add a lot of color and interest as well.

It used to be that wall murals could only be ordered as a custom painting on a wall which involved time, materials, and labor of an individual artist. You can still buy wall murals like that for a room that you know you will not be moving out of for a long time, or a commercial business that needs an entire accent wall.

However, in many situations, you may find that you prefer a less permanent solution to a wall decoration, especially in the case of a child's room, teenager's room, or college dorm room or apartment. In these type of cases, where decor changes happen often, a preprinted wall mural is a much better and more affordable choice.

Cover Large Walls with Wall Murals and Save Money on Home Decor

Wall Murals Do Not Need to Be Framed

Frames are often the most expensive part of hanging art.

Wall murals are not meant to be framed.  They are meant to be hung on the wall as is.  This saves quite a bit of money from your wall decor, because framing a large picture is very expensive.

Wall murals are also a more casual look, as they become part of your wall in look, and yet create a lot of interest in the decor of the room.  They can set the tone for the entire tone depending on what style of print you choose for the mural.

I have listed just a few categories of wall murals on this page, but for more options, just click through the links here.  Some of the main categories are photography, fine art, celebrities, music, animation, children's art, animals, architecture, landscapes, cityscapes, and waterfront scenes.

Decorating an Office or Boardroom with Wall Murals

Wall murals can give an office an expensive, high class look without being expensive.

If you run a business that needs a classy look, one that inspires confidence in you and your service, adding wall murals to your office walls, hallways, and meeting rooms is a good way to look professional and businesslike without a large expense.  These are also a good investment if you rent your office space, and need items that can be hung and removed easily without a lot of wall damage.

You can measure the amount of room that you have to hang the mural, then check the dimensions for one that fits perfectly behind your desk in your office.  These murals will ship directly to you, and you can hang them yourself, futher saving money on expenses.

Decorating the Room of a Teenager

Always a challenge

Teenagers can be a challenge in many ways, but one way you can allow your teen to have imput in their own lives is choosing a wall mural to decorate their bedroom.  Teens are notorious for changing their mind on styles, and likes and dislikes, but you can accomodate their changes easily by letting them choose a wall mural that fits their current state of being, and when they decide that they are too old for that image, they can get a new one without much work or expense on your part as a beleaguered parent.

Wall Murals are Great Wall Decor for Dorm Rooms or College Apartment

Easy to hang, easy to remove

Most college students move every year to a new dorm room or college apartment.  For this reason alone, wall murals are the perfect choice for decorating walls of dorm rooms or apartments.  They are inexpensive, easy to hang, and easy to take down and rehang elsewhere.

Often dorm rooms are boring, white washed walls that can feel like they are closing in a homesick college student.  A wall mural will liven up that room right away, without causing too much damage to the rental's walls or breaking any dorm rules.  This can make the difference for a college student away from home.  There aren't too many college students who like bare white walls.

I painted a tiger face on a wall in my studio that worked out really well.

Wall murals are great for decorating. I used one for my teen son's room and he and his friends loved it! (They also look great in photos!)

I really like these. I have never had the right place to put one up myself. Several friends have done so in their homes. It was always the focal point of each visit. The mural seemed to transport us to a different place.

This is something I have always wanted to do with a room, but never had the right place or the courage to do it.
