Wall murals - a brilliant way to decorate your apartment

The glory years for wall murals began in the 1980s and early 1990s. However, they were usually printed on low-quality paper, which quickly deteriorated and the initial, interesting decorative effect disappeared very quickly. Today’s wall murals are produced on high-quality materials that make them usable in practically every room, and thanks to access to large collections of stock photos, you can have any motif on the walls of your apartment.

Which wall murals are best for emphasising the character of the interior?


More space

Wall murals are often used to optically enlarge apartments. This effect can be achieved through spatial murals. These include photos of streets, rural areas, forest roads, and bridges. You can also visually enlarge and brighten your apartment using murals with bright abstract motifs or plants, such as tulips or orchids.

An interesting structure on the wall

Loft-style apartments, where the texture of the wall plays a big role, are gaining in popularity. But what can you do if you live in a new block or a detached house where uncovering a raw wall is not possible? You can use a wall mural resembling the texture of brick, concrete, or wood. Depending on your needs, you can choose a print in one colour or in several shades and different sizes of particular elements. However, remember that concrete and dark wood will work better in large, spacious interiors, while in smaller rooms it is a better idea to choose brighter patterns in cool white, grey, or light beige.

Inspired by travel

If you would like your interior to reflect a style inspired by a certain place, you can choose a wall mural of country-specific elements, such as lavender fields from Provence, Greek whitewashed houses and windmills on Santorini island, the Golden Gate bridge, or the New York skyline with the Brooklyn bridge.
