Home Design has always been about making your home so beautiful that both owner and guests will be star-struck when they enter your humble abode. To achieve this effect, it is especially important to properly design and decorate your walls. After all, walls can be said to be the framework that encompasses the design of each and every home. They are what will showcase and highlight the type of aesthetics and vibes that the owners are going for.
However, in Singapore, most homeowners tend to gravitate toward classic white or grey paint to decorate their homes. While muted colours like those are extremely fail-proof and can even be harnessed into something much more with the appropriate design but there is a much easier way to beam up your home with elegance, art and beauty.
What are Mural Wallpapers?
Mural Wallpapers are specially crafted wallpapers that come with intricate designs, often a tasteful blend of colours and designs to achieve a complex and complete art piece. They are different from other common wallpapers as they do not have a repeat pattern. Although they may occupy more than one wall, the design still only has one picture and usually covers a wide area. By adding mural wallpapers into your interior design, it will elevate the mood of the room with the expressive mural design.
The designs used in mural wallpapers are usually natural sceneries that can be seen in real life. This makes sense because the immersive effect of the mural wallpaper will pull you into the design, giving you the feeling that you are in the place. Other mural wallpapers are usually more stylised to fit the designers’ vision.
A Special Wallpaper
Mural wallpapers are special because these wallpapers are
specially printed individually, better known as custom printing. The pasting
method of mural wallpapers is also different from ordinary wallpapers. As ordinary
wallpapers have the same repeat pattern, they will have the same design for
each wallpaper panel. Whereas for mural wallpapers, each wallpaper panel has a
different design that has been measured to fit the walls of your house. Each panel
will be pasted in order to show the full length of the design. As the
wallpapers are custom printed, they are environmentally friendly as they emit
less carbon footprint than those that are mass-produced.
An Artistic Expression
Each mural wallpaper tells a different story conveyed by the designer. If you are someone who likes to appreciate arts and paintings or you just want to incorporate a more unique taste to your home, mural wallpapers would be a good option to decorate your home. When looked at a distance, the entirety of the wallpaper can be seen as a huge painting that dominates the entire room. Thus, when using a mural wallpaper, be careful of the surrounding wallpapers to not overwhelm the entire room. It is best to use a plain colour wallpaper to match. If you want to experiment with more patterns, look for subtle common patterns such as wood, brick or concrete so as not to confuse the eye of which one is the feature wall.
