There are many ways you can make a statement with the interior design of your home. By introducing one piece of decor to serve as a focal point in a room, you can have something that attracts the eye and stimulates the senses.
Wall murals are one such focal point that will elevate a room for the better. When you install a photorealistic wall mural into a space, it’s hard to ignore. That’s because a high-quality wall mural is able to transport you to another place.

A wall mural is a major home decor element that brings the outside world into your home – the effect of which is truly breathtaking. Want proof? Look no further than the project that our friends over at S&A Decor recently completed using wall murals from Talissa Decor.
In this article, we’re going to look at the considerations you’ll have to make to find the right wall mural that will transform your home for the better.
Selecting a Room
Once you’ve decided to purchase a wall mural for your home, the first choice you’ll have to make is where to put the mural. The kitchen? The bedroom? The family room? All of these rooms are a great option for a wall mural – but you need to make sure you have the space for a mural.
As you can see in the project images from S&A, the client elected to install wall murals in their living room and kitchen. In the living room, they used a wall mural to cover an entire wall with a relaxing forest scene. This is the perfect image for a living room, as the living room is the space that people go to at the end of a long day of work, running errands and cooking to unwind and relax.
The client also decided to do something fun in the kitchen by incorporating a wall mural in the space where some homeowners elect to put a backsplash. Having a mural in the kitchen where you might expect to see a backsplash is a great way to establish an overall design that is fun and unpredictable. Now, S&A’s client’s kitchen has a very intriguing focal point that is sure to attract the eye of every guest to their home.
Choosing a Design
When you’re designing your home, it’s important to remember that your home tells a story – the story of you. You’re going to want to find something that speaks to you and exudes your personality when selecting a wall mural design for your home.
From landscapes and geographic locations to floral designs and abstract art, there are many different wall mural designs available to match any taste or style – so there’s definitely something out there for you and your home.
Obviously, you’re going to want to look for a design that works with a space and doesn’t clash with the colour or the style of a room. For example, if you have a room that is already busy with a few home decor elements, you probably don’t want to add a large wall mural with an optical illusion design.
Getting the Size Right
More often than not, when you see a wall mural, it is massive and imposing. Although companies tend to use examples of large wall murals to market their products, you can find get a wall mural in just about any size.
What it comes down to is the space you are working with. If you don’t have a large empty wall to hang a wall mural (like the one in the living room of the S&A project), then you can get a smaller, or more narrow, mural that can fit just about anywhere (like the mural in the kitchen of the S & A project).
Lucky for you, wall murals can fit just about anywhere, so don’t let things like a lack of space deter you from experimenting with this fantastic home decor element. The only thing that can limit the possibilities of a wall mural is your imagination, so let it run wild when considering a wall mural for your home.
