What To Consider When Placing A Mural on Your Wall

What To Consider When Placing A Mural on Your Wall

If you’re considering having an artwork in your home, here’s five reasons why you absolutely need it.

A custom wall art is added to and rendered integral to the surface of a wall or roof. The word may properly include painting on fired tiles, although it does not usually apply to mosaic unless the mosaic forms part of the painting’s overall scheme.

A mural will express your passions, your tastes, and your artistic flair. At Panel Wall Art, we’re giving you many choices for sizes, photos, content, and customization so that you can make your mural your way. With all the choices we’re offering, how do you know where to start?

The Area

Murals look amazing in both the home and workplace environment! At home, murals will look fantastic in any space and serve various purposes. Here are a couple of ideas:

Entrance: Placing a canvas wall art in the entrance allows you to wow your guests the moment they enter your home.

Living room: As a common area, this tends to be the area where your guests spend most of their time when they’re in your home. Having a mural will help continue the flow of the conversation. You’ll have a lot of things to talk about with a vast conversation starter right there.

Bedroom: Since a mural is a form of wall art, it never hurts to keep a comprehensive art piece in the bedroom. 

Bathroom: With a mural in the bathroom, you can introduce a different kind of light into its corners and small spaces.

Children’s bedrooms or playrooms: You can always bring the magic of fairy tales and childhood in these rooms. A mural of Peter Pan never hurt anyone.

In a business setting, murals will set the stage for patrons, partners, and employees. Here are a few places you can use murals in terms of industrial and retail settings:

Restaurants: Create a dining experience with a wall art for your restaurant.

Boutiques: Add quickly changed seasonal backgrounds to your retail shop.

Schools: Build school spirits by adding squad signs or mascots to hallways and classrooms.

Lounge: Set a calming environment for your spa or your mural lounge.


The Design

You can always check online for galleries of thousands of pictures, from abstract art to zebra! Start dreaming about what sort of pictures you love to see.

You may want to recall your trip to Paris, or you’ve always wanted to take a trip to the sandy beaches of Hawaii. If you enjoy nature, you might want to use the picture of a mountain or a forest to get outdoors.

If you’re not a murals photographer, you can opt to use compositions that have a drawn look or even abstract paintings. Also, note that we can customize murals to fit around doors or walls, incorporate photographs or text, and adjust the patterns’ size.

You cannot use editorial photographs for murals. You may also opt to use your portrait or artwork for a fully personalized wall art. And there’s no extra charge for using your photo!

The Size

Any mural you choose to add to your wall is a custom order. You should specify the scale that best suits the situation-from a minimum of 4″ x 6″ (24 square feet) to a wall covering the whole wall. If you choose your design, you can make it smaller than 24 square feet, but the minimum price applies.

When choosing what size to order, bear in mind that a complete mural will have the most effect on you and will eventually be the best value for your money. It is one case where size does matter. A partial mural adds color, texture, interest and creates a theme for your gallery. However, a complete mural will add extraordinary drama and help you turn any space to amazingly cool.


The Material

Take note that you are not drawing or painting a mural on your typical paper. Companies that often reproduce murals do it on your choice of high-quality, tear-resistant fabrics. Most of them are assembled using wallpaper paste, except for the peel and stick material. Our murals are painted on panels up to 48 inches wide and shot, not framed.

Think of the feel and the sheen. Each substance has a subtly different texture and finish. Photographs seem to look better on our smooth-surfaced materials as they have the sharpest shot. Canvas is also used for abstract murals, giving them an artsy appearance.

The Method

You’ll need to move your picture to the wall to get started. You can now have a drawing of what your mural would look like, but you’ll need to expand the image to the wall using either of these mural techniques: the grid system or the art projector. Use a pencil to map the picture to your wall.

Now that you’ve got your pencil outline, you can start the underpainting. The underpainting consists of big color blocks, on which you will be able to paint more detail later. Depending on your image’s colors, you can use indoor household paint for vast areas of color. You can also combine your artist-quality acrylic paint with ultra matte gel or a medium matte gel with a 1:1 ratio.

Much of the mural techniques are similar to the art techniques that you will use while painting acrylics on canvas.
