Redecorating your bedroom with either a new and vibrant color scheme or a more natural and clean one can really bring your room to life and make it feel new and exciting again.

Here’s an interesting idea though, why not consider a mural instead of just flat colors? If you pick carefully and do it right you can truly turn your bedroom into a tranquil oasis…

Wall murals are becoming the latest and easiest way to transform your bedroom into another locale entirely. One wall can become a view into a lush green forest, or a rushing waterfall.

How about waking up in the morning and looking out onto a meadow of brightly colored flowers? Or alternatively you could pick a desert island beach. There are plenty of options and something just right for everyone.

But before you go ahead and pick your mural, here are some pointers to bear in mind to make sure you get one that is just right.

Match it to the color scheme in your room

What color are the other walls in your bedroom? Bear this in mind when choosing a wall mural. You don’t want it to clash with your existing color scheme. Alternatively you could take this as an opportunity to do some decorating, opening up a wide choice of murals to look through.

Of course the first thing to consider when choosing a mural is how it will fit in with your bedroom. With so many designs to choose from you need to consider the colors of the other walls in your room (or whether you will paint them too), and the color and style of your accessories.

If your furniture is all Victorian or antique, a futuristic space scene, whilst visually stunning might not fit. Likewise, will a sandy beach scene might look odd if the rest of your room is painted bright green… you get the idea.

Pick The Right Mural For Your Personality

There are so many options to choose from; summer meadows, crashing waves, desert islands, tropical beaches, under the ocean, space and just random groovy designs and patterns.

Remember that once in place you will be stuck with your chosen mural, so pick carefully; you shouldn’t necessarily prioritize impact, but go for something with lasting appeal, and something that you will find inspiring or relaxing every day.
