Wall murals are an easy and affordable way to create a stunning feature wall. 

Here we’ll talk you through how our wall murals work and how to hang a mural step-by-step.

How do wall murals work?

Unlike wallpaper with its repeating pattern, murals consist of one large design, similar to a photograph or painting.

Wall murals are like a large-scale work of art that allows you to add luscious landscapes, world maps, supersized florals and more to your interiors. They create an immediate focal point that you can’t help but fall in love with.

Each of our wall murals arrives in one 17m long roll which contains seven panels, each measuring 50cm wide x 240cm high.

But the question we know you’re asking is, are wall murals easy to put up?

The short answer, yes!

The panels alternate between right-side-up and upside down on the roll. And the back of each panel is pre-printed with trim-lines and sequential numbers, so it’s easy to cut and arrange your panels in the right order.

All of our wall murals are paste the wall application too, making them even easier to hang.

How to hang a wall mural step-by-step

Before you hang your wall mural, you need to prepare your wall first. To create as smooth a surface as possible, follow our guide on how to prepare your wall for decorating.

Once your wall is prepped and you’re ready to get started, follow our step-by-step guide below on how to hang your wall mural.

Step 1. From the top left-hand corner of the wall you’re papering, measure 48cm across and mark it with a pencil. Then use a spirit level to draw a straight line down the length of your wall. This line will be your guide when hanging your first panel.

Step 2. Mix your wallpaper paste and apply it generously to your wall, using a roller for easy application and coating an inch or two past the line you’ve drawn. Then use a small paintbrush to spread the paste as close as possible to your ceiling, skirting board and the edge of your wall.

Step 3. Cut the first panel of your mural from the roll and line the right-hand edge up with the straight line drawn on your wall, brushing it lightly into place.

Step 4. Check that you’re happy with how your panel is positioned and brush the paper firmly into place, working from the centre to the edges of the panel as you smooth it down. Once it’s in place, use your knife to trim any excess paper at the top, bottom and outer edge.

Step 5. Continue to paste the wall in sections and cut each panel of your mural as you go. Ensure the image matches up and that each panel is positioned edge-to-edge without any gaps or overlapping paper.

Follow our instructions step-by-step, and it’s easy to master how to hang a wall mural.
