The design possibilities are limitless. Here are a few things to consider when designing a wall mural.

Designing a wall mural

When you first set out to create a wall mural you need to think about the big picture. Consider the rest of the interior design, the colors, and the architecture of the space. You also have to look at the wall in question to make sure there aren’t flaws or obstacles that can get in the way of your design. You can easily design a mural to fit onto a wall that has windows; you have to be aware of it before you plan your mural. Wall murals are most effective when they are designed specifically for your space, just like custom fitting a vehicle wrap on a specific make and model.

Fitting the wall mural

If you want to cover the entire wall with a custom design, pattern, or picture, then you’re better off finding a wall that doesn’t have windows. Or, you need to incorporate the windows into the design so that the window doesn’t ruin the effect of your wall mural.

Murals aren't just for walls

You can also add murals to the floor, ceiling, and doors. Just make sure that you design the mural specifically for the area where it will be featured. Adding your team colors, name, and logo to the floor of your basketball court is a way to enhance team unity and to remind visiting teams who's house they are in.

Matching fonts and colors

You want your logo to enhance your business or your team. Make sure that you consider your brand when you design a mural. Be consistent. Use the same fonts and colors that your fans or customers will see in other places so that they immediately recognize the design and relate it to your team or company.

Timeless mural design

You want your mural to be timeless because it’s going to be there for a while. Sure, you can switch out your murals, but it’s much more effective if you can come up with something that is timeless. You also want the mural design to be memorable, but not distracting. You want it to stand out without being too loud. The mural should help create the right ambiance and atmosphere that is good for your business.
