Having A Mural Painted On Your Wall Or Fence

Having A Mural Painted On Your Wall Or Fence

If you are looking for a way to be creative with the paint on your wooden fence or on a wall of your home then you want to come up with a mural that adds a nice touch to your home without being too much. The right mural can add a look to your house that helps you to obtain a look for it that you will be happy with. The information here will help you to create the right looking mural for your place. 

Start with the right base color

Consider the point you are trying to make with your mural and begin with a base color that provides the right background. If you are going to go with a western mural, then you can start with a tan base color that will go well with the browns commonly used in western pictures. If you are going to be going with a waterfall mural, then a sky blue will make a good backdrop.

Choose a mural that goes with your décor or landscaping

If you choose a mural that doesn't match anything about your home, then it can end up looking tacky and standing out in a negative way. If your home has an antique vibe, then you can go with western or farm murals, but should stay away from modern murals depicting recent technology or people dressed in clothing of current times. If your home has a beach feel to it then you can add a mural of the ocean, but should stay away from one depicting the rainforest or New York downtown. 

Consider the layout of your home

Painting a mural on a wall of your home can make a small area look cluttered if you aren't careful. Make sure the mural is going in a room that doesn't already have a lot of items in it and you should also make sure the wall with the mural isn't one that you are going to want to put furniture in front of. Otherwise, you will be blocking part of the mural and this can make it look as if the design hasn't been well thought out.

Having a mural painted can give you a fence or wall that has a look to it that portrays the feeling and look that you are trying to achieve for your home. It can help to complete the desired effect you are going after. Contact local professionals, such as those from Euro-Men Painting Ltd, for further assistance.
