Start your bedroom mural search by gathering all the images you love. You don’t need to justify why just pull together images and designs that you’re instantly drawn to. Once you’ve chosen at least 10-15 great images, look at them closely. 

Are there any patterns forming? Have you chosen all floral designs or perhaps you’re drawn to photographic designs? Maybe you’ve selected Arts & Crafts patterns or real-life textures? It could be that you’ve picked colours of a similar tone or shade. It’s important to begin with understanding why you’ve chosen these images will start to unpick what designs excite you and you can start narrowing your search by sticking to your criteria. This will also ensure you’re not installing your bedroom wallpaper on a whim, and that you’re choosing a mural you will love. Start your search by just gathering everything you love. You don’t need to justify why just pull together images and designs that you’re instantly drawn to. Once you’ve got at least 10-15 start looking at these a little deeper.

You’ve found the style of images you love, next up is considering the paper type that will best suit your requirements. The last thing you want to do is have your heart set on a design, only to find out it doesn’t give you the look and finish you want to achieve. We recommend gathering samples of your favourite papers and comparing these samples with each other. Do they feel like they could withstand general wear and tear of the home? Are they thin or thick? Are they suitable to be wiped down? Do they offer you the finishes that you like?

Thicker wallpaper is much better at hiding any lumps and bumps and generally hang much better on your wall. Our linen textured wallpaper finish feature a woven finish reminiscent of printed fabric, for a warm and soft effect, suitable for both home and commercial application.

Before you settle on a design and paper quality, it’s worth working out a rough guide of costs. If you’re going down the traditional wallpaper route, does the roll allow you minimal waste or are you going to be left with the best part of a roll once your wallpaper is up? 

If it’s the latter, you might want to look at bespoke wallpaper murals, printed to your exact specifications. That way you’ll know the final price prior to installing and you won’t be left with any odd rolls hanging around for years afterwards!

Now you’ve selected your wallpaper finish and decided if you’re going down the traditional wallpaper or wallpaper mural route, you can finalise your image choice. 

Hang samples of potential designs on the chosen wall to live with for a bit and if possible get samples of your wallpaper mural at scale so you can really visualise what the mural will look like. 

Don’t forget to check out your chosen brands social media pages as well to see how other customers have used their designs in real-life settings, you never know you might spot a hidden gem, which is a complete game changer!

Pair paint and pattern together, match colours from your wallpaper with a complementing paint. By selecting your wallpaper first this will make it much easier. 

With so many custom mix paints on the market, this should be a relatively easy task although make sure you invest in some sample pots to compare, sometimes these can vary more than you expect!

turn your dog into art: Choose the ground colour from your wallpaper design to paint your other walls, this gives the illusion of your feature wallpaper and paint blending together. 

Don’t be afraid to carry this onto your woodwork and doors or if you’re feeling bold select a contrasting colour for your doors and/or skirting, an easy twist that creates a really cohesive scheme. 

William Morris’ Snakehead wallpaper is the perfect contrast to the black fireplace, complementing the moody tones whilst incorporating pops of colour.

Totally pleased , arrived on time, glasses right size and dark enough.
Fit good, feel great, good quality. I brought more because I liked them so much.
I bought this for my lovely mom who always used my stepdad's sweaters. They were never cozy enough and she was still always cold even with a blanket layered on top. I got this for her birthday and the moment she opened it, she was so excited! A blanket and a hoodie all rolled into one thing! She put it on immediately and didn't take it off for hours! We are both very pleased with our purchase. I might just buy one for myself in the future :)
my size is almost medium (some small Ts fits me), wide solders slim core, still this was a perfect fir, its has a stretch feeling and very soft material, but i noticed after a couple of washes, its color is slowly fading.
They were exactly what I expected.
They are warm and comfortable
Most comfortable I have ever put on
Love this bag. Its lightweight and big enough to hold a small laptop or iPad.
Good quality
No sirven nogasten su dinero en esta basura
This picture shows a three button collared shirt. I received basically an undershirt or regular t-shirt
Bought this for my mom on my wedding day. She loves a little glam and this is perfect.
Un super look, me encanta como se ve. Y el tamao perfecto
Great bag, for short hike. Holds a bottle of water, car keys, wallet and more !!!
Good made hat but i got the dark brown one definitely not the same color it's more of a light brown/tan little disappointed wanted the dark brown.
Good sunglasses, they fit very well and do not move much when doing activities compared to other glasses. They are very comfortable, but my only criticism is the lack of coverage when light is to the side of my face rather than in front.
This is a wonderful product and shipping was quick and easy!! Great purchase!!
Perfect. Light weight and fits as expected.
Loved the product.
Good quality
Sisters birthday
Received the credit card wallet, love it just the right size for my purse.
Fit great
I have at least 5 other brands and this one makes me the most sweaty.
Hopefully it's just temporary, till it gets a few washes and my skin gets used to it.
Love them
Love the watch. It lasted 2 month and the pin broke away!
I love this wallet, great form factor.. This is my second one, my last one came apart at the seams, I think it was more my fault than the wallets tho as I prob had to much in it.. I forgot they have a 12 month warranty or I woulda tried to have it replaced. I had my original about 6-7 months.
Replaced and older model that the zipper broke on after 3 years of use.
This product appealed to me because I didn't like having 8 keys on a round key ring in my pocket which poked my thighs. This product also made it look more organized. There is nothing special about this product. Its just two pieces of plastic that holds your keys with screws. Nothing broke but the biggest problem that I had was trying to get the right key open using one hand to open the door. It either took me too much time or I had to put down whatever was in my hand so I can select the right key with one hand. To avoid this I loosened the screws so the keys can fall out and I can select the right key. When I loosed the screws, I had the same problem of the keys poking by thighs (actually worse since when the keys were on this holder then there is no give). I have noticed that I have holes/tears in my pants pockets now since I have been using this product. I think this key ring would work if you have a two to four keys but does not work if you have more than four keys. But then again if you only have less than four keys, you really don't need this product. I think this is just great marketing but hasn't worked out for me.
