Measuring for a Wall Mural

Once you have decided on the wall you want to enhance with a mural, you will need to decide what portion of the wall you want covered. Keep in mind that a full wall mural is going to offer you the greatest impact and is ultimately the best value for your money. This is one instance where size truly does matter. A partial wall mural will add color, texture, interest and, if you wish, provide a theme to your space. However a full wall mural will provide extraordinary drama and help you transform a room from ho-hum to incredibly chic.

A great way to see how a mural will look on your wall is to try our "virtual room" feature. Click on an image from our extensive directory and then on the "virtual room" link below the image. You'll be able to see how a mural will look in different sizes with different combinations of furniture. You may find that your ideal selection may include a wall mural above a sofa or behind a desk or headboard. At murals your way you get to choose the exact dimensions that fit your space.

Once you have decided on the perfect size, measure the wall several times to ensure accuracy.

Measuring tips (full wall)

Width—measure the horizontal distance from corner to corner.

Height—we recommend that you measure the vertical height at each corner as walls are never perfectly square. If different, select the greater of the two height measurements.

Measuring tips (partial wall)

Submit your exact measurements of your desired mural space.

Note: we create all custom size murals based on the specific dimensions that you provide. To allow for slightly uneven wall dimensions we add an extra inch of bleed to the height and width of each mural section, or panel. This extra material can be easily trimmed away once the mural application is complete.
