We often get asked Wallpaper vs Wall Murals? What's the difference? Which one is best for my feature wall?

Murals vs Wallpaper - Top 5 reasons 

  1. Wallpaper uses mass produced patterns in large quantities
  2. Wallpaper has so many constraints regarding repeat pattern. We love oversized images with no repeat; this is why our “Back to the Wall” interior murals are so unique and dynamic. A wall mural is one big image that is sectioned into panels
  3. With wallpaper, the rolls usually come in set widths and lengths. With our murals you order the exact size and you don't pay for leftover wallpaper
  4. You get unique custom wall mural prints, instead of everyday wallpaper prints that you can get almost anywhere. You can even design your own
  5. There are no size constraints with a custom wall mural
