How to make room hall mural?
Since Soviet times, we used to call a room in an apartment or house, intended for all family members to spend their time, to receive guests, to hold business meetings. This is one of the main rooms of any home, practically its “face”. The main touch of the interior of each room is given by the walls. The hall in this respect was no exception. If the walls in it are dull and unsightly, then the most magnificent design will not make the hall cozy and comfortable. But even the most minimalist interior will play with magic paints, if one of the walls is decorated with photo wallpapers.

What is a photo wallpaper?
Modern wallpapers are widescreen posters with realistic images of great quality. They will be a real decoration of the interior of any room. Even the most dreary room with their help come to life. Wall mural - the dominant of the entire interior.
They depict magnificent landscapes, macro photographs of various plants, mysterious streets of old cities, magnificent waterfalls. All this is captured at different times of the year and at different times of the day. Variations of such photo wallpapers thousands. They are all so realistic that they seem to reach out and a splash of waterfall will fall on it, or you will feel a breeze in a birch grove.
Today you can choose wallpapers not only by the size of the wall, but also to your own taste, in accordance with your preferences, mood, color palette prevailing in the interior design of a particular room.
Choosing wallpaper for the hall
To choose a decorative wallpaper for the hall correctly, you need to pay attention to several important points:
- the image on the wallpaper should match the overall color of the room (for example, if yellow, orange, red predominate in the room, then choose wallpaper with autumn landscapes, city streets of old cities, whose pavements are simply saturated with the hot sun) and its design;
- they should create a special atmosphere of the hall (relaxed, business or cheerful): for example, the white interior of the hall will emphasize a poster depicting some predator resting, relaxed, but at the same time he is a guard at home, his protector, such a hall will not only underline the status of the owner of the house, but also becomes the center of various meetings, business negotiations, parties;
- modern interior of the hall is decorated with macro photographs, in which a small number of colors and shades (for example, it may be just an apple branch, covered with white flowers and depicted against a blue sky);
- a win-win for the hall - wallpaper with a predominance of green, the composition with green is successfully combined with the floor, walls or furniture.
Tip: if in the interior of your room there are many bright colors, then decorate one of the walls with a poster with a monochrome image; if the design of the room is designed in muted, dull colors, then the black-and-white image is better not to use, it will quickly get you tired.
Zoning the space of the hall with the help of photo wallpaper
With the help of photo wallpapers not only decorate the hall, but also divide it into zones. In this room, decorative wallpaper is better to stick the side or behind, in places not open to your eyes. For example, if the dining table is placed in the center of the room and people will sit opposite each other, then they wallpaper the wall located on the side of the table with photo wallpaper, so that they do not distract their bright design during meals or conversation.
There is always a lot of furniture in the hall, so it is possible to stick wallpapers and not close them at least partially, sometimes very problematic. Different shelves, cabinets and open shelves must be moved so that the picture is completely open. But in the case when the main object depicted on the poster is located in the upper unclosed part or only the upper part of the wall is covered with wallpaper, you can safely place, for example, a long sofa near it.
Tip: Do not place chairs and chairs near the wall with photo wallpapers, small details will reduce the effect of its design.
Such wallpaper often allocate a recreation area in the hall. No need to glue the entire wall on which hangs (or near which costs) TV. The ideal option is to use the panel in the frame of a baguette (imitation of a window frame), in the middle of which hang a TV. The wall around the panel can be painted in a single color, all the other walls can be decorated with wallpaper that matches in color.
You can divide the room into zones if you paste a certain corner of the room with natural wallpaper with wall murals. This will create the effect of a large stained glass window, which can be seen on the veranda of a country house. Such a design of the hall will make it a corner of coziness and comfort in the house.
Tip: glue the wallpaper on the wall and ceiling crosswise, so that the corners are free under the usual wallpaper, select neutral posters for this, which can be used on the walls and on the ceiling (for example, with the image of the sky with clouds floating on it or the forest, but pasted over it is necessary so that the wallpaper with leaves is pasted on the ceiling, so it is possible to achieve the effect of crowns that are closed above the head).

Photo walling rules
Depending on the material from which the wallpaper is made, choose the method of pasting their walls.
Simple wallpaper glue to glue paper wallpaper. Posters on non-woven, vinyl or fabric base require special glue.
Before pasting the wall surface must be leveled and plastered.
Fabric wallpapers are sold in a single canvas, which complicates the way they are glued. First you need to attach the top edge of the poster to the wall. Then the canvas with a roller or soft brush gently, slowly, begin to smooth out, gradually falling down.
Wall murals on non-woven base are sold either with a solid cloth or cut into rectangles. First, cover the wall with a special glue, do not need to grease the canvas. They are glued in the same way as fabric wallpapers.
Vinyl wallpapers require careful handling, since the coating on the base is not very durable and can crumble. After pasting such wallpaper smooth only roller. Using a piece of cloth or brush is strictly prohibited.
It is easier to work with wallpaper, the canvas of which is divided into separate fragments. But when they are glued, various errors may occur. A solid canvas, if you stick it correctly, will give a perfect image on the wall of the hall.
Show your imagination, make the interior of your room with photo wallpapers not just beautiful, but original, stylish and cozy. Remember, the design of the walls is like a frame for a precious stone in the ring: design them elegantly and your room will sparkle with new colors.
