Decisions, Decisions: How to Choose your Wall Mural by Jen @ LoveChicLiving

How do you decide? When faced with such a diverse range of designs and patterns, how do you go about choosing the JW Wall that’s right for your home? That was exactly the dilemma that we had after deciding to install a wall mural in our home.

We’d decided to makeover the Dining Room into more of a snug come playroom a few months ago, and when JWWalls offered us a Wall Mural to review as part of the process we were thrilled. I love dramatic decor. The interiors of our home say so much about us; they really are an extension of our personalities. I like to think that the home interiors I choose allow me to express parts of my personality I don’t always show. In my interiors I like bold and loud as well as dramatic, and I wasn’t disappointed when I looked through the designs on offer at JWWalls. The choice was so extensive that I spent hours browsing the website, imagining all kinds of finished designs in my own home.

The Wall Mural was to be the focal point of room; setting the tone for the rest of the decor so one of the ways I came to my decision was to use a Moodboard. I knew we wanted something abstract, colourful, fun, modern and dramatic and once I’d shortlisted a few designs in the Project area of my JWWalls online account, I put them into a Moodboard with a few other key pieces from the room.  This really gave me a feel for how the room would look and whether it could work altogether. After ‘living’ with the board for several days I knew I’d hit on the right design in ‘Coloured Circles’ and went ahead and made the order.

Installing the Mural wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. We’d decided to film the process and create a ‘How To’ video from a customer’s point of view. As a customer of many products I know I value honest opinions and reviews and this is what I’d tried to create through the film. We filmed each stage as we went through them, and once edited I think it really gives you a good sense of what it’s like to install one of the JWWalls.

Overall the installation process isn’t as daunting as you think it might be. In many senses it’s even easier than putting up wallpaper, particularly given the fact that marker lines guide how the next piece will line up. Having said that I think you probably need a little wallpaper hanging experience before you embark on a Wall Mural installation.

Half way through and it already looks great!

What has struck me most since installing our Wall Mural is the beautiful quality of both the image, and the product itself. We’d opted for the JW Standard and its thick, tough and appears to be very durable. The quality of the printed image is like nothing I’ve seen before. The detail, the colours, the impact; it takes my breath away every time I enter the room to be honest and I sit looking at the wall for long periods!

If you’re in doubt about whether a JW Wall is for you, about whether you can invest in one, or whether you are able to install it, I’d say just go for it. You really won’t be disappointed!
