Murals are commonly used as decorations, to brighten up the otherwise dull and staid walls. They add color to the walls and create a delightful atmosphere in the rooms. Murals are used indoors and outdoors and come in different varieties.
The different types of wall murals include painted murals, tile murals and Ceramic murals. Painted murals are those in which the surface of the wall is painted. The basis of the design to be painted on the wall is pre-decided. The designs may be created in clay or on ceramic leaves, before creating the actual murals on the wall. Painted murals are extremely popular with children. They find themselves involved in the whole process, right from conceptualization of the theme, to manufacturing and assembling them. Parents also prefer painted murals, as they are relieved from the worry that accompanies their children occupying the ground space.
Tile murals, as the name suggests, are first painted on the tiles and then fixed on the walls. Tile murals have the quality of making a cold, dull place look attractive and interesting. Ordinary bathroom tiles can be used for the purpose. The tiles are cut into pieces depending on the design. They are then painted using englaze enamel. These murals can be big or small and give a complete new look to the room and even exteriors.
Ceramic murals are made of mosaic, mirror, tiles and ceramic pieces. They are excellent portrayals of artistic and creative skills .The ceramic designs are first made with clay and baked in a kiln. These murals are long and are generally inspired by canvasses.
In addition to the above murals, climbing wall and traversing wall are other versions of wall murals. Wall murals lend a beautiful and colorful ambience to the interiors and the exteriors of a home.
