The best wall murals for paint- and nail-free home decor

Modern murals are easy to apply and are an easy DIY project to change up your home. If you have limited space to make an interior design statement, utilize your walls for a dramatic makeover. We’ve highlighted our favorite wall murals to help you choose the one for your accent wall.

Mural walls come in various installation methods. Peel-and-stick wall murals stay on your wall via an adhesive side. There are also mural wall decals that are smaller in size and 3D wall murals that are smaller still.

The right wall mural depends on your overall decor vision, wall space, and creative freedom. While peel-and-stick murals are easy to install and cover large areas, they might require some cleanup if you end up  moving out of your home. Let’s check out our list to weigh out our options.

Komar Modern la Maison Wall Mural

Best Floral Design

Komar’s Modern la Maison wall mural comes with four panels measuring 12.1 feet wide and 8.3 feet high each. The blush pink peonies and soft green-gray petals are ideal for parlors and bedrooms. Note that the mural requires paste for mounting.

Trubetter Butterfly Wall Decals

Best 3D Mural

Trubetter’s 3D wall decal set comes with 24 realistic butterflies made of long-lasting, dust-resistant PVC. Each butterfly features a different shape and design for an assortment of decor choices. Note that these decals adhere best to clean, dry, and bump-free surfaces.

Wall26 Beach Open Window Wall Mural

Best Beach Design

Wall26 Store offers an open window mural leading to a crystal-blue water and white-sand beach. The durable vinyl guarantees seven years of life either indoors or outdoors on any flat surface. When you’re ready to take the decal down, it won’t leave adhesive residue on your wall, window, or door.

A wall mural or decal is a practical decoration choice when remodeling isn’t reasonable. With a strategically placed floral mural or a kaleidoscope of butterflies, you instantly create a show-stopping accent wall in any room of your choice. Choose a wall mural from our list today to help you breathe life into an otherwise dull vertical space.

These are the top home design trends, according to Zillow listings
These are the must-have designs according to Zillow

If you love looking at homes (whether you're in the market or not), Zillow is one of the premiere sites to do so. Not only does it give a good idea of what's available and coming available in your area, you can get home prices, up-and-coming neighborhoods, and plenty of design ideas when perusing homes. According to a recent study of millions of active for-sale Zillow listings, they even help to identify this year's most sought-after design trends. Here's what they had to say.

Outdoor spaces
Gorgeous outdoor spaces are having a moment, and for good reason. People are still spending more time at home post-pandemic, and having space outside to soak in the sun and be in nature is important. Backyards were mentioned 22% more often in for-sale listings last year when comparing them against the year prior. "The rising popularity of outdoor features suggests the pandemic has changed the way we want to live for good, priming the backyard for a 2023 evolution,” said Amanda Pendleton, Zillow’s home trends expert. “When the pandemic forced all entertaining outdoors, homeowners reclaimed their backyards from the kids or the dogs.”
Mirror, mirror on the wall
While outdoor spaces make sense, this next one may surprise you. Mirrored walls, like those that were popular circa 1970-1980s are coming back. "Mirrored walls and even mirrored ceilings have been showing up 12% more than the year before," according to the study, but with a bit of a twist. This time, more antique or vintage-inspired mirrors are on trend, especially when they make a small or dark room feel more spacious and bright.
Other notable mentions
Other trends rising in popularity over the last year are private nooks in a home, even in ones that are more open concept. Think reading nooks, private yoga spaces, or just a quiet, well-thought-out space where you can spend some time alone. Another mention is continuing the use of vintage materials like wood and muted metals to keep a home feeling warm and lived in. Finally, kitchen islands are continuing to stay popular as we use our kitchens for entertaining, family dinners, work, and play. The bigger, the better, and the use of color that offsets them from the rest of the space are still very much trending.
