Wall Panels – An Alternative to Costly Wall Murals

Wall murals have been around for thousands of years. The first cave dwellers depicted daily life by scratching images into their surroundings. Wall murals continue to remain popular today.

Typically, wall murals are found in public spaces, government buildings or corporate environments. This is due primarily to the high cost of a custom installation. Depending upon where you live, and the quality of the artist, a custom wall mural can cost several thousand dollars. Rolled, adhesive murals (similar to wallpaper), are also fairly expensive and are not without their installation challenges.

Fasade Wall Panels

One alternative to a custom painted wall mural is Fasade wall panels. Made of decorative vinyl, Fasade wall panels bring beauty and value to any room in your home. With their textured aesthetic, these panels add depth and interest to any surrounding. Each panel measures 4’ x 8’ feet so it is easy to quickly cover 32 square feet of space. To install, simply apply construction adhesive to the back of each panel and press firmly against the surface you wish you cover.

Fasade wall panels are available in a number of designs ranging from classically traditional to contemporary or even industrial. Finishes run the gamut from clean, elegant whites that stand on their own. Or, they can be painted anything from muted, matte finishes to metallics that coordinate beautifully with appliances or other fixtures. It’s easy to cut Fasade wall panels to accommodate outlet covers, switch plates and other architectural features. Just use a scissors or snips. Matching trims are available to put the finishing touch on each project.

If you’re looking for an alternative to a costly custom wall mural, consider Fasade wall panels for your next project. For ideas on how to use them in your home, check out our photo galleries.
