Tropical wall murals are rising in popularity this summer. These fun accents create the illusion of your very own exclusive paradise in your home. Tropical wall murals liven and brighten up any room, and with the right painting and framing, make you feel like you’re at the beach. With tropical wall murals, there is room to play around. A giant palm tree growing from your floor with colorful parrots perched in the trees might be the scene for you. If the tropical theme isn’t your jam, you could create a sea and water theme with sandy beaches painted near your ceiling, and a water scene with colorful tropical fishes below.
Making your own Mural
When it comes to painting tropical murals, this process can be tricky. To make the scene look lifelike, you’ll need to use complex coloring to capture light and shadow, which can be difficult if you’re not confident in your painting abilities. An easy starting point is to incorporate small tropical elements throughout the room, like small fish darting out from behind a couch. If painting the scene yourself isn’t your thing, you could buy a tropical print, hang it above your couch, and paint crisp white shutters around the print – that will mimic a fantastic view of the beach from your living room.
Where to Buy Stencils
Online retailers, like Etsy, sell various tropical wall mural stencil kits. These retailers will send you a stencil that you can trace to your wall and then paint. Generally, these stencil kits range in price anywhere from $40 to $150.
Leaving it to the Professionals
If you have a bigger budget, and want to take a tropical mural to the professional level, there are many mural painters who have the experience. Commissioning an artist will save you time and the hassle, but is the more expensive option. Depending on the size and complexity of the mural, you can expect to pay anywhere around $30 to $100 per square foot of the mural.
