What sizes are One-size wall murals and what are my postage options?

Ideal Décor murals – 366cm wide x 254cm high – 8 panels total. Postage options are UPS – delivery in 14 – 21 days or FedEx International – delivery in 5-7 days – additional costs apply.

Do I have to prepare my wall before I install my wall mural?

Yes, absolutely.
For existing walls we strongly suggest you apply 2x light coats of either a basic acrylic paint (non-silicon/teflon/additives)/ wallpaper preparation paint or wallboard sealant. Wash and wear paints will repel wallpaper glue and your installation may not be successful. Painting 2x light coats will put a barrier between the existing paint and the glue. Our recommendation is to paint 2x coats of either Dulux Aquanamel Gloss and Cabot’s Cabothane Clear. Both products will completely seal your wall and barrier against any wash and wear or existing paint on your wall.

Always use a ‘fine’ roller. Larger rollers will create a texture which can affect adhesion as the glue will adhere to the higher sections of paint leaving small gaps, rule of thumb – smoother the surface the better your application will be! For clear coats leave at least 24-48 hours to dry out. Paint/sealant allow around 5-7 days to dry whenever possible – remember the wall must be COMPLETELY DRY.

New wall? Wipe the surface with a damp cloth to remove dust/grime – paint coat 1 – allow to dry – lightly sand – wipe wall down to remove paint dust – paint coat 2 – allow to dry 48 hours minimum before installing your mural. Please check our free download at the bottom of this page or call us if you have any installation questions.

Can I cut my one-size wall mural down to fit my wall?

How much per meter squared is your custom wallpaper if I supply my own image?

Does it cost more to choose from your image/design stock then to send you my own photograph?

Does my wall need to be prepared for a wall mural?

Yes. Your mural or sticker may not adhere correctly unless the wall is prepped prior to hanging.

Our installers suggest you leave a week for the wall to totally dry before you hang your mural.

How do I know if my own image is good enough for a custom wall mural?

A lot depends on how big you require your mural and the quality of your original file. You may email us your mural or design and we will check it for you, obligation free.

Can I use an image I have found on the internet?

Unfortunately most internet images are set as low resolution and not suitable for a big enlargement. If you love the look and would like us to find something high resolution for your mural, send us your inquiry and we will start a search for you. It is very possible we have a like-image or design in our stock that we can send you for consideration.

Why does my image need to be high resolution?

As we increase the size of your image the dpi or dots per inch increase which makes the image pixelate or look blurry, therefore for mural size prints, we require high resolution images and designs.

What do I need to keep in mind if purchasing an image from an online photography stock website?

The largest file available is the one you want! Choose the XXXL version and if you are unsure of suitability, send through the details prior to finalizing your decision. We are here to help!

Rule of thumb is usually 1m wide panels x height. We will always let you know how many panels and the size on your invoice prior to printing.

Will my custom mural be cropped or be the same as the image online?

Depending on your wall size, sometimes to keep the quality of the image, we will crop your image to your wall size. If possible and on request, we can keep the image as a whole but if it will distort at full wall size, we will suggest a cropped version.
