Marble Effect Wallpapers & Marble Wall Murals
Marble wallpaper is one of the few interior design trends that are quite truly timeless. It reminds one of the classical styles of antiquity, while still ever-present in the lookbooks and interior design magazines of today. The expense of real marble makes it relatively unattainable to the modern consumer, but marble wallpaper is a cheaper alternative. You get the same looks and styles for a fraction of the price. Faux-marble wallpapers are one of the simplest ways to transform your space without overspending.
What are the benefits of using marble wallpaper?
There are so many fantastic advantages to using marble wallpaper. Firstly, it’s far more affordable than real marble, and it’s also far easier to apply. Real marble is heavy, difficult to fit, and costly to install. As well as this, with real marble, you’re limited to what is physically possible. However, marble wallpaper can come in all kinds of impossible shades and textures that can be suited far more accurately to your tastes.
Blue marble wallpaper looks incredible when used effectively in bathrooms, and colorful, acrylic-style marble wallpaper can transform a living space when used sparingly as a feature wall. Grey marble wallpaper or smoky texture marble wallpaper can be extremely effective within minimalist spaces as they give a refined yet unfinished look that looks unbelievable when done tastefully. Black silk marble wallpaper has a moodiness that wouldn’t look out of place in a study or any other space for quiet concentration.
What type of rooms is most suited to marble wallpaper?
One of the most important things to remember when considering marble wallpaper is that it often steals the show. That’s the price you pay when purchasing beautiful wallpaper. However, that doesn’t mean that we can’t help you find the perfect space for your dream marble wallpaper.
Another top tip for marble wallpaper is that it works best in uncluttered, clean spaces. It’s most commonly applied in bathrooms and kitchens. This is because these spaces are bright and tidy, allowing the eye to be drawn to the clean yet complex marble wallpaper that either envelops the room or stands as a feature wall. The most commonly used marble wallpapers for bathrooms and kitchens are white, gray, or dark marble wallpapers. These clean looks maintain a sense of calm.
However, this doesn’t mean that marble wallpaper doesn’t belong in the bedroom. One thing that you must consider when applying marble wallpaper in the bedroom is the cleanliness of white/gray marble. Most people do not want their bedrooms to appear too clinical, and marble can be less cozy than other wallpapers due to the hard, cold elements of the real thing. However, by embracing the creativity that marble wallpapers provide, this can be avoided. For example, pink marble wallpapers look great as a feature bedroom in teenage girls’ bedrooms. Black and gold marble wallpapers look great as a feature wall in any living space or even a bachelor’s bedroom, as it keeps it clean and refined.
Before you get started, it’s important to bear in mind a couple of important things. Dark marble wallpapers should only really be used if you’re okay with the room appearing slightly smaller. Light marble wallpapers should therefore be used when you want the room to appear as large as possible. This advice also applies when choosing between large- or small-scale patterns. If the marbling stretches on across the whole wallpaper, then this would be more suited to a large room, especially if there is minimal furniture. This is because the large-scale patterns help fill an otherwise empty room. Small-scale patterns should, therefore, be used to make the room appear bigger. Cool colors further this illusion, so opt for light shades of blue or gray.
Marble Wallpaper Color Guide
White Marble - By far the most common type of marble wallpaper. This works great for kitchen countertops or backsplashes. White marble wallpaper is also a classic and traditional option for bathrooms.
Black Marble - A chic interior design choice that shouldn’t be overdone. This color looks great as a feature wall or backsplash in a bathroom. Black marble with gold veins exudes luxury, but too much of it will appear cheap.
Blue Marble - Dark blue marble wallpaper will always draw the eye, but too much of it can be quite imposing. Light blue marble wallpaper adds a light change to any room and could be welcomed almost anywhere.
Rose Gold Marble - Great for kids’ bedrooms, especially teenage girls who have grown up from their toys but still love bright colors.
Geode - This is the most metallic of all marble wallpapers and offers bright colors and engaging patterns where other marble wallpapers are quite simple. This would look great as a conversation piece in a large living room.
How To Apply Marble Wallpaper
You’re in luck because marble wallpaper is so easy to apply if you follow the instructions carefully. Free glue is sent with each order so that you have everything you need to put up your marble wallpaper as soon as it arrives. It comes in a series of separate numbered panels so that you know exactly which order to put each panel up. Apply the glue and put up the panels as numbered, cleaning with a dry cloth as you go. It shouldn’t take long at all until you’ve got your dream marble wallpaper exactly how you want it.
Lay out each panel in numbered order.
Apply adhesive glue to the first panel. After this, line up the panel against the wall. Starting at the top, slowly work your way down, pressing the panel firmly against the flat wall.
With each following panel, line up and make sure that the patterns match up before applying the adhesive glue, and sticking against the wall.
Once each panel is on the wall, wipe it down with a dry cloth to make sure there is no adhesive or residue on the wall.
