How to Hang a Mural

How to Hang a Mural

I recently installed the most beautiful landscape mural from Belarte Studio and wanted to share How to Hang a Mural.

Belarte Studio brings life to unique art expressions through designed wall murals. They are based in Sweden and production is made on-demand (which means zero waste).

Belarte is the Italian word for beautiful art – which is exactly what this vintage landscape mural is.

How to Hang a Mural

Installation isn’t hard, but it does take some time and patience. Belarte Studio includes fantastic instructions for hanging with your mural.


Before you begin, make sure you have the right tools for installation:

  • Belarte Studio Wallpaper (and included instructions)
  • Seam Roller
  • Smoothing Brush or Tool
  • Level
  • Sponge & Water
  • Razor Blade or Knife
  • Straight Edge
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Brush/Roller for Paste
  • Wallpaper Paste

*For easier removal, I would recommend sizing the wall and using a wallpaper paste that is easily strippable.

  • Make sure the walls are clean and smooth. If you’ve done some repair work to the walls, be sure to have painted the patches.
  • Cut the mural into individual strips and place them in order.
  • Depending on the wall, you will need to decide where to start. Since my focal point was the top of the stairs (the left side), I began with my last panel.
  • Using a ruler, mark off the first panel so you know where to *add the wallpaper paste (and it helps you hang the first strip straight.
  • You will begin at the top of the strip and work down, removing any air bubbles along the way.
  • Since my pattern was in the middle of my strips, from the second panel on, I matched the middle. It was tricky but luckily the wallpaper paste gives (but you do have to work fast since dry time is quick).
  • Reat the process until the wall is complete and make sure to push out excess glue at the seams and use a seam roller to try and hide the seams.

*I use as little wallpaper paste as possible. I first applied with a paste brush and evenly smoothed the paste out with a roller.

And after an afternoon of installation, we now have a beautiful piece of art at the top of our stairway.

The Best Wall Murals

I have been obsessing over murals lately and scheming for the perfect space to add one. When I saw this landscape mural from Anewall, it was love at first site. Anewall has the best wall murals for your home!

The Best Wall Murals

The murals are installed like wallpaper (they come in rolls) and can be ordered pre-pasted (my strong preference), traditional (you add the paste yourself) and self-adhesive vinyl.

I have added a lot of wallpaper to our home lately, and I prefer the pre-pasted option. All you have to do is add water to activate the adhesive, and it is typically easier to remove than traditional paper. I have a steamer with a wallpaper attachment I use when I remove wallpaper. I share a wallpaper tutorial HERE, and it includes a video as well.

I installed the mural in an afternoon. My room is a little longer than the traditional size Anewall sells, so mine was custom made. Shipping was fast and installation was very easy.

If you have been following along on my decor adventures, you know that I have struggled with this space (which went from a home office to a home library). I always envisioned an timeless and elegant space, but it was a journey to get here. I added marble tile and the bookshelves. I also played around with various wall treatments, but thanks to Anewall, I finally achieved the look I wanted for the space. I absolutely love it!

Anewall offers so many different wall murals – perfect for any space or style. I used their Shaded Landscape Mural, and you can find it HERE.

Thank you Anewall for the partnership – I’m a huge fan and already looking for more spaces to add your gorgeous wall murals!
