Wall Mural VS Wallpaper

When it comes to adding a personal touch to your space, both wall murals and wallpaper offer great possibilities. The key lies in understanding their unique strengths and how they align with your design goals. Wallpapers have smaller, repeating patterns, while wall murals often feature bigger, more eye-catching designs that command attention.

Wall Mural

A wall mural often represents a singular, impactful image, such as a fascinating world map or a breathtaking landscape, scaled specifically to your wall dimensions. These murals serve as stunning focal points, designed to seize attention. Plus, it's not limited to just one wall – our murals can spread their magic across multiple walls, turning your space into a true work of art! Wall murals can completely change the atmosphere of a room, whether you want to add a calming nature scene to your bedroom or a vibrant cityscape to your living room.

Wall Murals are delivered in rolls with each panel numbered for effortless installation. At Rebel Walls all our wall murals are produced on demand with your unique measurements.

Pattern Repeats for Wall Murals

Wall murals can be categorized in a variety of pattern repeats, catering to different room sizes and styles.

Fully Repeatable: The pattern in these murals repeats seamlessly both vertically and horizontally. This means that whether you have high ceilings or want to wallpaper a wide wall or multiple walls, the pattern will look good without losing its scale or proportions.

Horizontally Repeatable: The pattern in these murals repeats horizontally. This means that it is perfect for a wide wall or multiple walls, the size of the pattern will adjust to the height of the wall.

Non-Repeatable: These murals are excellent for making a striking focal point in a room. They're usually meant for a single accent wall and don't have a repeating pattern. This could be wallpaper created from a photograph, for example.


A Wallpaper has a repetitive pattern, repeating vertically downwards, that brings harmony and charm to a room. With a wide variety of styles and patterns to choose from, you have endless options to personalize your space.

Pattern Repeats for Wallpaper

Wallpapers come in various pattern repeats, each determining the technique for application.

Straight Match: In a straight pattern match, each strip of wallpaper should be aligned precisely with the previous one. The same pattern repeats at regular intervals. Each strip needs to match precisely with the previous wallpaper strip.

No Match: No specific pattern needs to be matched. Simply place the strips side by side without considering the pattern.

Drop Match: A drop match is used to create a larger pattern distribution on the wall. Apply the wallpaper as usual, aligning the patterns. Use our roll calculator to easily find out how many rolls you'll need for your space. Our calculator takes the pattern repeat into account.
