Frequently Asked Questions
FAQs: Wallpaper Murals
How easy is it to hang your wall murals?
It takes a couple hours to hang your wallpaper mural, but depends on the size and number of cuts you need to make.
Here’s a video to teach you how to hang your mural.
If you’re not the do-it-yourself type (or are just too busy) I am a fully trained installer. I hang wall murals from Toronto to Niagara Falls (and everywhere in between). Give me a shout at 905-746-1551 for more deets.
For those outside of this area, check out the Wallcovering Installers Association to find an installer in your area.
How much does it cost to ship the wallpaper murals?
All wallpaper murals are shipped free within Canada and the Contiguous United States.
Here’s a list of the fees to ship your wallpaper outside North America.
Do your wallpaper murals ever come on sale?
Yes! Each month, one category of wallpaper will come on sale. Occasionally I put on flash sales or offer extra coupons for extra savings.

How long will it take for my mural to get to me?
You’ll get your wallpaper mural in 5-10 business days if you live in Canada or the USA. An exact shipping time frame is listed in each product description.
If you need your wall mural shipped quicker, please message or call me at toll free 1-844-446-1551 for a quote on expedited shipping.
Are your wall murals removable?
These wall murals are removable and will not damage your walls.
And guess what? You can even reuse them (or gift them to a friend if you’re tired of the design)!
Removable wallpaper is ideal for homeowners who may move and want to take their wallpaper mural with them and also for renters who are concerned about damaging walls when moving out.
How do I measure for my mural?
HEIGHT: When ordering your mural, make sure the wallpaper is slightly taller than your wall; an extra 2-3″ should be enough. Walls are never totally level and could be taller or shorter in some places and you’ll need an extra few inches to trim off.
WIDTH: If your wall mural is wider than your wall, just trim off the extra paper. If it’s shorter than your walls, centre the mural on the wall.
How do I remove my mural when I’m done?
If you install it properly (like shown in my installation video), all you need to do is pull the panel up from the bottom. It’ll peel right off the wall.
FAQs: Hand-Painted Wall Murals
How do you come up with a design for your painted wall murals?
My specialty is kids wall murals. I’ll work one-on-one with you (and your child) to come up with a unique design.
Bring on the inspiration: photos of other murals you like, paint swatches to colour match, ideas from Pinterest, or artwork from your child’s fave book.
Then I’ll let the creative juices flow before I share my ideas with you. I like to involve you every step of the way and LOVE hearing all your all ideas, concerns and inspiration all the way up to the last stroke of the paint brush.
Do you offer design consultations?
Yes, I offer free consultations by phone, email or Skype. I also offer a limited number of free in-home consultations every month.
For more information, please call 905-746-1551 in the greater Hamilton area or Toll Free 1-844-446-1551.
Can you give me a sketch of my mural?
Having a sketch before I paint your walls is an awesome idea. It makes sure we’re both on the same page with the design, colours, furniture placement and detail.
If you want a sketch before I hand-paint your wall mural, there is a $50 fee.
What kind of paint do you use?
I use non-toxic, acrylic paint and low VOC latex paint that gives a permanent, durable finish.
Both paints have no odour and are safe to use around pregnant mothers and in baby nurseries or kids bedrooms.
Are your painted wall murals washable?
Yes, you can wipe your wall mural with a damp cloth. I don’t suggest you use soap or other cleaners.
What happens if my mural gets marked after you’re done?
You can hire me to come back out and touch up your mural. Please call me at 1-844-446-1551 or message for more info.
How long does it take to paint a mural?
The average mural takes a day to paint, but it depends on the size, amount of detail, number of colours used and if there are any changes needed during the process.
Do I need to prepare the walls before you come?
If you’d like to save on cost, you’re welcome to prep the walls before I paint. It’s best to fill any holes and cracks and then prime and paint the wall in the highest quality latex paint you can find.
If you want a background for your mural (like a sky and grass) but are on a budget, you can paint this before I come.
Check out this blog post explaining how to paint your own background. If you need more help, message me or call me at toll free 1-844-446-1551.
Of course, if you have a higher budget, I’m happy to take your money.
In exchange for my services, of course. 🙂
Do you travel to paint your murals?
Yes, I paint my wall murals from Toronto to Niagara Falls (and everywhere in between).
I’d consider travelling to Hawaii during winter months! Teehee
How much does a custom painted mural cost?
The price of a personalized, hand-painted wall mural varies depending on the size and amount of detail. Prices start at $350 +HST. Contact me for a quote.
Do you offer discounts on your murals?
I do offer promotions and special offers throughout the year. I encourage you to become a member of my Newsletter Community for exclusive promotions.
How do I pay?
I accept payment by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, e-Transfer, PayPal and cash.
Do you give receipts?
Yes, I give receipts. This is especially important for you business owners. Gotta get those tax write-offs.
How do payments work for a painted wall mural?
Once you’ve booked a date for your hand-painted mural, I charge a 25% deposit to cover the cost of materials. The balance is due upon completion of the wall mural.
Are there cancellation fees?
If you need to cancel your scheduled wall mural for any reason, the following cancellation fees apply:
- 24 hours or more before the scheduled mural project – you’ll get a full refund of your 25% deposit, unless I bought special materials that are non-refundable i.e. latex paint.
- Day of the mural – you’ll lose your 25% deposit for a last minute cancellation.
In either case, you can always reschedule the mural at no loss.
