What Houzz contributors are saying:
7. Murals. A floor-to-ceiling map installation can transform an awkward hallway into an educational opportunity. Don't like the look? Wall decals and murals come in all sorts of customizable options, and they're often more affordable than wallpaper.
The hallway leading to their daughters' bedrooms is lined with world map wallpaper found in the SkyMall catalog. "We actually had to buy two since we didn't want to sacrifice any land masses when we papered around the door in the middle," Enid explains. "You can't see a seam or any break in the pattern of water — it just looks as if the Pacific Ocean stretched wide enough to accommodate the door," Enid says. Whitewashing the wallpaper after hanging toned down the bright hues.
