Multicolored Geometric Murals

To decorate the interiors, not only do you have to look at the furniture and objects, you also have to take into account the designs that provide a defined image through geometries.

Generally, you usually apply a single shade on the walls of rooms. If you want to make the environment more dynamic and provide more striking aesthetic content, you have the option of working with multicolored geometric murals.

You may feel the need to make a resounding change at home. Sometimes you get bored with the components that make up the decoration; however, you’re not quite sure what to choose or where to direct the new design.

If you want to set a new trend and build a focussed and particular internal discourse, you can enrich the environment through other solutions that differ from the treatments that you normally use.

Murals made up of rhombuses

One of the most interesting geometric shapes is the rhombus. It’s usually vertical, however, it can also be horizontal. Its appearance helps create a sense of verticality.
They can be made up of only two colors to produce a simple contrast, for example on a rug. But if you’re looking for more youthful and daring content, you can use different shades and achieve a design that is more attractive and striking.

This type of mural is used in educational or recreational settings (toy libraries, children’s centers, schools, etc.). There is no doubt that the perception of joy and enthusiasm is reflected through the chromatic diversity present on the surface.

A very special idea to modernize spaces.

Different formats for the walls

When working on geometric murals, it’s essential to choose the appropriate shapes and decide on those that fit correctly with the style you want to define. Here is some inspiration:

  • There are zig-zag designs that sit in the background, are not so common and are very striking. They are made up of lines that generate angles and colors are introduced in between to achieve a renovation of the wall.
  • Another case is equilateral triangles. Their sizes may vary; some are large, while others are smaller. Between all of them, a dynamic image can be built through polychromy.
  • Don’t forget about squares. The checkered effect that perfectly simulates a chess board is perfect. Each square can also be of a different color to configure a much richer framework.
  • If you want a design that is more informal and original, there is also the possibility of combining several of these shapes. In this sense, the geometries are juxtaposed and the colors are arranged in a more random way to achieve a much more relaxed appearance.

How are circumferences presented?

If you want to give your house a slightly more retro touch, you can use circumferences, either individualized or superimposed. This is a type of design that was popular in commercial establishments in the 60s and 70s.
Today, they can be worked in the same way as the geometric shapes mentioned above. However, you have the option of arranging them in order and aligned or, simply, distributing them over the entire surface in a more anarchic way.

They can also be presented as semicircles or arches. Similarly, they can alternate with other shapes, such as stars, triangles, or squares. A certain degree of schematization and reduction of aesthetics to simple forms is achieved.

A design that does not complicate the internal image of the home at all.

Materials to work with geometric murals

Undoubtedly, painting is one of the most functional resources for geometrics. However, one of the trends gaining more and more followers is wallpaper. The design has already been made, you just have to stick it to the wall.

Another case is the mosaic, which is made up of small pieces which form a defined picture. In this way, a very clear objective is achieved: the application of a design that is reminiscent of the modernism of the early twentieth century and works well in homes of today.
