Murals are a really exciting way to create real impact in your home or business, because they are designed exactly as you want and hand painted onto the wall they will be totally unique to you. A stunning addition to you business or home that will have an amazing impact that will last for years.

The first thing you need to do when thinking of having a mural painted is to decide, Who, What, Where and When.

Who - is the mural for?

What - do you want the mural to be of? Think - What impact do you want it to make?

Where - would you like the mural to be? inside or outside, the whole room, one wall, part of a wall.

When- will you be ready for the mural to be painted?

Once these basic ideas have been formed then the fun begins.
If you don't have a clear idea of what you want but you know where you would like it, don't worry. I am happy to discuss your ideas and come up with a number of designs for you to choose from.
On the other hand you may now exactly what you want, with clear visions of the desired finish, you may have images and in depth details of what you are after. Again, I am happy to discuss these ideas and come up with a final design.

The next step would be to email me with as much information as possible. Feel free to add photographs of the room and any images you have in mind to the email. my email address is
If you prefer we can discuss your ideas over the phone  - you can find my number here - /contact-akers-of-art or request a call through my contact form. 

We can then meet face to face free of charge to go through your ideas and come up with a plan. 

Once I have a clear idea of what you are after I will start the design process. I will give you options to choose from by designing 2-3 different options.

We can then meet for me to show you the designs and give you a quote for the job which will include the design process. 
Once all is agreed the mural painting can begin. I require a 30% deposit before the painting begins. This deposit will be taken away from the final invoice which will need to be paid within 10 days of the mural being completed. 

This is meant to be a fun and exciting process for you and I hope to relieve you of any stress in the design process, so get thinking and let your imagination run wild.
I would love to bring your ideas to life.
