Illusionary space can be created beyond the wall by means of a landscape scene, which is painted to be seen through these illusionary architectural openings mentioned above. This works as effectively as the much more costly renovation of breaking through walls and ceilings.
Certain walls that you may want windows or doors looking out to scenes may not be exterior walls, therefore the construction is not possible. Only the illusionary painting is!

Faux finishes can save you money by mimicking costly exotic marbles, woods semi-precious stones, some of which are not available. In addition, you can create fantasy marbles in all colors, and all types of textures and mixed media finishes that do not exist in nature or anywhere else.
Murals and faux finishes can greatly increase the value of your home. Many people do them before they move. They sell their houses faster and at a better price, especially when the prospective owner falls in
love with the artwork. This works especially well, when many houses in your neighborhood are for sale.
