Tell us about Murrays Interiors…

Established in 1972, all of our staff have over 20 years’ experience each. We believe in providing great products and service at a competitive price. We have over 450 wallpaper books to select from and a huge fabric range to view, touch and feel. We can sell the fabric alone so our customers can make their own items or we offer a full service from measure to installation. Our team consists of Andrea, Melissa, Michelle, Debbie and Kerry.

Why should people choose wallpaper over paint?

Wallpaper adds dimension and depth to a room that paint cannot offer. Try wallpapering the ceiling or stair risers. Jazzing up the inside of the pantry or inside your walk in wardrobe.

Should people hang their own wallpaper?

It depends – some are easy to hang and OK for the DIY-er. However, murals and specialty wallpapers can be a little tricky. It's best to get an experienced hanger especially if they are in the higher price range.

Do you have any tips for those wanting to freshen up their homes for spring?

Introducing a splash of colour on a feature wall or soft furnishings can brighten up a tired room.

Can you forecast some trends for us for summer 2015?

Definitely bright colours, bold patterns and metallics are going to be strong influences. Stripes and textures are timeless.

Name some key designers you stock?

Some of our favourites are Eijffinger, Mokum including Catherine Martin, Osborne & Little, Candice Olsen, John Paul Gautier and Designers Guild.

What else does your business offer?

We offer a re-upholstery service, timber and Polyresin shutters, external awnings, as well as curtains and blinds.

Tell us a little more about your window furnishings...

Window furnishings may be required to soften a room or for problems with west facing windows. Whatever the reason, we make sure we match the right products for the job. We offer curtains and all types of blinds, including custom roman blinds.  We are also a Luxaflex retailer, offering their Polyresin shutters. It has a 20-year warranty and can be easily taken outside and be cleaned with the hose.
