Wall Decor / June 16, 2018 / Lucia Valdivia.
If you are trying to decorate a small home, it can sometimes feel like your options are limited. And while there is not much you can do to add square footage, there are plenty of ways to make your tiny apartment feel perfectly put together. The key is taking advantage of the largest open spaces you have, your walls. Those empty walls are filled with possibilities and a few additions can make a small apartment feel cozy and stylish, instead of stark and cramped.
There are also large format canvases or removable wallpaper murals you can use to create a big, dramatic focal point. Last thing, choose art that is vibrant or graphic or powerful. Otherwise, what is the point? Next, decide how high to hang your wall art. Wall art height is the concept that goes wrong the most. The general rule of thumb is to hang wall art at your sight line, so you do not have to look up too high or too low at it.
Practical and pleasing to the eye, this oversized calendar is ideal for a family kitchen or personal office. Bikes as wall decor? Contemporary wood mounts look chic and hold the colorful bicycles in place. Think outside the box when it comes to salvaged pieces. Here, a railroad crossing sign adds vintage flair to an otherwise empty wall.
There are many ways you can hang wall art and, depending on the weight of the art, you may be able to avoid putting holes in the walls by using adhesive removable mounting tabs. Wall decor comes in all shapes and sizes. There is traditional framed art, lightweight and unframed canvases, object collages, metal wall sculptures and more.
