Wall Decor / September 3, 2018 / Hannah Huston.
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 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.
Styled ledges are having a moment. This is the perfect option if you are a person who likes to switch things up frequently. Do you like the idea of a tapestry but want something more glam? Go for a beaded wall hanging. Here, the beaded wall piece beautifully accentuates the teal upholstered chair. Blow up your own black and white photo, and hang it on a prominent wall to create a meaningful art piece on the cheap.
Are you having trouble deciding what size or type of wall decor to choose or how to hang pictures? A good rule of thumb is to choose wall art that takes up the width of the wall, minus 6-12 inches on each side, so it looks like it is centered, like the image above. For example, you have a 36 inch wall. Leave about 6 inches on each side of the piece of art, which means you should choose something around 24 inches wide.
