Wall Decor / September 3, 2018 / Romina Doran.
Mirrors reflect light, helping a small space to feel bigger and brighter. Try hanging an oversize mirror, or display several smaller pieces salon style. Let your walls transport you to another place by adding a mural. Whether you hand paint it or choose a wall covering, the motif will make a big impact. If you have run out of floor space for bookshelves, take your collection to the 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.
If you love the look of a gallery wall, but would also like to avoid the task of spacing and hanging everything just right, get a similar effect by using floating shelves and picture ledges. These unobtrusive shelves are easy to hang, try grouping two or three on a wall together. They are great for displaying a mix of framed photos and art alongside interesting items like small plants, carefully curated antique knickknacks, table clocks and stoneware vases.
The gallery wall, and finally, if you have a few smaller pieces that you love, why not create a gallery wall? Hang the largest in your collection first and then work out from the centre to create a grouping that has the most visual appeal. For a symmetrical display, the main wall art can be at the centre with smaller pieces of art at equal distances around it.
