Wall decor in your home is almost as important as the furnishings-whilst some homes might look great with absolutely no wall mirrors or wall art, most will look rather dull. A well chosen painting or mirror can greatly enhance any room, but it is vital that the piece is hung correctly. Pictures and wall mirrors should be hung at eye level. This depends on whether the majority of people will be standing or seated in the room at any given time. For example, in a dining room, a piece of wall art or a wall mirror could be hung lower.
Lighting is an important consideration for wall art. Carefully placed spotlights can draw attention to an attractive piece of artwork. The lighting does, however, need to be subdued to avoid inadvertent glare. Be careful to balance the room by not placing all your wall decor in one half of the room. Experiment with the positioning before you commit to hanging the pieces. You can create a nice touch of diversity by using different sized frames in paintings and mirrors.
Another fun and easy item to use as wall art that can be found at many yard sales, thrift stores, junkyards, and antique stores are old windows and doors. Finding a vintage window can be an interesting way to add an old world feel to any room. Using a door on a large wall can add something unexpected to the room. It's fun to hunt around for cool and interesting doors and windows. Whatever your style, you can find something to make the room your own with decorative wall decor.
