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.
The newest entry into the world of decorative wall decor used by the masses is metal wall art. Traditionally made of iron or other heavy metal, it's easy to find unique pieces that perhaps weren't originally used in this capacity in an antique or thrift store. Going to places such as that and looking at items with a different set of eyes makes it possible to turn any metal item from the past into decorative wall decor. From street signs to horseshoes, people are taking things from long ago and using them to create an interesting display on their walls. It's also a less expensive way to decorate.
One very popular type of modern decor is called minimalist decor. In this decorating style less is more. The idea is to keep furnishings and accents to a minimum. Generally, all the pieces in the room will have their space and function and nothing more is added. If you have ever seen pictures of modern homes where there is a small smattering of furniture in a large room and a lot of open space left, this is a great example of minimalism.
