Using Abstract Metal Art to Decorate a Large Wall

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

Filling a wall with art can be particularly difficult if the wall is large.  It comes down to deciding whether one piece or several pieces will work best.  One of the most visually dynamic ways to enhance the look of a large wall is by hanging abstract large metal art pieces.

Metal artwork is unique, because it incorporates natural colors and tones while also providing bursts of color.  Abstract art is especially unique due to its unusual design.  If choosing to decorate a large wall with abstract art, there are a few different styles to consider.

Single pieces, like the 40″ wide Swimming Nautilus Contemporary Wall Hanging,yhst-23119701400359_2111_38655470 are perfect for adding one bold focal point in the room.  Make sure that the piece is large enough that it is not dwarfed by the size of the wall.  If the wall is so big that one abstract piece is simply not enough, you may need to consider wall panels.

With panels measuring in at 24″ wide and 28″ high, pieces such as the Abstract Sphere Contemporary Metal Wall Art Set of 3, are ideal for extra-large walls.  They cover over six feet of wall width, which ensures that they will not be overshadowed by wall space.  Multiple panels are a great way to get the width needed without sacrificing look and style.

Choose wall art that will fit the style of the room.  Abstract pieces that enhance the room’s beauty are essential when designing a modern home.  Consider all your choices carefully before selecting art for your large wall.
