How To Decorate With Metal Wall Artwork

If you want to give your home a casually elegant look, consider decorating your walls with eye-catching metal artwork. Metal wall art comes in a wide variety of styles, ranging from rustic to modern, so you'll have no problem choosing pieces that coordinate with your preferred home decor look. 

Metal wall art is available in several different types of finishes and colors, such as black wrought iron, shiny silver or chrome and gleaming gold. You can find pieces to match any room in your home, including bedrooms, bathrooms and even kitchen and living rooms.

When choosing the ideal metal wall artwork decor for your home, consider a room's overall decor style and color scheme. For instance, if your furniture features silver hardware, such as knobs or legs, choose silver artwork. For a more casual look, such as in a cabin, go with wrought iron or distressed bronze.

Here are some metal wall artwork ideas according to room style and theme:

1. Nautical 

If you live in a beach or lake house or just want to give your home the feel of one, enhance your walls with nautical-themed artwork. As an idea, create a room focal point by hanging a large metal anchor over a fireplace or bed headboard. You could also use a nautical compass replica as well for an authentic vibe. 

Other beach and nautical-inspired metal artwork designs include fish, sharks, seahorses, sailboats, sea turtles, coral reefs, starfish, and sand dollars. For a fun, whimsical look, choose painted metal artwork in bright, vibrant colors such as turquoise, orange, and yellow. 

2. Nature 

Bring a bit of the outdoors in with nature-inspired metal wall decor. Some design options include trees, leaves, wildlife such as bear, deer, wolves, birds, and even intricate woodsy scenes complete with mountains and forests.

Most nature-themed artwork will be constructed with wrought iron, copper, and other earthy metals. You can also use the pieces to enhance porch walls and the exterior of your home if they're approved for outdoor use.

3. Food 

If you want to create a quaint, cafe-inspired look in your kitchen or dining room, metal wall artwork can help add to the look and feel. Options include whimsical metal fork, spoon, and knife designs, coffee pot and coffee mug motifs, and even painted pieces featuring colorful fruit such as apples, oranges, and bananas. 

The metal artwork will help give a plain kitchen or dining space a warm, personal touch without taking up any space in the room.
