Large Abstract Wall Art
If you are unsure of which direction to go when it comes to the subject of the large scale artwork, or you are the sort of person ( like me ! ) that gets quickly bored by the décor around you, abstract wall art is your new best friend. Abstract designs are nondescript and don't have to follow any particular theme with other objects or items within the room.
The colours of the large abstract wall art that you choose can easily make or break the overall effectiveness of your room. We suggest that you either stick to neutral tones that will tie in with any colour scheme you have, or pick colour elements from other items of décor or furniture. This will ultimately produce a scheme that is seamless and cohesive with the rest of the room. A good tip, if you are visiting a physical shop, is to take colour swatches or cushions ( for example ) with you. This way you can be sure to get a good match before making your final purchase.

Map Wall Art
Large maps not only look impressive on a large wall area but also serve to aid learning and education. Family members will become adept at knowing the location of countries and cities around the world, many of which they may never have known even existed previously. The extraordinary amount of detail and information that some maps hold is truly inspiring.
There are different map wall art options from which to choose, whether it be a more simplistic world map wall sticker, a map wall hanging tapestry or a large map mural like the example shown. All have their place in any home with the right surroundings and complementary décor. It very much comes down to personal choice and ultimately what you are willing to spend.

Large Metal Wall Art
Metal artwork has come a long way from what was once just something used for decoration on ships centuries ago - they now stand as elegant additions in both old and new homes alike. Metal wall décor particularly is becoming more and more popular, from tiny obscure decorations, to huge all-encompassing art covering an entire wall surface with its extravagant design.
Abstract metal artwork in particular is perfect for adding a modern look to any space. It can be flamboyant, colourful and geometrical all at the same time, which means that it is likely to grab your attention as soon as you enter the room.
Large metal wall art is a great way to add an eye-catching focal point to any room ! Take your time to find a perfect design that you can admire for many years to come and make sure to shop around for the best pieces within your price range.
When it comes to large wall décor ideas, pick a size of wall art and style that suits your space and décor. It's no good going ultra modern with a particular canvas design when your room style is very traditional, or placing a tiny clock in the centre of a very large wall ! Be sensible in your treatment of the wall space, don't let the wall art over power everything around it and you won't go far wrong. Good luck !
