Using Wrought Iron Wall Décor To Accent White Walls

Dec 20, 2007
White walls are the most common wall color in homes and apartments in the United States and beyond. White, and off-white shades are considered neutral colors that can enhance decorating more than colored walls. They add a feeling of spaciousness to the room and can easily be added to from one décor to another. However, white walls are also very plain and simple, and dressing them up can be difficult to do in a unique and pleasant fashion. Fortunately, the world of wrought iron wall décor has increased the decorating ability of nearly any white wall.

Whether your walls are textured, flat paint, or a glossy finish, wrought iron wall décor shows up beautifully against the light surface. And above all, the right pieces present a very classy look to even the most modest of homes. Wrought iron wall décor is becoming easier to find. This is both a positive and a negative aspect of the metal wall hangings. While these very intriguing wall hangings are becoming easier to find. However, mass produced wall hangings provide wall hangings identical to your neighbors. Finding unique wrought iron wall hanging takes a little more effort, but it is well worth the time and the money.

Using wrought iron wall hangings to accent white walls can be done in a very stylish and tasteful manner. The black and white ambiance created by this decorating method can be added to via a few black and white photographs or oil paintings in tastefully chosen frames. The use of color will only work in select rooms with select wall hangings. Muted colors will work better in most instances than strong colors, unless you choose to go with a strong primary color, such as red.

One of the newer crazes in wrought iron wall hangings involves the use of candles in the hanging itself. For these to work, and they can be beautiful when they work well, the hanging must be absolutely straight. The smallest deviation to the left or the right will cause the candle wax to run off to one side instead of burning straight down. This can create a phenomenal mess is left unsupervised for a period of time, which is also a fire hazard.

Metal wall hangings can be found in many antique or specialty shops, including those online. The ones available from large chain stores are not going to be unique, and with the increase in their popularity, uniqueness is going to be the key to designing a room around the wall hanging. Their dark against light design makes them a stand alone piece, and the room can then fall in line under the hanging. Using bold, simple themes to accent the wall hangings will prevent the room from becoming dominated by busy abstract visual noise.

Metal wall hangings can make an excellent and simple accent for the white walls of a hallway or stair case. These accent pieces can bring out the simplicity of the white wall in a tasteful and beautiful statement.
