It’s hard to argue with the fact that your choice of furniture and decoration has a significant impact on the feeling and ambiance of your home. Extensive research has and continues to be done about the subject, giving rise to complex philosophies such as the Chinese Feng Shui. Students go to school full-time to learn about interior design and proceed to make careers about it, and new advances in furniture and design all depend on the idea that your decorations create a certain energy in your home.
As experts in design, we firmly hold these beliefs to be true at The Metal Shack, and that’s why we’re committed to providing our clients with high-quality metal signs that communicate messages of hope, inspiration, and positivity.
Indeed, there are many different types of atmosphere that you can create in your home, and we want to help those people who are interested in creating a home that’s happy, hopeful, and family-oriented. That’s why the majority of our metal signs take the form of word art, capturing inspiring quotes and famous scriptures.
Here are some reasons why hanging some of our motivational wall art in your home will result in positive energy throughout:
Inspirational Messages Help to Foster Positive Feelings
First of all, let’s go with one of the most obvious points: Motivational messages help us feel hopeful. This has nothing to do with the aesthetics of the word art, the positioning in the home, or where you mount it; it has everything to do with the message itself.
There is a reason why positive quotes are propagated everywhere, referenced in posters, books, movies, decorations, and more. Inspiring words help to foster a positive belief system where we hope for good outcomes instead of focusing on negative ones.
Did you know that scientific studies have confirmed that negative thinking is detrimental to our well-being? In this article, this is referred to as the “nocebo effect,” where negative thoughts are often a means of self-sabotage. In other words, if we believe in negative outcomes, we ensure them for ourselves.
Incidentally, the opposite is also true — the more we foster positive thoughts, the better outcomes we’re likely to experience. By believing in success at all times, we’re subconsciously more inclined to go through the effort and energy to secure said success.
That’s why we like selling motivational wall art quotes — regardless of their aesthetic design, the quotes in and of themselves fill people with hope. In today’s world where many adults, students, and families are faced with crushing responsibilities and numerous burdens, it can always help to be surrounded by enlightening and hopeful messages.
The Power of Faith
In addition to inspiring quotes and messages, we also sell an abundant amount of scripture-based wall art. While we acknowledge that not everybody holds Christian beliefs, we know that many of our clients do, and if faith is a big part of your life, that can also be something that empowers you in your day-to-day activities.
Many people find daily scripture study to be a source of personal strength. However, in today’s world that’s so fast-paced, it can be very difficult to find time to get some reading in every day. That’s one reason why we believe scripture wall art to be a boon to those people who hold their religious beliefs dearly — it helps to evoke the empowering and inspiring messages of the scriptures on a daily basis.
For those who are highly faithful, whether you follow Christianity or any other belief system, religious values give them strength in ways that other things just don’t. It’s hard to put into words, but it goes beyond the science of well-positioned interior design, color theory, or energy circulation in one’s home. The power of faith and religion is powerful indeed, and if there is anyone who draws strength from that, we want our signs to accentuate those effects.
Scriptures are also useful for being a light in a time of darkness. Everyday life can be rough, and stress can wear us down and make things feel hopeless. One thing that religious messages are best at is reminding us that the darkness is only temporary.
Having signs in your home can lift up anyone who needs it. Even if you’re doing just fine and dandy, perhaps your child is struggling. Perhaps you have a friend or a guest over, and they take solace in one of your signs. You never know who might benefit from having inspiring word art on your walls, but one thing is for sure — it’s never going to be a bad thing.
The Connection of Positive Energy to Interior Design
Our first two points have focused on the actual message and meaning of our inspirational signs, which can be powerful. But even if you remove that entirely, even if you hypothetically assume that our signs are just arbitrary shapes with no meaning, there’s something to be said about the power of good interior design, and how it can foster a good energy in your home.
It’s hard to know where to start — but it’s important to begin with the fact that scientific studies have found links between your subconscious behavior and interior design. Research has shown over and over that different layouts, spatial compositions, color choice, and furniture all have varying effects on how you think and feel, even if you’re not cognizant of it.
That being said, we have designed our signs to be as visually appealing, offering a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors that can work in harmony with the rest of your interior design.
Here are some advantages that our signs offer that make for good interior design:
The signs are primarily black or gray — neutral tones that work with almost any color
- The signs are all cut into unique shapes, allowing flexibility in how you pair it with other wall art or furniture
- The signs can be mounted an inch or two from the wall, creating a “3D” effect that pops out of the wall
- The signs are extremely easy to mount, allowing flexibility in where you’re able to place them
- Our signs come in a variety of sizes, allowing you to find a solution for any wall you’re trying to fill
We’ve mentioned in another blog post about interior design tricks that create good energy, and our signs are made with this in mind.
