Just a few years ago, The Metal Shack did not exist. However, in October of 2015, after seeing some beautiful metal art, we were immediately inspired, and we knew we had to start our own metal wall decor business. We were captivated by the aesthetics of metal wall art, and we fell in love with the texture, and how easily it could complement virtually every kind of interior design style. It wasn’t long before The Metal Shack was born.
Fast forward to today, and we offer a multitude of metal wall art products with thousands of happy customers. However, if you’re still on the fence about our metal signs, you might be asking, “What makes wall art so much better than any other kind of wall decor?” It’s a good question and a valid one. We believe there are several advantages to metal signs. Here are just a few reasons why metal wall decor can be a boon to your interior design:
Metal Wall Art is More Durable and Long-Lasting
One of the biggest, most obvious advantages of metal wall decor is that it’s built to last. Metal signs are hardy, durable, and can be moved around and hung wherever you want, with minimal risk of being damaged. That’s not to say that you should be rough with them, but in general, they’re going to last a lot longer than other types of wall art and can take much more punishment.
Metal wall art has astounding longevity. The other most common types of signs are plastic and wood, both of which have their disadvantages. Plastic can break from a fall, and wood, if not properly cared for, can erode in quality over time, and doesn’t do too well when exposed to the elements. Metal, on the other hand, can hold the same quality five years down the line from the day it was purchased.
If you’re looking for text wall art, canvases are a popular option. While this can be beautiful for your home decor, it has its disadvantages — canvas is easily damaged, and irreparable when it takes abuse. This can be a problem, especially in a home that has children. We’ve had customers who have turned to metal wall decor after unruly kids have caused previous decorations to fall or break. Metal wall art is a great choice for a home with children, as it is immune to most of the damages they’re capable of causing.
Metal Wall Art is Easy to Hang
One thing customers love about our inspirational metal signs is how easy they are to hang. Because our signs are cut from sheets of metal with specialized machines, we can create any shape we want. As a result, most of our signs deviate from the traditional rectangular format, allowing us to create beautiful text shapes.
As it turns out, this makes our signs extremely easy to hang. Because each one is its own shape that is made out of text, there are many gaps, hooks, and openings inherent in the design. This allows you to put pins, nails, or screws in the places where it’s most convenient. You rarely need more than two to four screws to mount the sign on, and since our signs aren’t rectangular, you can play around with the orientation to create the exact effect you want.
With text signs, sometimes it’s just “right” for the room to have it aligned slightly diagonally. Or, you might opt to have it straight and true. Whatever you decide, mounting it on your wall is easier than it’s ever been. You don’t have to worry about balancing a rectangular frame precisely on some screws, and then redoing it because it’s not perfectly straight. You don’t have to worry about fiddling with an annoying wire on the back. If you want a hassle-free experience, you can’t go wrong with our metal text wall art.
Metal Wall Art is Unique and Eye-Catching
One of the things we love most about metal wall decor is how relentlessly unique it is. At this point, many familiar motifs have established themselves as the norm in interior design. You’ve seen them all before — canvas prints, text printed out or painted onto wooden boards, framed pieces, and so on.
However, metal art isn’t quite as common in most homes. It still hasn’t reached the point where it’s a “go-to” choice for interior design, and the truth is that many wall art sellers and manufacturers don’t have the equipment that’s necessary to produce high-quality, custom-cut metal signs. This makes them harder to find. This isn’t the worst thing, however — it means that every piece of metal wall decor is unique, and it will be sure to draw attention from your house guests and make you feel right at home.
Additionally, at the Metal Shack, we take extra care to ensure that every single one of our products is completely unique. Most of our products are motivational and inspirational wall art in the form of text. However, it’s not as simple as us just typing out a message in a fancy font, and then calling it a day. We consider every single sign to be a piece of art unto itself, so we deliberately design every single sign, arranging the text and choosing the font carefully to ensure that it’s the most visually appealing as can be.
Metal Wall Art is Easy for Interior Design
Let’s just come to terms with the fact that not everybody is born with natural interior design talents. Some people can masterfully arrange a beautiful room with seemingly no effort, no matter what kind of supplies, furniture, or wall decor they have on hand. Others might stress themselves out for days or weeks trying to create an aesthetically pleasing layout, only to fall short. However, it’s okay if you’re not an interior design wizard, especially if you’re using metal wall art.
Metal wall decor is unique in that it’s almost universally compatible with every decorating style. Somehow, metal art finds a way to blend in with just about every motif. It can look clean and smooth in a minimalistic modern design, and just as easily accentuate a rustic, old-fashioned country look. The natural gray colors of the metal mix well with most colors, which usually allows metal wall decor to blend in with monochromatic rooms just as well as bright colorful ones.
While metal wall decor won’t work 100 percent of the time for certain decorating styles, it does work most of the time, and it can add some much-needed flair to a room that might be lacking that certain something. It’s amazing how quickly a tasteful metal sign can add classy style to an interior space. Metal signs are very much a “one size fits all” for decorating purposes, so if you want something that’s easy to work with, this is one of your best options!
