Last updated on June 6, 2024

Want to add some wood art to your life and not only to hang something on a wall? Here are some ideas that go beyond wall decor. Read on!

Decorating with wood art, beyond just hanging it on your walls, is a lot like decorating with other types of art. The key is to find a piece that fits the theme of your space. The most common types of wood art are: wood signs, wood plaques, wood boxes, and wood bowls. However, there are many other more unique types of wood art that can be used to add character to any room.

Of course, you should also consider what you are trying to decorate, and whether or not wood art will work with the existing design. For example, a wood sign that says “Welcome” will probably clash with an office space that has a more modern look.

We all know about how big wall art is, but it is far from the only type of art you can display in your home. For example, a lot of people aren’t aware that you can buy wood art. This includes sculptures, vases, candle holders, plaques, and more. Wooden plaques with inspirational quotes are a popular choice for people looking for something to add some pop to their home.

Here are more ideas for inspiration on choosing wood art.
