It comes ready to hang, you're only problem will be deciding where - it will fit in, in so many places you will find it difficult to choose. It is obviously made by skilled artisans to a high standard. You will not be disappointed.

More sun and moon fun with this cute plaque. It is light and some people have complained that the color is darker than expected. But overall, it is value for the money asked for it and it will certainly add a point of interest to a room. I have a feeling it will be better kept indoors although it does say it can be used outside.

Tips On Showcasing Metal Suns In The Home To Their Full Potential

The shape of a sun is a image that can have a profound positive effect on us and it is no surprise that it has become popular in interior design through metal sun wall décor. These suns come in a range of shapes, styles, metals and colours to suit different tastes and, when used to their full potential, they can have a big impact on feel of a room while also enhancing colour schemes and themes.

The type of metal can alter the effect that the sun will have and its ideal placement.

Different metals go in and out of fashion in interior design trends and they all have a different effect on the feel of the sun and its impact on a room. Some clean copper models are meant to be indoors in warm rooms with complementary features like rustic kitchens, some silvery steel and alloy offerings work better in rooms where design overrules comfort and rough, beaten bronzes bring a sense of outdoor sculpture indoors, perhaps making them better suited to transitional rooms like conservatories and summer houses.

Minimalist, abstract designs v.s. bold, childlike ones.

The range of designs for metal sun wall décor is vast as designers take inspiration from a universal theme and run with it. In many adult rooms where décor is carefully considered and refined, artistic offerings that are more minimalist or abstract can be quite complementary. These pieces can also make more of a statement so if you are looking for a conversation starter on a focal wall, something with striking lines, plenty of bold rays or an odd twist on the design would be ideal. Of course there is also the other end of the metal sun spectrum, the detailed, almost childlike suns with their smiling faces that are too warm and comforting for a stark living room.

Whichever style you choose, always think about the colour and how it will have an impact on the room and other furnishings.

Often these metal suns are crafted purely out of that one material, letting the colour of the iron or copper do the talking or allowing the colour of wall to contrast against it through the gaps in the rays. This is great if you want a bold shape on a brightly coloured wall but a more subtle approach is to take a sun with colours included, such as those with coloured glass centres or ceramic or shell designs at the ends of the rays and pick out other objects and furnishings – lamps, vases, cushions, etc – to match those hues. Furthermore, the soft, seaside tones created by shell designs also adds to a room with a marine or nautical theme, which leads nicely to the final point.

Colour is a great starting point for a room but so is a theme or a culture.

Last but not least, consider metal suns that have some cultural significance. Sometimes a sun is just that, a standard motif that is common in western culture; other times, a sun can have a much different shape and style and be closely associated with a specific culture or region. The clean, laser-cut shapes of an Oriental sun, for example, not only look good in a clean, minimalist room but can work with other Eastern designs and are therefore a great wall decoration in rooms with a Japanese feel when there isn't the space for bolder artwork.

These beautiful Southwestern metal suns would certainly be the focal point of any room in your home or office.

This stylized sun will look great indoors or out. The standard of the workmanship is second to none and well lives up to Regal Art & Gift's reputation. I really can't recommend their work highly enough. OK so they are not cheap but each sculpture is worth every penny. I never hesitate to buy their stunning metal wall art. You just know each piece is hand created using high quality materials and excellent techniques that will last forever. This piece in particular has everything you want to capture attention and to create a striking focal point.

Husband and wife team Audrey and Bill Costello have produced another cracking item with this 3D metal sun. They hand produce much of their work so no two sculptures are ever exactly the same. This pretty one comes in burnt umber shades and with the couple’s signature patina effect, it is one to treasure. It is designed to hang anywhere, home, office, dorm or garden. The paint used is the same as that used in the auto industry which means it will not fade and will last years outside. Definitely one for me.

Don't you just love the expression on this smiley sun? He looks a bit on the sleepy side to me but I would still enjoy waking up to that face. Use it to greet visitors to your home for an instant conversation starter. Some people advised on spraying it with a rust proofing when you put it out of doors. Mind you if you like an aging look on your sculpture, you might consider leaving it alone to see how it weathers. I sometimes think weathering adds to the appeal but everyone's taste is different. Of course if you hang it indoors that won't be a problem. This would make a great addition to a bathroom, study, den or bedroom. Just what you need when it is damp and gloomy outside.

Now this metal wall plaque is all ready to hang as soon as it arrives. You can buy it with a red face on a blue background or an all red one depending on your taste. Personally I prefer the red face on the blue background, I don't think the all red one stands out nearly so well but you may disagree. Some folk think the all red one looks like copper when it is in sunlight so that might be something you would enjoy. No matter which you choose you will not be disappointed. This is one piece guaranteed to raise a smile on everyone. It is made from high grade steel and powder coated to prevent rusting. A must-have for every yard.
