C-Note’s Untitled 83

This is an article about distinctive metal prints. It features metal prints, metal prints online, wall art metal prints, metal prints versus canvas, and metal prints at Costco that are for Silicon Valley homes, and offices.

Every Silicon Valley home and office needs a certain something to make it stand out, and metal prints are that special something that will set your space apart from the rest. Made from lightweight aluminum, metal prints have all the benefits of traditional canvas wall art, but with the extra durability that comes with framing and hanging a piece of metal on your wall. 

Benefits of metal prints

A metal print is a unique and fun way to decorate your home. They come in different shapes, sizes, designs, and styles. Unlike canvas prints or digital photo frames, metal prints are able to stand out and be noticed due to their beautiful sheen that adds an extra level of beauty. There are two main kinds of metal prints: aluminum prints and steel prints. The main difference between these two types of metal prints is how they’re made. Aluminum prints are created by taking an image and transferring it onto an aluminum sheet using heat sublimation technology. Steel prints are made by laser etching images into sheets of steel and then coating them with a layer of ceramic paint to protect them from rusting.

What type of home can benefit from unique metal wall art?

Any home with an open floor plan could benefit from distinctive metal wall art—which is probably why it’s so popular in Silicon Valley. With large windows and high ceilings, it’s hard to find a wall that doesn’t need something extra. Though some may think of metal as cold or industrial, choosing interesting prints can enhance the rooms that have large windows, high ceilings, or concrete floors. And if you’re worried about how to hang your new artwork, don’t be: Most metal prints arrive ready to hang!

Metal wall art is a distinctive and beautiful option to make your home truly yours. While you can’t put anything on a concrete wall, metal prints are an ideal way to decorate. They come in many different sizes and shapes, as well as various designs. When thinking about how you want to display your art, consider getting it professionally installed to ensure it will last. If you decide to install it yourself, be sure that there is nothing flammable or sharp behind or underneath where you plan to hang your piece. If there is something that could damage your artwork, always use protection. For example, if there are candles nearby or other heat sources such as fireplaces or vents, always use Plexiglas instead of glass.
