There is a new hype in interior-decoration-world that I’ve been seeing everywhere lately. The trend I’m talking about is world maps. I’ve seen a lot of small ones but especially the huge ones are very trendy right now. And let me tell you, a world map isn’t just very pretty, it can also come in handy if you’re like me and you have no idea where certain countries are located. So, overall I think it’s a very cool and handy trend and therefore I want to tell you more about this trend in today’s post. So, if you’re interested in this world map trend and if you want to know more about it and see some inspiration pictures, make sure you continue reading!
The different materials
When you’re choosing a world map, the first thing you can look at is what material it is made of. To create a world map, you can use different kinds of materials. You can use wood, canvas, poster paper, aluminum or glass. The fun thing about this is that each of these materials has its very own character. For example: glass has a very modern and clean look to it, while wood is more rural and natural looking. A world map on aluminum however is very industrial and city-proof.
In other words: by choosing a material that suits your style, the world map you buy will fit perfectly in your interior.
Unique world maps
Aside from choosing between different materials, there are also a lot of different kinds of world maps to choose from. Let me give you an example. There are historical word maps. These maps have a very unique and especially vintage look. It’s a very original decoration for every wall and because vintage is so trendy these days, it will definitely impress your friends!
Another kind of world map you can choose is a more trendy one, one with unique designs. For example one with a pattern made out of dots or one made using watercolour paint. That creates a whole different look. The fun thing about these kinds op maps is that they are made with the purpose of looking pretty instead of being informative. So if you do already know where every country is located in this world, this might be a great option for you!
The last kind of map I’m going to discuss is the normal world map. This is perfect for people who love to have a more geographical map on their wall that clearly shows where countries are located. These maps have both the names of the countries on them as well as their capitals. How handy!
Big world maps
If you’re looking for a remarkable form of wall decoration, a big world map is perfect. A big world map can fill up your entire wall, imagine how cool that could look! Covering your entire wall with a world map might seem a little extreme, but it can look very pretty. Especially if you choose a map that is made with soft colours like black and white. I’m personally a really big fan of the way that looks!
Overall I’m a big fan of this interior trend. There is so much choice when it comes to buying a world map, which makes this trend accessible for all of us and fitting for every home decor. Aside from world maps there are also similar types of wall decoration that you see a lot in the magazines these days. Things like city maps for example, that give a very detailed view of your favourite cities. The black and white version of the different neighbourhoods in Amsterdam for example is just breathtaking! Super pretty and extremely trendy.
With that being said I think I’ve now told you guys everything there is to know about world maps. I hope you found this post interesting and be sure to let me know what kind of world map you would choose!
