OUTDOOR ART PANELS . THE IDEAL SOLUTION FOR PRIVACY

Are you missing something in your outdoor space? Do you need privacy from your neighbor, a touch of color or a focal point on a blank wall? Consider a metal art panel, which can be customized and fabricated in a multitude of materials, colors and designs to suit you and your landscape.

A large metal art panel can act as an outdoor wall to define a space for dining or lounging. Mounted inside a sturdy wood frame like the one below, the panel is neither transparent nor opaque but just the right amount of enclosure, surrounded by plant material. Panels can also be combined to create privacy around a hot tub while still preserving a view to the sky and allowing plenty of air flow around the perimeter.

Steel art panels can serve as custom-designed artwork suited to your architecture. A Moorish pattern that has been powder coated in blue fits perfectly above a raised plant bed and blends with other Moorish furniture in this residence. Panels can also be cut to provide a beautiful but movable screen to hide unsightly pipes or utilities, especially when they are in prominent locations such as an outdoor dining area. The tree panel below is hinged for occasional access to utilities that reside behind it.

Custom Art Panel

Art panels don’t need to be solid. They may be as simple as a welded wire mesh within a steel frame which creates a sturdy yet transparent barrier. The bright red powder coating yields a vivid contrast to the flowering vine that climbs the wire panel. A pair of metal panels with fluid, horizontal lines and accent pieces serve as the perfect foil to the vines and landscape on this otherwise blank, white wall.

DECOR IDEAS FOR YOUR OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE

Outdoor artwork and patio accessories can be the difference between an outdoor living space that is good versus one that is downright stunning. Outdoor decor and art create a distinctive and finished look that is reflective of your personality and lifestyle.

Placement is key with outdoor sculpture so consider the space. Will the piece be seen from inside or is it selected primarily for its look while outside? Will it be viewed from up close or from far away? Some pieces are kinetic, meaning they move with the slightest breeze, and some are reflective of light and water. Outdoor lighting will enhance your outdoor art piece at night. 

A blank fence or house / garage wall is the perfect canvas on which to place a piece of outdoor wall art. A single object - or a minimal collection of similar objects – will create a focal point, which is especially key when opposite a door or window. The Climbing Man sculpture and Hanging Orb planters can work singly, or together, depending on the size and configuration of the space.

 An outdoor wall art panel such as the one below - fabricated of steel in a custom-designed floral pattern - is ideal if you need to create a privacy screen or a piece of artwork to obscure an undesirable view.

Also consider adding some outdoor accessories, any type of garden décor that would add beauty and personality. A light touch is necessary so choose and display them carefully. Garden spheres are terrific, on a patio or in the landscape, surrounded by plants. Concrete, glazed in multiple colors or hollow, with a string of lights inside, spheres can add a modern feel to any outdoor areas.

 Lanterns are another great way to bring color and ambiance to the patio. Either on a table top or on the floor, they look good during broad daylight, and at night, their silhouette brings warmth and sparkle.
