Art & Decoration
A world wall map can add a real touch of elegance and charm to a room. An antique style map of the world or a world map in a wooden frame, adds an air of distinction.Alternatively for a more modern look, a canvas map of the world makes a great alternative to a framed picture of photo. The bright colors and canvas textile make this world map bring a room to life. Canvas prints are gaining in popularity for use in home decor, and a canvas world map gives a trendy, modern look.
A fantastic Reference Guide
Word wall maps make a great reference tool. When a country is in the news, do we always know exactly where it is or which countries it borders? A world map placed on the wall means that everything a country or city is in the news, or referenced, you can check exactly where it is.Some high quality maps of the world also have a panel of country flags along the base of the map. Again, this is a great reference tool and aids learning.
A Great Learning Resource
Maps help children learn about the world that they live in. The world is a big place so seeing the country they live in, and how small it is on the map compared to other countries can help them grasp how large the world really is. Geographical knowledge can be learnt from a young age, and there is always something new to learn no matter how old you are. A World map will provide not only the countries, but the capital cities and often, the approximate population size.
Luckily there are countless ways to decorate with maps that can add sophistication to your space while holding onto the memories of that incredible getaway!
