How to Choose the Perfect Wall Art for your Interiors?
In interior designing wall art is only treated as an afterthought. Once the final coat of paint has dried on
the walls only then do people think about what art should go up on the wall. However, one can take
advantage of a carefully chosen wall art to enhance the beauty of the room. Wall art is that finishing
element that can help pull a space together and make it feel complete. Here are a few points one can
keep in mind with regards to wall art while designing your space.
One of the most basic principles of interior design is that every room needs a focal point, or a single
design element that will instantly draw the eye into the space and give the viewer a sense of what to
expect. It goes without saying that a great piece of wall art could easily fulfill this position.
Imagine your favorite artwork hanging on the main wall of your living room or standing proudly above
the bed in your bedroom. When choosing a piece of wall art to be a focal point for your space, the most
important consideration is size. An artwork that is too small will get dwarfed by the surrounding
furniture and a piece that is too big will look as though it is spilling over. Make sure to take
measurements of the wall space available, so you know how much room you have at your disposal.
Remember that not all wall art is created equal. While some pieces may be two-dimensional paintings or
something similar, you should try to find art in a variety of different mediums to help bring a varying
sense of texture into the space.
In addition to paintings and prints, you should consider pieces like sculptures or shadow boxes that can
add some depth to the room. If your style is more chic and modern, you could also consider doing a
small mixed media installation that includes screens and digital art.
Wall art is that finishing element that can help pull a space together and make it feel complete. It is that
little extra touch that can take your space from simply looking functional to appearing as if it should
grace the pages of an interior design magazine.
The key is to choose a piece of art or another wall hanging that fits in with the decorating style that
you’ve already chosen for the room. After that, it’s all about choosing decor that you love and will be
happy seeing hang on your wall for many years to come.
