While art may not be essential to fulfill our basic needs, it does make our life more colorful. When we look at a perfect painting or poster we have chosen to hang on the living room wall. It is a great feeling. The sculpture or figurines on the kitchen windowsill we carefully select, put a smile on our face every time. These varieties of art forms that we are surrounded by all come together to create the atmosphere that we want to live in, which is personable to us. From the guests perspective, art is one of the best ways to express who you are, and reveal your fine taste, so be sure to showcase your favorite pieces.
However, choosing an artwork for home is not easy, and to display them in the right way is critical. Here are a few tips that can help for your next purchase or installation of the next piece of artwork:
1 – Select the most important and visible walls in your home.
2 – Mirror the size of the wall: If you have a long horizontal wall hang a long horizontal piece (or collection of pieces) on that wall.
3 – Fill the wall. Don’t be afraid to use the entire wall
4 – Color is important: Think about the feel of a color before placing it in your room.
5 – Don’t let the architectural style of your home dictate the art that you have on your walls.
6 – Vary the texture of the pieces in your room.
7 – A frame can serve as a bridge between the artwork and the room.
When selecting a frame, it is important that it complement the furniture and architectural features of a room.
8 – Play with the lighting in the room: After placing the artwork, move your existing lighting around or think about adding new spots to illuminate the piece.
9 – Watch out for glare: When hanging art behind glass, stay away from walls directly across from windows as the light will create glare
