How to Choose Wall Art for Your Space

Updated: Jun 11

4 Tips for Finding Your Masterpiece.

When decorating a room the first thing you need to think about is what the focal point will be. In a kitchen it may be the island or the backsplash, for a bedroom it may be the headboard or duvet, for the living room in may be the cushy couch or the rug and for the dining room it may be the family portrait or the chandelier. For any of these rooms it may also be the wall art.

Whatever the focal point is you want to make sure you build the rest of your space around it to ensure everything blends well together. Whether wall art is going to be the focal point or not there are several considerations in the decision making process of which piece is best for you. Here are a few:

Only Choose Colors That Blend

Make sure all the colors of your piece blend with the overall color scheme of the room. The last thing you want to do is fall in love with a work of art that doesn't blend with the color of your walls, furniture or accessories. As nice as the piece may be if the colors, or even a single color doesn't blend it will eat away at you until you make changes to make it work. This will end up costing you more aggravation and money.

Choose a Style That Fits Your Personality and Décor Aesthetic

One of the most overlooked aspects of choosing your ideal wall art is making sure the style vibes with your overall décor aesthetic. If your home falls under the aesthetic of modern chic, placing a fantasy piece in the space will not “work”, no matter how well the colors mesh. Same goes for a traditional space with a digital fractal piece. How the work of art’s design style fits in the space is just as important as the color scheme.
