To define the personality of the homeowner and their space artwork helps to a considerable extent. To give a home a character and also to tie certain pieces together they play a major role. The best thing about buying art is that it’s an investment as its value grows over time.
To select the right piece for a specific space follow a few guidelines.
For the Kitchen
The kitchen is one of the most commonly forgotten rooms when it comes to displaying artwork. In many cases, the most used room of the house is the kitchen. Without a doubt, art needs to be incorporated here. The perfect spaces for art are spaces above cabinets and countertops. It is better to choose smaller pieces that complement, not overwhelm, space. Choose something that makes you smile to make your mornings easier.
For the bedroom
A bedroom is a place for relaxation and the artwork should echo that. If you love abstract paintings opt for soothing tones. Place the artwork directly over the bed or on the wall opposite the bed. Hang large scale pieces at eye level. The focus should be the painting so ensure that the frames are minimal.
For the office
Art is a great way to personalize your space and keep you inspired. Creating a rotating gallery is the best way to do this. Preferably over your workspace or close to it install a long floating ledge shelf. And then pick out an assortment of artwork that inspires you. Choose works by artists who inspire you or positive images that appeal to you. Incorporate different sizes as well. Whenever you get bored you can rotate or update the pieces.
For the bathroom
Like the kitchen bathroom often gets neglected. Stick to more fun and bright pieces and always select in pairs, if the space permits. The artwork should go with the vibe of the place. A calming or serene piece will go well in the master bath. The bathtub, toilet or over the towel/robe hooks are the best places for these pieces.
For the living room
The living room is one place we all love to decorate with art. However, since this is the room most of your guests will see we feel a lot of pressure while decorating. To initiate a conversation choosing the right piece is fundamental. You can opt for a large gallery wall or one large-scale piece for the living room.
