Selecting the right piece of art for your home can be an overwhelming process. And when you’re investing in art, it’s important to find pieces you truly love and will continue to love for a long time to come. To simplify the process, we’ve rounded up three simple considerations for choosing the perfect piece of art for your home.
First, consider the space. If you’re looking for art for your master bedroom, calming colors work well. If you’re adding to your art collection in the living room, it might make sense to go more bold and abstract. And if you’re looking for artwork for your children’s bedroom or playroom, playful and colorful pieces make the perfect addition. The space where the art will live is arguably the most important factor to consider when choosing a new piece of art.
One of the easiest mistakes to make when buying art is finding a piece that is scaled appropriately for your space. If you have a large wall, you likely need a large piece of art. Even when grouping pieces, if you combine too many small pieces of artwork, the space can start to look cluttered and crowded. If the space is small, an oversized piece of art can make the space look even smaller. Before you start shopping, be sure to pull out a tape measure and measure the space. You might be surprised by the size of art you really need!
When you’re picking out a piece of art for your home, make sure to consider surrounding art and furniture, so the new art fits in seamlessly without fighting other pieces. It should be different enough to stand out, but coordinate well enough to blend with other pieces.
