Pro Tips for Choosing Artwork for Your Home

“How do I choose the right artwork for my space?” That is one of the most frequently asked questions interior designers get asked. There are a few guidelines to make sure you have the right art pieces for your specific space.

Another frequently asked question is “why should I have art in my space?”Art speaks volumes about you. Whether it's your personality or what you value in life, art can be the perfect translator. This lets you forge deeper connections with those who come into your space. The best thing about art is that it's an investment you can take with you as you move, and can even grow in value over time. It also doesn't require you to spend a lot of money; you can spend as little or as much as you like.

For the Kitchen

Should you have art in the kitchen? Yes, the kitchen shouldn't be overlooked as a space to display wall art. Different kitchens will suit different styles of art. The kitchen, often referred to as the “heart of the home,” is the perfect space for art. Art can be displayed on countertops or spaces above cabinets.  To keep the art in the details, use smaller pieces to complement, not overwhelm, the space. Think about using funny or more social prints that can make you smile every morning!

For the Bedroom

The bedroom is a place for relaxation and the artwork should reflect that. Landscapes, ocean views, sweeping abstracts, desaturated photos tend to work best in a bedroom because of their overall calming feel.

The best walls for art in the bedroom are directly over the bed or on the wall opposite the bed. Large scale pieces are best and should be hung at eye level. Keep the frames minimal--a gallery frame or canvases work great as well. One should want to focus on the art piece itself, not the frame.


For the Office

Whether you work from home or in an office, art is a great way to personalize your space and keep you focused and inspired. Create a rotating gallery by installing a floating ledge shelf over your workspace or close to it. With the ledge shelf, it is the only thing you will have to hang. Use your artwork as a mood board of sorts. Use motivational art prints or works by artists who inspire you as a good place to start. Look into buying art prints in different sizes. In addition, you can have them all placed in similar frames for a minimalist look or all different frames to add some personality to the space. These pieces can be rotated or updated whenever you get bored, no nails required.

For the Living Room

The living room is more than likely the most fun room to decorate with art. At times, it could be intimidating due to the pressure of impressing since your guest will likely spend the most time in. Choosing the right piece is important in provoking conversation and setting the feel or vibe of the space. Two good options would be to use a large scale piece or a large gallery wall.

You can opt for one large-scale piece or a large gallery wall. Sometimes you need to think outside the frame.

For the Bathroom

Another room that often gets neglected is the bathroom. Artwork is the perfect way to create a vibe for the space. For a powder room on the main level, use more fun and bright pieces. For a master bathroom, use more serene and calming pieces such as artwork that features ocean views. A great way to display artwork in a bathroom is by choosing a set of two pieces and stacking them one above the other or placing them side by side. Good places for artwork in a bathroom would be over the toilet, bathtub, or over the towel, robe hooks.
