Choosing Art for Your Home

by Arthur Martens Team 06/23/2019

Having to stare at a wall with old posters or the same old painting isn't interesting at all. An great way to add character, a splash of color and sophistication to your home is to hang different and new pieces of art on your walls.

Here are some ways to pick out art for your home:

Be mindful of the colors

If the artwork is for your bedroom, you should go for cool colors that will absorb light and invoke a relaxing mode. However, for areas that need a more inviting atmosphere like the living room, warm colors like orange and red will be lovely.

Simplicity or sophistication?

Artwork for your room should be as simple as possible with relatable details. But, it is also acceptable to hang sophisticated works in your home. For art lovers that have a preference for a particular style or genre, do not ignore your home's color scheme completely to satisfy your art craving.

What is the room design scheme?

Before bringing in your excellent piece(s), take out some time to consider the size, atmosphere, and lighting of the room. Art in dark colors might not be best suited for a dark room. And you don't want a large frame taking up all the space that you can use for other purposes.

Consider your likes

This is the ultimate deciding factor. Some people love murals, others prefer sculptures. Apart from the type of art, the content matters as well. Not everyone would like to have a gory scene in their bedroom, but there are those who wouldn't mind. So, before hitting the antique store or art gallery, carefully consider your values and likes, and determine if the art you choose will appeal to your personality first then add to the beauty of your home.

Decide the type of art you prefer

Like I mentioned above, some people love murals while others prefer sculptures. It's common to find landscape portraits and framed photographs in homes, but determining your taste will help in choosing the best type of art for you. There's a wealth of options to choose from here - from pictures and paintings, to mini sculptures, or even drapes with artistic designs. You can also go modern by using 3D wallpapers that depict different scenes that you choose yourself.

Consider the color pattern of the room

Take note of the colors of the most visible things in the room; carpets, bedspreads, couch, etc. Doing this will help you choose an artwork with shade(s) that contrast with those present in the room already. It will also help to ensure the colors are not screaming out in disagreement.

Make sure you talk to your real estate agent about the art in your home before having potential buyers over.
