How to Choose the Right Wall Art for Your Home or Office

Many people aspire to make their homes and offices to be comfortable and peaceful places to be in. Creating the right space to achieve the ambiance and atmosphere you desire, can easily be influenced by the framed wall art that you choose to hang on your walls. 

Beautifully framed decorator wall art is the finishing touch to add to your walls and pull your room's space together. The art prints you select will set the tone, style and vibe of the room, so it's important to select the right pieces. Your room can have a completely different feeling, from calming and soothing, to dramatic and vibrant, all by the selection of the style, size and colours of your framed art.

Below, we have put together three simple things you may want to consider when choosing framed art prints or posters to adorn your walls. 

1. What's Your Theme?

The most important thing is that the art print reflects your personality and lifestyle. Choose wall art prints that reflect and embody who you are, while the same time also matches the style and feel of your room. For example, you might prefer a relaxing coastal beach theme for your room, which takes you away to a quick holiday, every time you see your wall!

2. Choose Wall Art Prints by Colour Tone

The simplest way to choose by colour is by looking at your space and identifying the colour palette. Then pick a wall art prints that match these colours. By doing this, you will create a cohesive / monochromatic look.

Alternatively, if you are willing to add pops of colour, choose a decorator art print that is complementary or opposite to the existing colour palette.

Finally, for a more secure look, you could pick black & white prints or posters.

3. Optimal Use of Size & Space for Your Framed Art

The optimal size for your art is around 50% of the available space. Anything above 75% can become looking too crowded. Anything below 50% will look sparse. If 50% of the available space looks too big for a single framed piece you, you can always create an attractive grouping such as using a pair of framed prints, or even create a gallery wall display, like the example below:
