5 Tips to Help Compose the Perfect Wall Art Arrangement
Redecorating can be… difficult to say the least. There wouldn’t be a whole profession out there for interior designers if just anyone could do it perfectly every time! Sure, everyone has their own tastes and an “eye for things” as most people would put it. We know what we like vs. what we don’t, but sometimes it can be hard to get just the right amount of things we like to go together harmoniously in one room.
Now, we’re not claiming this blog will make you a professional home decorator overnight, but we can help point you in the right direction! So roll up your sleeves and get your measuring tapes out as we delve into some tips and tricks to help you find the perfect arrangement for your new wall art in your home!
Think about the color or “theme” of your room
What a lot of people tend to overlook is that there are already items that exist in every room. Unless you’re moving into a brand new unfurnished flat/ home/ apartment etc., you probably already have some furniture kicking around. Even the color of the walls plays a part in this phase!
When picking out some wall art for your home, first think about which room you plan to put it in, then take a look at what colors already exist there. Maybe you’ve got a monochrome theme going on there, or perhaps a complimentary color scheme! If that’s the case, you can look for a wall art that features more of the same or complementing colors so it’ll mesh well with the rest of the space!
The last thing you want is this bright overly loud piece that just seems out of place in a room that was once tied together nicely.
Consider the surroundings and lighting available
Light sources are a very important and also often overlooked factor when decorating. Think of it this way, if you’re an artist or movie lover, you may have noticed that in certain scenes the characters would be lit from certain angles. If you haven’t noticed this, I highly encourage you to try it out next time!
Having a person’s face lit from different angles plays a part in the atmosphere. For instance, a person lit from below would look more menacing or evil, a person lit from above could look more soft or innocent! These same rules can apply to the wall art you hand around your room too! For the most ideal setup, you’ll want to place the wall somewhere where the light can highlight it and bring forth the mood you want it to set!
Don’t be afraid to get math involved
As much as people hate to crunch the numbers, sometimes math can be very helpful in making things look pleasing! In picture compositions, you may have heard terms such as the “golden ratio” or “rule of thirds”. These may have a root in mathematical concepts, but when applied to art they have almost always resulted in visually pleasing compositions! You can try applying them yourself with your new wall art too!
The fact that the pieces we sell can be bought in multiple sections even gives you more room to play around with these concepts to create perfect spacing and distance to further accent the room!
Avoid cluttering up the wall space!
While our first instinct may be to just cover up all the empty space, sometimes it’s good to give your wall a bit of breathing room. Spacing is a concept that allows your eyes to have a rest and be able to appreciate everything fully, without other distractions pulling at your attention like those blaring ads we all tend to ignore on the sidebars of websites. So what we’re trying to get at here, is that it’s easy to go overboard on decorating so take a step back every now and then and see if maybe there’s a bit too much going on already.
Don’t rush the process
Redecorating should be something fun and exciting for you! It’s your way of expressing yourself and making your home truly yours with what you choose to put up! So don’t skimp out or cut corners when creating your wall art display. Take your time, try out various locations until you’ve found the perfect spot for you!
