How To Choose Artwork For Your House Without Going Broke!Posted December 7, 2017 by Vicki Radford
How to choose artwork for your house without spending big?
Artwork is something which can make your home feel incredibly personal and adds that unique touch which transforms it from a house to a home. It can also be quite an intimidating process as you try to choose from thousands of different types and colours of artwork for the house. It can feel like looking for a needle in a haystack.
The key to choosing the right piece of art to suit your home is to only choose one that you genuinely love.
There’s absolutely no point in compromising on a piece of art which to think is just okay, you need to have something in your home which you look at every day and love every time you see it as you walk through the house.
Sometimes the piece you think fits into the type of design in your home is not the piece you should choose to have. It can be just as amazing sometimes to think outside the box and choose something which is totally different to the rest of your home. An old style cottage with a modern piece of art can add an edge to the traditional design, and a sleek modern design with some pop art or a comic strip poster can really add that element of character to a plain space.
Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries when it comes to your art because at the end of the day there are no rules when it comes to art in your home.
If you have a room which is neutral in colour, the best thing you can do is find a piece with a photograph of a stunning sunset or a colourful abstract piece to contrast the rest of the space and bring that spark of life into the room. You need to be able to notice the piece whenever you enter a room: you don’t want your artwork to become lost in the house.
If you are going to make the decision to purchase a piece of art for your home, you need to make sure that you spend the money and invest in a good quality frame. There is no point having a stunning piece of art in a frame which does not match or looks cheap. However when it comes to the prices of the artwork you purchase, you can mix and match a few different price points because as long as the art is visually pleasing it doesn’t matter too much about the value.
Don’t worry too much about how other people think about your choices
When you think about how to choose artwork for your house, don’t worry what others think because at the end of the day it is your home and you need to choose a piece which fits your style and personality. So even if it is a risky piece, you can just go with your own opinion, hang it up on the wall with Ritetack or hammer some nails into the walls and stand back to admire the art you’ve chosen for your home.
