Five tips to help any homeowner beautify their space with art:
1) Decide where you want to put it and measure the area
In order to pick artwork for your space, you first have to decide where you’re going to put it. The artwork you choose will be an extension of the room in which it is displayed. You should also take measurements to ensure that the piece you choose will fit.
2) No matter what medium you’re looking for, you should figure out if you want colour or black and white.
This will depend on the colours already present in the space, as well as the theme or mood you’re trying to achieve. Darker shades create a more confined atmosphere, while lighter colours add brightness and open up a space. Cool tones are generally more calming, in contrast to warm tones that add energy and vibrancy. The choice of colour in the art you choose for your space will add to the overall character of the room.
3) Establish a price point.
Let’s be honest, art can be expensive. It’s important to establish a price point before you start looking for artwork - something flexible, and within your budget. If you happen to fall in love with a piece that is out of your price range, many galleries have payment plans in which you can set up scheduled payments.
4) Go Shopping!
It’s ideal to see a piece in person to really imagine it in your space, however, with the pandemic many people are choosing to purchase artworks online. This can be helpful to see potential candidates side-by-side, giving you the opportunity to compare and contrast. However, you want to make sure that the piece is the right size and shape for your space before clicking the check out button. Most galleries have contact forms on their website where you can request more information about a piece, and many offer viewings by appointment.
5) Display it!
Now that you’ve chosen your artwork you need to display it. You should already have the area chosen to display the piece, so now all you have to do is install the appropriate hardware or stand!
