“A picture is worth a thousand words”

But finding the perfect picture that manifests the personality of the owner can be an overwhelming task. When choosing wall art for a room, whether it is the bedroom, hallway, or home office, it is important to consider the color contrast, character, and the spirit of the space.

To guide you in choosing THE PERFECT wall artwork for your blank walls, we have collected some professional tips and tricks below. Your home can have everything from classic vintage artworks to modern personalized touch in no time.

  • Hallway: Hallways and entrance spaces are often ignored when it comes to home decor. As a place for arrival and departure, it sets the tone of the entire house. So it needs to make a statement and be welcoming to the guests. 

But, hallway walls are a bit tricky to decorate. Since this space, especially in city houses tend to be narrow and long, the walls are the only feature for decoration.

DON’T 

  • The large pieces do not catch the attention due to restrictions in overall viewing space.

DO

  • Hence, we recommend small art pieces with lots of details. Small eclectic art grouping will create better visual interest than one large piece. With proper lighting accessories, the hallway will instantly brighten up.

KEY POINTS :

  • Use several small wall arts.
  • Proper lighting is required.

  • Create a gallery wall considering varying subjects such as landscape, architecture, still life, abstract art, etc. Also, don’t forget to vary the medium - water, canvas, poster, digital, collage, photography - in different types of frames. Mixing is the key here. Every piece should have equal importance.
  • The area above the seating space can excellently accommodate a large single frame. Go bold with a pop of color and the theme of the painting. High-quality handmade art pieces elevate the wall art decor to a new level.

  • Bathroom: Since the pandemic has broken out, from home office to kid’s homeschooling, there is hardly a me-space. But, the apparent utilitarian space in the home, the bathroom can come to the rescue. For that, bathrooms need to be aesthetically pleasing and upgraded with some great decor pieces.
  • The guest bathroom should be more fun and welcoming, while the personal bathroom needs to be adorned with an intimate and personalized touch. Something that evokes a calm and relaxing vibe.
