Now that you know why you should invest in canvas art paintings here’s how you can choose the right artwork for your living room:
- Choose a piece that reflects your personality
The art you choose reflects your personality, so select a piece that defines you or something that you believe in or something that inspires you.
- Choose the right size
An artwork that is not the right size can disturb the look and aesthetics of a room. Measure the dimension of your wall and ensure the size of the piece does not exceed 2/3rd of the size of the furniture.
- The right position to be placed
The perfect position to place artwork is where it adds value to the room. The place where the art is placed needs to have proper light and visual accessibility. Identify the right orientation to display your art piece.
- Frame it well
A frame can also make or break the look so choose carefully. Choose an ornate gold frame to highlight a simple piece of art and if you have wooden or leather furniture you can go for complementary wooden frames. To provide a definition to the artwork use a minimalist frame or you can go for metallic frames that allows you to pick a color from the artwork and highlight that in the frame.
- Position it right
The most common and safest place to place your artwork is in the center, but you can experiment and even go off-center but make sure there’s something on the other side to balance the look. And, if you are planning to display a couple of art pieces, go for an odd number and start with the center.
