With so many prints and paintings to choose from, it can be hard to figure out where to begin when decorating with art in your home. Artwork is often expensive, so you don’t want to waste money on something that won’t end up on your walls forever. Plus, you want art that helps make your home feel more like you, even if you’re renting or living in someone else’s home right now!
Thankfully, there are three simple steps you can take to help ensure you find exactly the right pieces of art for your space without breaking the bank in the process.
1) Start by getting rid of everything you don’t love
Before you can start filling your home with pieces you love, you need to get rid of the stuff you don’t. Go through each room and get rid of anything that doesn’t make you happy or that you no longer have a use for. This will help clear the way for art that you love and that will make your space feel more like your own.
Secondly, choose paintings or prints rather than posters: Posters are a great option if you want something bold but they aren’t usually meant to be framed and hung on the wall. Paintings and prints are much better suited for this purpose because they are made with an eye towards framing them nicely.
Thirdly, hang your art at eye level: You want people walking into your house to be able to see all of your lovely artwork right away! To do this, hang it at eye level so it will be visible from far away as well as close up.
2) Use gallery walls to make a bold statement
A gallery wall is a great way to make a bold statement in your home. You can use art to add color, interest, and personality to your space. Plus, gallery walls are a great way to display a collection of art or photos.
3) Work with what you have
You don't need to go out and buy new art every time you want to change up your space. Take a look at what you already have and see if there's anything you can work with. Try hanging artwork in different ways or in different rooms. You might be surprised at how just a few small changes can make a big difference.
