Wall Decorations And You: How To Find The Right Decor For Your Room
As I walk through my home, I look around and notice all decorations that fit on my wall. Most of them happen to be paintings. Not really anything fancy just pictures I happen to like and purchased. Artwork is the most popular thing to have on a wall but there are other things you can have on your wall besides just art. The second most popular wall decor are picture frames because everyone loves to have pictures of their family on their walls. There are various other items one can use as wall decor, in fact, almost anything will do.
If you decide to go with the art on the wall, there are some things you may want to take into account. For starters, you need to go through all the rooms of your home and decide which rooms would be best suited for art work. The room that features art the most is the living room. When putting a piece of artwork in the living room you want to make sure to put the art at an eye level. Most people will be sitting in this room so you want to make sure the piece is sufficiently placed where everyone can see it from where they are sitting and not have to move the necks up to view it. When hanging that piece you also want to make sure that is to scale. You do not want a piece that is too big or too small you want a piece that fits right in with the scale of the room. So go through all your art work to find the perfect match.
If you choose to go with a picture, most of the same rules apply as with the paintings. You first want to make sure that everything is to scale, and it is on an eye degree. You should also make sure that the frame is lined up nice and evenly, there are many times when I have been to someone’s home and have noticed pictures that are crooked and how crazy it drives me so always make certain it is right.
If you are the artistic type, you could make your own wall decor. It is very easy to put wall decorations up it is really just a matter of taste and a person’s prerogative.
There are many different types of wall decorations from paintings, to pictures to do it yourself crafts. Each one will look different and bring a different style to your room. Consider all your options before making your final choice as you may find out when going through the options that a second choice is better. Above all else, remember that everyone has a different taste so not everyone will have the same type of wall decorations.
