The days of boring, generic art on your walls are over. Your home should reflect your personality and style, and there’s no better way to do that than with art. You want unique art on your wall that inspires, creates joy, and feels like a representation of you.
But finding those unique pieces to fill your home can be difficult. It can be challenging when you don’t know where to look. That doesn’t mean you should give up finding memorable artwork for your home.
Here is a guide to help you decorate your home and find the standout pieces.
What’s the Art Location?
A large empty wall above the sofa? Behind the bed in the bedroom? A statement in the dining room?
Before you go out and buy a ton of art, figure out where you’re looking to display it. The location can help direct the kind of art, the size of the piece, and how many pieces to buy.
You may also consider a gallery wall to display a cluster of different art pieces if you have space.
Types of Art
Considering the type of art you want for your home will help narrow down your search. There are tons of art mediums and tons of artists creating work within those mediums. Explore a few types of art and see which one you like best.
Popular art types include painting, photography, illustration, prints, posters, and textiles. You may also want to look for sculptures or pottery for accent pieces that don’t go on walls.
Choose a Style
The style of your art tends to go hand-in-hand with your interior style. Consider the style of your furniture and even your home’s interior architecture. Of course, because art is so personal, you want to consider your taste and style.
Current popular home styles include mid-century modern, farmhouse, boho, and coastal. Choosing art that matches your home’s decor and architecture will help make the overall design seamless.
Make Art Personal
Of course, buying art isn’t your only option; you can make it. This gives you a chance to stretch your creative muscles and create something one-of-a-kind.
Call your friends and family over for a paint and sip at home party. Or buy a kit from the craft store. Try different mediums, from painting to photography to sculpture.
Unique Art for Any Home
The right art should feel like magic every time you look at it. Unique art should be a conversation starter when you have guests come over. But most importantly, art should make you happy.
Finding the pieces that can achieve all that may seem like a feat if you don’t know where to look. But this guide can help you find the standout pieces to help decorate every room in your home.
