Artwork can be an important part of decorating your home. It’s used to add an accent or set a mood. The right artwork can add the perfect finishing touch to a space. Canvas wall art has become a popular choice for many people’s walls.
Canvas wall art is great as they give the appearance of an authentic piece. Choosing the right piece can be a little daunting, but it only takes a couple of simple steps to find the perfect piece of art for your home.
1. Match the Color Scheme
The first step is to really familiarize yourself with your color scheme. The usual rule of thumb is to pick a piece of art that will match the room it’s going in without detracting from other design elements.
2. Match the Artwork
Just like with all other pieces of art, there are a range of styles to choose from. There are flowers, landscapes, abstracts and so many other prints that can be found in canvas pieces, so you need to ensure that the theme in the piece doesn’t clash with the theme in your room. For example, a lighthouse landscape won’t work in a room that’s been decorated with an Eastern feel; the same way an oriental floral canvas isn’t going to work in a room that’s been decorated with a nautical theme.
3. Match the Wall
Where you will hang the artwork is also an important element to choosing your canvas piece. Start by taking a tape measure and measuring the dimensions of the space where the artwork will be going. Once you’ve got those dimensions, you’ll have a much better idea of what you’d like in an artwork.
The canvas should match the size of the wall. One of the worst things that could happen is purchasing a piece that is too small or too big.
4. Choose the Style
Styles are obviously going to differ depending on the room, and of course, your preferences. But before you purchase a new canvas wall art, you should have an idea of the style you want. A large canvas can make for a great statement piece in an area with a big open wall. However, it doesn’t have to be your only choice. Panels are a fantastic way to fill a room and can break up the pattern enough to draw the eye to the piece.
Most landscapes won’t work well in panels, but if you do decide on a landscaped piece, be sure to use canvases that go side by side and not top to bottom. Also, larger pieces of canvas panels typically use the rule of three, particularly if you are decorating a large wall space, but there’s no harm in using more than three if it works. Look at the art carefully and decide on the best way to show it off.
