Artwork is usually the final touch that gives your home its own unique charm and character. The artwork you choose reflects your own personality and tastes, so you should look to maximise the impact it has on your home. APT Renovation has looked at how you can get the best out of your selected artwork:
Maximise Your Hall Space
Your hallway is generally the area with the largest wall space, but this part of the house is often ignored in terms of decoration. Instead, why not make your hallway stand out, and feature a large selection of art, leading all the way up to the top of the wall so you have something nice to look at when climbing the staircase.
Illuminate Your Art
Sometimes the lighting in a room will not do justice to the artwork that you have up. A great way to combat this is to install some lighting above your art to illuminate it during the evening, so it is just as noticeable as it is during the day. Adjustable lighting is preferable as you can manipulate the lighting to your liking.
If your artwork is very colourful and striking, you might want it to be the centrepiece of your room. Consider propping it up to a high and central point in the room, and arrange your furniture around it so that it is always in view. Try to ensure that the rest of the room doesn’t clash with the vibrancy of your artwork, instead opting for more neutral colours and tones.
Jazz Up Your Bathroom
Many bathrooms look generic and lack in style, so adding artwork into the mix is a really effective way to enhance the image. Consider adding some funky pop art to a white bathroom to inject some life into it, or add some Art Deco features to create a more refined finish.
