Your bedroom is finally coming together – you have the basics like the bed, dressers and bedside table and you’ve added some extra details like photos, plants, candles and pillows.
But one thing is missing from your bedroom. What is it?
Artwork. Any bedroom, regardless of the style of decoration, needs a good piece of art (or two or three).
How do you know which piece of art to choose for your bedroom?
In this manual, you will learn the four most important tips for choosing bedroom graphics.
1. Make it personal
If there is a room in your home that should have very personal facilityIt is your bedroom.
After all, your bedroom is the place where you can relax and get away from the rest of the world.
So don’t be afraid to choose works of art that are very personal to you. For example, you can select works of art that represent one of your favorite cities or places in the world.
Your bedroom is also a great place to hang portraits, be it a portrait of yourself or a portrait of your pet. You can use a website like Instapainting to turn one of your favorite photos into a personalized painting.
2. Make sure you take some measurements
When choosing artwork for your bedroom, choosing the right dimensions is very important.
If you choose a work of art that is too small, it can easily disappear into the rest of the bedroom. Choose too large a piece of art that will overwhelm the rest of the decor.
In general, when you hang a piece of art over a piece of furniture such as a bed or dresser, you want it to be a little smaller or a little larger than the piece of furniture. Whenever purchasing works of art, always take a tape measure with you to make sure you choose the correct sizes.
Unless you want a large piece of art, consider creating an art wall using several or more smaller pieces of art. Or you can arrange several similar works of art in a row.
For artwork to be placed on a bookcase or on a bedside table or dresser, you can choose smaller pieces.
3. Coordinate colors
It is also very important to make sure that the color of your artwork matches the colors of your bedroom.
That doesn’t mean you have to stick to all the blue images when you have a blue bedspread. However, you definitely want to concentrate choose analog colors to make sure your artwork compliments your bedroom.
For example, if your bedroom is filled with shades of green, consider a piece of art in the color purple.
4. Take the time to discover the art you like
Just because you are not an “artsy” person doesn’t mean you can’t choose beautiful works of art.
If you are new to choosing art, take some time to figure out which art style you like. Check out some of your local museums or browse art websites online.
Once you know the art style you like, finding the perfect piece can be a lot easier.
