How To Select Wall Hanging Art for Bedroom Decorating

Are you bored with your bare bedroom wall? Spice things up by adding some much needed pizazz to your dreary bedroom wall by hanging some interesting art pieces.

Here are some tips to help you decide what, where and how to hang wall art for your room.

  1. A bedroom is a place for rest and relaxation, therefore try to choose artworks that are relaxing and pleasing to your eyes. The artwork should generate a feeling of tranquil and ease. Stay away from harsh colors. Softer tones and colors lend a relaxing effect. Choose art works that fit your lifestyle and personality, those that gives the viewer an idea of what you like and your distinct style.
  2. Keep in mind that the artwork should be connected with the rest of your furniture. Try to look for a common theme and color with your furniture and apply it with your wall art. Make sure that it complements each other, not clash with your furniture. Tips you can use is choosing one or two of the boldest colors in your bedroom, then try to find art pieces that have those chosen colors in it.
  3. It is also important to identify the amount of space available where you want to hang or place your chosen art work. If you have trouble deciding whether to hang a big art work or a small one, remember the rule of thumb: the artwork should be proportional to the size of your furnishings or the size of the wall space if there is no furniture. In other words, a small desk or table needs a small art piece/s. While a large piece of furnishing such as your bed requires a much larger piece of artwork. But, bear in mind that when hanging a piece of wall art over furniture, it shouldn't be longer than the width of that piece of furniture. Art pieces that are too large will overwhelm, while art pieces that are too small will definitely look out of proportion.
  4. You can also choose several wall arts that are in keeping with your chosen theme or color. Experts would say that it is best to hang art pieces in odd numbers. Odd numbers are visually appealing to the eyes than even ones. When you hang these pieces together, make sure that they are close together so they would work as a single unit of art.

If you have chosen your desired art work, then it's time to hang it. As a general rule, artwork should be hung so that the center point of that art work is at eye level. Hang the art work approximately 60-65 inches from the floor. If hung over a sofa or headboard, it should be approximately around 10 inches from the furniture. And never leave a large space between the art work and the furniture.

Have fun picking out art works that you want on your bedroom wall. Make sure that you decorate your bedroom in such a way that will convey to others your distinct style and personality.
