Tips to Choosing Interior Design Wall Art


Welcome to the series of blog posts to help you choose art that's right for you. You can be your own interior designer!



The stylistic icing on the cake that is your home is wall hangings, paintings, and pictures. Wall art catches the eye, unifies space, and adds warmth to your home.

The time spent looking for and installing parts you like is well worth it because it enhances your home while also adding personality.



Although there are no hard and fast rules for decorating a house, following these guidelines will help you find the perfect wall art. Size, design, color, theme, inspiration, and floor plan are all options. The possibilities are endless.


Decorating a home is an exciting process. But if you’re not careful, all of the interior design wall art options can become overwhelming. To help keep the process simple, follow these tips for choosing interior design wall art that is right for you.

  1. Pictures should not be more than two-thirds longer than your sofa.

  2. Photos should be at least 15 centimeters above the edge of your furniture.

  3. A small piece of art can't fill a big space. Group small pieces together. ...

  4. Consider the height of ceilings when choosing size.



The most important piece of advice to remember when looking for wall art is to find something you like. If you see something that doesn't make you feel happy, excited, or relaxed, don't hang it on your wall. You want your wall art to represent your personality and taste, not current trends, because it is your home, your design, and your money.

Although it is normal for family members to make sacrifices when making these decisions, this does not mean you do. You live in your house, so appreciate the artwork on your walls and let them represent your personal style. Find a piece of wall art that has the ability to transform a room in your home.

When it comes to wall art, it's difficult to decide what size print you want if you don't know what you're looking for. For a faster collection, start your quest for wall art with a size in mind.



Do you want to redecorate a room? Many people prefer to begin with the larger pieces and work their way down the list to the smaller coordinating pieces. Start with this if you want a larger statement piece above your sofa because it will be the first thing people see. As you begin to put your room together, the smaller supporting components you choose will begin to add up, and before you know it, your home will be decked out with your favorite designs.

Oversized: These pieces have a length of at least 100 centimeters. Measure your room to see if it can handle a piece this big before you purchase it. Oversized wall art serves as a focal point for a wall or space, and it works especially well when positioned above a statement piece of furniture like a sofa or dining table.

Large: This frame size ranges between 80 and 100 centimeters in length. Large wall art may be used as a focal point or balanced on either side with smaller parts. The norm is one to two large pieces per bed.

Medium: The length of the wall art in this group varies from 60 to 70 centimeters. Some pieces may be used alone, but medium-sized pieces look great when grouped together. When adding medium wall hangings, try to keep your room symmetrical.

Small: Small frames range in length from 45 to 59 centimeters and work well in groups of three to six hangings. Why not combine these smaller style frames with other mixed sizes to create an impressive gallery wall if you want to make an impression with them?

Mini: Mini frames are the smallest in dimension, ranging from 25 to 44 centimeters. Consider something smaller than a sheet of paper as a miniature work of art. They're mostly sold as sets, with at least three or four of them being sold together.


When it comes to choosing wall art, have a general idea of the size you like. Bathrooms, like most living rooms, are too small for oversized wall art, and most living rooms aren't decorated with minis.

There are a few general sizing recommendations to consider:


The length of your pictures does not exceed two-thirds of the length of your sofa.

At least 15 centimeters above the edge of your furniture should be used for photos.

A small piece of art would not be able to fill a large room. Small items should be grouped together. Works by the same artist or in the same color scheme would look great together.

When selecting a size, keep in mind the height of the ceilings. Make sure it's long and wide enough to fill the room, but not too close to the ceiling height.


Stay tuned for more coming soon! I hope you enjoy the tips, and the art. Come back soon.
