Nightstand

Bedrooms are meant to be calm happy places. Adding some art to your bedroom is always a great choice to add a personal touch. Style a small framed art print with a little trinket dish on your nightstand to create some visual interest.

Bookshelf

Chair

We all have those random chairs lying around. Sit a framed artwork on it and place it in an unused corner. This is great option if your home has some dead space in awkward corners too low for larger furniture.

Radiator

Older building often have broken and unused radiators. Put a medium sized framed print on top of it, and place larger and smaller framed artworks on the ground to create an unexpected gallery.

Instead of making holes in the wall, either use command strips to hang lighter framed art prints, or stick unframed art prints to your wall. Gallery walls look amazing over a bed, couch or across a hallway wall.

Art Shelf

If you only want to make a couple of holes, consider hanging an art shelf. These sturdy shelves are made to hold several pieces of art and a couple of smaller home decor items such as candle sticks, books or small bowls. Stagger the sizes, and add perhaps layer three or five pieces of art on the shelf (try to work in odd numbers as they look best).

Floor Gallery

If your landlord is a little more strict, creating a floor gallery is a fun design opportunity. Place different sized art prints on the floor, or a small bench/box to create some height variation. These galleries look amazing in subtle neutrals for a more Scandinavian look, or with bold colours to create a focal point in your space.

Wall Prints | 5 Reasons Artwork Makes A Room

Focal Point

Bold artwork can instantly transform any space creating a focal point that will immediately draw the eye. Show off your personal style with a vintage matisse print or a colourful modern abstract.

Ties in Colour

Art is the perfect place to draw a colour palette from. To create a cohesive space, match some elements around the room to the colours in your print or frame, such as pillows, small decor elements or even the couch colour.

Texture

Whether your art is physically textural (for example thick paint) or visually textured (think small patterns making the piece seem to have a texture) adding wall art to a space will give your room dimension. This is crucial for modern or minimalist spaces with all clean lines and simple furniture, the space will seem flat and uninteresting without art.

Space

Adding framed artwork to a room can affect how large the space feels. Similar to the trick of hanging your curtains higher up, adding large art prints higher on your walls will draw your eyes up, making the space feel larger.

Finished Look

Art is the final element in a room that makes the design feel finished. Without framed wall art the space will seem empty and unfinished.
