Nothing makes a house feel more like a home than an enticing display of art. Not only can carefully selected artwork add personality to your decor, it can enhance your home’s interior design by adding layers and visual interest. With such a huge selection of paintings, fine art prints, and sculptures available, it can be overwhelming trying to find that perfect piece. Check out these tips to help you narrow down your artwork search:

Choose wall art you love.

The number one rule for selecting artwork is that it should speak to you. If it isn’t meaningful in any way, it’s best to keep searching. If you’ve themed your furniture and décor around a certain color or idea, that can get you started in your search. Many paintings and other artwork have a cultural theme, such as aboriginal art or Japanese art. On the other hand, black and white photography goes great with anything. Whatever style you choose, just make sure it represents your tastes, interests or history.

Check out every type of wall art out there.

If you’re looking for paintings that fit perfectly with your traditional décor, consider fine art prints. These are a great alternative if you can’t afford genuine Picasso paintings or works by other famous artists. Pencil art and some sculptures can also fit in well with a traditional scheme. If you’re in the mood for some modern artwork, illustrations and mixed media are a great place to start. Sculptures made from metal or glass can also have a modern tone. Try going bold with abstract paintings, urban art or pop art, which tend to incorporate more modern influences like graffiti and celebrities, plus bright colors. Photographs work well with any décor as they can cross between modern and traditional easily depending on the subject matter. Don’t be afraid to mix and match, either. A modern piece can go amazingly well with a traditional home, and vice versa.

Arrange your new artwork for optimal viewing.

Once you’ve found those perfect, meaningful pieces, you’ll want to place them in a spot that allows everyone who passes by to admire them. Common locations for artwork include above a seating area or, better yet, facing your seating arrangement. Proper lighting and visibility is also important, as is hanging your new pieces at the correct height. Aim for eye level or the gallery standard, which says the center of your paintings should be approximately 60 inches from the floor.

As Advertised: The print is great, quality frame. Such a great addition to our home office. I was nervous about shipping because of the glass frame, but the packaging was very sturdy and there were no problems.
By the Beach Fine Art Canvas Print by Parvez Taj, 60"x20"
March 8, 2017
At Peace: When I enter the bedroom where this painting is hanging above my bed, I find it calming and wish I was sitting in one of these chairs on the beach with my recently passed away love of my life. This painting is soothing to look at. The artist created a beautiful piece of art.
"Beach Scene II" Artwork by Susan Bryant, White Glossy Molding, 20"x20"
March 26, 2018
Great!: Very nice piece, looks high quality, and it's very beautiful. The only thing is that with the chrome finish, when you handle it while hanging up it leaves noticeable finger marks on the frame that are a little hard to remove with a soft cloth afterwards. It's probably best to use cloth gloves when handling it.

"Golden Forest" Hand Painted Oil Canvas Art

Simple, but big impact!: I ordered this canvas for my mostly monochromatic dining room. I love that it’s simple and neutral, so I can easily add seasonal pops of color to the centerpiece. We’ve already had a lot of compliments on this piece!
Thin Woman Surrealist Modern Statue
December 9, 2018
Better than expected: I ordered the male and female statue for placement in my display built-in around my big TV in the family room. the statues are not bronze, but look very expensive and worked beautifully. The color is perfect due to it being mixed - gold base with bronze-like glaze and some silver - so it mixes well with all metals used in my case. Excellent pieces.
