Whether you recently moved into a new space or you’re simply looking to do a bit of redecorating in the one that you currently live in, one way to make the rooms in your house come alive is to add some art and accessories.
If you already have some pieces that you really like, but you’re not sure how to arrange them in such a way that they’ll standout, this is the right article for you to read. It is going to share with you five tips for showcasing your art and accessories in such a way that your home will look truly beautiful.
Hang some of your artifacts. If you happen to have some artifacts that are exquisite enough to show off but are not large in size, something that you might want to think about doing is hanging them on your wall. In fact, accessories are one of the best ways to make walls appear multi-dimensional. Plus, they are great conversational pieces too.
Mix your shapes. If you have some pictures or prints that you want to put up but you haven’t gotten around to framing them, before you do consider this: rather than getting the same style or sized frames, try looking for some in complementary colors and different sizes. Then arrange them on your wall in such a way that different shapes are in proximity to each other. It’s a creative way to display your art.
Align art in a vertical position. Do you happen to have a very narrow wall that is just wide enough to put some art on? If so, think about aligning the pieces in a vertical position. This can work if it’s a set of pictures or even if it’s something like small vintage plates. Just make sure that the pieces are not larger than the wall itself. They need to fit nicely into the length and width of it.
Take advantage of empty space. If you went to a store like Easy Pedestal to pick up an art stand for a rather larger print and you asked a customer service associate for some tips on how to decorate with accessories, one thing that they may recommend is that you take advantage of some of the empty space that may be in your home. Empty space is considered to be an area that may not be large enough for a lot of art, but can fit in a smaller piece. For instance, you might want to hang a piece of art out in your foyer over a chair or in the space that is right under your staircase.
Be creative with accent walls. Sometimes the walls you have can help to serve as a part of your art display. For instance, by painting a brightly-colored accent wall in your dining room or even your master bedroom and then arranging some black and white prints or candid pictures, it can be a fun way to showcase some of your favorite pictures. You can find a variety of frames at your local arts and craft store and tools to hang your art and accessories at your local Lowe’s or Home Depot.
