What wall art should I get?

 

Choosing the ideal wall art for your space can be a daunting task if you lack experience in this area. This is why United Interiors is going to help simplify the process by outlining some of the best wall art options for general areas within the home. By introducing wall art into your space, you will immediately elevate your interior design and create interest and texture in your home. If you want to create a memorable space that has personality and a unique style, ensure you make choices based on expert advice.

 

Create a feeling.

An important factor of wall art is that it evokes emotion from its intended audience. This means you want to ensure you choose art based on what you want to feel within your space. For example, in the main dining room or sun-soaked breakfast nook, you may want to create a gleeful or energised vibe that can be enjoyed in the mornings. If so, ensure you choose art that aligns with these feelings by keeping in mind the colour psychology of your chosen piece/s. You
may have noticed that beautiful bright colours combined, reflect some of the most joyful
moments and sceneries in life. Such as fields of multi-coloured flowers, rainbows and tropical sceneries like rainforests or technicolour beach sunsets. Use this knowledge to choose accordingly.

Calm your busy household.

The modern world can be a mad rush, with little downtime—especially during the working week. If you want to create a relaxing sanctuary where you can comfortably retreat away from the hustle and bustle each day—try incorporating soothing blue abstract pieces. Or try wall art that features rounded water elements, blue skies or soft pastel colours as these will immediately aid in bringing your mood to a more peaceful level as opposed to vivid colours with sharp edges that are more invigorating.

Incorporate your surroundings.

This is important if you want to elevate your indoor and outdoor cohesion and create a space that is relevant and practical for your location. For example, if you live on the water, or by the ocean, particularly in any kind of tropical climate—embracing the ‘holiday home’ decor is clever and emotive for your space. There’s no better feeling than when you’re in holiday mode, so feel free to embrace the beauty of nature and adventure in your choice of wall art to embody this theme. This may be a nautical painting in your entrance or a duo of coral prints in your guest room to remind people how close the water is when they wake up each morning. If you’re lucky enough to live in a location like this, be sure to seize this opportunity, because it’s one of those themes that can only work if your location genuinely reflects these elements. Inner city apartments or landlocked suburban streets with seashell acrylic pieces or nautical compass paintings may look very out of place!

Take your time.

Often people rush the process of buying wall art or just match the existing colours of their main lounge room for example with a chosen piece. In an all-beige room, a predominantly beige piece is selected because it’s quick and seamless. Now, this is a great strategy if executed correctly as colour cohesion can have a huge effect in large areas within the home. However, choose your wall art with the same finesse as you would when choosing the perfect couch or dining table. The walls in your home are an extension of your interior design and careful consideration is needed to ensure you’re elevating the space rather than neutralising it with chosen wall art. If you do opt for the colour cohesion, try experimenting with different textures of wall art or a pop of colour alongside the primary room colour you’re looking to replicate on canvas.

Understand scale to keep your home balanced.

Oversized: One metre or larger in length—oversized art pieces act as the ideal focal point of a room within your home. They look beautiful when placed above an equally-as-big piece of furniture, such as a couch, bed or dining table too. This has the potential to create a sense of grandeur within your home if done right.

Large: Generally speaking, a large wall art option is between 80 and 100 centimetres in length. The enlarged wall art pieces available at United Interiors are perfect as centrepieces in gallery walls, a focal point on medium sized walls or can be rested on a surface like the floor or countertop to elevate the modern creativity within your space.

Medium: Medium-sized wall art is approximately 60 to 80 centimetres in length and is generally the most versatile size and is great in both larger homes and for apartment living. Incorporate dual medium-sized wall art pieces into a larger gallery wall or use a singular medium-sized wall art piece on a regular sized entrance wall. They also look great in a bathroom or adjacent to the kitchen. The creative options are endless for such a convenient wall art size.

Small: Small frames are approximately 45 to 60 centimetres long and are ideal for grouping together for the last stage of your gallery wall. Combine two to six small pieces of wall art for a dynamic effect on a major wall within your home. This is ideal for home offices and living/dining rooms.

Mini: Generally, mini wall art is sized between 25 and 45 centimetres in length and without a doubt should always be grouped together to make an impact. You can use 4-6 on one wall or 20+ for larger more intensive designs. Use mini wall art as the finishing touch for gallery walls too. Mix and match with larger frames of different art mediums too—the freedom is yours with mini wall art frames.
