How To Decorate With Wall Art Like A Pro
Wall art is a great way to spice up any blank space. With so many sizes and designs to choose from, you’re bound to have endless possibilities and lots of fun. While window shopping, and even online window shopping, can be enjoyable, it can be overwhelming. If you’re having trouble deciding on the size of your wall art or how to hang one or multiple pictures, trouble yourself no more because this blog entry is for you. Follow these three tips and you’ll be hanging your wall art like a pro in no time.
1. How To Choose Your Wall Art Size
Size is a big consideration when it comes to wall art size. The size of your wall will dictate if you’ll be doing one big piece or multiple smaller pieces. A good rule of thumb is to fill up the entire width of the wall, with an allowance of around half a foot or one foot on all sides. This will help your wall art look balanced and centered.

2. How To Hang Wall Art Over A Table, Bed, or Sofa
Find wall art that’s of similar length to the furniture it’ll be on top of. Keep the proportions of your wall art and furniture in pair. If you can’t find something of a similar size, feel free to go smaller, but not wider. Wider wall art won’t look nice with your furniture. When hanging wall art above anything, make sure there’s an allowance of 6-8 inches from the bottom edge of the wall art canvas to the upper edge of the table, bed, or sofa.

3. How To Decorate Huge Walls
One large wall art canvas can be overwhelming to behold, monotonous to the eye, or just plain expensive. You’re better of compiling multiple smaller pieces and arranging them in a simple grid, if they’re all the same size, or in a pattern like a gallery. Multiple wall art pieces will instantly give your space a very contemporary feel.
