Pro Tips for Wall Decor

Indeed, wall decor is the key to making any room feel complete. It is also a fun way to express your personal style and tap into your creativity. In this article, we provide some pro tips for you when you are decorating your wall.

Don’t Go Too High

It is important not to hang your artwork too high when considering your wall decor. To put it another way, the centre of the artwork should be at eye level. This helps viewers to understand the perspective which the artist used to construct the art. Besides that, viewers can admire and make judgment of the artwork from a distance and scales of the objects within.

Another point to take note, the artwork should be lower if you like to place it in the living room. Because people are usually sitting. Check out the artwork “Love and Affection” by a Malaysian artist May Lee.

Avoid Direct Sunlight

Even though natural sunlight is an environmental friendly option to highlight your artwork, it is advised not to do so. Direct contact with sunlight after a considerable long period of time might cause the artwork to warp, crack and fade in colour. Despite the high quality of paint artists are using, certain precautions still need to be taken care of by the collectors when designing the wall decor.

The average longevity for oil paintings can last for around 500 years, while for acrylic paintings, theoretically speaking can last for centuries if properly used as they will be less prone to cracking compared to oil paintings.

Keep The Layout Simple

If you have a tiny bedroom, then “Keep It Simple” is the key here for your wall decor. We suggest you to place the bed in the center of the main wall, rather than pushing one side up against the adjacent wall. Being that you have room to walk, and it is important for the room flow. In addition, hang some small paintings on the wall. So that you can maximise your space and also bring new life to your room.

Scale of the Art — Only 75% of The Furniture

It is crucial to find a good scale of the artwork according to where you like to hang it. For example, artwork hanging over a piece of furniture ideally should be 75% of that object or space. That is to say, it should not be wider than the width of that furniture. For the simple reason that, if the scale or size of the art is too big or too small, the whole arrangement looks strange and imbalance.

Even if you have a classic modern design living room, you can always add a colourful or whimsical painting for your wall decor.
