How to Choose the Right Framed Art Work for your Walls

Choosing the perfect framed art work for your walls does not have to be a chore. You can easily find the right framed art that will work with your walls in a fun and fantastic way. The best way to begin is to pick one room to work with at a time. If you find yourself trying to choose framed art prints for several rooms at the same time you may find you get very stressed out or pick the wrong thing. By doing one room at a time you will allow yourself, the time and knowledge needed to get the job done right and fast.


The key to finding what and how many pieces of artwork you will need is to examine the available wall space in the room you have chosen to start in. You will want to be sure that your decorating scheme is perfect and complete.

You may find that you have all different sized spaces for framed art in your room, which will necessitate choosing different sized artwork to fit these dimensions separately. Another important rule is to make sure that the design your choose fits the motif of the room it is made for. Do not buy modern if you have decorated in a country or rustic theme. Stay focused on tying your room together as one masterpiece.

When looking for the perfect-framed art, it is good to already have some ideas on the type and styles that you are looking for that fit your specific requirements. For example, if you have your living room decorated in a country theme with a color scheme of country blue and yellow, you do not want to pick out a piece of framed art that is in a black, red and white modern motif. It does not matter how good it looks in the store, it will look awful in the room you are shopping for.

You should also have a good idea of the measurements you are looking for as well. This will help you to get the exact size that you need to fit your wall space. You should also ensure that, when looking around for framed art, you know that the size they are giving you is the actual frame size, not just the picture size.

Many folks find that when they are looking for framed art for one room that they see something that they believe will be perfect for another room. The question is to buy or not to buy. The best thing to do if you just know this is the right framed art for a specific room is to either buy it or ask for it to be out on hold. If you choose to buy this beauty, make sure that it can be returned if it is the wrong size or ends up not matching the room’s decor as much as you thought it would. You will not be pleased to be stuck with something you cannot get your money back on as well as have no use for.

The best option is to just say no to impulse buying. Go after the framed art work you are prepared to shop for and make a mental note that the room you are thinking about is next. If you want to have, the best in framed art on your walls, then stick to a plan that works.
