Make your home stand out with wall art.  There are various ways in which you can design your wall with decorative pieces.   This article will guide you on the ‘what’ and ‘how’ aspects of wall art, which gives you a wide array of options like photos, artworks, shelves, mirrors, etc.

  1. PHOTOS & ARTWORKS.  What more can be the best design for your walls but personalized photos and artworks such as paintings?  Photos add a homey and comfortable feeling to any home, while artworks are simply amazing pictures to behold.  Frame types can widely vary, but make sure to use the same color in order to create a unified look; or if you are aiming for the eclectic type of room, then you must use complementary colors for your frames.  In all cases, all photos and artworks should be kept at an eye level.  In addition, when you have several wall arts, properly group them together in a horizontal, vertical, or quadrant manner.  Knowing how to group pieces correctly will give your room a better appearance, such as the case when you hang your wall arts horizontally or side by side it will give the room the illusion of being larger and more spacious.
  2. SHELVES.  Shelves do not only serve as an additional storage for any room, but it also accentuates a given space.  It is okay to go wild and daring for the shelves since they can be put up in a room for a finished look.  Moreover, what’s important are the materials or mementos placed in the shelf.   These can be anything that ranges from books to trophies and photographs to souvenirs.  Just keep in mind to group items by theme or function in order to create a unified appearance.
  3. MIRRORS.  There is no general rule when it comes to mirrors.  These decorative pieces are very flexible and there is no problem in finding the perfect match for your home.  Mirrors can serve as a room’s focal point that brings light, depth, and the impression of additional space.
  4. OTHERS.  If you got the budget and the boldness to experiment with wall pieces, you might want to try installing living walls that can be composed of different types of plants.  These living walls add a natural complement to urban settings, and gives off that fresh and calming feeling after a tiring day.  You can also use mosaics and murals as wall art, which can either be simple black and white or colorful but in any case work with almost all wall types.
