The right place for big art
- Large wall art is a surprisingly great way to optimize small spaces. By focusing on a few large elements, you leave the space looking more open and less cluttered.
- Look for a wall space that’s big enough to support the art. That may mean taking down existing art or reorganizing bookshelves and furniture. Great spaces include walls in the living room or bedroom, space above a minimal mantel or areas between windows. You can also try accent walls or spaces in entrance ways and stairwells.
- Large wall art doesn’t have to be one painting in one frame, either. Large pieces can be spread across a few canvases. This can be good style if you are trying to cover a massive wall.
- Three-dimensional art is another way of expressing creativity in a room, pieces of any variety that stick out from the wall. The texture adds visual interest and helps the art to become a focal point, which is often the objective of large wall art.
