Check the size of the art in terms of the width of the furniture
When choosing art to hang, first check the width of the furniture in the area where you want to hang it.
Selecting art that does not exceed the width of the furniture will ensure a good balance between the furniture and the art.
Choose art that does not exceed the width of the furniture.
When hanging art above furniture such as beds, sofas, shelves, and cabinets, choose art that does not exceed the width of the furniture.
In the upper bedroom photo, two pieces of art are hung above the bed. Long horizontal or square art is well balanced when hung on the wall above furniture.
Vertical art should be hung on a vertical wall.
As you can see in the center of the upper bedroom photo, long vertical art can be hung on the wall next to the furniture or next to the window to create a beautiful interior that looks great on a vertical wall.
If vertical art is to be hung on a wall above furniture, it should be placed above short pieces of furniture such as sofas, desks, or tables. Displaying vertical art near a floor stand for lighting emphasizes the vertical balance and creates a clean interior.
Select artwork that matches the taste of the furniture.
It is important to choose paintings that match the taste of the furniture.
If the taste of the furniture and the paintings match, the interior will look unified, clean, and sophisticated.
Does the furniture look massive? Does it look light?
Paintings in subdued or not-too-light colors look good when displayed near dark-colored furniture such as dark brown or black, or furniture with a chunky, heavy design.
If you are decorating near light-colored furniture such as white, beige, or light gray, or furniture with a light impression, hang paintings in bright, light, or vivid colors.
Is the furniture taste Orthodox or casual?
If the room is furnished with orthodox furniture that would be suitable for classical music, paintings painted in a traditional manner with motifs such as landscapes or figures would look good in the room.
If you have a contemporary interior or casual furnishings, art with strong creative colors, such as contemporary art or abstract paintings, will fit perfectly with the atmosphere of the room.
Learn about art painting and furniture placement.
When hanging art on the wall next to furniture, carefully consider the balance between the furniture and the artwork to determine the best placement of the artwork.
We will look at hanging art above furniture and hanging art on the wall next to furniture.
When hanging on the wall above furniture
When hanging artwork on a wall above a sofa, desk, or other piece of furniture, hang the artwork in the middle of the wall from the left or right edge of the furniture, looking at the horizontal plane of the furniture.
If you are hanging multiple pieces of art side by side, hang them side by side if they are similar in size.
If you want to add movement, you can hang them on different levels.
The height of the artwork on the wall should match the height of your eyes when you are standing.
Hanging on a wall next to furniture
When hanging on a wall next to a piece of furniture, hang the artwork in the middle of the wall from the left or right edge, depending on the width of the wall.
If there is tall furniture, such as a floor stand, move the artwork to the left or right so that it does not overlap the furniture and make it difficult to see.
Balancing art in a room with furniture creates a sophisticated interior.
