When decorating a modern interior living room with wall arts, choose arts that match the image of the interior.
Let’s take a look at some specific tips on how to choose a wall art.

Modern interior design is simple

Modern interior design is a contemporary interior design.

A modern interior living room gives the impression of having a sofa or other reception set, cabinets, and other furniture, and lighting with a simple design.

Modern interior design is not too assertive, making it an easy space for many people to spend time in.

Tips for choosing an art for the living room

The living room is a large room with large sofas and other furniture, so a large painting on a large wall is a good choice.
A medium-sized painting on the wall above a cabinet or other piece of furniture would be well-balanced.

The living room is a large room, so the impression will vary greatly depending on the type of arts you choose to hang.
A vivid painting with clear colors will create a glamorous interior, while a painting with muted tones will create a calm interior.

Abstract paintings are also suitable for a modern living room

A living room with a modern interior looks good with an abstract painting.

Modern interiors have a clean impression, so in addition to landscapes and portraits, abstract paintings with simple designs can also be chosen.

Modern living rooms have subdued colors such as white, black, gray, and brown, so choosing a brightly colored abstract painting that will be a point of interest in the interior will help create a cheerful space.

We encourage you to choose a painting that suits your living room interior.

When decorating a living room, choose a place to hang a wall art while keeping a good balance with the furniture to create a sophisticated interior.
Here are some important points to consider when hanging a wall art.

Hang on the wall at eye level

When hanging an art on a large wall in the living room, hang it at a height that matches your eye level when you stand in the room and look at the wall.

A good balance is to hang it in the middle of the wall. If you have furniture near the wall, shift the hanging place to the left or right, keeping an eye on the balance with the furniture.

When displaying on a wall above furniture such as cabinets, it is also easier to view the art if it is displayed at eye level when you are standing.

Display the main subject of the art proudly

Modern living rooms are characterized by clean, uncluttered interiors.
Taking advantage of the clean interior, it is better to limit the number of arts to be displayed in order to create a comfortable space.

It is a good idea to proudly hang your favorite art that are likely to be the star of the show.
If you have a large living room, you can hang a few arts at a little distance from each other.
