Designmint team is going to make it much simple for you by helping you to select the right artwork for the right place.

Observe this steps every time you choose an artwork  :-

Select the area :- Be very careful while selecting the area. Select the most visible area in your room. Not every vacant wall needs an art work because then it would be like a mess of various art works.  While you are selecting an area make sure neighboring  walls are vacant, its only then your art piece is going be in limelight and shine.

Work  on the color scheme :-  After selecting the area, match your color scheme.  Select the art piece that goes well with the color of the walls and surrounding. If neighboring walls are having vibrant color, some understated metal art will definitely work on them.  If wall posses cool color paint, bright colors like red , green or yellow will make the room more lively.


Exploration : There are many art forms, from traditional artforms like drawings and paintings to most recent ones which are made up of metals, fabrics and glass works. Be open minded and have an experimental approach while selecting art piece for your home.

Hang it right:– The whole point of having an art work is to add life to that space. Hence its very necessary to hang it right. It should be not be hung too high or too low. Right in front of your eyes would be perfect. You can also follow art gallery standard, which means the center of the painting should be about 60 inches from the floor.

Light it up:- After placing your art work, see if there’s enough light to keep your art piece in limelight. Play little with your existing lights, but make sure it’s not overemphasized. Using proper lights around your art piece will draw attention of lots of visitors.
