Are you in need of room improvement? If you find yourself sitting in the middle of a room looking around, feeling that something is missing, you might need to consider bringing in some art from an art gallery to improve your room design.
Design is complete once everything in the composition gives a sense of contentment. Sometimes a little enhancement is needed or a big change to finish a room. In either case, art might just be the key. Here are 8 ways art can improve your room design.
Setting the Atmosphere and Sense of Space with Color
You can do magic with color. Spaces can be transformed with a simple change of paintings, prints, furniture pieces, and more. The use of color is one of the simplest and most immediate ways to elevate and convert a room.
If you finesse your use of color, it can refine the space to where nothing else is needed. Color speaks for itself. While it may be one of the easiest methods for improving your room design, there are points to remember before going off and picking any color.
As you pursue color wheels, keep in mind the function and feeling you want in the room, as this will be directly affected by color. Be mindful of shades, tones, color families, use of warm and cool colors, compliments, neutrals, and more. It takes one color to make a memorable room, and one color to throw everything off.
Enhancing Your Room with Texture
An element of art that tends to be forgotten about is texture, and texture can make a big difference. Texture can be utilized in different ways from adding subtle nuance or elaborate presence.
If you want to be more low-key with texture, consider the seamless blend of the materials in your room, from tile to wall, to furniture, to brush strokes on a canvas. If maximalist and stand-out pieces are more your speed, try out a large area rug or huge, or sizable canvas with layers of paint.
Creating a Focal Point for Your Room
When you walk into a room, there is a general space that your eyes will fall on. Most of the time it’s the center of the room or the room’s focal point.
This habit can be especially helpful in selecting an art piece. You can purposefully choose a standout piece, something that you have thought about and considered how the viewers will interpret it.
The art looks good, but it also feels good. The power of art extends beyond complementing decor. Art evokes feeling. You might feel a sense of calm, excitement, inspiration, or serenity depending on the piece of art you choose. What matters most, is how the art speaks to you. What do you see when your eyes fall on a piece? How do you feel, or how do you want to feel?
Bring Movement to an Otherwise Static Space
It may be difficult to picture movement in a static space; after all, walls don’t move, unless you have a secret passageway in your home. However, for the most part, walls stay still and so does the art on them; but, you can still bring movement to your room through art.
Art has various elements that are utilized for a final work, and one of them is movement, which can be tricky when the piece is not moving. Still, movement can be integrated into art and design through strategic arrangement, forming lines and patterns that give a sense of movement.
Making a Signature or Statement Piece
A good piece of art makes a statement, and artwork that represents you becomes a signature. You can really use art as a room accessory to connect all the elements of a room, make the room pop, and also show you. The art you pick out can also work as both, a signature and statement, saying something about you, your personality, taste, and style.
Bringing Life into Your Space
When you think of art, what comes to mind? A photo? A statue? That’s true, they are works of art, but art goes beyond that. It is well known how art impacts lives, is resonating, and speaks when words are insufficient, and it also has the possibility of bringing life into your space.
How is this done you might ask? Of course, you can bring in landscape photographs, and paintings of natural scenes, but remember how “art goes beyond”? You can literally use life to make art. Liven spaces with natural works of art, such as moss fixtures, creative gardens, and pieces with natural elements.
Adding the Finishing Touch
Do you ever enter a space and look around and feel like something is missing? It might just be a piece of art. Including an art piece in your room can quiet the nagging whisper in the back of your mind that something is missing. It can complete the space, adding a finishing touch.
Sometimes all it takes for a room to look amazing is that finishing touch. It can pull everything in the room together, elevate the space, and give the room the appearance of something more. Rooms may simply be spaces for occupation but adding art, whether a bust, a canvas print, or a large installation can transform it into a space you never want to leave.
A room functions as a space to be utilized, but it can be more than that. A sanctuary, a source of inspiration, a workforce, a piece of a home. Art is an excellent resource for room design when you feel like something is missing and a room is not quite complete.
Finalize your room design with art by adding splashes of color and texture. Utilize art as a focal point to direct your visitors’ eyes, evoke feelings, and display your personal tastes. Try uncommon methods to include movement and bring life into the room. Finish your space off with a resonating piece and see how your room design is completed.
