How to Level Up Your Home with Big Wall Art

If you're looking to add some serious style to your home, big wall art is a great way to do it. You can make a statement with large wall art in your living room, dining room, or hallway. The large wall art will make your home look more luxurious and elegant.

You can use it to create a focal point or to highlight a particular area of the room. Big wall art is also a great way to bring in colors, textures, and patterns that you might not be able to find in your furniture or accessories.

A big wall painting can be a little intimidating at first, though, because there are so many options out there. But don't worry — we've rounded up some of our favorite pieces for every room in your house and provided tips on how to get the biggest bang for your buck.

 

Living Room: Make a Statement with Wall Hangings

A big art or canvas painting is a perfect way to create an impact in your home. The first thing you want to do is decide what size you want your wall art to be. Think about how much space you have available on your walls and what kind of impact you want it to have. If it’s too small, it won’t look as dramatic as it could be and if it’s too large, it could overwhelm the room or take away from other elements in the room like lighting or furniture placement.

Once you have decided on the size of your big art wall painting, think about what kind of style you want for your piece, and then find something that matches that style! You can search for artwork online or check out local galleries where artists are selling their work directly from their studios or online stores like Andy okay.

Dining Room: Play Up Your Favorite Colors with Framed Prints

A dining room is one of those rooms that can get lost in plain white walls — unless you add some bold colors and textures into the mix. The dining room is a great place for big wall art because it's often the first thing people see when you invite people over dinner or lunch to your home. If you want something simple and elegant, try a large framed print that features one of your favorite colors or patterns. You can also add some texture to the space by choosing a piece with an abstract design or repeating pattern. Try adding some greenery to make the room feel more welcoming and inviting.

Living Room: Hang Big Wall Art Above the Sofa

Your living room is another ideal location for large framed prints because it's typically one of the largest rooms in your house and therefore needs some extra visual interest. You could choose one piece or several pieces of art depending on how much space you have — just make sure they all complement each other so they don't look too busy or confusing. One way to ensure your art looks cohesive is by choosing pieces that have similar colors or tones in them, which will help tie them together and make the room feel more harmonious.

Bathroom: Use Big Wall Art To Accentuate A Feature Wall

The bathroom is often one of the hardest rooms for people to decorate. There are so many things that need to be taken into consideration when you're designing this area, such as making sure that all of your toiletries fit nicely into the cabinet or finding a place for all of your towels. 

If you’re looking for an easy way to update your bathroom without spending too much money, try hanging some big wall art above the sink or cover up the awkward space above the toilet as an accent piece. This will draw attention away from any flaws or imperfections in the room while also adding visual interest and personality.

Ending Remarks

Leveraging the considerable size of your wall, as opposed to a smaller canvas, allows you to create a focal point that captures and holds your visitor's attention. 

Therefore, it is time to finally get rid of those miniature works of art that have been adorning your walls for years and hang something far more substantial in their stead. The change it makes to the appearance and atmosphere of your house may surprise you. Not to mention the fact that if you select an item that draws people's attention, it may also create a sense of mystery in your environment and help visitors experience a warmer reception.
