A well-placed piece of artwork can transform a room. Choosing a piece for a commonly used space, such as the living room, can seem intimidating. To help ease the task of selecting a piece of artwork for your space, we have put together the following list of tips to consider before buying art for your living room.

Choose a piece that you love. Don’t compromise when selecting such an important piece of art for your home. Make sure that you will love seeing the artwork in your home every single day.

Contrast is the key when it comes to selecting artwork for your living room. Focus on contrast in the artwork to complement the space so that it remains a focal point, as opposed to getting lost in the space.

Mix high and low pieces, periods and styles. Try mixing high end paintings with inexpensive street art. The overall look will be a unique collection you have accumulated that tells your story.

To add visual interest to your space, consider placing a contemporary piece in a space that is more traditional and vice versa.

We hope that these tips to consider before buying art for your living room are found helpful when searching for a new piece of art. The process of purchasing new art for your home is an exciting endeavor for any art lover.
