When choosing a painting for your Wall, size is one of the most important factors to take into consideration. Not only does it affect the visual impact of the artwork, but it also affects how it fits into its surrounding space. Whether you’re looking to fill a large wall or just add a touch of accent to a smaller area, there are several key elements that you should consider when selecting the right size painting for your décor.
First, measure the available space on your Wall where the painting will hang. Most people tend to overestimate how much wall area they have available and end up with paintings that are too small for the space. To ensure that your painting looks balanced in proportion to its surrounding environment, divide the measured width and height of the available space by two. This will give you an optimal scale for a single art piece. For example, if your Wall is 8 feet wide by 10 feet high, an ideal painting size would be 4 feet wide by 5 feet high (8/2 = 4; 10/2 = 5).
If you’re looking to paint an entire wall with a large mural or piece of artwork, then make sure to select something that’s larger than or equal to the given measurements. You don’t want a piece that’s too small as it won’t effectively cover enough surface area and could look out of place on such a huge canvas. Also, be aware of any furniture or other objects near your chosen spot, as they can influence how large each individual item needs to be in order to make an impact.
When it comes to creating focal points within a room, bigger is usually better when selecting the right size painting for your walls. Larger pieces create more interest and draw more attention in comparison to smaller works of art which can get lost amongst other furniture items and decorations in the space around them. For example, if you have an empty feature wall and want something eye-catching, that will stand out without overwhelming everything else in sight, then opt for something grandeur like a 60-inch framed print over something petite like a 9 x 12-inch miniature version.
If you’re dealing with limited amounts of space, then go for multiple pieces instead of one big statement item – this way, you can still fill out the allotted area without overcrowding it. Choose designs that vary in size from small accent pieces like 5 x 7 inches up to larger ones like 24 x 36 inches so that all areas are adequately covered and balanced out visually with each other. Grouped together, these mini masterpieces can create an intriguing display whilst still leaving enough breathing room between them so as not to disrupt their individual beauty too much nor detract away from their combined effect as one artwork collage grouping.
In short, whatever size painting you choose should reflect both its own presence within its designated area along with how it plays off against other elements within its nearby environment – i.e., furniture placements, window/door openings, etcetera though due consideration should be taken at all times according to proportionate sizing and proper weighting against other nearby items so as not detract away from any potential focal points created through such external influences being either diminished or exaggerated in effect respectively; something which Edwards Pros Quality Painting experts understand fully well when discussing possible client needs & preferences providing our customers unparalleled professional advice alongside our penchant for producing some truly stunning results!
