5 Tips to Help You Choose Perfect Wall structure Skill for Large Spaces
Now that you're a happy home owner, it is time to deck your wall surfaces with fine art that shows you. Your newfound soaring ceilings and available floor plan can feel a little empty without something to brighten the surfaces. Creating a cohesive feel is very important, so that it could require purchasing some additional bits to complement the fine art you already own.
Listed below are five things to consider whenever choosing (or repurposing) skill for your new large spaces, plus a couple of case-studies from my own home.

Think About Size
Smaller artwork is much easier to come across, it's much easier to store and it's generally cheaper - so most people have a lot more small stuff, which works great if you have a snug bedroom, or a cramped hallway. However in an expansive room with high ceilings? Not really much.
Think about the wall structure around a bit of art as part of the art. You want to buy to be always a natural expansion of what's there. In the event the art's too small, it will be stressed by the emptiness and fade away - and it'll give off a timid and helpless vibe. Whether it's too big, it will feel like a giant wearing too-small jeans - also wii look.
For large spaces, there are several solutions: the foremost is simply looking for bigger pieces of art. The second reason is to choose something that isn't a framed image (more about that below). And the 3rd is to use several pieces of art in combination with one another, to produce a larger piece.
With high ceilings and large wall surfaces, a small little bit of artwork above the foundation simply won't do.
As an example, in my own home, the bed room (pictured above) has vaulted ceilings that reach 17 foot in height. A little dinky framed thing above the foundation simply wasn't heading to slice it. I needed something bigger.
Choose a Type of Fine art That Works
Fine art isn't only a framed printing or poster. There are quite additional decorative choices you may make. For example, buying a wall-mounted shelf and placing figurines or vases onto it can be a great way to decorate a more substantial space using collectibles that you already have. Or, getting aggregate decor to take up a larger space can work well, such as this Umbra Wallflower set - check out their site for additional options.
Other options include mounting decorative plates in a row, adding a large reflection or using decals - that are surprisingly hip and often look good. Have a look at WallPops!, for some ideas.
When deciding what you want to put up a wall membrane, it's okay to believe outside the pack. A big framed picture is often the least interesting (and often most expensive) choice. (Though, for my bedroom example, I decided to go with three 16"x20" framed prints - fairly orthodox.)
Keep Coloring in Mind
What color is the furniture in the area? What about the wall? Think about accent pillows? Each one of these things matter and the skill (and framing) should match the color of the space around it. While this can be challenging, the results will be far better when everything is coordinated. Not matchy-matchy automatically, but of the same color family and feel.
In my bedroom, for example, I decided to go with three floral images with softer hues that are presented by the Wythe Blue of the wall structure, while the frames are dark solid wood, matching the color of the headboard and lampshades.
The floral prints are of the same color family as the wall membrane and quilt, while the casings match the solid wood of the headboard.
REMEMBER the Frame
If you choose to hang an image, the body should complement both the d?cor of the area and the colouring and design of the part itself. You'll also need to decide if you would like matting or not - while matting can boost the wall structure size of an inferior piece, be wary of allowing a print to drown in its boundary. In most cases, smaller bits with very large matting only do well if the image is very simple and visible from afar. If someone needs to peer up close at a piece to understand it, considerable matting is a no-no.
As for the frame material, there are several choices. A wood framework with a carved design can have a nice shabby-chic feel, particularly if it's been decorated. For a direct vintage look, plain dark wood frames work great. If you need a modernist or modern vibe, metal or black structures are the strategy to use.
Also, if you want attractive d?cor, you shouldn't be fearful to go with a bright-colored body, particularly if the bedroom requires a pop and your color choice fits another accent in the space.
LOWER COSTS Where You Can
If you're going with a print, framing can be expensive. Keep costs down by only using prints that easily fit into standard-sized frames, that are significantly cheaper than custom frames. You can also look for antique frames at garage area and estate sales and then work backward, filling in the photo after you have the frame.
Or, one of the features of a wall-mounted shelf or other unorthodox beautification is having less framework - that can often be a big cost benefits. There are often creative workarounds. The business Wellmade offers Gallery STiiCKs that can structure any poster on two edges for a fraction of what traditional framing costs - that's what I select for my three prints above the foundation.
There are also companies that printing photographs onto canvas or wood - and that don't need a frame whatsoever. If you're a shutterbug and also have some great pics you would like to hang, this might be your chance. Shutterfly offers this service, for example, and you could often find half-off discounts.
For my dining room (pictured above), which also offers high ceilings and blends right into the living room, I had two images made and opt for custom size for every single that fit the wall-space properly. Because I'm a deal-hunter, the combined pair cost less than $100 - about the price tag on getting one large-ish poster custom framed.
Choosing the right art for a large space isn't easy - but it could be done if you take the time to really plan out the thing you need. Think through the scale, type, color, framing and cost of what you want. And get creativity from the web and beyond - sites like Houzz can give you great ideas, as can home d?cor periodicals, or even just shopping at home goods stores and seeing that they have their showrooms setup.
The key is visualizing what you need before you have it and then patiently working toward finding the right skill at the right cost for your space. Don't dash things - Rome wasn't built in a day, as well as your home won't be decorated per day. But when your home is fully decorated, it will look fabulous!
