Everything You Must Know before Buying a Wall Hanging Art in My Area

Mark Carrara Art provides wall hanging art to anyone in my area, in the U.S., and even overseas who needs to add décor in their home or office. Sometimes people struggle in selecting the right wall hanging art for their home because they just don’t know what would look best hanging on their wall. Before buying wall hanging art, there are several factors that you can consider to get the best out of your investment.

Size matters


One of the essential things that you need to know when buying abstract art in my area is that size of the abstract art piece matters. A general rule of thumb is to cover 45% to 75% of the linear wall space with art. For example, on a ten foot long wall you would want artwork that covers between 48 ” to 90” or so of that wall width. You can do that with one piece of art that is 48” to 90” wide or multiple pieces that add up to about that width. If your not sure of the size cut out a piece of cardboard the size of the painting your thinking about buying and tack it up on the wall. It might help you get a better sense of scale and whether or not you like it.

The height of the artwork depends on your ceiling height and the height of any furniture that is set against the wall. So don’t forget that. Typically the bottom of a piece of artwork hung above a sofa or chair would be about 12” above the back of the sofa or chair.


Choosing the color that complements your home is key


Another thing need to consider is the color of the abstract art that you want to buy. When people in my area come to me looking for a piece of abstract art color is often one of the first considerations we talk about. You want to select the color that will complement your home or room décor. However, you should be open to mix and match since color can also bring a lot of life to a room.
