Now that you are familiar with the types of wall art, and the different applications it can have in your home space, its time to explore the practical elements of it, including how you can make your own, where is the best place to buy it, and how to effectively use your available space to hang it.

How To Make Wall Art

Making wall art can be as difficult, or as easy as you want. What’s important is having a sense of style. You could go for a project as simple as framing a good-looking wallpaper, or as complex as creating your own 3D metal wall art piece. Click here to see our detailed guide on how to make wall art.

How to Hang Wall Art

  • Find how far apart the nail would be from the top of your wall art piece. Usually, you’ll put the nail on the frame or under a hanging wire. Write this distance down on a sheet of paper.
  • Take a marker, and mark a height of 1.5m plus whatever distance you wrote in the step above. This will make it so that the piece hangs at eye-level of most people.
  • Hang the piece by putting in 1-2 nails to support it.
  • Use a level or level app to make sure that the wall art is hung evenly. Move it from side to side until it is. To read our detailed guide on the best way to hang wall art, click here.

How to Choose Wall Art

  • Think about size—You don’t want an oversized piece of wall art in your bathroom, and your living room is probably better off with a few large pieces than a cluster of small ones.
  • Match colours—Think about the colours you use around the room, make sure that the wall art fits the colour scheme.
  • Style—In a minimalist room, don’t go for a renaissance-style painting for wall art. Make sure that the wall art you put fits the general feel you want out of the room.
  • Location—You don’t want to hang your wall art just anywhere. You want it to be visible, but not so visible that it would take attention away whenever you look in its direction. Check out our detailed blog here on how to choose wall art.

How to Find Best-Selling Wall Art

There’s a lot of sources you can get wall art from, ranging from local shops to Etsy, and retail giants like Amazon.

You’ll generally want to avoid massive retailers because they tend to sell cookie-cutter wall art. If you’re purchasing art, you want it to feel special, you don’t want to know that there are 20 people in your street with the same piece.

On the other hand, buying from smaller retailers and Etsy can ensure that you’re getting a more unique piece, and usually for a lower price as well! See tips on how to find best selling wall art here.
