If the artwork is too small, it is hardly seen and if the artwork is too big, it can make it look out of place thus leaving the room look smaller.

Select the one that harmonizes with the color of the room: Select an artwork that is bolder than the wall color, which can highlight both your artwork and wall. Do not select a painting that is exactly the same color as the wall. This can give your room a dull look. Artwork should be eye-catching, and it can be done only by proper selection. Otherwise, it will ruin the look of the interiors. When choosing an Artwork, see that it should give a beautiful and attractive look to your home.

Choose a painting that matches the style of the room: An artwork that matches the style of the room can be selected.

Similarly, if you have glass table in dinning area, you can place glass painting on the wall to match the style.

Alter your room, if the painting doesn’t suit: If already purchased an artwork for a particular area and it is not looking that great so place it in another room. If you are not finding a place for the artwork where it looks best, alter your room by making some changes. For instance, if your wall is covered with wall papers remove them and give a fresh coat of paint to make your artwork hang on the wall thereby making you enjoy the painting you wanted.

Consider above points for selecting art work for your home. Bear in mind that there should be enough lighting to display your artwork. Place accent lights to showcase your paintings on wall, and to enhance the overall look of your home.
