To be “caught” by the eye, living room wall art should be large enough, but you still have to pay attention to the availability of space and the size of your space. So, if the wall decoration is small, it is better to display it in the form of a group, rather than one-on-one spread across the walls of the room.

The displays arranged in group form usually have a common theme. Either type of decoration, size, and color. For laying, do not put the decorations too close, because it gives the impression a mess. Do not also hang too far, because it will lose the impression of unity.

In general, there are two kinds of orders in groups for wall hangings, namely:

1. Symmetrical
Usually used for formal interiors room. Symmetry can be obtained from a balanced laying of left-right or top-down. Can also be of similarity theme, size, or color.

2. Asymmetric
Here, the similarity is not too important. Conversely, the size or type of objects on display can be different. But in order not to see the origin of the hit, “balance with vision” should still be considered in order to remain beautiful viewed.

Ever thought of the importance of caring for wall hangings? When you love wall art and believe that your choice is able to change the appearance of the room even your home, of course, you do not think to replace it. Wall hangings need the care to be durable. For wooden frames, use a special cleaner of wood and the soft cloth. As for the gold or silver metal frame, use a glass cleaner. Every 3 – 5 years, wipe the inner glass of the frame.

Yes, there are many things to consider before deciding what kind of wall art you should choose. You can be creative and expressive with your preferred wall art because the house is a reflection of your personality, where you can make the house look more comfortable even to the person who is visiting.
