How to find the right wall decor
When you’re looking to decorate your home, there are so many choices you can make. Wall art is a great way to add character and personality to any space. It can be as simple as adding some color with a framed poster, or it can be something more elaborate like installing a mural on an entire wall—there are plenty of options out there! There are also lots of things to keep in mind when choosing wall decor that will help ensure your new piece looks great once it’s up on the wall. So here's how we're going to tackle this big project:
Consider the style of your room
The first step in choosing wall decor is to consider the style of your room. Whether you live in an apartment or a house, you'll want to make sure that any art or decor items fit with the overall look and feel of the space. For example, if you have wood floors and hardwood furniture with simple lines, it might not be wise to choose something colorful and ornate as your main wall decor--but if those are exactly what catches your eye at first glance (and they're within budget), then go ahead!
Your personality should also play into how much thought goes into this decision: Are you a minimalist? Do bright colors energize or overwhelm? Are there certain themes that resonate strongly with who we are as individuals? The answers may seem obvious but it's important not only because they will help guide us toward our perfect choice but also because they'll allow us to refine our search so we aren't wasting time looking at things that simply don't work for us personally--or worse yet, losing sleep over something we could never afford anyway!
Measure the wall space. Measure the length, width and height of your room in order to get an idea of how much space you have to work with.
How to measure for a gallery wall. If you are planning on hanging multiple pieces of art, be sure that each piece has enough room between them so that they don't overlap or look crowded together. You can also use this method when creating collages or mixed media projects like photo albums or scrapbooks where multiple photos need to fit together nicely on one page without overlapping too much (or at all).
What if I have sloped ceilings? When measuring for an angled ceiling like this one above--which can make it difficult to get accurate measurements--it's helpful if all three sides are equal distances apart from one another so they line up neatly when calculating diagonal lengths across them (see diagram below).
Think about how much light you get in your space
You may not realize it, but the amount of light in your space can have a huge effect on how well you see your wall decor. If you live in an apartment or home with low lighting, dark colors will make it harder for observers to see the details of what's on your walls--and that's no fun for anyone! On the flip side, if your space receives lots of natural light from windows or skylights (or even just overhead lights), brighter colors might be better suited to showcase what's hanging around.

Do you have time to maintain wall decor?
Do you have time to maintain wall decor?
Some types of wall decor require more maintenance than others. For example, if you have a large collection of paintings and prints, it's important to dust them regularly to prevent damage from dirt and grime buildup. This can be time-consuming if you have many pieces in your home or office space. If this is the case for you, consider hanging artwork with glass panels so that they can be easily cleaned with a cloth or duster without having to remove them from their frames each time they need cleaning (and put them back on again). This will save both time and effort!
Get inspired by paint
Paint is one of the easiest ways to add color and style to your space. You can use it on furniture, accessories, or even the walls!
You don't need to be an artist--just grab some paint samples from your local hardware store and take them home with you. If there's a particular shade that catches your eye but doesn't seem like it would work in your space (for example: bright blue), try painting a small portion of wall or furniture in that color before committing whole-heartedly.
Try something new.
There are a lot of ways to decorate your home, but if you're looking for something new and exciting, try something different. If you're not sure where to start, it's best to be open-minded. You might be surprised by what works best in your space--and how much fun choosing wall art can be!
If at first you don't succeed...don't give up! Try again another day with something else on the wall (or even off). Remember: mistakes are part of the learning process--and they make us stronger designers in the end!
You can make any space feel like home with the right wall decor.
Wall decor is a great way to personalize your space, and it can help you create an inviting space in your home. If you're looking for wall decor ideas, here are some tips:
Choose wall decor that matches your style. Wall art can be used to express who you are as an individual or family, so it's important to choose pieces that reflect how much time and effort has been put into creating that aesthetic. If all of the furniture in the room has been handmade by hand (or at least looks like it), then consider getting a piece of artwork made by hand as well; otherwise, something mass-produced might not fit as well with the rest of your décor scheme!
Use wall art to help create an inviting environment for guests visiting over long periods of time such as overnight stays or extended weekend stays when having guests over isn't usual practice but still happens occasionally enough that having extra blankets lying around isn't uncommon either (like Christmas). This way everyone feels comfortable staying at each other's houses without feeling weird about being there because they'll have something familiar along with them wherever they go--even though only one person might actually notice its presence since most people aren't paying attention anyway...
