When bringing your artwork home, naturally you want to hang it straight up and show it off.

Think about why you bought it and what you wanted to achieve with it. See our post about How To Choose Your Perfect Piece Of Art

Most likely, you will already have a space in mind where you want to put your new piece of art. Nevertheless, you should always stay open minded and look at it from different angles – do you still think it is the perfect place? Or does it seem a little bit off now that you have it at home? If you feel like there is an improvement to be made, do not hesitate to try out different places in the room. Often it can help to leave the room and do something else before coming back to it. This will help you to gain a feeling for the space with the piece of art in it and give you a better idea of where the perfect spot for your new wall art might be.

Proper lightning and decorations around the artwork can have a huge impact on how you feel about it and how the room looks. Consider styling your new piece in different ways by adding framing, displaying other pictures with it that could complement your new look and create a whole collection or perhaps you can place some ornaments around it to make the room look and feel like you originally envisioned it.

When choosing the perfect spot for your new favourite piece, listen to your gut – what feels good? What feels right? Trusted friends and family are often able to help the process and it is valuable to consider their recommendations. Nevertheless, in the end it is your home that needs to suit your needs and feelings.
