Thinking of breathing a new life into your dull and empty wall? Well, there’s no better way to do it but to go big or go home with oversized wall arts. These pieces can certainly perk up a huge empty wall and bring a whole new vibe to the space.
While doing this yourself can be pretty intimidating, especially if you don’t have any experience in art and designing, we believe that you can pull it off.
Read some of the tips that we laid out below to help you get started. Make sure to follow your creative instinct and learn along the way!
Work on a sizeable empty wall space
The first thing you must do is to check whether there’s a wall in your house that’s large enough to accommodate the oversized wall art. Since you’re dealing with large pieces of art, choosing a small wall space is a big no-no.
We recommend checking your entryways, accent walls above your bed or the sofa, or the areas between the windows.
If there are existing floating shelves and other accessories in the spaces we just mentioned, you might need to either reorganize or take them down. That is if you really want to decorate the room with a piece of wall art.
Look for oversized arts that will make a statement
By that, we mean wall arts that will draw you in almost instantly. It’s always a great idea to take advantage of the size of large pieces and make them the focal point of a wall.
And to do that, you have to choose large wall prints that will invite your eyes to marvel at the artwork. Great examples of these are geometric optical illusions, nature prints, and classic paintings.
Break up a single piece to create layers
If you’re working on a truly large wall and you’re afraid that the oversized art you bought will still feel underwhelming, there’s a workaround on that.
You can get creative by breaking up the large piece into two or three frames then spreading them across the wall. Doing this will certainly add a different dynamic to your wall display.
This technique works really well on abstract wall prints.
Go bold by going three-dimensional
Oversized art doesn’t always mean paintings and art prints. Using three-dimensional panels as a centrepiece is also a great way to perk up your boring wall.
Texture and depth certainly add an artistic touch to a room with a neutral colour scheme. Three-dimensional art can also work well when placed against a stylish backdrop.
Rearrange the room around the art
Perking up a wall with oversized art doesn’t end once you’ve fixed the piece onto the wall. You still need to do a little bit of retouching to make the room more cohesive.
Keep in mind that oversized arts must be considered like a feature or accent walls. They often dictate the colour palette of the whole room.
Make sure that the accessories you’re placing in the space will work really well with the colours of your oversized art and other major pieces in your room.
Rearranging the placement of the furniture like the sofa, cabinet, and side tables, can also further enhance the oversized art and the whole vibe of the space.
These are only some tips that we can give you if you’re planning to redesign your space with some oversized wall art. Follow these steps but also keep in mind that you can always think outside the box and do what works really well for you. After all, it’s your room that you’re perking up!
