Wall Art Tips

Wall art is a fun and creative way to add some style and personality to your home.

 

Whether you are looking to add a punch of colour, showcase artwork, display photos, brighten with mirrors, or even add a terrarium, wall art is always on trend.

 

At Smitty’s, we get a lot of questions about how to use wall art and hang art. Here are some of our expert tips on making the most of wall art:

 

1. Go Big with Wall Art

Don’t be afraid of placing large artwork on your wall.

 

If you have a room with a focal point, like a sofa or a fireplace, try hanging a large, single piece of art over the centre area. The art can be anything from an original painting to a reproduction on canvas, to a large-scale printed photo.

 

If you have a large piece in another room of your home, try bringing it into a different room — sometimes simply moving your wall art around can freshen up your space.

 

2. Use Mirrors

Yes, it’s true, mirrors are considered wall art — especially with all the different shapes, styles, and designs on the market.

 

Similar to placing a large piece of art, consider hanging a large mirror behind your sofa or above your fireplace. Adding a mirror in this manner will bring light into your space and help to brighten your room.

 

3. Try Word Art

Adding word art to your walls is a fun and creative way to bring new life into your space.

 

Many of you might remember the trend of having the words “Live, Laugh, Love” in a front hall, but all kinds of words and phrases are being displayed throughout homes. You can have some relaxing words in the bedroom, some fun words in the family room, or even a famous food quote in the kitchen — it’s all up to you!

 

4. Deer Heads

Don’t worry, we’re not talking about stuffed deer heads — we’re talking about the shiny, decorative kind.

 

Yes, having a chrome or brass deer head on your wall is one of the hottest trends this year. Available in a range of styles and sizes, it might be just the final touch that your wall needs.
