How to Choose Art for Your Home

Choosing artwork for Eagle ID new homes can be a fun adventure. You have a blank canvas to decorate any way you please. But sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. Do you just buy what appeals to you in the moment, or should you begin with an overall theme?

Although there’s no right or wrong way to select art for your home, a few guidelines can make the process easier.

Wall Art

This is what most people think of when they hear the word “art.” Paintings, posters and photographs add interest to blank walls and provide focal points in a room. In most cases it’s best to go with whatever appeals to you, since you’ll have to look at it every day. Choose something that inspires you or sets a mood for the room. Wall art can establish your color scheme or serve as a pop of contrasting hues.

Sculptural Art

Whether it’s a realistic figurine or an abstract piece, sculptural art is more about shape and form than color. Consider the size of the sculpture relative to the space. A very large, dramatic sculpture is best for spacious rooms with high ceilings. Smaller pieces can be tucked into a nook or placed on the fireplace mantel.

Personal Art

Truly personalize your home with artwork made by you and your family. A fun way to do this is to designate a space to be your “revolving gallery.” Create a grouping of photos, drawings or finger paintings in coordinating frames. When new pieces are ready, swap them into the mix. That way your display is always fresh and interesting.

You’ll have plenty of space to display your art when you buy a new home from Brighton Homes. Browse our photo gallery to get ideas for adding wall art and sculptures to our home designs. We offer a variety of floor plans and architectural styles to choose from.
