Art has the power to transform your home from bland to elegant. However, this ability relies on picking the right piece and placing it in the right location. This is why so many shy away from buying art. So, to demystify this process, we are sharing some home stager strategies for picking and placing the art right.
Tip #1: Know what you like. – This is the one tip out of place with home stagers. We are trying to help you sell your home. So, we are looking at art that has the broadest appeal. When decorating your house, the art should reflect your personality and taste.
Tip #2: Create a budget. – Regardless, a budget is just a guide. Fine art can become pricey quickly. So, don’t become surprised if you spend a little more than expected. If not, you will end up regretting the piece you did not buy.
Tip #3: Do some research. – It is a good idea to attend several art auctions before diving in. It is important to get the feel and understand the pace. You may find yourself disappointed if you don’t take this step.
Tip #4: Consider being visually interesting. – Aside from personal taste, think about using more traditional artwork in contemporary designed spaces and more modern pieces in classically designed rooms.
Tip #5: Contrast and compliment the space. – There is always a temptation to match. However, this can cause your artwork to become lost in the room. Alternatively, a contrasting piece will pop and stand out.
Tip #6: Mix and match your art. – A great way to create a unique look is to mix and match periods and styles. It is even a good aide to pair more expensive artwork with more budget-friendly pieces. Doing this makes the art appear collected over time, telling the story of your journey.
Tip #7: Spend extra for custom framing, museum glass, and fabric mats. – These are important components that will protect your investment. Additionally, it adds a distinguished elegance to your artwork.
