There is a saying that “Art is the most important part of any room. Nothing is finished without art”. For home renovators, you should never overlook the power of art as it is not just a final touch, it is the element that will define the personality of your home.

If you want to entice the attention of the visitors in a matter of seconds when entering your home, then a focal point is something you can never overlook. A strong focal point will instantly draw the eye into the space and create a wow effect. When it comes down to creating a focal point, the easiest and most effective method is to choose a great piece of wall art. Art as a focal point that can inject personality into the interior design in a way that no other fixtures can, there is flexibility to be bold without any fear as it’s not a permanent fixture and can be changed at any time. Choosing interesting pieces can inspire your guests to talk about the art and allow for intimate conversation about the piece and about art interests which can help you get to know them better.
When the art is hanging on the wall, the colours, textures, lines and shapes will instantly bring your room to life. When you choose art, it is important to consider the size and proportion of the piece. An artwork too small is likely to look weak and isolated, while an oversize artwork can make the space too cluttered and make your room look small and restrained. Make sure you make measurements before choosing your favourite art pieces for your lovely home.
Most people will leave art as the final touch to their home design and renovation. However, if you think outside of the box and find the perfect wall art first before anything else, you can be inspired by it to help you set the colour palette for the design and styling. Once you find the right artwork that you absolutely love, you can use that as the base of your room’s colour palette. Picking up a basic shade from the art as the dominant colour, and another two to three colours as the secondary and accent colour. You can use these colours for choosing your wall paintings, kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures, and they are sure to match each other! The only other thing one needs to consider is the ratio of these colours.
Texture in a design can be likened to an artist’s brush stroke on a painting. The texture of all surfaces and finishes in a space can be chosen carefully to create another dimension of the design. When you need some extra texture for your room, wall art is the best and most flexible choice. You can not only choose from a watercolour painting or oil painting that will give you visual texture, but also pick up a wall sculpture or shadow boxes that will add much more depth to the room. The frame of the artwork will also change the atmosphere of your room. A natural wooden frame will match perfectly with a timber bathroom vanity, while a metal frame will suit a sleeker modern home design. If you prefer the kind of eclectic or avant-garde style, a mixture of traditional arts and trending digital arts can be a good choice that will be sure to make your room stand out.
This photo shows a bathroom renovation project from one of our customers in Dandenong. When entering the bathroom, the two art pieces hanging on the tile wall instantly draw the attention of the eyes of the visitors. The pink and yellow colour and timber frame act as second colours that add an extra layer of warmth and coziness to this clean white bathroom. When you see the frames, their slightly rough texture contrast well with the gloss marble tiles that tone down the sleekness of the design while creating an intimate atmosphere in the space. The artwork creates a wow effect and increases the interest in the overall design, they nailed it in using artworks to level up the bathroom renovation project!
