Choosing Art for your Hallway
Even in the cosiest of homes, the front hallway provides a first impression and sets the tone for your entire living space. It's the welcome mat to your world, and giving it attention and personality can make a world of difference. However, re-vamping a space can be daunting and sometimes it can be hard to know where to begin.
With this in mind, we thought it would be handy to put together some tips regarding choosing the perfect wall art, to focus your front hallway decor ideas in the right direction.
Here, we present five essential tips to bear in mind and ensure your hallway reaches its full potential:
Size Matters: Consider the dimensions of your hallway. For narrow spaces, opt for a series of smaller artworks, creating a dynamic gallery effect. In wider hallways, a single large piece can anchor the space beautifully.
Balance and Proportion: Ensure the artwork's size complements the hallway's scale. A piece too small might get lost, while an oversized one can overwhelm.
Invest or Rotate: Decide whether you want a timeless, investment-worthy original masterpiece or if you prefer to switch out artworks with changing decor. High-quality, timeless giclée prints can be a striking focal point for years, while more economical digital art print options allow for frequent updates.
Gallery Lighting: Install proper lighting to accentuate your art. Track lighting or wall-mounted fixtures can create a dramatic spotlight effect, adding depth and allure.
Eye-Level Placement: Hang your artwork at eye level for the best viewing experience. Typically, this means the centre of the artwork should be around 57-60 inches or 1.5 metres from the floor.
In our Portrush Art Gallery and on our website we have a range of artworks to suit various styles and budgets including; original statement paintings, fine art giclée prints and more economical digital art prints.
