Important tips when buying a tablou
The use of modern paintings in interior design not only creates calm and beautifies the environment, but it also reflects the homeowner's unique artistic taste. The following guidelines will help you select the best paintings for your home decor.
If the decoration of your home is such that the number of furniture and appliances are small and spaced far apart, in this case, placing a modern painting on the wall between them effectively fills the perspective.
The wall above the sofa is a great place to hang classic and modern paintings. When selecting a painting, keep in mind that the size of the painting should not be larger than the size of the sofa. In general, the ideal size for a decorative painting is roughly two-thirds the size of a sofa or slightly larger.
Wall characteristics: The right painting for each wall should be chosen based on its dimensions or even the material of the wall. Vertical paintings are preferable for high and rectangular walls. Horizontal paintings work best on short and long walls, such as corridor walls. In general, the paintings should be able to occupy at least two-thirds and no more than three-quarters of the walls after installation.
If the wall is made of stone or brick, using paintings with a predominant color of brown or gray can help to create a harmonious environment.
Painting frame: When selecting a frame for paintings and tableau rugs, it is critical to remember that classic and heavy frames with crowded and aristocratic decorations should not be used for modern works. For instance, light, less-decorated frames, preferably in a single, simple color, are ideal for abstract paintings.
Color combination of paintings:Color is used differently depending on the style and type of painting, as we all know. For example, in abstract paintings, the use of multiple colors, as well as the bold use of sharp and concentrated colors, is very common. However, in terms of color scheme or even subject matter, your painting should be able to blend in with other home furnishings. A pale yellow in the painting and a small vase on the table can sometimes achieve this color match.
