When it comes to decorating your homes in sync with your taste and style there are many ways to spruce up your home.

Artwork has the ability to give each room in your house the charm that it deserves. Painting are no longer limited to just your living room. They can be added to any room in your house, from kitchens to even your bathrooms. Here are a few tip on how to select artwork for each and every room in your house.

Living Room
While it can be fun to decorate this room with artwork, it can become a bit intimidating too. The moment a guests enter your house, the first room they see is the living room and hence this is place is where they will spend most of their time. Choose artwork based on the kind of vibe you would like to set for the room.Designate a particular wall for the art. Artwork doesn’t have to be only on canvas or paper, it can take other forms as well.

Bedroom Room
When you’re tired after a long day at work, you always tend to retreat to your bedrooms to rest. The artwork that is chosen for this should reflect all things that are calm, soothing and serene. They should be put up directly above the bed or on the wall apposite the bed. Abstract art in soothing pastel colours will be your best bet. Photography, landscapes and even saturated picture to work well.

Kitchen
One wouldn’t think of placing artwork in the kitchen at all. Kitchens are often referred to as the ‘heart of the home’ and this is a place where we spend most of our time. Artwork can find its home on your counter tops or above your cabinets. Keep them small and concise. Choose to print out trending quotes on food that you find on social media.

Bathrooms
This is another room that we tend to ignore when selecting artwork. Keep the vibe of your bathroom in mind while choosing artwork. For example, powder rooms can have bright and fun paintings while a master bath can have serene ones. Another way to up your artwork game in the bathroom is by lining up two of the same kind of painting in opposite directions.
