TIPS FOR CHOOSING AND DISPLAYING

Choosing the Right Art for Your Dining Room

1. Reflect Your Style

The art you choose should reflect your personal style and complement the overall decor of your dining room. Consider the existing color scheme, furniture style, and general theme of the room.

  • Modern and Contemporary: Opt for abstract pieces, bold colors, or minimalist designs.
  • Traditional: Choose classic paintings, landscapes, or still lifes.
  • Eclectic: Mix various styles and mediums to create a unique and dynamic look.

2. Consider the Size and Scale

The size and scale of the art pieces should be proportional to the dining room and the wall space available.

  • Large Spaces: A single large piece or a gallery wall can make a bold statement.
  • Small Spaces: Smaller pieces or a series of small artworks can add interest without overwhelming the room.

3. Coordinate Colors

Select art that complements or contrasts with the dining room’s color palette. Artwork can either blend with the existing colors for a harmonious look or introduce new hues to create a striking contrast.

  • Complementary Colors: Choose art that matches the room’s color scheme for a cohesive appearance.
  • Contrasting Colors: Use art to introduce pops of color and create visual interest.

Displaying Art in Your Dining Room

INCORPORATING ART IN YOUR DINING ROOM: TIPS FOR CHOOSING AND DISPLAYING

Display artwork also helps achieve cohesion in open-space dining areas

1. Create a Focal Point

Art can serve as the focal point of your dining room. Position it in a place where it naturally draws attention, such as above a buffet, sideboard, or dining table.

2. Use Proper Lighting

Good lighting can enhance the impact of your art. Consider the following lighting options:

  • Track Lighting: Adjustable track lighting can be directed towards the artwork to highlight it.
  • Wall Sconces: These can provide focused lighting and add a decorative element.
  • Picture Lights: Mounted directly above or on the frame, picture lights can provide even illumination.

3. Consider the Height

Hang art at eye level for optimal viewing. A general rule of thumb is to position the center of the artwork about 57-60 inches from the floor. If hanging art above furniture, ensure there’s enough space between the furniture and the artwork.

4. Group Art Pieces

If you have multiple pieces, grouping them can create a cohesive and impactful display. Here are a few tips:

  • Symmetrical Arrangement: Creates a balanced and formal look.
  • Asymmetrical Arrangement: Offers a more casual and dynamic feel.
  • Gallery Wall: A collection of different sizes and styles can create an eclectic and personalized display.

5. Use Shelves and Ledges

Installing shelves or picture ledges allows for easy display and rearrangement of art. This is ideal for those who like to change their decor frequently.

  • Staggered Shelves: Different heights can add visual interest.
  • Uniform Shelves: Provides a clean and organized look.

Traditional paintings and prints are versatile and come in various styles and sizes. They can be framed to match your dining room decor and are easy to hang.

2. Sculptures and 3D Art

Sculptures and three-dimensional art pieces can add texture and depth to your dining room. Place them on a sideboard, buffet, or use pedestal stands.

3. Mixed Media and Textiles

Consider mixed media art or textile pieces, such as tapestries or woven wall hangings, to introduce different textures and materials into your space for better incorporating art in your dining room.
