How to arrange wall decorations in the living room

So, if in the previous point we discussed tips for choosing the decorations, this time we will explain several ways to arrange the decorations of your choice, so that the living room can look more attractive.
  • Determine the center of attention
    Choose one or two wall decorations that can be the center of attention in your living room. This could be a large family photo, a large painting, a large mirror, or another work of art that attracts attention.
  • Consider size and proportion
    Make sure the wall decoration you choose matches the size of your living room. Decorations that are too large or too small can disturb the harmony of the room so that the room does not look aesthetically pleasing.
  • Create various works of art
    If you have several works of art or photos that you want to display, create an art gallery on the living room wall. Choose a neat pattern or arrangement, for example a grid or spiral, to create an attractive appearance on the wall.
  • Pay attention to the installation height
    Ideally, wall decorations are installed at the eye level of an average adult, which is around 145-150 cm from the floor. However, this can be adjusted depending on the size and height of the room and the surrounding furniture.
  • Combine different media and forms
    You can combine various types of wall decorations, such as paintings, photography and three-dimensional artwork. Mix shapes and textures to add visual dimension to the wall to make it look more interesting.
  • Use a suitable frame
    If you are using a frame for a painting or photo, choose a frame that fits the style and theme of your room. Uniform frames or frames in contrasting colors can provide a different look.
  • Personalize with personal items
    Don't hesitate to display personal items such as children's paintings, crafts, or family heirlooms. Not only do these items have sentimental value, but they can also make unique wall decorations.
  • Ensure proper lighting
    You can install a wall lamp or hanging lamp that can provide sufficient lighting and suit the atmosphere you want. Choose lamps whose light intensity can be adjusted to create different atmospheres.
  • Experiment with patterns and colors
    If your room has neutral walls, you can use wall hangings to introduce patterns and color into the room. For example, choose artwork with bright colors or interesting patterns.
Remember, living room wall decorations should reflect the personality and tastes of the owner. Try different ideas and experiments to find the decoration combination that best suits your living room. So, you can feel happy and comfortable every time you see and use the room.

Lastly, the most important thing is to trust your creative instincts and have fun in the process. Decorating is a great way to express yourself and make your living room more homely and inviting.
