How to choose the right size wall decor?
This is an important question after choosing the type and design of the wall decor. After all, the decor design can still be chosen at the call of the heart and intuition, and to choose the size of wood wall art, you need a cold calculation. If you choose the wrong size, it may be too big for one room and too small for another. Or after the purchase, when you apply real decor to the wall - it seems that the room immediately halved or looks awkward.

To prevent this from happening, we will give you the main rules that will help you correctly decorate the walls and choose a picture with a large-scale room:
1. According to all the canons of design, in order not to look like a huge part or, on the contrary, a patch on the wall, wall art should occupy 2/3 of the piece of furniture it is above. For example: if the sofa is 100 inches (2.5 meters) wide, then the wall art should be approximately 64-80 inches (1.6 - 2.0 meters). If the dining area (table and chairs) is 80 inches (2 meters) wide, it is better to choose a picture of about 56-64 inches (1.4-1.6 meters) accordingly. Perhaps your option is a small table 30 inches (0.7 meters). Then we recommend choosing a small picture of 20 inches (50 centimeters).
2. To hang wood wall art on an empty wall, you need to consider not only the size of the wall, but also the room as a whole. The larger the area of the room, the more you can afford a picture. The decor should be placed on the wall so that its center is at eye level. On average, this distance from floor level is 65 inches (165 cm). A large part in a small room visually expands it.
3. Horizontal wall art is better for long wall, and vertical wall art is better for high wall. Large pieces require the plane of a large area wall, while small pieces will look good on a small area wall. Also, pieces arranged vertically make the ceiling visually higher. It is immediately clear that this is not a suitable story for small rooms with high ceilings, otherwise the room will turn into a "well".
4. The recommended distance between the wall art and the approximate viewpoint should be twice the height of the wall art. In other words, if at the selected height for placing the wall there is room for a meter-high image, then you should have at least 2 meters of "reserve" from which it is convenient to view the image.
5. Consistency with other decor elements. Do not forget to take into account the colors, textures and styles of your interior when you choose wall decor. It should be harmoniously combined with other decor elements in the room.

And now 2 life hacks from us:
1. Try sticking a square on the wall with masking tape or cardboard boxes or just cardboard. Measure it and feel free to order wall decor.
2. Send us a photo of the wall and we will visualize the wood wall art for you. It's much easier and more convenient. Plus, you can immediately assess whether the design of the wall decor suits you.
