  /  Blog   /  How big must the art be to have visual impact?

Well-placed art anchors a space and adds visual interest.

So what size art works best?

“What would you recommend for an 8-foot wall?” is a question we often get asked.

Of course there is no one-size- fits- all answer.

But a rule of thumb (or wall…. ) is that the art should take up at least 1/3 of the wall it is placed on. Go ahead…….do the math.

When the colors are strong and dominant, a smaller piece can achieve that punch.

If a wall has rich texture, dark paint, or architectural work, then a smaller-scale piece will often do the trick.

When the colors blend with the décor a larger scale piece will be needed for drama and visual attention.

The height of the piece can also affect the perception of the viewer. Hang your art at eye level to catch the viewer’s gaze and deck the wall visually.

Still unsure??

Frame the wall with painter’s tape and stand back to see how the dimensions play into the space.

Don’t be afraid to change things up.

Using the services of Art Professionals or Designers who have done this many times over will save you lots of time and effort and maximize your arts impact.
