How to Choose the Right Kind of Glass Wall Art for Each Room

When it comes to wall art, simply finding something you like the look of might not be that difficult. However, knowing where a particular piece belongs in your home can be hard. Luckily, there are a few guidelines to make sure you select the right piece for a specific space. 

While art is what helps define the personality of the homeowner, individual pieces are crucial in creating a specific mood and character in each room. Some pieces will be able to function as amazing statement or inspiration pieces, while others are best used as accessories to a larger wall art arrangement. 

The Living Room 

The most exciting room to decorate is often the living room. It’s where you spend most of your time and the room your guests will visit. As such, there is a lot of pressure when it comes to choosing something perfect. If you pick the right piece, you’ll draw the gaze of everyone who enters your home and provoke conversation. 

Many of our customers choose their statement pieces from the Trevor m Hirst collection of glass art pieces, due to the high level of vibrancy and quality. 

This space is also good for larger pieces that draw in a lot of attention. However, you’ll find many examples of amazing print wall collections with several small to medium-sized pieces complementing each other to create a truly beautiful wall art collection in the living room. 

The Kitchen and Bathroom 

Don’t forget about these rooms. They’re still places where you should showcase your personality and creative flair. 

To keep things practical, lean toward smaller pieces that complement your cabinets and appliances, rather than overwhelm the space. 

Also, this is a great place for glass wall art where steam, smoke, or oil won’t damage your pieces and your prints can simply be wiped clean. 

For smaller spaces, consider multiple small print sets, such as pairs or triplets. They can feature similar images or be completely abstract from one another. 

The Bedroom 

Despite what you might think, the bedroom isn't always the place for traditional statement pieces. As the bedroom is a retreat, it should reflect the kind of mood you want to create in the evenings and mornings. 

You may still want boldness, but just be careful you don't end up with something that dominates the room too much. 

We recommend choosing more calm colour palettes and if you like photography or landscapes, consider pieces that are desaturated rather than “popping” with bright colour. 

Your Home Office 

We all do so much work from our homes these days that personalising your space with the right prints or wall art is a way to keep you motivated and zen throughout the day. Your company office might be completely bare of adornment, but there’s no need for you to do the same in your private working space.  

Maps, photos from past trips, portraits of people, or even certificates all have a place in your office, but there’s no reason you can't feature a great abstract glass wall art piece from the Traver M Hirst collection. Just try not to get too distracted by it when trying to work!  

How to Find the Best Art For Your Home 

Don’t rush in and try to find inspiration before you start buying pieces. Look at some collections and libraries like our online store at Culzean Gifts, or flick through magazines for wall art arrangements that match your own interior design preferences.
