Select artwork that has versatile scope like most abstract art

Abstract paintings can fit into any setting because of the multiple ways they can be interpreted. They also are able to add a touch of modernity to the space.

Stay within a budget

This is a common sense approach to purchasing art for the space you are working on. Most people buy art as the last finishing detail to a room and would have sorted out the paints, furniture and furnishings and even lighting before deciding on the art to buy. It is good to have an idea of what the prices of different artworks on the market are from the outset and then plan for their acquisition.

Buy large pieces

Large works make a greater impact in a space. By large works, we mean works that are at least 36 inches by 36 inches or more in size. So, for spaces where creating prominent or pre-eminent effect is your goal, rather go for large works.

Use small pieces to create intimate spaces

Sometimes, you are not interested in making an impact. Rather, you are keen on creating coziness and comfort. Small pieces grouped together achieve this easily.

Don't be overly concerned with matching colors

Instead look for works that complement each other.

Buy collections

Works that can be grouped together can make a greater impact.
