Just like any other aspect of life, selection of paints requires a critical thought and analysis for one to choose the best painting. Remember, what seems nice to you might irritate someone else. The most important thing is to ensure that the painting gives you comfort in your home.
So, what do people consider while selecting paints ?
For one, people go for the material used to create the painting. While considering material, one considering material, one considers both the material of the painting and the type of paint used. You may find two paints which may seen identical, but have different preferences due to the material. If you may note, the difference in material also results in a difference in pricing.
Another factor that affects the one's preferences, or rather taste, is the type of their home. It is common to find large paintings in homes of people who have bought their houses. In most cases, such people do not look forward to altering the arrangement of their houses. They have a freedom to select any size of the painting and place it anywhere they want in their homes. On the other hand, people with rental rarely go for large paintings. As much as they stay in a specific house for a long period, they may not want to burden themselves with a luggage. Note that this is a preference. You can walk into someone's rental house and find a large painting. There is no problem at all in doing so.
The last crucial factor people consider while selecting a painting is the color combination. One must ensure that whichever color you choose , they do not need to clash and spoil the mood. I am sure that you have been told this several times; colors create a mood for a given room. Never assume that artists will paint your preferred color combination, as they mostly go for inspiration.
As much as a painting may speak to you, you need to ensure that it will fit in the space you want to put it. Never let people dictate the kind of pieces you put in your space. Just ensure that you are comfortable, and more importantly, you prioritize your taste.
