Original Medium (21 to 39 inch) Paintings

Decorating with medium-sized paintings can seem a daunting and challenging task, but when you choose the perfect painting and your room instantly brightened, the work will be worth it! Determine how much space you have! The size of the painting you should buy depends entirely on how much open space you have in your room. If you have a very large, bare wall, you will want to cover between 2/3 to 3/4 of the open area with paintings. (Be sure to work around any furniture that may take up space on the wall.) If you have a smaller space, such as a section of wall between two windows, or a corridor wall with no obstructing furniture, then you have a little more wiggle room. It is recommended that you choose medium-sized paintings between 24-36 inches in diameter, depending on the size of your wall space.

DECORATING WITH MEDIUM SIZED PAINTINGS

Follow these 3 simple steps to make your journey to find the perfect medium-sized paintings as painless as possible:

1. Measure, measure, measure! Spacing is everything. If your artwork appears too cramped, it will look awkward and may seem to minimize the size of your space. A good rule of thumb is to measure the width of your artwork and divide that width into eighths. 3/8 of the total width is the amount of space that should remain around the area of your artwork on all sides. No obstructing furniture, windows, other pieces of art, or the edges of the wall, floor, or ceiling should be in that 3/8 of space. That means your artwork itself should take no more than 4/7 of the space where you intend to hang it. Since that’s not a very easy fraction to remember, use this conversion trick: measure your wall space in inches. Then multiply that total number by .57 (which is the decimal version of 4/7). Then you will know exactly how large your painting can be in order to perfectly fit that space. For example, if your desired wall space is 36 inches total, then you will want to purchase a painting that is no larger than 20-21 inches wide.

2. Time for a shopping spree! This is the fun part! Now that you know how large your painting can be, write down your measurements and get to shopping! Remember to choose a piece that reflects your personality and fits the theme of your room. For ideas, try looking at our online art gallery. GalleryToday offers medium-sized paintings in a variety of themes and color palettes, so you can find the artwork that is perfect for you!

3. Now start hanging! You may be excited to hang your new painting on the wall as soon as possible, but keep in mind that your artwork should always be around eye-level (on average, that is 60-65 inches from the floor). The only exception to this rule is in rooms which are made for sitting, such as the dining room or the living room. In these rooms, you will want to hang your art a bit lower to compensate, but always remember to keep the bottom of your painting at least 6-12 inches over the top of any obstructing furniture.
