Every room, no matter how simply created, must introduce an element of design. This rule applies to office room as well. Unfortunately, to some, office room is just a collection of things – piles of books in one corner, gadgets in the middle of the clutter on the table, and dust collectors on the floor. People are either too lazy or hesitant about displaying articles in their office rooms in a way meaningful to them and others. The truth is, a single piece of art well chosen and well placed can convey and communicate a lot of things. Art for the office can reflect the owners individuality and induce personality into office spaces.
Below are some tips about decorating your office with art:
1)Wall arts look best when they are positioned in relation to other elements in the room, such as windows, door, furniture, ceiling and wall color. Hence, before you get ready with the nails and hammer, create a sketch of the arts you want to hang.
2)If the office room starts with an entry hall, display photographs – may be your personal photos or that of your achievements and awards. This entry provides a doorway to your workplace and showcases your work ethic, so a group of framed pictures on a small table in many different sizes introduce its occupant.
3)Let the furniture such as tables, chest, armoires, counters and shelves be the surfaces to display your artworks. To add depth, add extra accessories next to it. For this, consider vases with flowers because most things meant for display don’t go well with art.
4)A large art on the wall can stand alone. Smaller pieces should be grouped together in order to look good. For an even more charming effect, relate figures to each other and place them accordingly.
5)All arts should be placed at eye level. This factor also depends on the height of the ceiling. If the ceiling is too high, higher positioning on the walls do not ruin the decor. The opposite is true for rooms with low ceilings.
6) Group art so that individual works are close to one another. Keep artworks away from direct sunlight as much as possible. Instead, illuminate them with ceiling mounted lights.
A clean office room with organized shelves, cabinets and other furniture generate a feeling of spaciousness, while details like photos, frames, arts and accessories provide visual interest.
