Many people think of paintings as simply decorative items. Canvases, in fact, serve many more purposes:
  • The owner's inner world is reflected in this piece.
  • The positioning of accents.
  • The ability to boost one's psychological mood.
  • You can transform even the most unassuming interior with the help of image-filled canvases. Original works of art are not required to be hung on the wall. There are plenty of well-chosen canvases with interesting subjects.

The painting is the design's finishing touch. The use of canvases to decorate walls first appeared several centuries ago. The subject matter and semantic content of the images have changed, but the primary function of the products has not.

Designer advice on how to choose a picture for your interior design.
There is no interior style that cannot accommodate a photograph. The right product is the key to a successful composition. The main parameters are the canvases' content and colour scheme.

The plot content of the picture

The semantic content of the canvas should correspond not only to the style of the room but also to its purpose. Each room is distinguished by a distinct theme.

Natural motifs, floral still lifes, modular paintings of a colourful sunset, shining stars, or mysterious love-themed plots, for example, will look great in the bedroom.

When looking for a painting for your living room, you will come across a wide range of options. Canvases of any subject can be displayed in this room.

It is preferable to "settle" images of fairy-tale heroes or animals in a child's room. If your child enjoys fiction, you can look for a drawing in this genre.

Images of delectable dishes, vegetables, fruits, coffee beans, and spices will perfectly complement the kitchen. Posters with foreign inscriptions are visually appealing.

Hallways benefit from abstraction and geometry. After a long day's work, such drawings draw your attention and cause you to become distracted.

The colour scheme

To avoid stylistic dissonance, the image should be combined with the design's main colours. You can use different shades from the same spectrum or introduce contrasting tones that are complementary to the base.

Even images with multiple colours have an accent tone. It is worthwhile to concentrate on it when attempting to transform the interior.

Different kinds of wall paintings

The term "painting" conjures up images of a picturesque product in a heavy frame. However, the range of possibilities is much broader. Let's start with the most common types of products.


Segmental canvases are another name for such canvases. The products are made up of several parts that are linked together by a common theme. The standard element count is two, three, or five. There are, however, paintings of four and six modules for sale.

There are no frames around the elements. The viewer should get the impression that the plots on the canvas flow into one another.

The use of modular decor visually expands the space. Feel free to use it in small spaces.

The poster is made of thick paper with a printed print that is enclosed in a frame with glass. The drawing can be anything from a realistic object to an image of your favourite music group. Posters serve the same purpose as paintings. Their job is to spruce up the interior and draw attention to it.

Painting in oil, watercolour, and acrylic

"Live" paintings with paints are usually framed or baguettes. The products appear luxurious in a variety of styles, including classic, modern, Provence, country, eco, and Art Deco. It is a common misconception that oil painting and watercolour cannot coexist on the same wall. If the canvases are in the same style and colour scheme, they will complement each other perfectly.

3D paintings

3D panels are three-dimensional drawings that give the impression of complete realism. This effect is achieved through the use of multi-layer image technology. Paintings in three dimensions can be hung on plain walls. They look best on white, black, yellow, or beige backgrounds. This feature is intended for modern interiors; it looks out of place in traditional ones.
