7 Tips To Turn Your House Into A Museum Quality Gallery

Ready to transform your boring home decor into an amazing quality gallery that you will be proud to show off to your friends.

Start By Browsing Galleries Looking For Ideas

We suggest starting by gathering ideas for how you want your at-home gallery display to look. Throw yourself into the art world and visit local art galleries, art museums, and even online images to gather inspiration. Start taking note of things that you like the most, whether it’s color schemes or certain patterns - even certain eras! Whatever brings you joy, lean into that.

Besides just subject matter, we encourage you to look at the design of the galleries you’re looking at. Likely you’ll see lots of blank spaces to help draw attention to the art piece itself, and you won’t see clashing paint colors or crazy furniture. Think about how they light up each piece and arrange the paintings or photographs. You’ll be able to incorporate these elements in your own home gallery.

What’s Your Art Style?

The next step is to start thinking about your favorite art styles. What are you attracted to the most? The beauty of an at home museum quality gallery is that you don’t have to just choose one. Dedicate your living room to abstract art while your bedroom and dining room pay tribute to traditional oil paintings. Once you start researching different art styles, you’ll resonate with some more than others and chances are you’ll start to fill your home with the pieces you like the most.

At the end of the day, just fill your home or office with artwork that speaks to you. Art should inspire certain feelings, and we want your home to be a relaxing, inviting, and even invigorating space. You want to find the balance of showing off your home to others while still having peace when you’re alone in your space.

Order Replications of Canvas Art Prints Or Mix and Match 

When it comes to time to actually order artwork, we don’t think you should worry about owning original artwork. Though we always think supporting local artwork is a great idea, not everyone has millions to purchase originals from famous artists.

However, Canvas Factory makes it easy to order reproductions of your favorite artwork. High quality digital prints are affordable and allows you to get multiple custom canvas prints without breaking the bank. You’ll still get that artistic feel of painted images when you order on canvas, without the high costs of actual painted replicas.

Invest In Great Lighting

Another great tip we have when it comes to creating a museum quality gallery at home is to invest in great lighting and neutral walls. You’ve probably noticed how each piece is well lit and placed on a neutral color wall. Most galleries choose a darker neutral, ranging from tan to dark gray, to help each print stand out even more.

If you can, having a dimmer switch can create amazing mood lighting like you see in museums and art galleries. If you can install light panels around each of your pieces or at least in the area where you have the most art to display, we guarantee that you’ll love the effect. Lighting might be the most important part of really getting the museum feel that you’re looking for, so make sure you spend a little time setting this up in your home.

Don’t Discount The Smaller Rooms

Something we hear all the time is that our customers feel they don’t have enough space in their homes. However, you don’t need a giant blank wall to get that museum quality gallery. In fact, don’t discount the smaller rooms in your home as great places to display art and photographs. Even in a powder room, you can draw attention away from the toilet and onto a vertical display of stunning photographs.

Walk around your home and start noticing the smaller spaces that artwork can transform into eye catching and beautiful spots in your home.

Use A Pattern Or Keep It Wild and Free

At home galleries are great because they have nearly unlimited options when it comes to actually hanging and displaying the art. If you like a uniform look, keep everything in an evenly spaced grid with matching frames. 

If you’re a little more eclectic, then mix and match print styles and frames to give a random and unique feel to your home. At the end of the day, it’s all about what you like the most. Match your own style and don’t be afraid to let your creative side loose when it’s time to hang up your custom artwork.

Leave Room To Expand

If you’re looking to turn your home into a museum quality gallery, chances are you’re an art collector who has an eye for design. Which to us means that your collection will be ever expanding, so make sure you leave room to add more pieces. 

Whether that means installing a shelf in your living room that you can layer pieces and switch out your favorite photos whenever you’d like, or leaving room on your walls to add more if you’d like - make sure you think about what pieces you’ll be getting next.

Keep your display flexible so that you can rearrange easily as you cycle prices in and out.
