Choosing the perfect new piece of art to add to your home or office can be an overwhelming task sometimes. Here at KAB Gallery our team pride ourselves on match making the artwork to the client – below we’ve compiled some of our top tips when it comes to choosing the perfect piece.
Measure Your Space
You’ve possibly got a spot in mind for your exciting new art – it may be an obvious step but measuring the space is so important and can eliminate the stress about whether the painting or sculpture you love will actually fit. Ask our team for some helpful strategies of visualizing the size against the area – and for some sizing suggestions corresponding to the furniture available and wall space!
Go With Your Gut… and Your Favourite Piece
Often we witness clients walk in, fall head over heels with an artwork but then they begin to rationalize… “will other people like this?” “should I go for a darker colour?” “maybe I should go for a smaller piece?”. This is where the magic upon first seeing an artwork that speaks to you gets inhibited by rationalizing thoughts and you may perhaps be swayed by this to going for a painting that doesn’t quite capture your eye in the end. The most important thing is to follow your gut when buying art by going for your favorite piece. Sometimes budget can be a hurdle and this is where we can help with our interest free lay-by service, and options such as Art Money and After Pay. Sometimes it’s better to save up a little for the artwork that will be treasured forever and quite possibly become a family heirloom to be treasured for years to come!
Figure Out Your Taste
Finding what style of art you’re drawn to is the most enjoyable step. Grab a coffee, browse through our beach side gallery and online store. Take note of what catches your eye – think about the objects and furniture you already live with and love, peruse some art magazines and blogs. Even instagram can be a fabulous place to start and hone in on your style! You can follow updates on our instagram here to get started.
Think Original Quality
Art is an investment and you want to be sure you’re purchasing a piece that is of quality and original. You can be confident at KAB Gallery that each artist is hand selected by our qualified directors. Each artist has their own unique style, using premium materials, frames and are often prize winners and finalists in some of Australia’s biggest Art Awards. An original painting is much more special than just a print and can be passed down for generations to come and appreciated for its long lasting beauty.
