We strongly believe one should make a very productive yet calming space from a spare room in their houses. It should be something where you can relieve all the stress by spending a couple of hours there. To us, making your own art studio seems like a very practical solution. It would be even easier if you are an artist yourself or even if you simply love art.
Here is everything you can do to make an art studio at home.
- Easel by the Window
Easels really give off a magical vibe even if you don’t use them frequently. Get one and place it by the window. It would be very therapeutic to paint by the window, especially if there are lush green trees outside and lots of other mesmerizing works of nature. You can also create your own scenery if there’s nothing special about that window. Also, keep a comfortable chair like the Molmic Sofas at Thornton & Blake nearby so you can relax after long hours of painting.
- Write Positive Quotes
We are sure you must know about numerous quotes that have left a deep impact on your thought process. Why not value such quotes by putting them up in your art studio? You could also use quotes by famous artists from previous and current times. Go for the quotes you can easily relate to. Remember that whatever you do in your art room should be meaningful so you can actually own that space instead of treating it like just another room.
- Pick a Theme
An art room is supposed to have lots of paintings, but you cannot put up random paintings without thought and meaning. Pick a theme and stick to it. It could be based on a color, idea, era, or any other concept that hold great meaning for you. Take your time to evaluate a work of art before putting it up. Once you do so, you will know what kind of paintings to hang, colors for the walls, and other details that would go well with the theme.
- Be Smart With Lights
Art rooms are supposed to work as a therapy for you. Therefore, they have to be calming instead of inducing chaos in every inch of your brain. Lights play a very important role here because the kind of lights you install can either give you a headache or calm your mind. For this reason, you should go for gentle lights with a good distribution so you can paint without difficulty. Above all, the lights should make the artwork shine.
- Put Some Music
We all know music is also a very strong form of art. Most artists really enjoy working with some great tunes on their sound system. It helps them remain focused on their work and also makes them enjoy their work even more. Light, fun, and meaningful lyrics have always worked well with art rooms and studios. However, make sure the music isn’t too loud because there has to be a difference between a club and an art space.
We hope these ideas will help you with enhancing the environment of your art room.
