Choosing The Right Lighting for Paintings & Artwork

Tips on Lighting and Installing Paintings: 

There are several ways to enhance the visual appeal of a painting or artwork with lighting for your interior.  Most interior designers in Kuala Lumpur would recommend LED lights because oil paintings are less heat resistant. 


Explore placing the lamp or lighting in a way that will give life to the painting. You can consider adjusting the lighting accordingly to bring out an effect you desire for your paintings.  From our experiences, pointing the lights from the left or right of the painting never fail to create the most beautiful effect. We believe that too much light or too little light might impact the visual aspect of the art piece. 

It is crucial that the picture light projects well beyond the picture and even above to ensure no direct reflection in the art itself. 

Make sure that the light is not too cold and it is dimmable to achieve the best results on the painting.  


Personally, we feel that art and paintings should be hung at eye level. The central piece should be hung at eye level if there is a series of pieces.

Decorating Dark Hue Wall with Paintings

Painting your wall in dark colours is often perceived as a bit of a risk but when it is done right, it instantly transforms the space and adds character to the entire space. Most would pefer white walls as white walls create a feeling of spaciousness and work in just about every scheme. However, I personally love a dark wall, when done right, it instantly transforms the space. It grounds a room,  adds character, and serves as an ideal backdrop for your art and paintings. Dark hue wall in the bedroom or living room immediately attract attention, hence paintings or any other objects placed will appear much more spectacular and with added drama from the rest of the space.

Decorating a room that is painted in dark colors isn’t any different from decorating any other room, but it just requires some extra care.The biggest worry for any room painted in dark colors is that it will feel gloomy. However this can be offset by with the right decorating such as placement of white or light artwork in the room and light rug.

Dark colors can be a bold statement,it is important to ensure that the rest of the room harmonizes well with the wall color. Select the right artwork  and paintings to make sure that they look right against the paint color. The followings are some of the examples of the types of paintings which can enhance or harmonize with black wall. 

This is a good example to illustrate the combination of lamp and painting can be integrated

to fill up the empty space in the event that you could not find a long piece of artwork to match a 

long sofa.

This is an example where a black based oil painting can be utilized

to complemend dark walls and become a statement piece simultaneously.

your dark wall or interior space. Custom-made or commissioned painting can be arranged upon request.
