How to effectively use self drawn paintings to beautify the home

Painting is one of the first hobbies taken up by the children that can bloom into a profession if properly guided. The exhibition of the talent should begin at home itself. The article gives some ideas on how to display the paintings done by you in creative ways in the house itself for your guests and relatives to see, appreciate and give feedback as well.

Drawing and painting are one of the first hobbies that children show up in their early years of growth and development. Parents cherish these paintings and often dream and imagine their children excelling in this field. Support and guidance from parents and relatives flow in when you show serious interest and pleasure in the subject. So why not make a little better use of this hobby.

Think of the ways you can display your paintings for others to see and ask you to show more. The artistic family nameplate on the main door is the best place to display your creation. This place is viewed by even the passersby who can also appreciate your resourcefulness. Besides this place, there are the living room, bedroom, the study room and the guest room that can be utilized for exhibiting the talent in you.

Living Room

A welcome painting inviting your guests to your home is always a requisite in your living room. It should be placed at a location where it can be easily noticed by your guests. This framed painting will certainly be appreciated by your guests and relatives.

There are also some other paintings that are generally put in the living rooms of Indian homes. Few of these can also be attempted by you as per your capabilities. A painting of Lord Ganesha or the Laughing Buddha will definitely bring out the artist in you.

If you have taken some coaching in this hobby and are confident to carry out bigger paintings, then the painting or the sketch of the seven horses that is said to bring in luck can be taken up by you.

You can also show your creativity to the family like a photo that embellishes the walls, side tables or even the shelves of the drawing rooms in most of the Indian houses. You can decorate the borders or the sides of the family photo. A little creativity here suggests the talent in you.


The scope for flaunting the walls with your painting is more when you have your own bedroom. Few framed paintings can be put up on the walls. However, you would have to share the walls with your siblings when you share the bedroom with them. Now they also have the right to display their talents.

Handcrafted photo frame on the table or the hand-painted tissue box or even the small art pieces on the dressing table for keeping the things neat gives the room a more than simple yet sober look.

Study Room

If you have a study room of your own, then the decoration and maintenance of this room is entirely your responsibility. This room should suggest your personality. It is also the best place where your drawing talent is reflected. You need not make too many paintings, but need to put your paintings intelligently.

Card Sheet with paintings: A card sheet can be put on one of the walls holding small paintings made by you. This can also have your beautifully decorated school time-table in bigger writings for an easy glance from a distance.

You can also go ahead with your creativity and make a handmade calendar with paintings drawn by you. Refer to any calendar for the dates and the holidays.

Find out other places where your paintings or sketches can be put up without making the walls over decorated. The side space of the bookshelf or the wooden rack or shelf can be scribbled or painted with acrylic colors or the poster colors to make it more attractive.

Who knows where this small effort might lead you to? Well, you will definitely learn to implement your creative ideas in the restrained environment for a better usage. Moreover, you will also learn to organize and exhibit your paintings.

A good article for someone who is good at painting. Most of us would be good to draw and paint on a A4 size paper but few possess the skill to showcase the same talent on a large canvas in the form on an watercolour or an oil paiting.
The best way to encourage one's own talent like painting is to display it. Initially we can use this for personal use at home, as one gets better at this, who knows they can even have people buying the paintings.

Apart from the quality of the painting, the framing also plays a crucial role in enhancing the visual appeal of the painting for the particular room and the wall. If someone is good at painting, they needed not limit themselves to the canvas, they can try their skills in painting small vases, pottery, wall hangers, small table cloths etc.
