Art above a bed size guide
As I tend to work with mostly the same sizes for my work. I thought I'd put together a bit of a visual guide for how they look in situ in a bedroom. Here I've used a standard double bed.
There are a few things to consider when choosing what size work you'd like for a bedroom - the bed size, ceiling height, are you going to frame the work, does the bed have a headboard, is there lighting above the bed etc. In the end it comes down to personal preference but hopefully the images here will be some help.
Most of my works on paper and limited edition print are the standard 10x8", 11x14" and 16x20" sizes. Yes, even though I'm based in Australia and we use the metric system, inches are still used for photos and framing, so those are still standard print sizes and easy to find frames for. The next images show the prints with a mat in a standard frame.
When you get down to the smaller sized prints you may want to consider more than one to help fill the space.
I hope that helps and remember if you're not sure if a particular piece will work in your room feel free to email a pic over and I can do a quick mock up to give you an idea - just make sure to have something in there as a size reference like a piece of furniture with the measurements so I can get the scale as close as possible.
