Finding inspiration for art can be a tough call for any creative person out there. One minute you're creating a masterpiece. The next minute, you're struggling to doodle a horse.

Sometimes, the secret to finding inspiration for art could be right in front of you. For example, renovating your house to make it an artist's dream sounds like a good start.

Whether you're a DIY enthusiast or an artist who runs an essay writing service, you'll definitely find the following tips handy.

Let's take a closer look at the 6 things you could fix in your house to find your muse:

1. Get A Large Desk

You're probably thinking to yourself: "what on Earth does a desk have to do with finding inspiration?". Well, it's simple. As an artist, your lack of creativity and inspiration could stem from using cramped spaces.

A tiny desk will definitely limit you and make it harder for your creative juices to flow since you'll be more focused on trying to manage the little space you're working in.

On the other hand, a large table will let you spread out and get creative. You'll definitely not have to worry about scrunching up your cool artwork while working.

So, if you're trying to find inspiration for creating meaningful drawings, you might want to start by getting a larger desk that can accommodate all your art supplies at once.

2. Your Wall Is Your Canvas

Art is subjective and deeply personal. Sometimes, what you need to find inspiration isn't the conventional canvas and easel setup. You just need to try out something unconventional, like transforming your wall into a canvas.

You could start by ditching your canvas and painting murals on your walls instead. Many artists have already scooped up this idea to get their creative juices flowing again, and so can you.

In 2020, this simple wall painting technique helped a lot of quarantined artists regain their inspiration and creativity. Over 60 artists started painting murals on just about anything you can think of: living room walls, kitchen floors, garden sheds, and even bathtubs.

In fact, it became a global movement for stuck-at-home artists to practice their art and shake off unproductivity. So if you're looking for a sign to create amazing bedroom wall art, this is it.

3. Carve Out A Dedicated Craft Room

Do you have a spare room in your home that's dedicated to your craft? If you don't, now is the right time to clear out your guest bedroom and turn it into a space for your art.

Trying to create art in your crowded living room or kitchen is often counter-productive. That’s because several studies have shown that too much clutter can negatively affect your productivity.

On the other hand, having a clutter-free workspace can help your creative juices flow faster than ever.

So, clear out your guest room and create a colourful pegboard for all your art supplies. Throw in some furniture as well as decor that reflects your personality. Voila! You've created your very own clutter-free craft room.

4. Make Your Home Colourful

Are your walls dreary or boring? Such walls are every artist's worst nightmare. They shut off your creative juices and make it even harder for you to find or regain inspiration. Imagine trying to create beautiful bedroom art while staring at a wall that looks like it belongs within The Great Depression.

If your walls are dull, you'll need to repaint them with bright, warm colours. For instance, you can use yellow if you're trying to create a sunroom effect.

Alternatively, white walls with a contrasting colour can also help to make your home seem less dreary. However, it's advisable not to splash too many bright hues together if you don’t want to get too distracted.

Another great way to make your home colourful is by throwing in some colourful furniture to make it come alive. Put a bright bean bag here and an original rug there.

You could even throw in a plant or two to make your home more vibrant. This way, you'll be able to get inspired by the sheer beauty of your space.

5. Make Sure Your Artistic Equipment Is Always Close Enough

As an artist, your art supplies should be like a purse - you either carry them everywhere you go or keep them beside you at all times. It's easier to regain inspiration when your art supplies are always within your reach. But how do you do that?

For starters, you could hang a pin board (also known as a peg board) containing all your art supplies. A pin board will help you stay organized and make it easier to access your supplies whenever you need them.

Pro Tip: Your pin board might be a practical tool but it doesn't have to be boring. Paint it using bright colours that will make it more original. This way, it'll be easier for you to get a burst of inspiration just by staring at it.

6. Hang Artwork All Around

Another way you can use to regain a touch for creativity is to fill your walls with artwork. Observing meaningful pieces of other artists can fill your mind with creative ideas and provide sufficient motivation to create your own masterpiece.

However, don't just put up random designs around your home. Instead, go for professional art pieces that will genuinely spark your interest. This way, you won’t be stuck in the creative crisis trap for long.

Final Thoughts

Trying to regain inspiration for art can be a disheartening task, especially when you've tried every trick in the book. Luckily, we've discovered great ways to turn your home into a creative zone that will help you find motivation.

You can start by repainting your walls or adding a splash of colour to your home. You'll be surprised about how these tiny details can help your creative juices gush out like a fountain.

We hope you find these tips helpful. Good luck!
