Tips for Choosing the Perfect Piano to Harmonize Your Home

There are two approaches to design. Some people bring things home based on need, with zero thought into how it all merges together. Others care about design from the start, ensuring every piece in their home is well thought out and perfectly placed. 

When you start a new hobby like playing the piano, it’s not a simple thing to bring into a well-designed home. Pianos can be large – think grand piano. Pianos should be the centerpoint of a room to ensure you play it often. 

Luckily, we have a few ways to help you choose the perfect piano and harmonize your home design at the same time. 

Start by choosing a piano that complements your home’s existing style and size. Opt for a sleek digital piano or a minimalist upright for a modern space. A classic grand piano can be a stunning centerpiece in a traditional setting. You’ll know it when you find it. It will feel like it fits in.  

Consider your color palette. No, not every piano is black or wood-grained. You’d be surprised at the choices you have. Select a piano finish that harmonizes with your home’s color palette. Coordinate with existing furniture or use the piano as a focal point to introduce complementary or accent colors.

If music is your thing, why not show it off? Enhance the piano’s presence in your home by accessorizing creatively. Add decorative accents like a stylish piano bench, coordinating throw pillows, or artwork that reflects your musical passion. Get creative, and have fun with it! It’ll make you more likely to spend time doing what you love. 

We find many people forget about lighting. Incorporate lighting to highlight the piano and create ambiance. Consider installing wall sconces or pendant lights above the piano to draw attention and enhance its visual impact. And don’t forget it’s essential to see what you’re doing. Highlight the piano keys and the sheet music – it gives you even more reason to sit down and play on a dreary or blustery day. 

Anchor the piano in the room by placing a rug underneath or in front of it to define the space. Coordinate with window treatments like drapes or curtains to tie the room together and create a cohesive look.

Surround the piano with wall decor that complements its presence. To add personality and charm, create a gallery wall featuring musical-themed artwork, framed sheet music, or vintage photographs of pianists.

Incorporate functional storage solutions near the piano to organize sheet music, books, and other accessories. Choose stylish shelving units, cabinets, or baskets that blend seamlessly with your decor.

Add potted plants or fresh flowers near the piano to bring life and freshness to the space. Choose planters that complement your decor and add a touch of natural beauty to the room. Note: Never place them directly on the piano, as they can stain the wood and harm its inner workings. 

Designate a cozy corner or alcove in your home as a dedicated music nook centered around the piano. Add comfortable seating, a reading lamp, and shelves for music books to create an inviting space for practicing and enjoyment.

Above all, have fun and enjoy the process. This is about creating a hobby you’ll love for life. It’s about creating enjoyment you can share with your friends and family. One you’ll enjoy for life.
