Finding The Right Prints For Your Home
From your kitchen to your living room art belongs everywhere, it is what helps define the personality of your home. But it can be difficult to select the right piece for your space to add that bit of character you’ve been looking for.
An easy room to forget, despite it being the heart of the home and often the most used room in the house. The kitchen makes for an ideal spot to showcase some artwork and countertops make the perfect homes for your kitchen art. We would recommend picking out smaller pieces that complement as opposed to overwhelm the space. We suggest an upbeat quote to cheer you up on a Monday morning or why not try adding something useful, like our conversion chart.
You should treat your bedroom like a hideaway, a place for relaxation and your chosen artwork should reflect this. The best walls for art in the bedroom are directly over the bed or on the wall opposite. One or two large scale pieces are best and should be hung at eye level in a minimal frame so you can focus on the art piece itself and not a bulk frame. Look for landscapes pieces with soothing colours or tones, such as our aeroplane in the distance print, this is sure to bring the whole room together.
Whether you work from home or in an office, art is a great way to personalise your space and keep you inspired. Chances are, hanging up frames probably isn’t an option. But you can always opt for a standing frame which can sit on your desk, to display your favourite print. Alternatively, if you sit next to a wall, try hanging up your prints with colourful washi tape, so they are easily removable and won’t damage the walls. Now for the fun part, pick out your prints, we think an assortment of small pieces that inspires you is ideal for a work-space. Try collaging a mood board of sorts, positive images and quotes are always a good place to start to get you through the 9-5, take a look at our range of quotes to get you feeling inspired!
Much like the kitchen, the bathroom is another room that often gets ignored when it comes to displaying art, the artwork you choose should reflect the style of your bathroom. If you’re looking to decorate the family bathroom, stick to a selection of fun and bright prints. Whereas if it's a master bathroom, go with more tranquil or calming pieces. Bathroom prints usually look great in pairs, either stacked or side by side, and their ideal spot for these pieces would be over the toilet or the bathtub. They can be two of the same abstract pieces with one flipped on its side, or two different pieces that go with the same theme, we recommend a fun selection of classic movie posters, that works great in a bathroom setting.
The Living Room
The most enjoyable room to decorate but also the most intimidating is the living room. Choosing the right pieces is essential to setting the feel of the space and bringing the whole room together. We think the perfect way to display artwork in this living space is a gallery wall, you can go for a mismatch of colour and patterns or a complementary set of pieces, either way, make sure your gallery wall is a showstopper. As for framing your artwork, you can opt for a minimalist look, using similar frames throughout or you can go for a range of different frames to add some more character.
