Who likes bare walls? No one! Have you ever just observed the interior of your beloved home and thought that maybe it seems quite dull and empty? Well, cramming it up with furniture is certainly not the answer. Instead of going for a messy and irregular space filled up with decorative items and furnishings, choose the perfect alternative: wall art. Are you on a budget? Don’t even worry! Photography prints are much more cost effective and give a modern and homey feel that is usually somewhat tricky to achieve with traditional art. Keeping reading to find out about all the different aspects of decorating your ‘home sweet home’ with photography prints.
WHY CHOOSE PHOTOGRAPHY PRINTS FOR YOUR HOME?
In addition to the above factors, a very prominent and significant advantage of going for photography prints is that you get to choose the ‘feel’ of your living space. Convey a bright and cheery feel with a print of a beautiful sunny landscape shot or an artistic look with a fine art photograph, maintain your minimalist interior theme with modern photography or transform your space to green and lively with photographs of nature. You can choose from endless themes and types to effortlessly transition the aura of your home according to your likes.
PICKING THE PERFECT SIZE ACCORDING TO YOUR INTERIOR, WALLS, AND FURNITURE
After you have selected the particular photograph you want, the type of print you want it in, –a matte canvas print or a smooth metal print –it can be quite confusing as to what size would be ideal for your space. For example, a single large print will not suffice for a gigantic wall. In this case, it is advisable that you get a series of photographs with related, flowing subject matter or theme and display it together with a small gap between each print. This will not only fill up your space in an aesthetic manner but will also effectively downplay the hugeness of the wall.
Similarly, then you are choosing a photography print to hand behind a sofa, seater or any other furniture such as tables, etc., it is recommended that you make sure that your print is smaller in length than the length of the furniture or sofa. These are only two examples of interior décor tips that designers swear by. You can match up different combinations and sizes to see what fits your space.
GOING FOR LARGE-SCALE?
A super-sized portrait is the easiest way to absorb all the attention of the viewer, leaving him/her mesmerized by your living space. What’s more, a large scale print shows much more details and intricacies that the photographer has managed to capture. This creates a captivating and enthralling experience for the onlooker and naturally attracts him/her to study the artwork closely. However, in the end, it all comes down to the architecture and décor of your space. Large-scale prints must be chosen in consideration of these features.
FRAMING YOUR PRINT?
Framing decisions are just as important as picking sizes and print types. Deciding whether to frame your print or not, mount your print or not and the size and ratio of your frame and the mount is very crucial to the process of upgrading your home with prints. Also, there are further choices to make as to whether one should glaze a print or not, and if yes, then should it be glass or acrylic. Make sure to make the right decisions for your print through experimentation, research, and consultation.
Your home is a reflection of your personality and your individuality. Upgrading your space will not only improve your general atmosphere according to your preferences, but it will also enhance the overall image of your home.
