Finding the Perfect Art Print for Your Home: A Guide to Choosing the Right Artwork for You

Struggling to decide what type of art print you'd like most for your home or office? I know the feeling. Choosing a piece of art for your home is a very intimate and personal endeavor. I don't think anyone will ever be able to give you a definitive answer for what art print is right for you, but here are some tips we can go over that might help you in the right direction.

Choosing the right art print for your home can be a tough decision to make, but there are a few things you can consider to help you make the best choice:

  1. Size and placement: Consider the size of the art print and where you plan to hang it. Make sure the print is proportionate to the wall space and that it complements the room's overall design.

  1. Color scheme: Think about the color scheme of the room where the art print will be displayed. The colors in the print should complement or contrast with the colors in the room.

  2. Style: Choose a print that reflects your personal style and complements the overall aesthetic of your home.

  3. Subject matter: If you want to create a focal point in a room, choose a print with a bold image or an interesting subject. If you want the print to blend in with the room's decor, choose a print with more subdued colors and a simpler subject.

  4. Lighting: Make sure you have adequate lighting to display the art, preferably one with a high CRI. If you're unsure, you can read more about lighting in this blog post.

  5. Matting and framing: Consider matting and framing options to enhance the overall look of the art print. Matting and framing can also help to protect the print from damage.

  6. Emotion: Consider the emotions that the art print evokes in you, it should make you feel happy, relaxed or inspired depending on what you want to achieve with the print.

Remember that art prints should be a reflection of your personal style and interests. Artwork is how we convey who we are to the world and our guests, so don't be afraid to choose something that speaks to you. And don't be afraid to experiment and try different prints in different rooms to see how they look.
