Even if you’re not crazy for interior design, chances are you’ve tried to find cheap wall art online at some point or another to give your house or apartment a little oomph. Considering how much time we’re currently spending cooped up at home, there’s never been a better time to consider revamping your living space (especially when it could help improve your mood!)
No matter your specific taste, a few pieces of affordable wall décor are a great, non-permanent way of brightening up any area, whether you’re hoping to add more flair to your living room or adorn your bedroom with reminders of the things you love.
Why not try mini prints?
They are small prints that can fit just about anywhere. Outfit your desk, dresser or anywhere space is tight with mini art print. Their size may be itty bitty but the decor impact is huge. Keep extras on hand as they are very easy to swap out with the changing seasons or your changing decor moods.
One of the popular types of mini prints are inspirational mini prints. Empower your room with a message to believe, to hope, and to dream with these inspirational pieces of art. Visual prompts can blast us out of ruts and down cycles, grabbing our attention and spurring us into action again. Posters serve this purpose well. A well-written quote or the right imagery printed on paper and hung on a wall can encourage us to get moving again, whether we are intrinsically or externally motivated.
How to Choose the Perfect mini-print for Your Space
Match the artwork
As with all other pieces of art, there is a range of styles that you can choose from. There are landscapes, flowers, abstracts, and many other prints that can be found in canvas artwork so you really need to make sure that the theme in the picture does not clash with the theme in your room.
For instance, a lighthouse landscape is not going to work in a room that has been decorated with an Asian feel, and an oriental floral canvas art is not going to work in a room that was decorated with a nautical feel, no matter how much you like a piece, if it doesn’t match your decor, then it shouldn’t be purchased. Fortunately, inspirational art pieces go with every decor type.
Match the wall
The area where you will be hanging the artwork is an important part of choosing your canvas wall art. First, take a tape measure and get the dimension of the space that needs the artwork. Once you have those dimensions, you will have a better idea of what you would like in a piece.
Make sure that the canvas wall art matches the size of the wall. One of the worst things that can happen is going to the store and purchasing a piece that is too big or even too small. For the former, it may not fit, and for the latter, it may appear out of place in the room, as though the wall art is just floating there in the middle of lost wall space. When you go to the store to purchase your canvas wall art, make sure you bring the tape measure and the measurements to get the best match.
Choose the style
Okay, style differs depending on the room, the design and the individual but before you go out and purchase a canvas wall art, you should be aware of the style that you want. A large piece of canvas can really be a statement piece in an area with a large open wall but it doesn’t have to be the only way that you go. Panels are a great way to fill a room and it breaks up the pattern just enough to bring the eye to the artwork. If you produce a piece of art in panels, it is important to use the proper artwork.
First, most landscapes don’t work well in panels but if you do choose a landscaped piece, make sure that you use canvases side to side and not top to bottom. Second, larger pieces of canvas panels use the rule of three, especially if you are decorating a large wall space but it is perfectly okay to use more than three. Look at the art and decide on the best way to showcase it.
