Empty walls can make your whole room feel undecorated. Adding art or impressive photography not only fills up those bare walls, but provides a feel of individuality and personal style to your room. Pick the right items and you’ll have your guests impressed with your style. Even on a budget, great wall-filling art, photography or mirrors are available, you just have to know where to look. Here are some useful tips:
Photographs are a great way of showcasing the worlds wonders from the comfort of your own home. From panoramic shots of places you’ve visited, cities you’d love to visit or just personal photographs that capture family memories, photography adds individual taste to a room. If world famous names such as Peter Lik are out of your price range, other options are available. Any holiday snaps taken with a good spec camera should be good enough to be blown up to a good size, with online stores offering glossy, matte and canvas printing options. With stylish framing and placing it in the right spot on the wall, you’re all set to show off your photography skills to guests at your house warming party.
- Screen print artwork
Decorating your home with posters is no longer just for students. With screen print posters becoming more and more popular, you can show off your favourite films on your living room wall. Mondo, an online screen print poster company provides a platform for both budding and established graphic designers to sell their commissioned work. Classic and upcoming film posters are sold with an online ‘drop’ where a limited number of pieces are put on sale for roughly £30 each (with an additional fee for shipping from America to the UK), but you have to be quick to grab yourself one, as their ever growing fan base means you won’t stand a chance if you’re a couple of minutes late. Add a nice frame to fit in with your rooms’ decoration and you’ll be onto a real winner.
Not all wall fillers need to be pieces of art, a nice mirror can often be used to add a new depth to a room. Don’t settle for something cheap and nasty as you need to remember your living room is for entertaining when you have guests. A nice classy, reasonably sized mirror shouldn’t blow the bank and can easily be used to break up large chunks of empty wall space. While it might not be as eye-catching as a photo or piece of artwork, your new mirror is a subtle way to get subtly rid of the empty feel.
