Accessorising the home is one of the most exciting parts about owning or renting a house, flat or bedroom in a house-share. With so many different opportunities to really showcase your personality and give your home a bit of an edge, there are plenty of ways to accessorise your home. While some people prefer clocks and mirrors, others prefer decorating their home with wall art. Here, we’ve broken down some of the best ways to accessorise your home with art.
One of the first ways to decorate and accessorise your home is with canvas prints. Canvas prints offer an opportunity to really personalise your home. Whether you opt for personalised framed canvas prints with your family or pets photographed, or an easy-to-hang pre-made image canvas, canvas prints are one of the most popular ways to decorate a room. Lighter and easier to hang than a traditional framed print, and a truly versatile nature, canvas prints remain at the heart of many homes.
Are you not quite sure which print and photograph should go in which room? It doesn’t matter! You can choose a gallery wall and showcase your favourite images and art pieces all in one place. A gallery wall can add colour, zest and an eclectic finish to any room. If you’re looking to create an illusion of space, then you can also extend your gallery wall up to your ceiling.
Removable Wall Art
Are you the type of person to change your mind and preferences on a regular basis? Or do you simply not quite like the idea of having a permanent feature in your home? Removable wall art could be the answer.
This is particularly useful if you’re renting a home, as removable wall art offers an opportunity to personalise a room without damaging the walls. Removable wall art can come in an array of shapes, sizes and styles, with some offering a luxurious, matte finish and feel to give your home an essence of sophistication.
If you have a particularly small space or area in your room that you’d like to enhance, then a large-scale art piece could be the ideal solution. Large scale art can add a splash of colour and command attention in any room, really helping to drive focus away from the small space around. If you want something really stand-out, then an abstract piece could be the ideal solution.
Opt For Something Different
Wall art doesn’t have to be a print or a canvas, or even a photograph! In fact, wall art can be anything you can imagine it to be. Hang mirrors, choose fabrics and tapestries, or even use your wall as a space for storage (i.e. a fancy hat or umbrella holder). When it comes to your home, you can be as creative as possible in order to really showcase your own personality. With so many opportunities to add an element of ‘you’ into your home, why not start by decorating your walls with some wall art?
