Art is such an easy way to add style personality to your home. It’s also a completely subjective accessory, so it’s almost impossible to get it wrong. Whilst we are advocates for investing in original art pieces where possible, this particular luxury is not always within reach. Thankfully there are amazing alternatives to adorn your home whilst you consider your big investment. Digital art prints are ever evolving and are becoming super accessible. With minimal effort and spend, you can really freshen up a space.
Printable art tends to be really affordable and offers an easy solution to building a gallery wall. Framing stores are also starting to capitalise on this trend by offering digital platforms to upload your digital files, select your desired frames and deliver your framed artwork to your door. Draft, the framing arm of local art supplier Drawdeck, is offering this service.
We thought it might be helpful to share some tips with a little list of some of our favourite sources for digital prints.
Tips on framing and displaying your art:
- Invest in having your artwork professionally framed and spend some time looking at different frame and mount options. Drawdeck offers a range of different frames and sizes. Choosing the right frame allows your artwork to shine and gives it a clean and modern aesthetic.
- A simple thin frame in a beech, white or black is what it’s all about at the moment.
- Before picking up a hammer, plot out what’s going where. Create a mock up on the floor or wall with paper cut to the size of the pictures you are planning to hang, this will give you the chance to get the arrangement right and avoid any disasters.
- Embrace irregularity, don’t be afraid to go off centre. Trust your instincts, 90% of the time we go with what looks good.
- Hang art at eye level and avoid pieces too high.
- Prints aren’t just restricted to the wall. A popular design trend is to place your prints on the floor, propped up against the wall. Place the larger prints first, which allows you to place smaller prints in front and to the side in a layering effect. This also works well on shelves, consoles or ledges.
