Essential Wall Décor Tips for Every Home

Last Updated: March 6, 2018

When you photograph an image that brings you the utmost joy, you'll want to display it in a way that truly accentuates its beauty. 

Every room in your home is full of opportunities to showcase your wall décor pieces with personality. We’re here to walk you through your next home décor refresh based on four essential interior decorating considerations: light, colour, subject and space. 

1. Get Clever with Colour

A splash of colour will go a long way in your white and neutral tone rooms. Your kitchen is a place of creation after all – eye-catching wall décor will inspire your food prep. Customize metal prints to brighten your colourful photos further, bringing a welcome contrast to white spaces.

Mixed with items on open shelves or on walls between cabinets, metal wall art effortlessly coordinates with shiny hardware and surfaces in your kitchen or bathroom. The smooth metal panel is easy to clean, and the rounded corners soften any room with sharp angles. 

2. Wall Décor Brought to Life by Light

Natural light is one of the most sought after features of any space. Position your art on a bright day, so that you can best capitalize on the bright spaces around your home.

Canvas prints are the most versatile print medium in terms of placement, because they won’t have any glare or reflection from nearby windows. Daytime sun illuminates the canvas, and evening sun reveals the hues of your photo in different, warm ways.

3. Set the Mood with Subject

Certain rooms in your home pair well with a specific sort of artwork. A striking travel photo in the dining room is a great dinner conversation piece, while guest bedroom décor should evoke a relaxing haven for all tastes. For the guest bed, go for a photo that is fairly neutral but gets noticed, striking a happy medium. 

Remember that relaxing colors – blues, greens, and anything in between – promote mindfulness, putting your visitors at ease. Do you have a crowd-pleasing nature shot in your photo collection?

4. Be Savvy with Smaller Spaces

Smaller rooms are often overlooked as a prime place for wall décor. Scale down with smaller sized pieces featuring light colours to keep the space feeling open. 

Transform hallway walls into a gallery with a cluster of custom canvas prints to make passing through a pleasure. Whether it's a photo timeline of the kids growing up or a collection of wedding pictures that bring you back to the church aisle, your heart will flutter daily as you stroll by. 

The beauty of customizing your own wall art is that you can personalize it perfectly for your home's unique style. When you're ready to print your next piece, remember that colour, light, space and subject each come into play.
