Wall Art

Interior design can turn a bland room into something almost magical with a combination of colour scheme, furniture, accessories and wall art. Paying an interior designer to decorate your home will transform it into something your friends will talk about for some time. Interior designers use many types of wall art to help bring the walls to life, from paintings and posters to photos on canvas and acrylic styled artwork. It really depends on the type of house and its owners as to what wall art works best for a particular property.

Some designers may use acrylic prints (also known as Perspex prints) that would compliment a contemporary interior design, thanks to the flame polished edges and high gloss finish they offer. Acrylic prints are almost 3D in nature thanks to the 5mm acrylic sheet which reflects the printed image around the edges. It’s a very striking way to display a picture and interior designers are enjoying the brightness these prints bring to any room they hang in.

In another interior project a canvas print may be more suitable. Not as modern looking as the acrylics, canvases suit homes that are decorated in the normal sense. Thanks to the technology of today’s high-end printers, the giclee printed image still looks stunning on the cotton canvas material and the inks used ensure a gallery quality 75 year light fastness. That means that the canvas art may well be around long after you have gone!

Finding suitable artwork for the walls of homes or businesses can be a struggle for interior designers but help is at hand with the many online gallery-type art stores available today at the click of a mouse. One such gallery is Fotoviva Art Prints that offers a collection of over 500 high-end photographic prints. These have all been professionally taken and hand-picked for their artistic and inspirational nature. Designers can choose to buy each picture as a canvas print, acrylic print or a straight poster, meaning the image can be printed in a way to suit the particular room design. Not only this, but bespoke sizes can be custom printed to suit.

One final feature interior designers have in their arsenal is the triptych canvas print. This is where the image is split between 3 canvas frames for added punch. Especially suitable for landscape or modern art images, these triptychs bring a wall to life like no other printing medium can. If you have seen a three panel canvas art hanging on a wall you will know how eye-catching they can be.
