How to choose an art print

Discovering and choosing art to suit you and your space should be easy and most of all fun, but it can get tricky if you really have no idea where to start.

Below we’ve listed 6 great ways for you to start thinking about how to choose the perfect art print, together with some suggestions of related art categories to help you explore art at King & McGaw.

1. Mood

Choose art to define the mood of your room. You may be looking to create a relaxed feel or something more uplifting. Take a look at these suggested categories that could fit the mood you’re looking to capture:

2. Style

How would you describe the décor in your space? Go for a style of art that really brings out the best in your home décor. Try exploring these home décor style categories:

3. Personal considerations

Consider your personal interests, or the interests of your family and friends who might spend time in your room. Is there a city you or your family have visited recently that you want to remind yourself of, or hobbies that you enjoy and want to share with visitors? Explore art prints by personal interest:

4. Colour

A great way to choose art to suit the colours in your room is to pick an image with accents of the room’s dominant colour. For example you might choose red to match your treasured sofa or yellow to complement your bright curtains. Explore art by colour:

5. Size & Shape

Make sure the art you choose fits your wall space appropriately and complements the furniture around it. Artwork comes in many shapes and sizes, so have a good think about the space you are looking to fill and be creative. As a guide, tall slim art fits high ceilinged rooms or narrow wall space very well. Horizontal or landscape shaped art is well suited to sit above wide furniture, like your sofa. If you have a lot of wall space to fill, consider larger pictures over standard medium sized ones, as you might find they fit the space better. Finally, for those looking for a more considered look in a smaller but maybe awkward space, try groups of 3 or 4 small pictures, which could be a better fit for your wall space.

6. Discover art your way
