How to Choose the Perfect Wall Art Print for Your Home

How to Choose the Perfect Wall Art Print for Your Home

Are you looking to add some personality and style to your home decor? Wall art prints are a great way to express your unique taste and bring any room to life. But with so many options available, how do you choose the perfect print? Here are some tips from the experts at Stone & Gray.

Consider Your Existing Decor

Before browsing our extensive collection of wall art prints, take a look at your current home decor. What colors, patterns, and styles are present in your furniture, rugs, curtains, and other decorative elements? You'll want to choose art that complements these existing pieces.

For example, if your living room features neutral tones and clean lines, you might opt for a minimalist abstract print like this one from our Abstract & Modern collection:

On the other hand, if your bedroom showcases bold colors and eclectic prints, a vibrant botanical or animal print could be the perfect statement piece, like these options from our Bright & Bold collection:

Think About the Mood You Want to Create

Different art styles can evoke very different moods. Before making your selection, consider how you want to feel in the space.

For a calming, peaceful vibe, look for prints with soothing colors and subjects, like ocean scenes, soft abstracts, or muted landscapes. Our Moody & Muted collection has some great options:

If you want to energize a room and spark conversation, go for bold, eye-catching pieces like colorful abstracts or striking photography. Check out our Iconic & Statement collection for inspiration:

Choose Art That Reflects Your Personality

Your home should be an expression of who you are, so choose wall art that speaks to your interests, experiences, and aesthetic. Are you drawn to vintage-inspired pieces? Nature and animals? Modern and minimalist designs? Playful pop art?

For a curated selection of prints tailored to different tastes, explore some of our themed collections:

Don't be afraid to mix and match different styles that resonate with you. The most interesting spaces layer diverse elements to create a one-of-a-kind look.

Factor in Size and Placement

Before falling in love with a print, make sure to measure your wall space and consider the ideal size for that location. A print that's too small can look lost on a large wall, while an oversized print can overwhelm a compact room.

Here are some general guidelines:

  • For placing art above furniture like a couch or console table, choose a print that's about 2/3 the width of the furniture
  • Hang art at eye level, with the center of the print about 57-60 inches from the floor
  • When creating a gallery wall, leave 2-4 inches between frames

Browse our different size options to find the perfect fit:

Print Size Dimensions (inches)
Small 16 x 20
Medium 20 x 24
Large 32 x 40

Mix and Match for a Collected Look

Don't feel like you need to commit to a single art style throughout your home. The most dynamic spaces mix and match prints from different genres and eras.

For example, you could pair a vintage botanical illustration with an abstract expressionist print, or a black and white photo with a colorful pop art piece. The key is to find a common thread, whether that's a color scheme, theme, or framing style.

Our New This Week collection is a great place to discover an eclectic mix of fresh finds:

Invest in Quality Prints and Framing

When buying wall art, it pays to invest in quality. Look for prints from reputable studios that use archival inks and acid-free paper. This ensures your art will look great for years to come without fading or deteriorating.

At Stone & Gray, all our prints are:

  • Printed with vivid, museum-quality inks
  • Printed on thick and durable 240-300gsm paper
  • Available in a variety of sizes
  • Framed in your choice of high-quality wooden frames

Create a Focal Point

Every room needs a focal point that draws the eye and anchors the space. A large-scale wall art print is the perfect way to create this effect.

For maximum impact, choose a print with bold colors, an interesting subject, or an oversized scale. Hang it on the wall opposite the entrance to your space, or above a key piece of furniture like a bed, couch or fireplace.

This stunning abstract print would make a great focal point in a modern living room or bedroom:

Have Fun and Trust Your Instincts

At the end of the day, choosing wall art for your home should be a fun and personal experience. While these guidelines can help point you in the right direction, ultimately you should choose pieces that speak to you on an emotional level.

Art has the power to inspire, provoke, soothe, and delight. Surround yourself with prints that make you feel good every time you look at them. Trust your instincts and let your walls reflect your unique story.
