Because prints are cheap and the new technology grants stunning quality, people prefer these when decorating homes, offices or commercial spaces. Besides, printed art in itself is such a convenient and popular form of art. It’s even very easy to clean and maintain. Also, it’s lightweight. Let’s explore some of the easiest methods to have such art mounted on a wall.
The canvas block mounting method is great because it gives a new dimension. The print will be installed on a frame of a certain thickness, turning it into a 3D decorative object. With this new dimension, the image will no longer look like a cheap, simple print. It’s a perfect way to give it more decorative value.
The art objects obtained through canvas block mounting in Sydney can be made to any size. If you choose small prints, you can even make art arrangements by placing more together on the same wall.
Another popular way to have prints displayed – fragile ones especially – is to glue it to a colored cardboard surface, then add a thin frame and a glass for cover. There is a vintage appeal to this method and it can be successfully employed when you aim to display several pieces. You may choose to make it monochrome or you may have a bright colored background, perhaps something to match the room.
By gluing a print to a solid base, like cardboard, you can simply use a frame with it and it’s ready to be up on the wall. What works best with printed images are minimal or rustic frames, with a certain roughness and simplicity to them. Wood is definitely the best choice. You may even leave this bare, with no kind of finish, to enjoy the full rustic effect.
Not only the mounting matters, but also the characteristics of the display in itself. To create a beautiful effect, have several prints made in the exact same size. Place them on a wall, all at the same level. They will create a unitary display. Put them at a small distance one from each other. This style works only if the images feature the same style or theme.
To enjoy more flexibility, you may forget about mounting prints on walls and opt for photo frames instead. Thus, you may place these on all sorts of furniture and other surfaces, as long as they are small enough to actually fit the frames. Have a look at contemporary designs and you will see that photo frames aren’t just for displaying photographs of dear ones. These can hold any other print.
It all starts with choosing the right kind of print/mount; then, you may think about the kind of design or display.
