How to brighten up a room in your home using Wall Art

Wall Art is a fantastic way to brighten up a room in your home, whether that be a bedroom, lounge or even a tiny downstairs WC.  Many people immediately think they have to a completely redecorate when it comes to changing up a room, however choosing some bright simply wall art could be the answer.  This post is all about tips to brighten up a room in your home using wall art and how to go about doing it!

Whatever your colour theming, size of your room or taste, there is literally wall art to suit everyone.  But what grabs your attention the most?  A canvas?  Framed Art prints?  Or what about a tapestry?  Read on to find out more about these different styles of wall art.

Photos to Paintings

Turning photos into pantings is a fabulous way to bring a personal feel into a room without having to stick photos all around the room.  Having a photo turned into a painting is artistic and gives the room a warmer feel.  It really is an unusual way to bring some wall art into a room and is pretty unique, grabbing most visitors attention!  You can chose to get your sentimental photos digitally hand painted with care by a master artist.  This is literally one of a kind!

Metal Prints

We’ve literally just added some metal prints into our eldest son’s room.  He is 10 and his room is starting to develop into an early teen’s room, taking on a mature vibe.  Including some metal prints completes the look and definitely brings an edgy feel to his football inspired room. 

Canvas Art Prints

I’ve loved using canvas prints all over our home for years.  They are just so classic looking yet still feel pretty new when it comes to displaying wall art.  I think we literally have a canvas in each room of the house!  The amount of choice for a canvas is huge, whether it be museum quality art work, to your own special sentimental photos.  I also love how you can chose to stretch your photo over the canvas  and can chose various thickness too.


Tapesties are pretty universal and are not seen enough in people’s homes.  They can literally transform a room and bring to it much colour and boldness. Tapestries can either lightweight to make a room feel more airy and light, or for a more warmer feel, a thick tapestry would do the trick.   Make a statement with a quoted tapestry, which would love fab in a teenagers room!

Finally, if your after something that you wish to frame (or not in many a child’s room!) then a poster is the answer.  They are versatile and you can have pretty much anything you want printed upon one.  I love quotes and simplistic posters which I have dotted around our home.   Having a bright, themed poster will also brighten up a child’s room too!
