7 METHODS FOR CHOOSING WHICH IMAGES TO Printing FOR YOUR HOME
Over the past month I established a goal to print some of my work and use it to decorate my home. As professional photographers, we spend our time and skills to build up our skills so that finally we can create artwork! I love to think of prints as the icing on the wedding cake. After all of the hard work, there is nothing more worthwhile than finding your images in print and exhibited as art!

Smaller artwork is simpler to come by, it's easier to store and it's really generally cheaper - so most folks have far more small stuff, which works great if you have a snug bedroom, or a cramped hallway. However in an expansive room with high ceilings? Not so much.
Think of the wall membrane around a bit of art as part of the art. You want it to be a natural expansion of what's there. If the art's too small, it will be confused by the emptiness and go away - and it will give off a timid and helpless vibe. If it's too big, it will feel like a giant wearing too-small slacks - also not a good look.
For large places, there are several alternatives: the foremost is simply looking for larger pieces of art. The second reason is to choose something that isn't a framed image (more about this below). And the 3rd is to use several works of art in combination with each other, to produce a larger piece.
With high ceilings and large surfaces, a small piece of artwork above the bed simply won't do.
For example, in my home, the bedroom (pictured above) has vaulted ceilings that reach 17 legs in height. A little dinky framed thing above the foundation simply wasn't heading to lower it. I needed something bigger.
Choose a Kind of Artwork That Works
Fine art isn't simply a framed print or poster. There are very a few other decorative choices you may make. For example, buying a wall-mounted shelf and putting figurines or vases on it can be considered a great way to decorate a larger space using collectibles that you curently have. Or, getting aggregate designs to take up a more substantial space can work well, such as this Umbra Wallflower arranged - check out their site to get more options.
Other choices include mounting ornamental plates in a row, adding a large mirror or using decals - that happen to be surprisingly hip and often look good. Have a look at WallPops!, for some ideas.
When deciding what you want to put up a wall structure, it's okay to think outside the box. A big framed picture is often the least interesting (and frequently priciest) choice. (Though, for my bedroom example, I chose three 16"x20" framed images - pretty orthodox.)
Choose carefully what you may spend your money on
Be cautious the material you need and you'll be always right
The material something is constructed of isn't only a synonym of quality, but efficiency, health and sustainability.When you are heading to buy something, once again, we have to be cautious and consider what are the ideal materials and which benefits they can offer us.
One example are the furniture manufactured from fiberboard vs the solid wood furniture. At the beginning, they could look virtually identical but, after a while and you use them, the fiberboard ones started to get bended, the coatings get started to look bad while, if you buy wood, it might be more stable and can stay in perfect conditions for years. Your house, it was created to last for a long time, isn't it? If you too have small children or you know that your home can get easily filthy, it is vital to be practical: materials like goblet, marble for your kitchen or floor tiles instead or parquet flooring can be considered a far more convenient option. Lastly, we have also to think which materials encourage us and also, what suggests to buy them: as I have said before, if you order a door to a carpenter, this door would be unique and, probably, the lumber employed to build it would result from more honorable and ecological resources than an commercial one.
You can even choose lasting products as the qualified woods or the recycled spectacles. This way, you are not only adding to make the world more lasting, but the materials you are going to have at home is telling a tale: before it was a tree, but in its place another tree has been planted to keep the forest the same. This lamp fixture was before a wine glass bottle that, if recycle, it was likely going to get rid of as silicon for highway pavement. This little details are the ones that produce your house adornment unique.
It's apparent that almost all of us do not have money to burn up. Likewise, I'm sure that sometime you did a compulsive acquisition only to feel different and, time later, you regretted it. It happens to all or any of us. That's why I let you know that it's far better to buy with conscience not to repent later our impulsive options when you feel down.
The tip I can give you is the fact that, when you are heading to buy, think how much what are you going to use this object, if it is going to be useful inside your home and, although there is no need tons of money, not to focus on the price but in the quality of what you are buying. If it's something you really need, it is best to buy something with quality even it means doing and investment or not buying other activities. Once more, what counts is that you are happy. Keep in mind also that you get what you purchase.
Moreover, do not forget the energy of your money. When you get something, you are aiding an economic model or another. Big brands or assisting local businesses and business people.
