When you were younger, the walls of your bedroom were probably adorned with a series of pretty crumpled posters, which were designed to help you express yourself and feel unique. If you walk into the average dorm room up and down the country, again, you’ll see the walls adorned with all kinds of posters, some of which may look attractive, and some, well, let’s just say they won’t be to most people’s tastes. The thing about all posters however, is the fact that the main reason why you choose to hang them on your walls, is down to the fact that you like them. If you’re looking for ways of sprucing up the interior of your home however, you don’t need to spend a fortune on canvas prints, paint, and other pieces of art, you can instead make use of art posters and other cool posters that you like the look of, and best of all, you don’t need to spend a fortune in the process. Here’s a look at five cool and interesting ways of using posters in your home.
It doesn’t matter whether you go with cheap posters, a world map poster, or any other form of poster for that matter, rather than simply tacking it to your wall, you can enhance the overall appearance of the poster, and the ambience of the room itself tenfold, by simply taking the time to get your poster/posters framed. A frame will transform a poster from a simple print to a work of art, and it will really give the room a more welcoming and attractive feel, whilst making your posters look a great deal more valuable and attractive than they would have looked if left bare. You can choose different sizes, colours, and styles of frame to compliment the poster, and the decor of the room, and once up and hung on the wall, you will instantly understand why framed posters are so much more popular than regular posters.
Create a gallery wall
Again, in order to get the best out of your posters, you will need to get them framed, but rest assured, this does not need to be expensive, and it will be well worth the extra effort. When you create a gallery wall, you basically choose posters that you think compliment one another, and you then simply hang them on the wall as you would see in an art gallery. Art deco posters for example, work very well here because you can create an art deco theme in the comfort of your own living room, dining room, or anywhere else. The great thing about creating a gallery wall, is the fact that, as you can pick up fairly cheap posters, when you feel like a change, you can simply replace old posters with new ones. You can go with animal themes, urban themes, art deco, minimalist, or anything else. It is, after all, your gallery wall, so go wild.
Motivational posters for offices
Nowadays, more and more people are working from home than ever before, and even if you aren’t based at home, there is a chance that you have a dedicated office space in your home that you use for work and other boring adult stuff. To help you make your office/work space a great deal more productive, why not go with motivational posters or math posters instead? Whether you choose motivational phrases, mathematical equations and formulas, or anything else that inspires you, by simply adorning your office walls with a motivational poster or two, your creative juices will quickly begin to flow, and your office will look and feel a great deal more professional and productive.
Colour coordinate with your interior decor
Another great way of really making use of all kinds of art posters is to use them as an accessory for the decor of the rest of your room. If for example, you have a room that is dominated with neutral colours, with hints of, say, purple perhaps, you could purchase a poster or two, that contains neutral colours and various shades of purple, and you can then use them to add colour to your room and to function as a decorative accessory.
Have a feature poster
If you really want to push the boat out and get adventurous, you could opt for a giant feature poster, which would dominate a feature wall, instantly drawing your eyes to it as soon as you enter the room. A giant framed world map poster, for example, would look absolutely fantastic with the right decor, and it would provide a great talking piece and centrepiece for whichever room you choose to hang it in.
