Wall Decor Basics - Why Buy your Wall Art Online
by Rebecca Schoppet
I thought I would share my personal experience and why I am so excited about bringing this new feature to our readers. In the past I have spent months searching for just the right framed art work to display on my walls. Hours have been spent walking in and out of stores, guessing how a certain piece would look and even more time spent trying to find a frame that would match. Once I discovered the beauty of online art shopping, I was hooked!
Here are some great reasons to shop for your art, prints and posters online:
1. Categorized Prints
In our busy lives most of us don't have the time to spend hours perusing through stores to find the perfect piece for our walls. When shopping online, art, prints and posters are separated by categories that help to easily locate a specific style or genre that fits your home or apartment decor. Some of the categories we thought would be of interest.
2. Grouping Art Prints
Once you find the perfect print, chances are you will need more if you wish to group art in a display. Online shopping can take the guess work out of finding complimentary prints by searching for the same artist. These works usually coordinate well together. On the same page as your selected print or poster, other recommendation are made for corresponding art.
3. Choose your Frame & Matting - See it Live
Once you have selected a print online there is an option to view it displayed in a frame. Since there are numerous frames to choose from, you can simply click and view until you find the perfect one. If you really want to add something special add 1-3 layers of mat board. As with the frame it is another click and view feature. This saves a tremendous amount of time hunting and takes the guess work out of choosing the frame to match your print.
4. Wall Color Selection
This is my favorite feature! By selecting the exact background color of the wall you wish to display the picture on, you can visually see if the your selection looks great. This is one of the most helpful features that saves you the grief of getting the framed print home and finding it just doesn't match the wall.
5. Home & Ready to Hang
If you choose to order your art with a frame, it is wonderful to receive open it and just hang it. If you are a do it yourselfer and order the poster or print ala carte, you will be happy to know that they arrive well packed and ready for mounting.
If you want to try these features I would like to encourage you to visit our New Art & Poster store and enjoy the time saving features it offers!
