Photo Wall Art: Spruce Up Your Home Without Decorating

In any property, it’s great to have expansive wall space to play with — but sometimes there can be a bit too much to handle. Perhaps you have a wall that’s looking a little lonely, or a certain room that could do with a touch more personality.

Either way, photo wall art is a saving grace when it comes to filling up the extra wall space in your home. With the creativity to design and create something tailored to your taste and aesthetic, there’s not much room for error!

What is wall art?

Wall art can simply be defined as anything decorative that holds a place on your wall. From decals and stickers to accessories and tapestries, the options are endless. However, our favourite style of wall art is photo wall art

A piece of photo wall art can exist in many different forms, be it a canvas, a framed print, or an aluminium print. Don’t worry if you’re not sure what their differences are — we’ll make sure you’re familiar with our personalised wall art collection by the time you finish reading.

The benefits of wall art in the home

Other than being aesthetically pleasing, personalised photo wall art provides many benefits for homes and properties. 

An opportunity for personalisation

If you’d like to make your house a home, personalised wall art is an excellent way to start. Each homeowner will have their preferred style and taste, and wall art offers you the chance to showcase this across your property. Whether you wish to showcase your travels across the world, your growing family, or your loyal four-legged friends — there’s a type of photo wall art for everyone.

Create moods for different rooms

Photo wall art is extremely effective for creating different atmospheres in certain rooms, adding an extra layer of comfort and personalisation. For instance, in the kitchen, you may wish to showcase bright and bold prints to evoke a happy, collaborative atmosphere. They could even complement your personalised placemats and chopping boards.

Alternatively, you could turn your bedroom into a calm, serene space with balmy sunset landscapes and cool colour tones. There’s lots of room for experimentation.

Make your rooms shape-shift

Perhaps you have a room that feels a little too big and daunting, or maybe you have a smaller room that you’d like to accentuate. Did you know that wall art can help you create visual illusions regarding room size?

In small rooms, a piece of large wall art — such as a canvas — can help to create an illusion of depth and space. Why not display a favourite landscape image as a canvas triptych? In contrast, a series of small photo prints can break a large room up, creating distinct sections while retaining a sense of order and coherence. 

If you’d like to make your wall space feel wider in an area such as a dining room or hallway, try arranging your wall art horizontally. Similarly, if you’d like to create a sense of height in an area with a low ceiling, try placing your wall art vertically. Take a step back, and you’ll see the difference!

Experience the acoustic benefits

Photo wall art, especially when printed on canvas or any thick material, can contribute to better acoustics within a room. Try putting your canvas wall art in a space with a high ceiling and watch it absorb the sound, reducing any irritating echo. This could be particularly useful in areas used for conversations, such as dining rooms or living rooms.

How to choose your preferred type of photo wall art

Now you know the numerous benefits of personalised wall art, it’s time to choose which type would work best for you and your property. Looking to make a statement? Or are you focused on creating a tailored atmosphere for each room? No matter what your goal is, there’s a type of photo wall art in our collection that’s suited to your purpose.

Let’s take a closer look at their differences, their advantages, and where you’d use these different types of wall art.

Poster prints

The easiest way to put your favourite photos in the spotlight is with a poster print. It’s a budget-friendly way to create an eye-catching display. You can print a single image or opt for an array of best-loved snaps — the choice is yours!

We can create poster prints in either landscape or portrait orientations, with an array of sizes available, including A3, A2, and A1. Printed on Fujifilm Satin Inkjet Paper and starting at just £5.98 per print, it’s the go-to option for high-quality wall art for a low price.

Acrylic print

Acrylic photo prints are renowned for their ability to enhance vibrant, high-resolution images. If you’d like to display portraits of your loved ones or landscape photos from your travels, an acrylic print is the best choice for making your photos stand out. With that being said, black-and-white photography and abstract art also present beautifully on acrylic prints, too.

Our acrylic prints are expertly produced by our skilled UK-based technicians, turning your photos into crystal-clear prints of precision and beauty. We do this by printing your chosen photo on Fujicolour Crystal Archive Digital Paper Type DPII, known for its wide colour range. You can even choose your preferred finish from the choice of lustre or gloss. Then, we back the metal subframe of your acrylic print with a 1mm white Foamex panel for support and elegance — so you can hang your wall art effortlessly.


An alternative to acrylic prints, high-quality canvas prints offer a unique and artistic style to any interior space. If you have photos with visible textures such as close-ups of natural elements, or urban-focused scenes with detailed architecture, you may find that these photos work better as a Premium Canvas Print. This is because the canvas’s texture can enhance your photo’s tactile effects. The same goes for any paint-like images. Photographs with a more artistic, brush-stroke quality are well-suited to canvases as the texture offers an authentic, art-like feel.

To do this, we use water-based ink to carefully preserve the quality and vibrancy of your chosen photo, and it is then stretched around a solid pine wood frame with your choice of dimensions, from 8”x10” to 20”x30”.

Aluminium prints

If you’re looking for photo wall art with a more modern style, aluminium prints are where it’s at. What’s more, they’re also incredibly durable due to their sturdy composition. Their sleek, metallic surface can add a touch of contemporary aesthetic to any space within your property. UV printed on a 3mm aluminium panel and you can choose from a square, portrait or landscape orientation. Your photo print will even arrive ready to hang, with an included wall fixing.

Aluminium photo wall art works best for abstract and texture shots, as the aluminium sheen can accentuate the details of your chosen image. If you have some macro photography shots that you’d like to display, aluminium is highly effective for highlighting the intricate details of flowers, insects, and other everyday objects, offering a sharp, clear and striking alternate perspective.
