Posters are becoming an increasingly popular interior design element. And this is mainly due to the high quality of prints that most of today’s manufacturers offer. How to choose posters for your apartment? In this article we answer this question.
The simplest and most effective option for decorating the walls in the apartment are posters. With a huge selection of themes, you can easily change the interior of any room and give it individuality
The main function of posters is to highlight the interior of a room. They can really liven up the apartment and make it more suited to your taste. The final effect will largely depend on how you choose posters and where you hang them. So how do you choose a poster and incorporate it into the interior of your apartment?
Not every poster will be equally suitable for every room. You must try to take into account the atmosphere of the room. An abstract will be quite suitable for placement in the hallway or living room, as long as the color scheme and style match the rest of the room, and for the room of a young man a picture of a car or a motorcycle will fit. On the other hand, in the bedroom calm floral motifs, landscapes, still life, Japanese motifs or posters with a slight erotic touch will work. Battle scenes and aggressive themes, which introduce a state of anxiety and tension, are not suitable for this room
The first step is to choose a color palette according to your personal preferences: do you like color posters or black and white? The latter are more suitable for equally monochromatic interiors. When deciding on color photos, follow one of the proven selection criteria:
When choosing a poster for the wall, it is worth thinking about the theme
Popular themes include:
If the poster is relatively large, it should be placed on an equally large wall, without additional posters hanging next to it. The wall at a distance of 20 cm from the furniture and the corner of the room and 40 cm from the ceiling should remain free. Otherwise, the poster will look too big for the room, i.e. a bad choice.
If you have several small posters, it is worth combining them into a composition. It does not matter if they are in a different style and color. In this case, you can put them in frames, but the frames must be the same – then the composition will look consistent. In the center you should place those posters that you would like to focus on.
