If, like the rest of the nation, you’ve been staring at the same four walls a lot more than usual lately, you might be craving an update that will liven them up. Fortunately, there’s never been a better time to find affordable prints online, with hundreds of websites offering big, bright and beautiful pieces for surprisingly small prices.
With this in mind, here are seven of our go-to shops that we turn to whenever we’re adding to our gallery walls – whether your signature interiors style is sleek and simple, quirky and unique or cool and classic, we suspect there’ll be something on their pages that will have you hitting ‘add to basket’ quicker than you can say Command strip.
Best for: illustrations
Formerly our favourite online stationery shop, Papier just branched out in to the world of homeware with a collaboration with English-Italian artist and designer Chiara Perano, known on Instagram as Ciao Chiara. Her pieces, starting from £48, are all inspired by the Dolce Vita lifestyle, with prints dedicated to her favourite aperitifs and other wider joys of sun-soaked travel. If you want to hang a little slice of holiday in your home all year round, you can’t go wrong with these beauties.
Best for: Instagrammable gems
The Insta interiors set loves Fy, and for good reason – there are literally thousands of millennial-friendly designs to choose from, and with seemingly never-ending discounts and promotions running, you can often snap them up for under £10. There are also dozens of varying sizes available, so if you’ve got a pesky gap in your display, you’ll find something to fill the sweet spot here.
Best for: abstract prints
Monochrome lovers, Desino is your spiritual home – its array of affordable prints has a heavy Scandi influence that leans towards chic, muted colour palettes. We particularly love the line drawings of faces and figures, which will amp up the elegance in any room in the house.
Best for: bright and contemporary
Juniqe has something for everyone, but we’re especially smitten by its colourful botanical and geometric pieces. Browse its trending collections and you’ll find edits including Colour Pop and Pantone Colour Of The Year to help you fill your home with whatever end of the spectrum you wish.
Best for: making a statement
For bold, stylish typography, it can only be OB. Its sleek slogan prints are the stuff of contemporary interior design dreams, with feelgood mantras like ‘It’s cool to be kind’, ‘I came to boogie’ and ‘Go get ’em, tiger!’ up for grabs. Hang them in pride of place and they’ll make you smile every time you see them.
King & McGaw
Best for: classic art prints
If you know you want a Warhol or love the idea of a Penguin book cover hanging in your hallway, King & McGaw is the site for you. It’s not the cheapest of the cheap (prices start at around £70 and the average is £120), but with a wealth of modern and museum archive pieces to choose from, you know that your investment will never go out of style.
Best for: personalised pieces
Because there are so many sellers on Etsy, this is the perfect place to find niche prints that really speak to you on a personal level (like this Harry Styles ‘Adore You’ illustration, for example). Invest in a travel poster for your hometown, find a customisable design that relates to your family or delve into the depths of your favourite fandom, from Harry Potter to Disney.
Best for: infographics and charts
Want affordable wall art that will actually teach you something too? Head to Kunskapstavlan, which prides itself on providing design that conveys knowledge, and you’ll find posters featuring everything from recipes to washing symbols to zodiac signs, plus some seriously cute prints for kids rooms, too.
