Types of Coffee Wall Art
These are essentially high quality posters which have been printed onto paper. They are then framed to protect them from wear, which in turn makes them far more visually appealing and smart in style. Subject matter can range from typography to more infographic esque material.
Canvases these days are mostly printed with a giclee effect, so that popular designs can be reproduced en masse while still giving the effect that the material has been painted by hand. Once printing is complete they are then wrapped around a wooden frame to stretch the material out and give them some security. Canvases will often come in sets of three or four so that you can create certain aesthetic effects in your home depending on where you place them
Giving a kind of 3-D effect to your wall, these sorts of metal hanging sculptures will usually come in coffee cup designs and are akin to having some kind of coffee-themed coat of arms displayed on your wall.
Generally coming in slate or tin materials, these pieces of wall art are usually quirky riffs on adverts and cafe signs, designed so that you can get a retro look for your home.
Things To Consider Before Purchase
If you’re buying a print or canvas, it might be an idea to purchase one that already has a frame. This will save you the trouble of searching for a frame later on with the correct size and security for your print
It’s a fact of life that some materials are more durable than others and things like canvases are going to have a far smaller lifespan than a tin sign. Materials like canvas are also far more exposed than a framed print or metal sign and so are going to be more susceptible to damage, especially if they accidentally get wet or are handled improperly.
Remember, this art isn’t going to levitate itself onto the wall by magic and so you’re going to need to fix it in place once you’ve purchased it. Plenty of these pieces come with included hooks and attachments designed to make this an easy, ready-to-go experience, as otherwise, it’s off to the local DIY store for some of your own!
Obviously, the most important thing to consider is the size of the piece you buy. You need to think about where it’s going to go on your wall and how much space it’s going to take up. Make sure to measure your walls and to take note of how much space you’ve got to play with and then pay close attention to the dimensions of a piece before you buy it.
If you don’t have the greatest taste in the world or are buying the art as a gift, it’s important to think about the colour scheme of the piece itself in relation to the room it will be placed in. Coffee art tends to be in brown colours, so it preferably needs to be in a neutral coloured room to avoid ugly clashes.
