Make your home more beautiful with wall decorations

This month I had the pleasure of ordering different kinds of wall decorations and I’m going to briefly introduce you to each of them now. I don’t want to say too much about them though as in this case the pictures literally speak for themselves. I can only recommend that everyone has their own four walls decorated with their very personal favourite photos, giving their home its own unique charm. Or surprises their family and friends with their own little work of art, perfectly coordinated to suit their home.

With the large range of products from ifolor, I found it difficult to choose and to restrict myself to certain wall decoration models. In the end, I opted for an HD Metal Print, a photo canvas, a Gallery Print and an aluminium Dibond wall decoration. Each version in a different size. At the start, I didn’t really quite know what to expect. Except with the canvas, I couldn’t really imagine what the photos would look like. It was therefore a fantastic surprise when the packages arrived and I was able to unpack each one. I liked each wall decoration in their own way. It’s quite difficult to choose a favourite one. But my two favourites are the HD Metal Print and the aluminium Dibond version. With the HD Metal Print, I liked the elegance of the thin metal sheet and the extreme sharpness of the picture. With the aluminium Dibond version, I’m really impressed by the matt surface. 

All the photos come with a pre-assembled wall bracket, which is invisibly attached to the back of the picture and which keeps the picture a certain distance from the wall. This is a brilliant mechanism which gives the picture more effect as it appears to be floating on the wall due to the shadow the frame casts giving it more depth and therefore presence.

1. HD Metal Print

I wasn’t familiar with the HD Metal Print at all beforehand, but it impressed me straight away. The photo is incredibly sharp and the colours are bright! As a result, this wall decoration is particularly suitable for motifs in intense colours with rich contrasts. The photo is printed on a 1.1 mm thin metal sheet, which I really like. It makes the picture look light and elegant. The surface has a lacquered appearance, so it’s shiny. In a very bright room with lots of windows I would perhaps not hang the picture up right opposite a window as the surroundings may reflect in the picture. I ordered the HD Metal Print in 60x60 cm format. Two additional hangers are supplied free, giving you total freedom when hanging it up.

2. Photo canvas

For the canvas I chose a photo that could also very easily be a painting. As the flowers are given a similar artistic touch to a still life thanks to the canvas’ structure. The picture is stretched over a real wood frame and printed on thick canvas. The colours are matt and there are no reflections in the picture as a result. Different layouts are available on the website and in ifolor Designer so you can also create great photo collages. I ordered the canvas in 30x30 cm format. Two additional hangers are supplied with this wall decoration.

3. Gallery Print

The Gallery Print is a 3 mm thin aluminium bonded panel that has an equally think acrylic glass plate stuck on it. The photo is directly printed onto the acrylic glass which gives the picture spatial depth. My photo of the Donut in a mountain lake is perfect for a print on acrylic glass as the acrylic glass is superb for reproducing the water textures. To that effect, the acrylic glass naturally reflects a bit, which means I would not place the picture right next to a window. The Gallery Print is a bit thicker than the HD Metal Print and therefore also heavier. This print is also top quality and the colours are vibrant! I ordered the Gallery Print in 40x40 cm format.

4. Aluminium Dibond

I was most curious about the aluminium Dibond wall decoration! I also ordered it in full size (75x100 cm) and made sure that I chose one of my favourite pictures, a sunrise in the Dolomites. This is shown off really well in a large format. And wow! There it was! It looked bigger than I imagined but that isn’t a problem. I think it is stunning! I love the matt surface. It doesn’t reflect anything and picture reveals its full glory without any reflections. Due to the matt surface it’s not quite as sharp as, for example, the HD Metal Print but it also doesn’t have to be in my opinion. I’m not going to up to it really close to count the pixels but want to let the whole picture work its magic on me from a bit of a distance.
