What size is right?

Like with fashion, it all depends on your style and preference but if you need some inspiration, here are some rough guidelines when considering what size to go for.

An 8x10 inch print, although doesn't look wrong hung on a wall, it's relative small size means it works best if you are considering including it in a cluster of photos or having it as part of a small vignette. e.g. brightening up a small nook in the guest room or kitchen. An unframed 8x10 inch print is perfect to send as a gift.

11x14 inch and 16x20 inch prints look great alone if hung in a small room such as the bathroom. Or if hung as part of diptych or triptych these sizes would suit being hung over medium to large pieces of furniture such as as a sofa or a bed. 24x30 inch prints are brilliant for statement pieces hung alone.
