Whether you're living in a large family home or a one-bed flat, artwork is the one thing that can transform your home from dull and dreary to vibrant and fun, with minimal work and effort.

And where large paintings used to be a symbol of wealth, now art prints are a means of injecting your personality into your home and setting the mood for your room scheme. 

But prints can be costly, too, especially if you want to create a gallery wall and need to buy lots of framed artwork in one go.

You can get expert advice on sourcing artwork for your home and placing it perfectly on the latest episode of the Real Homes Show – but don't miss our list of the best online stores to buy amazing designs; you won't believe how little they cost if you know where to shop. 

Each store below has hundreds of prints, but we've selected the cream of the crop to save you a little time. Whether you're a cute animal fan or you're hankering to fill your home with positivity and inspiration, we've got you covered.. 

1. Best for cute animal artwork - I am FY

Altogether now... awwww! Seriously though, how adorable are these?! Whether you're looking to revamp your kid's room or you just want to embrace your inner child (no judgement here), what could be more fun and gentle than these designs? There's something so innocent about a giraffe in a balloon tutu, and who wouldn't want a little bunny looking over their baby (insert heart emoji)?

2. Best for geometric artwork - King & McGaw

If you're going for a large print that you want to be able to see from a distance, bold and brilliant geometrics are a great option. King & McGaw has all the boxes ticked. These striking designs are colourful and fun, yet wonderfully simple. Perfect statement pieces.

3. Best for photography - Desenio

There's nothing more inspiring than the world, its natural forces and ornate architecture. Desenio has an abundance of photographic delights, looking at the planet from unusual and thought-provoking angles. The Parisian shot below is so elegant, we just wish we were there too...

4. Best for plant artwork - Junique

If you're a renowned plant killer and you can't stand the collecting of dust on faux foliage, the range of plant prints at Junique could be your way of bringing the outside in. We're loving the fun collage effect, too.

5. Best artwork for feel-good positive vibes - Society 6

It's amazing how your surroundings can effect your mood, so by adding a splash of bright happy colours and positive motifs (such as sunshines!) you can lift your spirits immensely. These striking designs really caught our eye, and are perfect for a hallway or landing, where they will make you smile every time you walk past.
