I'm pretty sure the art in my house outnumbers the family photos by at least two-to-one at this point. Like, cute baby pictures and wedding portraits included. But I really can't help it. Ever since I discovered a few places online that sell original works and recreations at an unbelievable price, it's like I've been on a mission to transform my home into a mini-Louvre or Tate Modern.

So, if you're looking for affordable art that you can have shipped straight to your door, just know that you're in good hands. I've done my research time and time again (to say the least), and these are the 10 best places to go when you want to update your space without breaking the bank.

Starting at $19

I like my art so colorful and full of life that it practically leaps off the canvas, and I've learned that the best source for something like that is GreenBox. They've partnered with more than 300 artists to create mini prints, mural decals, stretched canvases and more that are vibrant and a touch whimsical. (Seriously, just look at this stunning, sage green image of monstera leaves and protea flowers by artist Karin Grow.) Unframed art prints start at just $19, mini framed canvases start at $30 and large stretched canvases, like what you see above, start at $50. If you use our exclusive code, HGTV15GBA4X, you can even get 15 percent off your order now through September 1 at GreenBox and their other brands, Oopsy Daisy and Wheatpaste.

For prints with a lot of personality, I like to go to Society6. They have a vast selection of original works by independent artists from around the world, and a lot of it tends to be pretty trendy or cheeky. (Though you can definitely find beautiful landscapes, abstracts and travel posters if you look for them.) For example, check out this vintage-inspired print that reads, "That's the spirit." With its punny statement and illustrations of craft cocktails, it would make a fabulous addition to your kitchen or bar cart. And since Society6 is always having a sale, you can often score something for as low as $10.

Whether you're setting up a nursery or moving your little one into their new "big kid bedroom," you'll want to use Oopsy Daisy to find cute, age-appropriate artwork. They have a piece for every theme, from mermaids and princesses to robots and transportation, and they even sell growth charts that you can customize with your child's name. This rainbow bear, with its sweet image and soft hues, would make a darling companion to a small bookshelf or changing table. And, like GreenBox, Oopsy Daisy's prices start at $19 for unframed prints, $30 for mini framed canvases and $50 for stretched canvases.

If you're someone who likes to swap their pieces out every few months (I know I do), Etsy is a great option because they offer instant downloads for as low as $2. After you find an image that speaks to you, you'll pay a small fee set by the artist and receive a digital file that you can print right at home. It's easy, super affordable and will connect you with countless one-of-a-kind pieces, like this single-line portrait of a woman. Personally, I'd love to see it on a vanity or dresser.

And if you have a teen on your hands? You can take their bedroom up a notch with a little help from Wheatpaste. Though bright and playful, their pieces tend to be a little more mature, so they'll grow with your child and perhaps even follow them to college or their first apartment. This print of a pool and cabana is a great example because its abstract nature gives it some serious staying power. And, just like GreenBox and Oopsy Daisy, Wheatpaste's prices start at $19 for unframed prints, $30 for mini framed canvases and $50 for stretched canvases.

They might be well-known for their cute Christmas cards and romantic wedding invitations, but Minted is — at its heart — a marketplace for independent artists. So it's no surprise that they have an amazing collection of fine art prints, from photographs to illustrations. You can even filter your search by theme, color scheme and medium. Most pieces, including this watercolor painting of Venice, seem to start at about $25 for a 7"x5" and give you the option to frame them for an additional $14. Not too shabby.

If you're looking for large, ready-to-hang artwork that you can display over a fireplace mantel or sectional, then Wayfair is going to be your new go-to. They have a huge selection of statement pieces, from charming country landscapes to trendy photographs of Scottish cattle, and many start at just $40. This simple sketch of a sleeping dog would look lovely in a living room or study and would make the space feel oh-so-cozy.

If you've ever taken a leisurely stroll through the aisles of Target, then you already know that they have an adorable kids' section. But what few folks realize is that their online department is somehow even better. Here, you'll find hundreds of colorful canvases, framed photos of baby animals and even sweet, scripted signs just like this one. Most pieces start at $10, and the pricier ones tend to come with frames, which just saves you time and money in the long run.

Lulu and Georgia is proof that sophisticated art can be affordable; you just have to know where to look. They have prints, including recreations of famous paintings, for as low as $30 and allow you to filter your search to specific price ranges and mediums. For example, you can snag this elegant impressionist painting by artist Edouard Manet, which depicts a Parisian street after the end of the Franco-Prussian War, unframed for just $117.

Some things are just too good not to share, which is why I'm going to let you in on a little secret: Anthropologie is an amazing place to go for pre-framed, vintage-inspired artwork. Every item in their collection, from small watercolor scenes of Paris to large tapestries, tells a story and will infuse your space with a sense of history. Even this detailed portrait of Cuban architecture by Lydia Marie Elizabeth seems like something you'd spy in a treasured family album. Expect to pay anywhere from $100 to $300. (Which, for the record, is much cheaper than an actual antique.)
