Have you seen the canvas print wall décor in the latest magazines or or favourite coffee shop? Canvas prints look great in any room and add a unique personal touch. Let’s talk about how pictures on canvas make your photos and artwork really pop.
1. Pictures on canvas can pull a room together. Since the pictures are printed on the same material, you can get away with printing pictures that don’t quite go together as long as they fit with the room. This trick will go even further if you have the canvas framed; most canvas sizes can be framed with float frames for a modern look or standard frames for a traditional feel. Think about what pictures you might be able to print that fit the feel of a room – pictures of the family trip to the beach for the bathroom, pictures of your garden for the kitchen…
This wall could really use canvas prints!
2. Canvas prints come in several sizes, so there’s the perfect one for every body. 12″ x 16″, 16″ x 16″, 16″ x 20″, 20″ x 20″ and 20″ x 30″ are the sizes to chose from. Hanging a larger size such as 20″ x 20″ and 20″ x 30″ will create an immediate visual draw, so if you have a picture that you really want to highlight, larger sizes may be the way to go. However, should you be limited in terms of space – your pictures can of course be printed on one of the smaller canvases. Luckily we’ve got a great selection to chose from, so you’ll find the exact size that fits your space.
Large pictures on canvas really make a statement.
3. Pictures on canvas can be grouped for impact. Seemingly random (but actually well-planned) picture hanging adds visual excitement to your canvas prints. The key to this is planning how the grouping will look once it’s on the wall. Check out this diagram from a day of play for unique ideas. Craft stores sell wall hanging templates, but it’s easy to make your own. Use painter’s tape to mark out the grouping.
Playing with symmetry and asymmetry can have amazing results
4. Pictures on canvas aren’t limited to photos from your camera. This really lets you express yourself. Here are some ideas to get started:
Old family photos (what better excuse to get around to scanning them?)
Graphic Design or Quotes on Canvas
Collections of your art photography
Collections of your children’s artwork
Public domain artwork (artwork that is not copyrighted)
Many public domain works found on the internet are too small to print on canvas, but some photographs and documents out there are in high enough resolution to print.
