How To Choose The Right Canvas Size For Your Space

If you are looking for something to add color or decorate your room with, there are a number of options such as canvas prints, framed photographs or paintings. These artworks will add more to a simple room and will most probably turn out to be the focal point of the room. The challenge lies in choosing the rise size that will fit the space you have. Here is a simple guide in choosing the right artwork size for your room:

  • No matter the type or size of the room, when it comes to artworks, the mantra “bigger is better” always applies. If you know an interior designer personally then they are the best person to ask regarding the size of the décor you want to add. One common mistake homeowners tend to make when choosing artwork for a specific room is that they chose a smaller size. Art is an investment and once you have purchased one, it should be able to fill the room, not make it look emptier in the process. Consider the height of your ceiling. If you have high, vaulted ones then a grand artwork is best while a low ceiling will be able to accommodate a landscape artwork. Just keep in mind that you can never go wrong with big.
  • Consider the wall where you are going to hang the artwork. Measuring it is not enough. You should also choose the type of art that will fit with the orientation of the wall. If the wall is tall and narrow, choose a canvas print or painting that is in portrait. If the wall has a horizontal orientation then the artwork should be oriented the same way. For the space, the artwork should fill about 2/3 or 3/4 of the entire wall space.
  • Looking for a place to hang your painting or canvas art print is not an easy decision. Keep in mind that the artwork should be 3/4 the size of the furniture in the room and it should be hanged on top of it with a distance of 6 to 12 inches in between.
