5 Ways To Use Canvas Prints To Display Artwork In Your Home
The decoration of your home is essentially a reflection of your personal sense of style. From choosing the interior design and color of your walls, to selecting the furniture and adding all kinds of accessories, your main goal when decorating is to create a comfortable and happy home. So whether you are moving into your home for the first time or just want to spruce up the place, there are many small but important upgrades that will give your home a new look.
Canvas art is one way to give your decor a chic and timeless look. In general, art brings a whole new vibe to a room that goes from joy and excitement to passion and drama. In particular, canvas prints look great on any wall, but due to their uniqueness there are countless ways to display them in your home. So, in this article, let’s take a look at five of the most creative ways to show off your favorite piece of art that will complement your home in every way.
Create a focal point: A basic principle of interior design is that every room in your home needs a focal point. This is a design element that will instantly grab your attention as soon as you walk into the room. Your canvas prints are a great option to be that focal point that will definitely beautify your living space.
For example, if you have a brightly colored accent wall in your living room, you can display your print on it to give the room a new vibe. Especially if you are one of those people who love to experiment with different colors and textures on their walls, your canvas print will look even more beautiful and bolder if displayed on a wall with different shades and patterns. Also, don’t rule out the space above your fireplace to display a piece of art that will definitely be the first thing you notice when you walk into the room.
Decorate your shelves: Shelves are available in many styles, often with edgy details that create a modern look. These shelves are usually decorated with books, plants, souvenirs and photographs. However, displaying your canvas print will be a great addition that will give your place a stylish look. In fact, shelves are very useful because you can rearrange your art however you want without adding holes in the wall. Also, you can overlay these artwork so that it is related by color or theme. Or, if you want to create a more daring look, you can contrast the color of your canvas print with the main theme of your room.
The goal is to create visual interest for you and your visitors. Finally, following the rule of three of including one piece of art and two smaller decorations on your shelves is another creative way to display your canvas.
Create a gallery wall: The beauty of gallery walls is that they can run along your staircase, in your bedroom, in your living room and most often in your hallway. A gallery wall basically consists of many photographs that are creatively arranged on the wall. So, between all these photographs, you can add your new canvas print that will bring character to your living space. You can even decide if you want all the photos to be the same size.
If you want to mix sizes up, displaying your oversized print in the center will stand out and bring more vibrancy to your home. Another thing you can do is create a theme. Usually, it is recommended that you select colors for your print that match the tone of the room where you want to display it. This way, everything will look well put together and give a cozy atmosphere.
Hang prints in unexpected places: When it comes to hanging your art, you are allowed to break the tradition of displaying on accent walls. A very original way to show off your favorite prints is in these forgotten corners of your home. You might have decorated them with a tall plant or a newspaper rack, but why not hang up your designs and make the most of the space. However, your corners aren’t the only place in your home where you can display your prints. For example, have you thought about decorating that white space under your stairs? Building a chic layout with your canvas prints here is a unique way to give your hallway a new look.
Plus, if you have a fireplace in your living room that you don’t use, you can tilt your prints and make the space look eclectic. The key is to find the least used spot in the house and make it stand out.
Mix different styles of wall decoration: If you want to take it a step further and be original when hanging your canvas prints, you can do that by choosing an accent wall in the room and mixing it with different types of wall styles. These standout pieces can definitely transform the look of the wall and add visual interest to your room. For example, you can display your canvas print in the middle of the accent wall and around it, you can add different sizes of family photos in hanging frames, wall carvings or antique pieces such as plates with different colors and prints.
The key is to be creative and find different ways to combine your canvas prints with other wall hangings. So, if you are looking for both a stylish and playful look in your living space, mix up different styles of wall decor to reflect your personal taste.
You no longer have to worry about how to hang your artwork. Decorating your home with canvas prints is a great way to show off your creative side. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to display your favorite artwork. From creating gallery walls with asymmetrical arrangements to mixing different artistic styles, choose the one that best matches your true self. If you can’t seem to come up with anything, be sure to keep these five ideas in mind and get the most out of your canvas prints.
