1. Add a new centerpiece to your accent wall
Often times, people get canvas prints in order to add something that really grabs the attention of those entering their space. Big or small, there’s something refreshing about an artform that hasn’t been over saturated by decades of being used (I’m looking at you, painting) and it’s a great way to add a spark of life to your house. One of the best ways to get the full punch out of the piece is to put it on an already accented wall. If one of the walls in your space is a different color than the others, canvas prints are a great way to tie it all into one, central point, and connect it to the rest of the room. By combining both the shades of the accent wall and the walls around it on one canvas, you can create the unity that the human eye loves, while still having a fun, fresh, creative look to your room.
2. Create a conversation starter by hanging prints in unusual locations
Here’s a great thing about canvas prints: they’re really easy to put literally anywhere in your house. Since you don’t necessarily have to even hang them, you have so much more liberty than other artforms to put them in unique, unexpected places, that are sure to catch the attention of anyone who sees them. For example, try putting prints on an indoor balcony railing. Or, if you’re looking for a fun, DIY, art project, attach some canvas prints under a glass table to really elevate your home look to the next level. Regardless of where and how you chose to display your canvas prints, looking for a creative option is a great way to make the most out of your space.
3. Look for something timeless
It’s easy when picking art for your house to look at the latest trends popping up all over the internet and chose to use those. And though there’s nothing wrong with using the internet for inspiration, it’s important to think about the longevity of your design before making an investment. Take, for examples, if something such as butterfly canvas prints have been all over your favorite home decoration websites for the past few months. Yes, they’re pretty, and it does seem like every single person has them, but what do they mean to you? If you can’t think of a single reason why your canvas print absolutely has to be butterflies, then it’s probably time to think of something more meaningful to you. This mentality applies to anything you’re thinking of hanging in your house. It is, after all, your house, so you may as well put something up that will actually mean something to you for years to come.
4. Don’t shy away from corners
Corners. Every single room in your house has them, but more often than not, you’re not using them. Sure, you may have thrown a plant in there every once in a while, but that’s about it. However, corners are actually some of the best places to put canvas prints. You just need to be a little creative. Leaning a print against the corner or placing a print on an easel is a great way to make creative use of that space in your room. Using colors from the surrounding walls and other decorations in the space, you can seamlessly use a canvas to tie the whole room into one central point, while making use of the forgotten spaces in your house.
5. Think about what you want your room to be before you add in a print
Know your space before you chose what type of canvas print you want to go in there. You wouldn’t put the same painting in your bedroom as you would in your child’s playroom, and there’s no reason to treat canvas printing any differently. It’s been proven time and time again that color can play a huge role in how people see a space. If you want your room to be a soothing, therapeutic resting spot for yourself, a canvas print featuring the color yellow would be a great addition. Or, on the other hand, if you’re looking to add a fun, playful, invigorating vibe into your kitchen, a fiery red would be a great way to showcase your space. Regardless of how you want any room to feel, it’s important to recognize that your color scheme can have a large effect on the vibe, and adjust accordingly.
Adding canvas wall art to your house can be one of the most rewarding decorative experiences you’ll ever have. Though there’s so much to consider, there’s no better way to bring a unique, creative, and exciting vibe in to any space. Not to mention, the potential for how you use them is unlimited. With these five tips in mind, we guarantee that you’ll be decorating like a canvas pro in no time. So, get a canvas print today, and start seeing what they can do for you.
