When it comes to interior design, choosing large canvas prints can make a big impact! Check out our handy guide to extra large wall art. Choosing the perfect size format for your canvas print can make the difference between run-of-the-mill interior decor and a fully realized design statement. So when you’re buying canvas prints, you need to think about the size of your room where your print will be displayed. A photo canvas is a natural focal point for any room. That means large canvas prints can make a wonderfully striking impression, but it also means they can be a bit too dominant in a small room. But no need to worry, because we’ve brought you some handy tips on when to choose large canvas prints! In this article: When to go big How large is large? 5 factors to take into account How to do a DIY preview The Golden Rule of Wall Art Size The golden rule here is: the bigger the canvas print, the bigger the impact. That means that in a decent-sized room, a large canvas print can be an absolute knockout. But in a more confined space, the same size format can crowd out the rest of the decor and feel a bit overpowering. Meanwhile, a smaller print can be perfect in a cozy room, but can look a bit lost in a big expanse of wall space. Though one solution here is to get several small canvas prints. You can display them in a “gallery wall” arrangement and get creative with the interplay of imagery, color and composition. But if you’ve got a big room and you want to print just a single image, our advice is – go big! How Large do Canvas Prints Get? Here, on CanvasDiscount.com, we can make pretty big canvas prints – our largest format is a positively majestic 40" x 60". Invest in a showstopper like that and you’ll have a ready-made statement piece! You can check out our full list of canvas formats here. Note: most of our prints come with the option of a special additional Premium Frame, but this isn’t available for some of our very biggest formats, so check the list to make sure. 5 Steps to the Ideal Canvas Size So which canvas size is the right one for you? Of course, you’ll always have to go by instinct here to a degree. But following these 5 steps will help you out: Think about the size of the room. You’ll want to take into account the volume of the room, not just the square footage of wall space. A room is a three-dimensional space after all! Size up the piece of bare wall where your print will hang. Think about how big a print the space can accommodate without feeling cluttered. Pay attention to the furniture and fittings. If you’re going to display your print above a bed, couch or fireplace, getting the size and positioning right can bring wonderfully striking results. Don’t forget about the image orientation. Our prints come in both “portrait” and “landscape” orientation. Portrait prints are better suited to taller, narrower spaces. Give your prints some room to breathe. How much space will be left around the print once it’s in place? We recommend a gap of at least 6-12 inches between your print and other features such as the ceiling, doors, wall fittings, etc. Another thing to bear in mind: at CanvasDiscount.com you can order a Premium Frame (an additional decor frame outside the inner wooden frame) with your canvas print. This won’t just make it bigger – it will make it more prominent and imposing too. So you might want to adjust the size accordingly if you choose the Premium Frame. Preview Your Canvas Before Ordering It is possible to get a sense of how your print will look before you order. And there’s no advanced equipment required here – all you need are some Post-it notes and a tape measure! Using the notes, just mark out the corners of a canvas-sized rectangle on the wall. Then step back, judge the size – and then keep making little adjustments until the size and position feel right. Large canvas prints can transform your interior design. If you’ve got a decent-sized room where the decor feels underpowered, nothing beats a large canvas for making a bold design statement. So just use our sizing tips – and a little bit of intuition – and we’re confident you’ll never look back!
