How To Choose The Right Canvas Size Photos For Your Home

Choosing the right canvas size art photo for your home can be difficult. Depending on the space you are trying to fill, different canvas sizes are unique in shape and style and offer different viewing angles promoting either a larger or smaller space definition adding flow to your home. 

I absolutely love canvas art and prints. I order them online from reputable sites such as Canvas Factory because of the quality of work and options available to me in choosing the size I want, colored borders, framing and even custom prints which are fantastic.


Over The Sofa

If you are choosing a canvas size for over the sofa the rule of thumb is to make the size almost as large (length wise) as the sofa itself. This creates a large framed image above the sofa for a dynamic wall entrance into your most comfortable space in your home. A good size recommended is at least 5′ x 3′ feet. 

Over The Bed

Over the bed follows the same rule of thumb as over the sofa, except with some more versatility. There are many more options available for your bedroom. You can choose larger and smaller prints to create a wall, rectangular prints and even split canvas to break up space. You can even choose a smaller size and use wall words to even out the area making it appear larger. The possibilities are endless.

Photo Wall

With thousands of art prints to choose from, a photo wall is one of the most popular walls to create in any home using canvas prints. I love creating a photo wall as I feel it adds a touch of personal warmth, along with the memories showcased for times you wish to look back on and remember and share with others. 

You can create a stunning wedding collage. Gifts for mom or dad. Take your Instagram photos and stretch them onto the canvas. The possibilities are endless. It’s why I love creating and using canvases in my home. I feel each image created adds depth, personality and warmth to any space I’m trying to create whether it be in my kitchen, living room or bedroom. Canvases are the way to go!
