You may have seen a lot of artwork or photos displayed on canvas. Canvas prints are a popular way to decorate coffee shops to libraries, offices to lounges, and everything in between. Not only do they look great, but they also provide a unique and personal touch to the décor. Almost anything imaginable can be printed on canvas, mounted, and hung on a wall. Here are four reasons they are so popular.

Canvas Pictures Pull the Décor Together in a Room

Sometimes, pictures or images don’t quite fit together when decorating. But with canvas, they are all printed on the same material which brings them all together as long as they fit with the room. This look can be developed even further if you choose to custom frame canvas. Most sizes of canvas can be framed using a floating frame. It’ll provide a nice modern look with a traditional feel. Almost any photo can be printed on canvas. Your family’s trip to the beach can enhance the décor of a bathroom. Photos of your garden can be decorative in your kitchen.

Canvas Prints are Customizable

There are some standard sizes for photo canvas. Most standard options for canvas prints are 8×10, 11×14, 18×24, and 24×36. Choose to hang a larger size to highlight a picture. You may want to choose a 24×36 canvas if your goal is to create a visual draw. But you are not limited to standard sizes by any means. You can print pictures on 8×8 or 96×54 canvas if you want. It’s up to you to select the size that fits your space.

Canvas Pictures can Be Grouped for Impact

With a little planning, you can group canvas pictures to add visual excitement to the décor. The key to pulling it off is for it to be well planned. Now, you can purchase a wall hanging template from a craft store, but you can also make your own. You’ll need some painter’s tape to mark out your grouping. This gives you a good idea how the images will fit together once they are on the wall.

Canvas is for More than Camera Shots

While you can get some great images with your smartphone, you are in no way limited to just smartphone photos. Canvas prints area way to truly express yourself. A few ideas for creating customized canvas prints include:
