How to Arrange Canvas Prints for Living Rooms

Written By Megan Lewis On 3 Mar 2022

When it comes to arranging Canvas prints for living rooms, be mindful of what you want to convey. The art pieces and how they are arranged is equally important, as together they set the tone for your entire space. So, like all interior design projects, this deserves some consideration, care and creativity to get it spot on.

Your living room is probably the most important room in your home, right? It’s the space where you gather with your friends and family, and where you wind down and end each day. Bare walls can make this special space look cold and clinical. Choosing the right canvas print for your living room and arranging it in a way that suits your style, can go miles in contributing to a welcoming atmosphere.

When it comes to taking your living room to the next level, you don’t have to redo your entire interior to make an impression. Here are three different ways of arranging canvas wall art in living rooms for the greatest impact.

The single oversized canvas wall art piece

The easiest way to spruce up your living room is investing in even a single piece of wall art. Go big or go home – well why not do both! With a low cost and minimal effort, one or more canvas prints can take your living space to another level.

If you’re looking for a piece of décor that will add an extra ‘wow’ factor to your living room, an oversized wall art piece is it. Whether your style is trendy or traditional, large canvas prints can give your living space a whole new look that showcases your personality and sense of style.

The triptych canvas print collection

But, if choosing just one piece of art doesn’t sound like your idea of fun, how about a set of three? A triptych – from the Greek word triptychos meaning ‘having three folds’ – is one continuous scene divided into three frames hung side-by-side. It is a traditional symmetrical wall arrangement so it keeps a formal aesthetic, although has a bit more playful quality to it than the standard single canvas print.

If you can’t bear looking at that sad, empty wall in your living room anymore, then take the plunge and make a memorable statement. Using three frames (instead of one) takes a beautiful landscape image and magnifies it into something larger-than-life on a large living room wall. Smaller areas, like those between windows and doors, are the perfect places to display your more petite pieces.

The gallery canvas print grouping

You can go one of two ways for arranging a gallery wall – symmetrical for an orderly look or asymmetrical gives a more creative and eclectic feel in the living room. It may comprise a grid of four to six pieces or, for an odd number of works, a horizontal row. They may be small clusters of art or large, salon-style gallery walls. Both approaches enable you to mix pieces of different sizes, styles and orientations, as well as frames of different types and widths.

A gallery wall is also a great way to intersperse paintings, photographs and prints with other creative items like wall sculptures, baskets, plates, mirrors and sconces (or anything else you can think of!). You can create a group of pieces or spread them out, depending on how big the wall space is that you’re working on.
