Canvas prints are growing in popularity as an alternative to traditional printed and framed photography. Regardless of your home decor style or your personal taste in art, there is little doubt that everyone wants to express their style in the best way possible. Canvas prints offer you a way of styling your home by displaying not only fine art prints, but also personal photographs in a truly beautiful way.
If you're revamping your home decor and you want to take your style up to a new level canvas prints are the way to go. Here are just a few reasons why these prints make such an impact.
Home is Where the Heart Is
A house doesn't feel like home without personal photos - whether they are of friends, family, pets, or even local spots in your town. They serve as reminders of loved ones, important life events, and show pride to guests.
Since smartphones have allowed for the average person to take decent photos at any given time, chances are more people than ever have personal photos they would like to showcase. Canvas prints are the perfect medium for showcasing personal photography, both self-taken and professional work. You can easily edit your photos to your liking and send them to be printed onto whatever size canvas you'd like.
Art Should Speak for Itself
True art should speak for itself and be able to stand alone. While traditional framed art does look beautiful, the use of heavy frames and the glare of glass can sometimes detract from the art you are trying to showcase.
The look of canvas is beautiful and makes any art, whether an art print or a photograph print, look like traditional painted work. It looks fresh and the lack of glass means the piece looks stunning at any angle and in any room, even a brightly illuminated living room.
Sizing Options Allow for Creativity
Interior design with canvas prints have fewer limits than traditional framed hung art. Canvas Press creates prints in an incredible size range, from 8" x 8" up to 54" x 96". This means regardless of the space you are trying to fill you can order your custom print with the most appropriate dimensions.
If you have a large blank wall over your living room couch or your bed and you're unsure of how to decorate it, an expansive print with a beautiful design of your choosing is an excellent way to go. The lack of frame and glass makes large canvas prints blend in more easily. Smaller sized prints are perfect for small rooms, such as guest bathrooms. You can also combine small prints in a grid pattern instead of one large piece or surround a medium size print with smaller prints.
Durability and Lightweight is Key
Traditional framed art is heavy to say the least, especially with large art pieces. Wood or metal framing and glass can be much heavier than expected, not to mention far less forgiving to damage. There is nothing worse than accidentally breaking a frame or cracking glass.
Canvas prints are incredibly durable, as the canvas fabric has more give than paper (i.e. posters or paper prints). There is little chance of puncturing or otherwise breaking a canvas print when care is taken. They are easier to move around and typically even one person can relocate quite a large canvas print without help. The lightweight nature of canvas also means you can mount these prints easier than traditional art, which means require multiple hooks and fasteners, especially for those large, heavy frames.
Affordability Offers Versatility
Affordability is often an important factor in home design and many are aware of how expensive frames for art or photography can be. Canvas prints are more affordable and this means you can get more versatility from them.
For example, swapping out certain art for seasonal pieces isn't very affordable with traditional framed images yet it simple to do with canvas prints. Also, if you're experimenting with finding your own style for your home you can experiment more easily with canvas prints, thanks to being able to print custom images in a plethora of different sizes. Canvas is just as ideal for the seasoned home interior decorator as a young adult designing their first home.
Canvas prints for interior design are a no-brainer if you want to enhance the look of your home and better highlight your personal style. Putting your trust in a company like Canvas Press ensures that there are no limits to how creative you can get and that the prints you receive will be high-quality, showcasing your art for many years to come.
