How to choose and hang your canvas art
If you're looking for a way to add some personality and style to your walls, canvas prints are a great option. Canvas prints are high-quality images printed on durable fabric that can be stretched over a wooden frame. They come in various sizes, shapes and designs, and can create a stunning focal point in any room.

But how do you choose the right canvas print for your space? And how do you hang it properly on the wall? Here are some tips to help you out.

1. Choose a canvas print that matches your style and theme. Think about the mood and atmosphere you want to create in your room, and pick a canvas print that complements it. For example, if you have a minimalist or modern decor, you might want to go for a canvas print with simple shapes, geometric patterns or abstract art. If you have a more traditional or rustic style, you might prefer a canvas print with landscapes, flowers or animals. You can also choose a canvas print that reflects your personality, hobbies or interests, such as travel, music or sports.

2. Choose a canvas print that fits your wall size and shape. You don't want to overwhelm your wall with a canvas print that is too big or too small for it. A good rule of thumb is to leave some space around the canvas print, about 6 to 12 inches on each side, depending on the size of your wall. You can also use multiple canvas prints to create a gallery wall effect, but make sure they are spaced evenly and aligned properly. You can use a tape measure or a level to help you with this.

3. Choose a canvas print that has the right colors and contrast. You want your canvas print to stand out from your wall color, but not clash with it. A good way to achieve this is to choose a canvas print that has some colors that match your wall color, and some colors that contrast with it. For example, if you have a white wall, you can choose a canvas print that has some white elements in it, but also some bright or dark colors that pop against the white background. You can also use color theory to help you choose harmonious colors for your canvas print and your wall.

4. Hang your canvas print at eye level. The ideal height for hanging your canvas print is at eye level, which is about 57 inches from the floor to the center of the canvas print. This way, you can enjoy the view of your canvas print without straining your neck or looking up or down. To hang your canvas print at eye level, you need to measure the height of your canvas print and divide it by two. Then add this number to 57 inches and mark it on your wall. This is where you need to place the hook or nail for hanging your canvas print.

5. Hang your canvas print securely and straight. You don't want your canvas print to fall off the wall or tilt to one side. To prevent this, you need to use the right hardware and tools for hanging your canvas print. Depending on the weight and size of your canvas print, you might need one or more hooks or nails, a hammer, a drill and some anchors. You also need a level or an app on your phone to make sure your canvas print is straight. Follow the instructions that come with your canvas print for hanging it safely and correctly.

And that's it! You've just learned how to choose and hang canvas prints on your wall like a pro. Now you can enjoy the beauty and charm of your new wall art and impress your guests with your decorating skills.
