Make Your Canvas Art Look Expensive

Canvas art is widely popular because it costs considerably less than traditional prints. However, just because the artwork costs less, it does not mean that it has to look low cost. Whether you know it or not, you can have affordable canvas art that looks expensive. Learn how you can get the look of expensive art in your home while saving money.

Make a Statement

When it comes to home décor, less is more. The same is true when it comes to artwork. Truly expensive art isn't always available in large quantities. So, for instance, if you have three pieces of the same canvas print, don't hang them all together. In fact, if the print is large enough, you should just hang one of the pieces in the room. Taking a less is more approach can help you make a statement and make the art look like it's a limited print. 

Frame It

Some canvas designs come stretched and ready to hang. However, if you want to make the piece look expensive, you should consider removing the canvas and having it framed. A frame is much like icing to a cake, in that it's not complete without this addition. Choose a frame that compliments both the décor in the room and the colors in the artwork. To protect the integrity of the canvas, let a professional framer remove the canvas for you and install it in the frame. 

Light Things Up

Lighting isn't just for fine art. You can also apply the technique to the canvas art you hang in your home. Lighting is great because it enhances the appearance of the piece. With the right type of lighting design, you can see the structure of the piece, see the richness of the color, and for scene art, you can spot all the intricate details that make up the piece. A ceiling mounted accent light is one option, but you can also purchase a picture light.

Mix Low End With High End

If you happen to be an avid collector and have some expensive pieces in your collection, don't be afraid to add your canvas artwork right in the mix. A low end vs. high-end design style can make even your inexpensive pieces look fantastic. Just make sure the pieces complement each other so that it doesn't look like you have random pieces of art on your walls, as this type of mistake can actually make your artwork look cheap.
