ON AN EMPTY WALL
Your wall art should take about 60% to 75% of the available empty wall space, the portion not covered by moldings or furniture. Measure the height and width of the wall. Now, multiply the measurements by both 0.6 and 0.75. As a result, you will get the range of canvas print sizes to suit the space.
IDEAL FOR THE HALLWAY: 36"X75"
Large wall art that measures 36 inches by 75 inches in height and width can create a polished, classic look in your hallway. This wall art size works well in long hallways as well as over your entertainment area.

Pro Tips: Feng Shui
“The entrance to your home is super important when it comes to Feng Shui. Your front door is the main channel for positive energy to enter your space. You should not block the area positioned directly in front of the door, or good energy won’t be able to effortlessly flow in and out. As you open your front door and step inside, your home should have an ample amount of space. You want this area to feel airy and open, so positive energy can fill your entire house.”
