Modern Wall Art Layouts

If your goal is to achieve a modern sleeping space, the layout of your décor is just as important as the color scheme and style. Wall art can be a super easy way to add blue to your bedroom, as well as giving it a contemporary touch. Consider an unframed, multi-panel print in a trendy layout like a two or three-piece print. While framed artwork can look sleek and chic, unframed canvases are undeniably modern. Here are some of the pros of an unframed canvas, from our expert guide on choosing the perfect artwork for your vision:

Ideal for a Large, Empty Space

Do you have a lot of space that features a clean, large, empty wall? If so, an unframed canvas artwork can be a super-easy statement piece.

No Distractions from the Artwork

While frames can sometimes distract from the artwork itself, an unframed canvas keeps the art the center of attention.


Our canvas prints cost less when compared with the framed option, making it a more affordable choice to stick within a tight decorating budget.

Bedroom Wall Décor Size Guide

Selecting the best blue wall art size to hang above your headboard or adjacent to your bedframe is essential when creating a designer-inspired space. Follow these tips pulled from our ultimate wall art size guide to make sure you pick the best dimensions for your bedroom:

“If you’re choosing wall art for a predominantly empty wall, your wall art should take up about 60% to 75% of the available empty wall space (the portion not covered by moldings or furniture). The first step is to measure the height and width of the wall. Next, multiply the measurements by both 0.6 and 0.75. As a result, you will get the best range of canvas print sizes to suit your unique space.

Wall art that you want to hang over furniture, such as a fireplace, a bed or a couch, should be between 2/3 and 3/4 of the furniture's width. To measure the ideal art size above your furniture, consider this example: If your couch is 6 feet wide, multiply it by 0.66 and 0.75. You would need a canvas between 3.96 feet and 4.5 feet wide to fit impressively above the couch.”
