Framed Laundry Room Art vs Unframed
Once you’ve chosen the design of your eye-catching print, consider whether you want a framed or unframed piece of wall art. Luckily, we have an entire guide to help you decide! While unframed artwork can give your laundry room a modern look, framed prints look more classic. Follow these tips from our article on framed and unframed canvas prints:
“A framed canvas looks like a single panel canvas, but this wrapped artwork features a third layer. The thick wooden frame that creates the illusion that the art is floating. A framed canvas lends gives your space a refined touch. In addition, the solid black border frame keeps the focus on the artwork. A framed print is typically what you see hanging in a gallery or a museum. A luxurious and low-maintenance choice, there are several benefits to this tried-and-true layout.
An unframed canvas is artwork that is not set into any frame. Because of frameless borders, these canvases can adapt to almost any style. Versatility is key when it comes to current décor trends!

Beyond Laundry Room Wall Art: Pro Tips
ElephantStock's interior design expert Elimar Lobo Sáenz shares her tips for a practical and stylish laundry space:

A Cohesive Color Palette
An easy way to give your laundry room a modern look is to choose a unified color palette. Start with a neutral base and then add subtle pops of color for contrast. You don’t have to create a space that is completely void of saturation, but you should take care in choosing colors that elevate your space rather than overwhelm it.

Laundry Room Art Sizes
When selecting the perfect canvas size to spruce up your laundry room, peruse our Ultimate Wall Art Size Guide:
“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 a range of canvas print sizes to suit the space.
For instance, if your blank wall is 9 feet tall and 5 feet wide, multiply 9 by 0.6 to get the low end of the ideal height range. Then multiply 9 by 0.75 to get the high end of the ideal height range. Do the same for your wall's 5 feet width. The ideal height of the canvas would be 5.4 feet - 6.75 feet and the ideal width would be 3 feet - 3.75 feet.”

Laundry Wall Art Shapes
You can choose between a single or multi-panel canvas. While a single-panel print is sleek and classic, a multi-panel set is modern and trendy. If you decide on a multi-panel layout, follow this guide to properly hang your laundry room artwork:
* Width: for all layouts, we recommend leaving 1" space between each panel when hung, for the best airy but tied-together look! If the gap is too big or too small, you'd lose the effect of the split canvas.
* Height: the height of the rest of the panels depends on the layout you selected. Some layouts are symmetrical, and some layouts resemble a wave and feature different heights. In general, be consistent! For example, if you hung the left panel 3" lower than the middle panel, be sure to hang the right panel in the same proportion. Use your ruler and pencil to measure the right height!
