Abstract Wall Art: Pro Tips

ElephantStock's interior design expert Elimar Lobo Sáenz explains the importance of abstract artwork in a modern home:

“Nothing elevates the look of a room quite like abstract art. Abstract wall art is a symbol for freedom, and it complements a wide range of home styles. This creative style of art work will add a trendy touch without overpowering your interior. It’s up to you to choose between a print with bold colors, or modern, muted neutrals. Make sure your piece is big enough to act as your main focal point, and don’t be afraid to play with crazy, conceptual design ideas.”

Minimalist Wall Art Shapes

Choose a canvas shape that will make your space stand out. We’ve broken down every layout into categories to help you pick the best shape for your unique taste:

Combine classic and contemporary: The Single-Panel Rectangle or Single-Panel Square

Minimalist art for narrow spaces: The Single-Panel Vertical Canvas or the Single-Panel Panoramic Canvas

Modern modern modern: The Triptych Tri-Panel Canvas or the Symmetrical Five-Panel Canvas

Be a trendsetter in more ways than one: The Split Two-Piece Canvas or the Four-Panel “Wave” Canvas

Nobody does eclectic like you: The 7-Piece Hexagonal Canvas Set

Technical Tips

If you’re leaning towards one of our multi-panel options, follow these tips to hang it like a pro:

* Width: No matter which multi-panel layout you choose we recommend leaving 1" space between each panel. This will create an airy look that is still cohesive and tied-together. If the gap is too small or too large, you can lose the visual effect of a multi-panel canvas. 

* Height: The height of your canvas panels depends on which layout you selected. Some layouts are meant to be hung symmetrically, and some layouts resemble a wave or another abstract shape. In general, be consistent! For example, if you hang the left-side panel 3" lower than the middle panel, be sure to hang the right panel using the same proportions. Use your ruler and pencil to measure the right height; don’t eyeball it!

Large Minimalist Wall Art Sizes

Consider making a statement with oversized minimalist wall art. These dimensions were pulled from our Ultimate Wall Art Size Guide to give you some solid size ideas:

“If you’re inspired to create a gallery wall above your sofa or headboard, the best size is 52 inches by 32 inches. Hang asymmetrical canvases, and arrange them symmetrically create the perfect, dynamic look on your wall.

If your main goal is to create a focal point, go with these dimensions: 66"X33" This is the ideal option for starting an oversized gallery wall. Add a statement piece to any room that has a large, empty wall. Just make sure to measure the space before installing your canvas, as this size can look overwhelming in a room with smaller walls.

Looking for something really dramatic for a large empty wall? Go with 68"X45"! Select a giant, oversized canvas that measures 68 inches by 45 inches in height and width. If you want to cover the entire wall above your couch or bed, this is the right selection for your space. It makes your space look dramatic and appealing while creating a luxurious vibe.”

Minimalist Art Prints by Room

While minimalist wall art can suit almost any room, we’ve broken down the three most popular rooms for simple prints.

Living Room

Your living room is the largest communal space in your home, which means it should have a eye-popping print to match. This is a great opportunity to hang a statement piece with unexpected abstract shapes and colors.

Dining Room

Stick to a sleek minimalist print in your dining room. You want to create a calming, sophisticated atmosphere. Soft shades and clean lines are ideal.


Try out our “Minimalist Typography” collection in your bedroom for an inspiring touch. This collection is fun, light-hearted, and perfect for a more personal space.

Minimalist Canvas Art Colors

Because the subject matter of minimalist artwork is simple, you can choose almost any color without overwhelming your space.

Blue Wall Art: Pro Tips

Totally stumped on how to build your color palette? ElephantStock's interior design expert Elimar Lobo Sáenz shares her tips for a foolproof blue color scheme:

 “Interior designers voted bright blue as one of the top interior design trends for 2021. Using richer blues or incorporating lighter blue textiles will give to your space a serene “Santorini” vibe. If you’re a minimalist at heart, pops of dark, true blues can bring a vivid touch to your room. Incorporate this unbeatable hue into your decor as a constant reminder of clear skies above.”
