Trendy Art Prints: Size Guide

One of the biggest mistake first-time designers make is choose a piece of art that is too small for their overall space. Follow this tip from our Ultimate Wall Art Size Guide to ensure that your artwork is not only trendy, but also fits your wall:

 “Your wall art should take up approximately 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.  Once you have your measurements, multiply them both by 0.6 and 0.75. As a result, you will get the range of canvas print sizes to suit the space.”

Oversized wall art is a massive trend for 2024 Go with this size if you want to really make an impact:

“Choose super oversized wall print 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 perfect size selection for your canvas. These dimensions will make your space look dramatic and appealing while adding a luxury to your space.”

Trendy Wall Canvas Shapes

A top trending wall art layout is the brand-new split-canvas style. While it used to be regarded as a design faux-pas to hang two pieces of artwork parallel to each other, the daring style is now one of the top trends. Symmetry is all the rage right now, so hop on this stunning décor idea.

For an extra-trendy twist, hang a two-piece print from our Definition Wall Art collection. This selection of artwork was curated by our art director, Tirzah Goodman. This take on typography is perfect for any modern interior.

When hanging a multi-panel canvas shape, follow these tips for our guide on how to hang wall art panels the right way:

“Width: For all layouts, we recommend leaving 1" space between each panel for the best airy but tied-together look. If the gap is too big or too small, you will 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 feature different heights. In general, be consistent! For example, if you hang the left panel 3" lower than the middle panel, be sure to hang the right panel using the same proportion. Use your ruler and pencil to measure the ideal height.”

Modern & Trendy Kitchen Wall Décor

If your kitchen is lacking in style, hang a print that pops. A trendy kitchen is imperative to the overall appearance of your interior.

Trendy Kitchen Décor: Pro Tips

Our resident décor expert, Elimar Lobo Sáenz, explains how to execute the top kitchen décor trends:

"First, you need to understand the current contemporary style elements. Contemporary style is known for blending aesthetics with functionality. Highlight strong and sleek forms, minimal accessories, and a clean, open space.

Consider the following trends for your kitchen:

-Simple & geometric: From architecture to furniture, balance the look of harsh, straight lines with few curves. For example - circles, orbs, cylinders, waves, etc.

-Sophisticate Color Schemes: Choosing classic color will allows you lines and shape to take center stage. Also, you can add interest by combining neutral shades with soft pops of color.

-Clean Space: Keep accessories simple, few, and well-chosen. Wide open spaces without visuals obstacles are key."

Complementary Colors: Pro Tips

Elimar Lobo Sáenz shares a final color-specific tip on how to blend orange wall art with other hues:

“Orange and blue are complementary colors, which means you can’t go wrong with this pairing. You can play with these two shades in tons of different ways, including a piece of abstract art! Elevate your abstract print by surrounding it with organic colors like grey and brown, or soft yellows and greens."
