A multi-panel art piece can be one of the most eye-catching and riveting works of décor in your house. However, it needs to be done right. You can’t just hang anything up in any area of the house. You want it also to match the feel of your house. If your style is big and bold, then your split canvas art should reflect that. Maybe the rest of your home is calm and relaxing, and you want your canvas to be a source of tranquility.
With so many options out there, it can also be confusing to pick the right size, formation, and panel style. That’s why we’re here to guide you and give you some much-needed split canvas inspiration.
Let’s dive right in!
Amazing Split Canvas Inspiration Ideas That You Will Love
If you can get your multi-panel canvas prints just right, they could be the center-piece and main attraction of your rooms. Without further ado, here’s some split canvas inspiration to get your creative juices flowing.
Choose High-Quality Photos
Choosing high-quality photos should be the obvious first step, but we see a lot more low-quality pictures than you’d expect. The general rule is that the bigger the picture file, the better it’ll appear on your custom canvas print.
Most places will recommend that you go with a DPI (dots per inch) of around 300. You can access this data from the ‘image details’ on your phone or computer. You can sometimes get away with as little as 150 DPI, but it’s best to just stick with 300 for the best results.
Choose Splits According To Your Picture
A typical 3-way horizontal split won’t work for a photo that was taken in portrait. You would be better off choosing another picture if you want that design or changing your panels. You could go for a 4-split panel with one big canvas on the left and smaller ones on the right.
Make sure that the picture flows— this is the most important thing. You don’t want to end up with a canvas where your dad’s nose is cut in half. We recommend getting a cheap print first and cutting it up to see how it flows. Don’t be afraid to get creative!
If you’re looking for some split canvas inspiration to understand what type of panel formation to use, you can find some here.
Choose a Picture That Means Something
Nothing stops you from hanging a contemporary flower picture up on the wall— it will undoubtedly look pretty. However, it just doesn’t have the same level of personalization and meaning as, for example, a picture from your family’s last road trip.
We would suggest that you always go for pictures and art that means something to you. If there is a piece of abstract art that you saw on your first date with your wife, put a copy of that in your home!
Even if you don’t fancy yourself a photographer, we are sure you have photos on your phone that you can’t stop looking at. Print out your favorite photos and proudly display them in your home.
Measure Out Your Space and Go Big
One idea that we love is to fill almost an entire wall with a large-scale split canvas print. Especially if you’re renting and don’t want to deal with the hassle of wallpaper or painting, canvas art is a great way to get the pattern or photo you want quickly and easily.
Most canvas prints are lightweight and can be hung up quickly with a level and small nails. They are easy to switch around when you want to and can be hung in any room of your house. Just measure out how much wall space you have, and don’t forget to include the area in between the prints. Then you can decide how large your images should be.
Large scale splits are also great for home offices or office spaces in general. They are an inexpensive option to add a statement to your wall, and they can be ordered in just a few easy clicks. You don’t have to commission an artist or photography, simply upload the photo you want and let your print do the hard measurement and printing work for you.
If you are a little more creative than the average Joe, there are lots of free design sites and software out there to help you design your own art piece for your space. Use meaningful imagery as we mentioned above, or create a bright and bold graphic piece to compliment your style.
