Seasonal décor refresh: how to transform your home with canvas prints
By Amy Wright | Nov 22, 2023
Who doesn’t love some new home decor?
Even if you’re not the type to go all out with seasonal decorations, it’s still nice to refresh your home with a few unique pieces, right?
If you’re looking for a simple but effective way to transform your home as the new season approaches, consider hanging a canvas print (or a collection of canvas prints).
Canvas prints are the secret weapon to effortlessly refreshing your home décor each season. They are a versatile and budget-friendly option to transform your space. Learn more about transforming your home with canvas prints in this in-depth guide.
The power of canvas prints
It doesn’t matter if you want to print a wedding photo on canvas to hang in the bedroom or choose an abstract image to add some extra character to your living or dining room. Canvas prints are versatile decorations that work well in any room. Canvas prints are also highly durable and can withstand anything that might be thrown at them.
For example, these prints are easy to clean with a duster or wet cloth, so you can keep them looking as fresh as the day you got them for years to come. They’re easy to store as well, meaning you can swap them out throughout the year as the seasons change.
You don’t have to worry about sacrificing the quality of your photos when you print them on canvas, either -- as long as you work with a reputable canvas printing company like Canvaspop.
Perhaps you like the idea of hanging unique canvas prints that align with each new season, but you also don’t know what kind of images you want to display. If that’s the boat you’re currently in, here is some seasonal inspiration to get you started:
Nothing says spring quite like fresh flowers. If you don’t want to attract bugs or worry about watering your blooms regularly, though, a canvas print featuring some fun florals is an excellent alternative. Whether it’s a print featuring a single flower or a picture of your family surrounded by them on all sides, there are plenty of seasonal options to consider.
For most people, summer is the quintessential vacationing season. Do you have a favorite beach that your family visits every year? If so, maybe you could feature it in a new canvas print. You can also showcase photos from other vacations that were meaningful to you and your loved ones.
Even if you don’t live in a place that has a typical fall season, you likely think of the leaves changing to warm shades of red, orange, and yellow when September rolls around. Why not factor them into the canvas prints you hang during the fall?
Finally, it’s not winter without some snowy wall art. Hang a print featuring a stunning snowscape, for example, or share a picture of your family on a recent ski trip. You can also make the print more holiday-centric by including a Christmas tree, a menorah, or a kinara to celebrate Kwanzaa.
If there aren’t any canvas art prints that match your vision and personal style, you can always make your own custom canvas print for each season. For example, maybe you can print a custom canvas featuring your family at the beach to display in the summer and then swap it out for a picture of you and your partner on a ski trip for the winter.
Creating custom canvas prints doesn’t have to be difficult, expensive, or time-consuming. When you work with a team of professionals -- like those at Canvaspop -- it’s easy to design your own canvas prints and customize them to match the rest of your home’s decor.
Follow these steps to make a personalized canvas print for every season:
Choose a photo
The first step is to choose the photo you want to feature on your canvas. You can upload any photo to the Canvaspop platform and then adjust it to fit the canvas. If you don’t have a specific photo in mind, you can also shop our extensive wall art collection.
Choose a canvas size
Next, further customize your personalized art by deciding on a canvas size. You can select standard sizes like 12x8 or 18x12, or you can pick a custom size to fit a specific space in your home.
Choose your edges
Do you prefer black or white edges? Do you like the wrapped canvas look? How about a frame? Canvaspop lets you choose between all of these options, so it’s easy to pick something that works with your existing decor and personal style.
Add a filter
If you want to add some extra pizazz to your canvas prints, consider adding a filter. Whether you love the black-and-white look or want to turn a favorite photo into a digital sketch, there are plenty of filters you can use to customize your print.
Need a designer?
Don’t let minor imperfections stop you from printing your beloved photos. If you want to get rid of blemishes or remove something from the background of an image, Canvaspop offers editing services to get the exact picture you’ve been envisioning.
Order your print
After these simple steps, you’ll be ready to order your print. Don’t forget that we provide free digital proofs before we print your image, so you can double-check that it looks exactly as you want before it’s delivered to your doorstep.
Where to display your canvas prints
There’s virtually no limit to what you can do with canvas prints. You can hang them almost anywhere in your home to add some extra personality and create a fun focal point that gets your guests talking.
Here are some interior design tips to help you decide where you want to display your prints:
Make the canvas the center of attention
Canvas prints make excellent focal points for your living room, dining room, or family room. If you want your new seasonal art to take center stage, consider ordering a large print and positioning it in a prominent location.
Add a cluster of prints to a shelf or side table
Can’t pick just one photo to print on a canvas? You don’t have to.Instead, why not print several smaller canvases and set them on a shelf or table? The cluster of canvases will still draw people’s attention and get them interested in your seasonal decor.
Consider a gallery wall
A gallery wall features a whole collection of canvases and other prints. You can still make the canvas the primary focal point but add extra interest by including other pictures (either canvases or framed photos) around it.
Don’t be afraid of less-traditional locations
When most people think of places to display canvases (or any other type of seasonal artwork), they think of traditional locations like the living room, dining room, or entryway. You have plenty of other rooms in your house that can use decorations, though, such as the kitchen, hallway, bathrooms, and bedrooms.
Your guide to seasonal prints
Canvaspop offers an array of canvas print options that will spice up your home and make it feel more like it’s truly yours. If you need some extra inspiration, use our shopping guide to find some easy-to-introduce options:
Create a photo collage
A photo collage is a fun way to feature several pictures that are relevant to a particular season. Maybe you can include a few different photos of your kids playing in the fall leaves, for example, or display several pictures from a fun summer vacation.
Hang a triptych print
If you’re looking for a canvas print that adds a touch of affordable luxury to your home, consider a triptych print. Triptych prints divide an image into three separate canvases and make excellent focal points.
Show off your pet
Your furry (or scaly or feathery) friends deserve a spot on your walls, too. If you don’t have any professional-looking photos of them, consider ordering a pet portrait. You can even dress them in a seasonal sweater or bandana to keep the picture on theme.
Add a favorite quote
Is there a specific quote that you love to read when the seasons change? Keep it at the forefront of your mind by printing it on a canvas and displaying it on your wall or shelf.
