How High Should a Large Canvas Be Hung Above a Bed

This can be a difficult question to answer, as it depends on a number of factors, including the size of the bed, the size of the canvas, and the style of the painting. Generally speaking, a large canvas should be hung at least 18 inches above the bed to allow enough space for the painting to be seen clearly. If the painting is intended to be a landscape or exterior scene, then the canvas should be hung at least 24 inches above the bed. If the painting is intended to be a portrait or interior scene, then the canvas can be hung lower, depending on the size and style of the painting.

The width of a large canvas to hang above en-suite bed should be at least two-thirds the length of the furniture below it. If you have a Queen bed, for example, the ideal width of a canvas to hang above your bed would be one meter. To find the correct length of the art, divide the width of the furniture by 0.66. If you don’t have a queen-sized bed, you can hang a smaller piece of art.

If you’re looking for a large canvas to hang above a double bed, a 24″ x 36″ piece of art can be an elegant centerpiece on a gallery wall. It also works well as a single large photo or as part of a gallery wall. You can even use a large canvas to hang a large family portrait. Large canvases add character and a unique touch to a bedroom.

The ideal size of a large canvas to hang above king-sized beds should cover sixty to seventy percent of the wall space. Be sure not to place the piece over moldings or furniture. The blank space you’re trying to fill should be three to four feet by six inches. By following these rules, you’ll be able to get the perfect size canvas print for the room.

Size of a framed print

What size is too small to hang over a bed? A 16 x 20 print is tiny, so a 20 x 24 frame would be too small to hang above a queen bed. A 40 x 50-inch canvas would be almost too big and would look awkward over a king bed. However, if the size isn’t important, try an oversized canvas print, Check out the post right here.

Conclusion:

The ideal size for a framed print over a bed depends on the width of the bed and the artwork. A king-size bed is about 60 inches wide, so an artwork should be between forty and sixty inches wide. If you’d like to group two or three pieces of art above the bed, choose the medium that’s half to two-thirds the width of the bed. Regardless of the size of the frame, it should be at least two-thirds the width of the bed.
