Choosing art for your walls can be tricky, especially if you live in an apartment. Most artwork doesn’t fit in the space you have, and even when it does, it often doesn’t match the decor of your space. There are two main categories of art to choose from: canvas or wall hanging art. When deciding which one is best for your home, look at these three options and make sure to consider what they’re made of, how they fit in your space, and how they complement the room’s decor.

What Are Different Types of Canvas?
When you decide it's time for cool art on your walls, your first question is often: what kind of canvas? There are a variety of styles, from stretched canvases in beautiful designs and paintings with an engraved surface. Here are some options that will help you choose the perfect cool artwork for your apartment or house.

**Hanging canvases: **These are typically standard size and come pre-stretched in various sizes (and sometimes colors). When it comes to using this option, all you need is a basic framing kit, which most stores will offer right next to the shelves with this type of product. One fun option that is trending lately is using two different canvas prints, one below another. This adds depth and draws attention upwards as people pass by your art.

What’s the Difference Between Textured and Glossy?
Choosing between textured and glossy canvases is a matter of personal preference. Textured canvases are traditionally artist-grade, which means they have a natural canvas weave that can add an element of texture and depth to your home’s wall art decor. Glossy canvases are made with high-quality papers and offer a smooth, glossy finish.

What Is A Stretched or Framed Canvas?
Art is meant to be appreciated, which is why it’s important that you display it on a stretched or framed canvas. There are many ways that this can be done and some can take some time and effort on your behalf, whereas others may require no more than a trip to the local DIY store.Β 

Which Material Will My Image Look Best On?
Wall art decor can be hung on any type of wall, but there are pros and cons to each material. Fabric is lightweight, great for large artwork, and easy to hang with clips or tacks. But fabric can tear if it isn't secured properly. Wallpaper is easy to install and inexpensive, but it does have a shorter lifespan than other materials. Wood has a natural look that creates an instant focal point in your room, but it can be expensive depending on the type of wood you choose. Glass is heavy duty and durable, however some people don't like its reflective quality since it takes away from the piece's original colors.
