Decorating a kid’s room can be time-consuming. And depending on what you have in mind, they can be expensive as well. So it’s no surprise that most parents have resorted to doing the redecorating themselves. Good thing canvas prints make the job easier.

Kids have different tastes. Canvas prints make it easier to pattern a room’s design after the child that’s going to use it. Because canvas prints are cheap to produce, you can replace them as often as you want.

Here are some tips you could use when designing a room using canvas prints:

Use Photographs



One way of personalizing a room through canvas printing is by blowing up a prized photo of your kid, whether by him/herself or together with the entire family. Not only would these turn into fabulous, timeless pieces, they’d make great conversation starters whenever you have company over for dinner.

Scan Early Artworks of Your Child

It’s only a matter of time before your little angel starts letting his/her imagination fly and come up with a few artworks worth treasuring. Rather than sticking them in the fridge, why not scan a few of them and have them printed? Not only would they last longer, they’d also be a great gesture as to how much you believe in your child’s creativity.

Hang Canvas Prints of Your Kid’s Favorite Characters


Of course, what your kid would most likely appreciate is a picture of his/her favorite character. Think of his favorite children’s book, cartoon show, or TV personality. Having one or two of these can help stimulate your child’s mind which is conductive to his/her development.

Print Custom Designs You Made


You can also put your graphic design skills into good use by making an artwork for your kid to see every day. It’s something your kid can bring with him as he grows old and even pass it on to his kids when the time comes. It’s better than buying random artwork that eventually loses its value as your kid won’t likely have any sentimental attachment to it whatsoever.

Whatever the case, canvas printing gives you a chance to have fun with redesigning your kid’s room rather than making it a tiresome affair. For more tips, check out some of our posts.
