A big question I get asked is what is the ideal art size above a king bed. The answer is often subjective, but the best starting point is to keep your finished piece (the edges of the canvas or frame) between 60-80% the width of the furniture it’s hanging over, and I tend to like it closer to the 80% mark.

Ideal Frame Size Above King Bed

For the standard 76 inch wide king bed you should consider art that is between 45 and 60 inches wide. So if you’d like to hang a framed piece take a look at #3 (32×40 print in a 40×48 inch frame) and #4 above (40×50 print in a 50×60 inch frame).

If you’re looking to hang a canvas then consider #3 (40×50) or #4 (48×60) above.

Or if you want to hang a pair of images or a gallery wall, treat the whole thing as one piece that’s between 45 and 60 inches wide.

 

 

Ultimately it’s your own personal preference, so use these examples as a starting point, and if you’re still not sure you can even experiment by taping paper to your wall to see what works best in your room.

    Hi! Thanks for this very helpful post. Do you know where one can order a 40×50 canvas? Can’t seem to find that large of an option on most websites. Thank you!

      Hi Jess! I’m really not sure, I’m a photographer so my lab prints and stretches my canvases. Did you try Dick Blick? At that size you may have to stretch your own. Let me know how it goes!
