How To Use Dark Mode On Canva

Do you want to change how Canva appears on your end? Or do you prefer a darker-colored theme when using an app? Either way, you can switch to Dark mode on Canva whenever you want. Follow our step-by-step guide, and we’ll cover everything you need to know about themes on the app.


By default, Canva uses a light-colored theme on its web and mobile app. While the light color makes it easier for people to navigate and use the app, we understand that not everyone prefers this type of theme.
