3 Tips for Hanging Wall Art in Your Home
3 TIPS FOR HANGING WALL ART IN YOUR HOME
Wall art displays, if done right, can really pull a space together and create that perfect finishing touch. Get it wrong and it just sort of looks like a hodgepodge of "stuff" thrown up without rhyme or reason. Follow these design tips to make sure your wall art compliments and completes the room.
1. Choose appropriately sized wall art. Too small, and it just looks silly. If you have several smaller items, you can always group those items together so that the overall size of the grouping equals a larger and more appropriate size for the wall.
Here are some specific guidelines to help you choose:
2. Hang your art at the right height. Too high and the proportions will be off. Too low and viewing the wall art will be uncomfortable. One rule of thumb is to hang the piece where the center of the art is 145cm or 57 inches from the floor. This doesn't always work if there is a piece of furniture against the wall or perhaps you are hanging a piece over a mantle. In these cases, you may have to use your intuition a bit to get it just the right height, taking account the other objects (furniture, mantle, etc) in the room.
3. Perfect the proportions. If there is a lot going on in a room, opt for one larger statement piece. This will help the room look less cluttered. If you have several smaller pieces you'd like to display, consider grouping them together as a collage for a more cohesive display.
