Hanging ArtLove art?
I know that I love art and I often guilt my husband often into buying great pieces for me! However, that only works like once a year since "great" art usually comes with a not so great price. :( We'll we are here to let you create beautiful art at real "great" prices! Now the problem, how to hang all of this artwork, and yes it is art because you are all artist!
Here are some tips on how to make your art look professional!
1. Your art should be at eye level. People tend to want to hang their art higher up so as not to interfere with other pieces in your home, ie: lamps or furniture. The general rule is the the middle of your painting should be around the 5'7 mark.
*Now rule one doesn't work if you are grouping multiple pieces together, as you'll have varying heights, but your main piece that you are building off of should follow this rule.
2. Art that is too small, can cause a wall to look cluttered and busy. Rule of thumb if it is smaller than 8x10 it would work better on a accent table or credenza.
3. Not everything needs to be centered, spaced evenly or the same size! Make sure you have vertical, horizontal and square pieces, to be pleasing to the eye. Have a few bigger pieces , as well as a few smaller pieces to help round it out on your wall.
4. Make sure to have variety. You don’t want all the same style of paintings, add in some impressionistic with some abstract and bright graphics will add depth to your collection. Another point is do not group all of your dark paintings with one another.
5. So final step when starting your project start with your biggest piece, and work out from there leaving roughly always the same 2-3 inches from each painting.
Now go get painting so you'll have more to hang!
