When it comes to interior designing, the first and the most common mistake we see often is how we hang the arts. Sometimes, it doesn’t looked right, and we don’t know how to fix it. There are several tips that are simple yet effective enough to solve this mistake. Check out the following foolproof tips to help you.
- Just Hang One Artwork at a Spot in Eye Level
Hanging a single art on a wall is recommended. It is simpler to arrange. Defining the eye level position can be tricky sometimes for some people, but you have magic numbers to remember for this. If you hang it above a furniture, your art should be 4 to 6 inches from the furniture surface. Meanwhile, if you plan to hang it above a console or the sofa, your artwork should be at least ⅔ of the sofa or console width. Those numbers should help you to define the eye level as well as the right size and position for the art display. In addition to it, consider the room scale for choosing the right size of art display.
- Consider Multiple Art Display as One
Most people treat multiple art displays as multiple things. This is already the wrong start to design the layout. If those arts are going to be places at the same spot, they are going to be treated as part of a single display. It doesn’t matter if you have two, three, or four arts at once because you need to define the center spot for them all as a single unit. The ideal measurement is to hang them all around 60 inches from the floor. Each of the art should be a few inches apart but not more, and they should be at the center grouping to stay connected.
- Gallery Wall Needs the Right Spacing
First, you should decide on a single theme for all of the art displays. It can be sketches, botanical, or black and white project. However, it is also great to go with different displays entirely for an eclectic style. Use a paper first to layout all of your frames, the big, medium, and small ones. Give 1.5 to 2.5 inches space between the small pieces, and 2 to 3 inches space between the large ones. When you are done with the layout, mark the wall to imitate the layout so you get perfect placement.
As you can see, it doesn’t take too much effort to avoid the most common mistake in display hanging. However, it needs careful planning and placing. Use the tips above and give yourself a decent display at home.
