Add your own style and personality to your home with some tips on how to decorate your walls with artwork. Before you start, though, keep these arranging and hanging guidelines in mind.
Make sure the artwork is at a good height. Most people tend to hang art too high. The center of the art should hang around 60″ to 65″.
If you’re decorating with several pieces or creating a grouping then you need to plan your arrangement. Start by placing the pieces on the floor and moving them around until you find the grouping that you like the best.
Try different grouping styles. A traditional method is the symmetrical art arrangement. Draw an imaginary line down the wall then mirror the arrangement on each side. Then there’s the salon style arrangement where you position your most prominent in the center, eye level then work around that central piece.
Once you’ve found your arrangement that you like, cut out shapes of paper equal to the size of the items that you want to hang, then use painter’s tape to place each paper shape on the wall in the arrangement you created on the floor. The tape won’t damage the wall and you can make sure your design is what you want before you put nails on the wall.
Mark each paper template at the place where your nail will be needed to hang the corresponding item. Pound nails into the wall through the paper templates at the marked spot, hang your artwork and enjoy.
