If you’ve spent money on buying beautiful pictures for your home, you want to hang them where they will both look fabulous and get the right amount – and type – of attention from visitors.
Here are six more ways to display your photos and artwork prints to make the best impression.
It’s often difficult to brighten up narrow spaces in the home, such as stairways and hallways. They tend to be quite dark and dull.
Hanging your pictures on these narrow walls will help create a point of interest for anyone passing through.
According to Homedit.com, photos are the best way of making a small area brighter, as they take up little space and can be hung on any wall.
Fit It In
As long as it is the correct size, artwork of any kind can be used to break up any wall space, however small. Even a tiny patch of plaster above furniture or between doors will look more interesting containing a picture – just make sure it’s not too big, or it will overwhelm the space.
And, of course, big spaces call for big pictures – large prints will look great on a big expanse of wall, making a statement to be proud of.
The Offset Rule
Go against the grain of linear by offsetting your art prints to create a more demanding display. Just ensure the prints still complement each other without distracting the eye too much.
Fine art Giclee prints, such as those available from http://www.river-studio.com/fine-art-printing/fine-art-giclee-printing.php, will look fabulous hung in offset groups.
Mix and Match
Sometimes different is good. If you use different-shaped frames, your picture display will add a level of variety which is as pleasing to the eye as symmetry.
But going too diverse could jar the aesthetics, so keeping the similarity by sticking to one colour may be best.
If you have a high wall – for instance, at the side of a staircase – try to make the most of the space by hanging pictures in vertical lines. Working with the shape of the wall will help frame your frames.
To add creativity to your art displays, hang other objects, such as vintage plates, floral displays or coins in between your pictures. It will add an extra level of interest.
