Great pictures can bring a room to light – the trick is to hang them for maximum impact.
Don’t hang your pictures too high. You need to work out where it looks good from all angles. If you are sitting at the dining room table, you should hang your art at eye level for best viewing.
Keep your artwork in proportion. Large pieces should be on display where you can step back and appreciate the art, or on stairwells where you can get distance through height.
Pictures should be smaller than adjacent furniture.
Small artwork alone on a large wall is not preferable. Cluster small artworks or use them to decorate small narrow sections of wall space.
Family photos or lots of little pictures can be grouped together to make one large display. Have a theme to your frames to create cohesion e.g. a variety of family photos in different timber frames or create random patterns with mismatched frames.
Handy tip: Lay your pictures on the floor so you can play with the layout before hanging.
For a more formal look, line your pictures up horizontally or vertically or in a group of 3. Odd numbers tend to work best with sets of pictures.
Your artwork is a feature - use a dedicated spotlight to show it off or place a lamp next to your work.
