Your Cart is Empty

We can definitely say that buying art, paintings, attending at photography events or exhibitions, is the easy part. However, when you believe you already have all the artwork you need to decorate the walls of your home, this is when the hard time is arriving. With so many different artworks, how can you make sure they will fit each room? Where should you place them? At what height should you hang your paintings?

These are all questions that leave any art buyer or collector completely overwhelmed and they just don't know where to start. So, let's dive in...

#1: Keep It Simple:

In case you're looking for the best frames and mats, make sure that you keep them as simple as you can. The truth is that it is a lot easier to stick with black frames and white mats. These are, without any question, the more versatile colors to choose from. Then, you can have all your artworks framed the same way.

#2: The Eye Level

When it's time to start hanging your paintings or art posters, make sure that you hang them at the eye level. If you take a closer look at any art gallery, this is how they do it, They use the average eye level which is about 58 inches height. And this is where the center of your artworks need to be. This is extremely important because many people will ten to use either the top or the bottom of the artwork.

One of the things that you'll notice when you start hanging your paintings and photography works on your walls is that you may need to adjust some of the furniture to make sure everything looks perfect. And this is perfectly fine.

In case you're planning to do some wall decor in your kid's room, make sure that whatever you hang on the walls is adapted to their eye level. The 58 inches height is the adult average, not children's average.

#3: Hang Art In A Grid:

When you love photography, displaying it as a grid is one of the best ways to make it look even better. Even though this may take you a while (with all the calculations and measurements that you need to make), it's completely worth it.

#4: The Salon Style:

One of the approaches many people are adopting is the salon style. When you want to have different artworks o the same wall and you just don't know how to display them, just follow this steps. The first thing you need to do is to grab the largest artwork that you have. You can either center it in the middle of the wall or pushed to one of the sides, and then you display all the other smaller artworks around it.

One of the easiest and best ways to do this is to use your floor.

As you can see, there are a lot of things that you can do to make your wall decor look amazing.
