Artwork is a great way to add interest to a room, but arranging art can be stressful. If you are very confused what would be the sequence or how to organize your artwork, we will give you some idea where to put them to create a beautiful appearance in your house or office. Here’s our favorite places to hang your artwork:
In a Corner
Turn a lonely corner into a cozy, friendly reading nook when you create a wrapping gallery wall. Try hanging family photos and art in various sizes for an eclectic, lived-in look.
Behind Your Bed
A headboard can be a bedroom’s focal point, but hanging a gallery of photos above it will double the impact and is more personal than hanging a mirror or piece of art
Above the Sofa
In living rooms, people are usually sitting, so artwork should be lower. A good way to ensure you’re placing artwork at the right height is to hang it one hand width above the sofa.
Above the Furnitures
It’s important to style you art according to it’s dimensions. Large pieces (whether portrait or landscape) look great centered above couches, credenzas, and tables in living and dining rooms. If you go this route, plan for the center of the art to be directly above the center of the piece of furniture and for the bottom of your piece to be 5 – 8 inches above the top. If you’re working with a couch or chair with a low back, set it up so the bottom of the art is 5 – 8 inches above someone’s head when sitting.
At the Kitchen
The kitchen is a room often overlooked when it comes to hanging fine art. True, many kitchens are wide open, but if your space has even one wall (even a backsplash), or is self-contained, there are plenty of opportunities. Not only can artwork bring in color, it can set the mood, and add life and soul to sometimes sterile environments.
Around the Toilet
Distract from one of the chillier, more utilitarian areas of your house with colorful prints that can be collaged to fill awkward-sized areas.
Hang Artwork In the Ceiling
Hanging art from a ceiling can provide a novel display and provide a striking addition to your decor. While slightly more difficult than the traditional wall hanging, the task is relatively easy to accomplish and obtain professional results. Depending on the exact look you are trying to achieve and the type of object being hung, different types of fasteners may be required. Use care when hanging art as falling objects are dangerous to anyone underneath.
In a Gallery Wall
Gallery walls are the best way to make a statement when you have lots of pieces you love. They’re beautiful above furniture in entryways, halls, or living rooms. Keep it clean and cool by keeping things in one style and frame.
