Wall Decoration: How to Hang Artwork

Share |

Wall decoration is important as walls are big in area and make your decor look a bit empty. Artworks, pictures and other wall decorations are great at filling the empty walls. Pictures can be framed or hung without frames. Empty frames can give your decor a distinctive look as well. Besides artworks and photos you can hang posters, old tools, plates and many other interesting things.

In order to make the artwork ‘work’ you need to choose the right size of the artwork and hang it so that it wouldn’t be lost on the wall but also wasn’t heavily hanging over the sofa or armchair, for example. Also if your artwork or picture is too small you may want to arrange and group several artworks or photos together.

Arranging has the same rules as decoration. Find a focal point in your ensemble it may be a bigger photo or plate and arrange the smaller ones around it making a circle of some other shape. The best way to see the bigger picture of your ensemble is to group wall decorations on the floor and try and change the shape of the whole ensemble.

Coordinating your artwork or any other wall decoration with the accents in the room (like in the picture above) will add coherence and depth to your decor. The bright and colorful artwork itself can be an accent in the one-tone room (first picture). Don’t forget to coordinate the style of your wall decoration with the style of your decor otherwise it will seem out of place.
