A wall without a painting is like a car without seats, it is like bread without butter, but it doesn’t make sense to just hang a painting or an art on a wall just for the sake of it. It is very common to see people making mistakes in hanging the art which could have been done much better. There are certain points that one needs to remember so that the art can bring a touch of class and elegant and improves the beauty quotient of the wall as well as the room.
5 Things to remember when hanging pictures or art
Big is better:
It is better to apply this principle while selecting a painting or an art to hang on the wall. It should cover at least half the size of the wall to upto two thirds of the wall. Having a large painting makes it more visible from all parts of the room appreciably increasing its beauty.
Eye level centric art:
If you are hanging an art, it is important that the top part of the painting or the art form is not too high, if it is at the eye level, it makes it easy to appreciate the beauty. The things also to consider here is that keep into account if people are going to be standing or sitting while gazing at the art.
Ideas to arrange:
It is important that all your wall hangings end at least six to eight inches before the top of your furniture. This not only protects you wall piece from any damage, but it also makes aesthetic sense. While hanging a bunch of pictures, you can arrange them in symmetric from or asymmetric from to make them more visually appealing.
it is important that the wall hanging does not look distant from the entire theme of the room. You should an art form that compliments the theme of the room and should have a similar color tone that provides accents to the entire color of the room. The entire room should gel and all parts of the room should integrate with each other.
Making art the inspiration:
The art should be the inspiration of the room, is should create an identity for the room and make it so unique only for the room. It should be the first thing people notice in your room and the last thing before leaving the room.
