Do you agree that blank walls are dull? Your vacation photos, motivational quotes, and botanical boards will change the interior, making the room more interesting and positive. But what should you do when you’ve got a lot of things to hang on the wall? How to showcase them properly? Here are several tips on how to mount pictures.
1. Use narrow shelving
Turn the room into a small gallery – showcase your favorite photos and art on several long shelves. This way to mount pictures is easy. It’s useful for those who rent a dwelling or just don’t want to make too many holes in the wall.
2. Group mini frames
If you’ve got a bunch of small pieces, don’t mount them all over the room. Choose one place and group those mini frames together. You’ll love the look.
3. Start in the middle
Have you got many unusually shaped plates, pictures, and other disparate things? Try to imagine them in a grid. Start from the middle. Work your way out hanging different items. The uneven amount of items may go off the grid. For example, small pictures will look better when the walls of this mini gallery aren’t perfectly squared.
4. Remember the rule of thumb
When you want to showcase different photos of the same size on one wall, hang them side-by-side. The free space between them shouldn’t be less than 2 inches. Besides, if you’re into mathematics and all that calculations staff, here is another tip: hang pictures at 60 inches from the ground. Being showcased at the eye level, your artworks, pictures, and photos will always attract everyone’s attention.
5. Use the space
Have you seen those beautiful photos of pictures mounted above the stairs? Follow this rule: find the pivotal weight and hang pictures along the staircase, making sure that all of them are at the same level.
