The art of hanging art

Hanging art can be a hassle, and if not done properly, it can look distracting in a space. Some tips to make the most out of wall decor:

  1. Hang art at eye level.

  2. Choose canvas pieces for walls vulnerable to glare.

  3. Hang art away from window and door frames to avoid overcrowding.

  4. Collect art that you love, carries meaning and resonates an emotion.

  5. Lean art against a wall it might go on before you decide to set a nail.

  6. Hang alternative art pieces like framed mementos, tapestries and textiles.

If you’re making a gallery wall, use matching frames, a cohesive color palette or similar subject matter to unify the look. Space the frames equal distance apart for a designer-quality finish.
