Once your art and memorabilia has been framed, it needs to be displayed. Although it is popular today to lean pictures here and there, the most common home for frames is still on the wall. The two main things to focus on will be visual placement and making sure they are hung securely, for your safety as well as the safety of the framing itself.
Even the most beautiful pieces of framed art can still look awkward if they are not hung logically. Some of the key considerations are:
•Choosing framed art that fits the space where it will hang.
•Hang frames in reasonably close proximity to the furniture below it to create unison.
•Hang frames at eye level for maximum viewing pleasure, keeping in mind people stand in foyers and halls and sit in many other spaces so that height can vary.
When hanging art you can get a good idea of how it will look by cutting out a piece of paper the same size as the outer edge of the frame and taping it to the wall. It is much easier to move the paper around than to change the positioning of the actual frame. On that same paper, you can make marks where you want to place your wall hooks. Then install the hooks over the paper and then tear the paper away.
