Bare walls can restrict the personality of a room, so wall art may be a critical component to consider as you start redesigning a space. To avoid clutter and help your artistic pieces make a statement that you want to display in your home, follow these helpful guidelines for creating the right arrangement.
Keep images at eye level
Larger pieces of artwork are often hung too high on the wall, making it hard to fully appreciate the visual intrigue of the art. To make your favorite artwork pop on your walls, hang pieces so that the center is about five to five and a half feet off the ground. This will center the artwork at eye level so it is the focal point of a room.
Group small pieces together
It is easy to create a mess of artwork when you are working with several small frames, but you can find success when you lay them out on the floor first. This will allow you to see which pieces work best next to each other without causing permanent damage to the wall in the process.
Hang craft paper first
Before you hang a single piece of artwork, use craft paper or old newspaper to cut out the exact shape of each frame. You can hang these on the wall with masking tape to get the spacing just right without nailing anything down. Once you are ready to hang the real artwork, you can hammer in nails through the craft paper, saving you the step of making pencil marks on the wall.
