You’ve bought a beautiful new piece of art and now it’s staring at you across the room from its position on the floor propped against the wall (we’ve all been there). You've read our how to care for your art at home guide, so you’ve learned where to best position your work, but how do you get it on the wall? Read on to learn about the best ways to hang your artworks, and you’ll never need to draft in help again.
I move the art around my home as often as I buy a new piece, which is to say… probably too often. I’ve learned there is sometimes immediately a ‘perfect’ placement, or sometimes it takes a little time to sit with a picture to figure out how you want to live with it. There is no pressure to get it right the first time, and sometimes half the fun is re-curating your home as you go.
Once you know which room your new picture is going to make its new home in, take a minute to think about which wall it’s going to go on (Direct sunlight? Best not. Above a radiator? Make sure you leave a big gap!) Thinking about this in advance is well worth a couple of minutes of your time, and can really increase its lifespan.
HOW HIGH IS TOO HIGH?
You’ve seen it before. You walk into a room and it looks as if all the pictures are in a race to reach the ceiling first. This is a really common mistake when hanging pictures, and is so easy to avoid - just follow our tips!
All our frames come with appropriate fixings and hanging mechanisms. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our client services team, or visit your local framer. Once you’re happy, you’ll need to look out the following basic tools.
