We all have art in our home. Whether it’s a photo, a portrait, a map or a significant quote, we all have something in our home that we feel proud to display.
Not only is our art an expression of us. The way we display it also shows who we are.
If you’re struggling to figure out how to hang your art, The Powell Group at Keller Williams of the Western Upstate of South Carolina has some suggestions for you.
First of all, plan it out. Figure out what works best for you. After all, you don’t want to start poking nails in your walls only to realize you want to immediately change the display. Figure out where you want things to go. You can do this by holding up your art on the wall to visualize where things will go. If you want to change some things later, that’s fine too.
Next, figure out what works in different spots. Bigger pictures may work in the middle. But, if the smaller pictures mean more to you than you can always make them your focal point.
But, always remember that your placement is your decision. If you want your pieces centered, that’s great! If you want to make a statement by making the pieces a little crooked, that’s fine too. It’s your home. So, you are in control.
You may also want to consider other places to put your art. You don’t always need a wall. You can easily display your art on the mantle or on a table. If you have a prominent cabinet that works for you, use that as well. Whatever works in order to display your most prized possessions is fine.
However, you should also keep in mind that the way you hang your art is only part of the process. Lighting is also important.
As many of us know, different degrees of light shed different levels prominence to an area. Play around with the lighting in each part of your home so that your art is displayed just how you want it.
The Powell Group reminds you that your art displays are an extension of yourself. They show people who you are. So, go ahead and have fun experimenting. Our team members can point you to the resources you need in order to get started.
