You can decorate the walls in your home by hanging colorful pictures in frames. The pictures are designed to add a touch of style to any room, and they’re in ready to hang frames, which makes life that, much easier. Adorning your walls with a selection of pictures pre-mounted in wall frames is an affordable and fun way to revamp parts of your home without the need for redecorating redesigning and entire rooms. Choose from photographs of flowers or idyllic scenes, arty prints or traditional-style paintings. Whatever your taste, our range of pictures is sure to have something for every room.
When you are completing your home design with some picture, you need to give the full protection to keep your interior home pretty. Try to protect your artwork from UV light (sun fades artwork), heat and humidity. Avoid hanging pieces in a humid bathroom or over a heat register as this could potentially damage valued artwork. Pictures or groupings that deserve extra attention can be emphasized with lighting. Low-wattage halogen bulbs or standard incandescent are both good choices for spotlighting artwork. Avoid regular halogen or close direct lighting as the heat could possibly damage the artwork.
In rooms with standard 8-foot high ceilings, most artwork should be hung so that the middle of the picture is approximately 5 feet (60”) off the floor. For rooms with higher ceilings, artwork can be hung a little higher, which will visually lower the ceiling height. When hanging pictures above a sofa, you should leave an approximate 6” to 8” space between the top of the back of the sofa and the bottom of the picture. Over a tabletop or counter, allow 10” to 12” between the table surface and bottom of the picture. This space can be adjusted if you have lamps or other items on the table, which will visually add height.
The best way to arrange groupings on a wall is to first lay your pictures out on the floor as you want them to appear on the wall. Next, trace and cut out paper templates of each frame and tape these to the wall to mimic the pattern formed on the floor, nudging them around until you create the desired display. Mark the nail locations with a pencil, and make sure to use proper hardware for your pieces. It might seem time consuming to make paper templates. Groupings are more effective if they are hung with some kind of symmetry to create a square or rectangular shaped display. Since your frame sizes will likely vary, you won’t have a perfect geometrically shaped outline, but the desired balanced appearance can still be achieved. Try to space the frames 3” to 4” apart.
