When you've invested time and money in choosing artworks you love, you'll want to ensure that you hang them where they can be positioned to best advantage. Here are our tips to make the most of your investment.
1. Positioning relative to Room Layout
Step into your home and then into each room with fresh and critical eyes. Artworks create dynamic focal points so you want to position them accordingly
2. Positioning relative to Furniture
Think about their positioning in relation to the furnishings in the room. All but the very largest artworks work best anchored to a piece of furniture
3. Positioning relative to Other Artworks
Don't make the mistake of hanging artworks at different levels - unless of course you're aiming to create a 'rogue's gallery'. And don't make the all too common mistake of hanging them too high.
Of course, whilst the above may be rules of thumb, they're not hard and fast and as with every rule, there are the exceptions that break them.
If you have a very large work, anything over 140cm high, you may well want to hang it lower than you might otherwise, so that it keeps a relationship with the floor. And with larger works, architectural features such as the top of doorways / openings often provide a better anchor to align the top edge of an artwork.
Sometimes it's best left to the professionals.
