The Art of Hanging Art

Adding artwork over a sofa can add dimension to a room.

Adding artwork over a sofa can add dimension to a room.

Artwork adds the finishing touch to any space. Here are a few tips on choosing the right pieces for your space:

  • When choosing art for your space try to choose a piece that has colors that work with your room or go with a black and white theme or different shape mirrors.


  •  Generally, choose smaller pieces for narrow walls such as hallways and larger pieces or a combination of smaller pieces for bigger walls.


  • When hanging artwork over furniture do not choose art that is wider than the  piece.


  • Mirrors when hung opposite a window can add more natural light to a room or reflect the scenery outside or even make a small room appear larger.


DESIGNER TIP: Avoid unwanted nail holes in your walls by laying your pieces on the floor to arrange first,in the same square footage as the wall space you are hanging in.If your landlord won’t allow nails in the walls 3m makes a product for hanging that is strong and won’t mark your wall.
