Whether they are authentic works of art or simple reproductions, the way your paintings are placed in your home is crucial. Without proper planning, not to mention making many unnecessary holes, the effect can be disappointing!
Paintings are the final touch so it is important to install them last, once your furniture has found its final positioning.
Respect the proportions
Place a large canvas on a large wall, or a grouping of paintings that will occupy a large volume. Avoid placing a small painting on a large wall, it will look lost!
Choosing the right height
As a general rule, paintings should be placed at eye level (approximately 65 inches off the ground), but this rule may change from time to time. For example, in the bedroom, a small canvas should be placed a few inches above the bedside table, next to the lamp, in a trio composition. In the dining room, one will lower slightly to approach the height of the table.
Create consistent compositions
If more than one painting is chosen, it is best to create a sequence or some alignment that will provide a link between the paintings or wall decorations chosen. The important thing is to remove the scattering.
For a uniform look, we will use paintings of the same size, with the same type of framing. Consistency can be respected by creating color and/or style links.
The installation of the boards
Properly installing the boards does not necessarily mean nailing them into the framing. But you must get the right anchors considering the weight of the boards. The challenge lies in the installation of multi-frame compositions.
Dressing your walls well is like adding a pretty jewel to a piece of clothing. Some people will like to replace them often, according to their moods, while others will prefer to invest more and change less often. It’s up to you!
