Tips On How to Mount Décor On the Wall

Hang Art Centered at Eye Level

First, the room that you plan to hang your art or décor is a critical factor to consider. Take the kitchen space, for example. Most of the time, you will be standing when cooking or even when walking past the hallway. Thus, the need to place the pictures at a slightly higher level from the flow.

Space the Décor Right

The spacing that you use when hanging pictures and other forms of artwork on your walls is another significant factor. You don’t want to have your décor too close to the point that they look too cramped or disorganized. At the same time, you also don’t want to have them too widely spaced that they look like you ran out of ideas for your walls.

Light Them Up

It is also essential that you have the right amount of light on your décor on the walls. Too much light on your wall art can create glare and wash-out. For better enjoyment of your wall décor, try illuminating them using the least light as possible. Also, LED lights are a better option to use compared to fluorescent lights, which can damage artwork.

Don’t Hand in Direct Sunlight

Prolonged exposure of artwork in direct sunlight can fade its images in the long run. So, avoid hanging them in direct sunlight, even if they have protective UV-blocking glass.

Use the Right Hangers

When hanging pictures that exceed 8×10 inches, you should use two hooks for better stability. You don’t want to have too few hangers, especially when the wall art and décor are bulky or too large as it may end up putting too much pressure on the hangers.
