What You Need To Know To Hang Your Picture

Posted by jane gray on

We’ve a mix of practical tips as well as inspiration/guides on the blog today.

Do you have a piece of art propped up in a corner gathering dust that’s loitered on your to do list a little too long?! (let’s be honest we’ve all done that…!)

There are some great resources here to help inspire you if that’s what you need or a little more practical advice for those – ‘duh why didn’t I think of that’ moments!!

Love an Infographic...

To start off there’s a great infographic from made.com which pretty much sums up all you need to know if you’re a bit of a novice and don’t know where to start on displaying art. It’s quite long so do scroll down for lots more great tips and resources.

Right Way or Wrong Way?

Style By Emily Henderson has done a great post on hanging art the right or wrong way – it’s very visual and fabulously easy to understand. It plays particular emphasis on getting the right size art for the room/furniture you have, as well some great photos showing how it should be done.

Our Favourite Tip

Comes to you from iheartnaptime and is wonderfully simple! I think this picture speaks for itself but you can check out the post by clicking on the image below.

 

A Gallery Wall Without Nails?

Yes, it’s perfectly possible so if you don’t want to, or can’t use nails in your walls then check out this post by Pretty Providence.  They explain how to do this with the clever use of command strips.

 

Hang Like A Pro!

One of our favourite interior bloggers Sophie Robinson has recently done a great post entitled How To Hang Artwork Like An Interior Designer – it’s packed full of some really great ideas to make your home even more fabulous!

 

Try An Easel

Finally another idea we love is to display your favourite picture on an easel.  There are a lot of different options and you can even buy them in different colours. It’s a great option if you cannot hang on your walls or have a space in a room that you want to use as a focal point too! If you love changing things round regularly and don’t want too much hassle this could be one for you!

We’d love to hear from you and see your art in it's pride of place so do get in touch!
