HOW TO HANG YOUR MURALS
Now that you've found the perfect picture for your wall, the only thing that matters is getting it the right height so it will fit your home. Whether you have multiple photos to hang or just one, these are the basic hanging instructions Murals:
- Measure the difference between where the nail would sit and the top of the artwork. The nail typically sits on the frame or hanging wire. You will have to take this distance into account later.
- Hang the work of art so that it is between 144 and 152 centimeters above the floor. This puts the work of art at eye level with the average person.
- Mark the spot on the wall and drive a nail into it. In some cases a second nail is needed to support the weight of the image.
- Hang the frame and use a level to make sure it is level. Slide it up and down until your level shows it is level. (Don't you have a spirit level? There's an app for that!)
DIFFERENT OPTIONS FOR HANGING YOUR MURALS
If you don't want to leave holes in your wall, there are more options today than ever for installing Murals. Try one of these creative alternatives used by interior designers:
Add command strips for hanging photos on the wall. They are also offered specifically for frames. Three pieces are good for oversized frames, and only one bar is needed for small frames.
- Use a pegboard as a background and hang everything on pegboard hangers. also works in the same way with a cork board. You can cover an entire wall with cork or a pegboard.
- Add some flair with decorative tape. Washi-tape sticks to the wall, but does not pull paint away.
- Instead of hanging, just stick to leaning framed pieces against the wall. This works well from the mantelpiece, on a sideboard, or even from a desk. Some homeowners choose to hang a shelf and leave photos on the shelf.
- Stick some Velcro on your lighter frames and hang them on the wall. However, the Velcro strip pulls off the paint.
- Buy an easel and place your artwork on the easel. It's easy to turn out your latest canvases.
DON'T HAVE AN EYE FOR DESIGN? TRY THESE TOP TIPS
Every home or office is a unique space with different lighting, decoration and choice of colors for the walls. Not everyone can see a piece in the store and picture it on their wall.
Use these tips if you're not sure where to start:
- Choose photos and artwork that you can imagine looking at for years. Surround yourself with what inspires you, even if someone else might see it differently.
- When hanging something over a piece of furniture, make sure there is a 15-20 cm gap between the bottom of your artwork and the top of the furniture. You don't want someone banging their head against your art when they're sitting on the sofa. If there is not enough space, the art is too big.
- Hold your Murals in relation to your space.
- The art shouldn't be more than two-thirds of the length of your sofa.
- Artwork above the fireplace should extend beyond the reach of the fireplace, but not the length of the fireplace.
- In the dining room, the art shouldn't be more than two-thirds of the length of the table. To balance the balance of your dining room, two photos could work better.
- Don't be afraid to mix and match different styles. You can mix paintings with photos and choose options that suit your personal preferences, but make sure your choices balance each other out.
- The same idea applies to mixing sizes. The large work of art grounds the room, and smaller pieces complete the picture.
- Are you not sure? Stand back and take a picture of the room. If you saw this photo of someone else's house would you like it? Photos can make it easier to get a more distant look at a room or wall.
