Have you ever strolled into an art gallery and been completely mesmerized by the exhibit? We, like most people, enjoy having art in our homes. It’s a terrific opportunity to show your personality and creativity on your walls using tools like paint color, a specific piece of art, decorative metal signs that match your favorite piece of furniture, and more.
So, what exactly is the issue? Art that isn’t properly hung stands out like a nasty toupee. You can’t help but notice it, and you want to do something about it. As a result, we prepared this post in response to the numerous inquiries we received about how to mount wall art.
- Art should be displayed at eye level.
The majority of people have a habit of hanging artwork too high. If you just remember one thing from this post, make it this: On the center, 57′′. This implies your outdoor metal signs or indoor piece’s center should be 5.7 inches from the floor. This 5ft 7-inch standard is used as a standard in many galleries and museums to represent the typical human eye height. It also gives a sense of equilibrium in the home because all of your artwork will be aligned along the same visual axis.
Allow 8-10 inches over the sofa back for hanging art above a sofa, even if this violates the 57-inch limit. Also, pay attention to the distance between your artwork and the point where the wall meets the ceiling.
- Scales of Justice
To get a balanced effect while working with a collection of art, treat the collection or gallery as a single piece. To begin, make sure your collection is not too big or too little for your sofa or sideboard. We’re looking for a Goldilocks effect here: Two-thirds of the size of the sofa or sideboard should be taken up by the artwork. If you’re hanging a set of pieces, make sure the heavier pieces are laid and kept at the bottom left and the lighter parts are at the top right, with mid-sized pieces in the between. If you have a huge piece and a few smaller pieces, hang the larger item in the center as a focal point and work your way out from there. For appropriate spacing, leave 2-5 inches between each frame.
- Don’t be afraid to experiment with salon style.
If it weren’t so scary, the salon-style aesthetic for custom metal wall art could be one of the most adored and admired characteristics of a place. How do you get the appearance you want without creating too many holes in your walls? The arrangement should be tailored to your (or your client’s) preferences, but remember to adhere to the broad standards described in Tip #2 for many components. Salon-style is also great when you mix and match a variety of wall hangings, such as paintings, prints, photos, text pieces, and wall sculptures!
- Be Unconventional
Don’t have the time or patience to create a gallery wall in the style of a salon? Design unique decorative metal signs and hang them in unexpected places. Don’t limit yourself to the confines of a room! The new gallery wall is made out of floating wall shelves! For a more fascinating and multifaceted look, overlay multiple pieces. If you have a huge piece of art, instead of hanging it, prop it against the wall for a more casual and contemporary effect.
These are some of the different types of ways you could hang decorative metal signs in different parts of your home or office space.
