How do you design the gallery type display? Here are ideas on how to hang art work to make it look neat and pretty.
- Don’t use patch hooks to hang your wall hangings, especially in damp spaces. This hook type isn’t strong and your artwork can end up on the floor.
- Arrange related photo frames in spatially and in proportion to the furniture in the room. For example, hang a four-foot painting on a five-foot sofa. Randomly arranged artwork can make a room look cluttered. These decoration mistakes make your house look messy.
- Avoid hanging artwork in a bad environment. Hanging it in high or unstable temperatures areas, will speed up the aging process of your art works. The areas with high humidity, or extreme humidity changes, such as kitchens or bathrooms, also no friendly for those art works. The situation also applies for your family’s photo album collections.
