A little common sense with framed art prints and photos can help connect the room successfully
Maybe you’re limited by an older living space with existing furniture, or maybe you’ve whispered to the possibilities offered by a bold new space. Maybe you’re decorating with limited funds or a tight budget. Regardless of the circumstances, framed art and prints can provide many solutions to interior design challenges and are often key factors in combining space.
In order for framed art to be used successfully, wall décor, color and grouping, proportions and hanging must be carefully considered. Start by thinking about the emotion or mood you want to convey. Consider the colors and styles of existing furniture that you may want to enhance, contrast, or complement, especially those that are difficult or expensive to change, such as flooring or bathroom furniture. Explore the space yourself. Is it big and wide, high ceiling or small and intimate?
Now that you’ve started thinking about atmosphere, space, colors, and placement, here are some thoughts on materials and tools. If saving is a major concern, the carpet material should be 100% acid-free rag sheet. Museums use it. Double mats can work well in situations where you want to maximize your highlight color. The highlight mat is usually placed under a lighter mat so that only about sixteen-quarters of an inch (about three to five centimeters) is visible. Rugs are usually four-layered, but thicker eight-layered rugs can really get attention. They work best with photos and very small prints. Silk rugs can be used in more formal and elegant situations. If the mat is not used, there are spacers called nets to prevent the piece from touching the glass. This prevents condensation. UV glass does not prevent fading, but reduces it over time. Always make sure the carpet and frame are not in the way!
the viewer’s eyes are off. They should complement the game, not compete for attention. Finally, I recommend a spirit level and a good sturdy hammer if you plan to do the hanging yourself.
Neat suspension, relationships and grouping all affect the professional look. Unity is most important when it comes to bringing together an exhibition of painting, graphics and photography. Grouping the frames of the walls adds character to the environment. Frames of the same color and the same color combine the collection, even if the images are of different shapes and sizes. Framing different patterns with the same carpet color also adds unity.
Placing all the items to be grouped for a specific wall on the floor of a room is an easy way to visualize the plan. You can reorder items until you’re happy. Then cancel and check the layout before heading to the wall. Remember that the constant spacing between each element is important. Videotapes and large hooks can be hidden under doorbell straps, ribbons and decorative roses. For formal settings, chains can hang images on traditional poles. Large, bold images can be set farther away in more open spaces. Pictures of small details should be hung in hallways and intimate bathrooms. The most common mistake when hanging images is to hang them too high. The height of the standing eye of the average person is suitable for corridors and vestibules. In living rooms and dining rooms, images should be at eye level when seated.
