Wall Art | PUBLISHED 01.09.19 | AH ADMIN

It can be overwhelming thinking about all the ways and places you can hang your new artwork. These 5 tips will help you efficiently display your painting and add to the style, design and beauty of your home!

Find the Perfect Frame


The perfect frame can enhance the impact of any painting. Before you chose a frame, observe the style of your painting to determine the frame style you should chose. For the landscape painting above, the frame matches the color pallet of the artwork and contributes to the overall mood of the piece.

Utilize White Backdrops

White walls allow your painting to stand out and become the center point of any room. Colorful art will burst off the wall and grab everyone's attention – making it a great conversation piece in any room. Multi-colored abstract art will provide a great contrast to the clean, crisp backdrop.

Add a Great View

Even if you don't have you have that perfect picturesque view you’ve always wanted, you can add beautiful nature paintings to any room in your house. You can hang interesting realistic or abstract pieces that transport you to a snowy mountainside or a sunny oceanside paradise. Place these paintings somewhere you are at often so you can enjoy seeing a nature landscape throughout the day.

Display Over Furniture

Paintings can add life to the wall space behind your sofa. Your furniture is likely a neutral, singular color, giving you the perfect opportunity to add a splash of color to your room. Choose one large painting or multiple smaller paintings in a row to hang above your living room couch. Tip: art should be hung 6-8" above the sofa.

Create Interesting Groupings

If you have multiple works from the same artist or the same style, it's a great idea to group them together. The different paintings will complement each other as a series and will make an eye-grabbing statement in any room. The best part is that there's no correct pattern in which to hang your art. You can change the distance, arrangement and location to perfectly match your home!
