Hanging pictures

 Artwork  can make a big difference in the overall feel and look of your home. One problem that homeowners encounter is how high should the pictures or artwork be? And, where do I hang it.

In general, artwork should be hung so that the center point of the picture or grouping is about eye  level for the average person. While this won’t be possible in every situation, it’s a good guideline to keep in mind.

Another technique to remember is that a grouping of pictures should be thought of as one unit of art. Test an arrangement of pictures by laying everything out on a large table (or on the floor), playing with combinations until you hit upon one that works. Laying them out on paper is even better since you’ll be able to trace around each object and determine where picture hangers should be installed. Tape the paper up on the wall as a template for picture hangers and you’ll be done in no time.

Also, keep the art in proportion to the wall that it is being placed. Big pictures on big walls and smaller art on narrower walls.
