How should I hang artwork on my wall?

One of the biggest problems you may face with decorating your home is… How do you hang your artwork on your wall in a cohesive but visually arresting manner?

Keep in mind that when you’re hanging your artwork, there are so many more options than just the ones we’ve described above. You can vary the sizes, but generally you want to make sure that everything seems balanced to the eye — meaning you don’t want to put one very large picture on one side, and a very small one next to it. However, if you put the large image in the middle (or vice versa) while flanking it will small ones, the layout becomes balanced. Try experimenting with a variety of layouts before committing to just one.

A great tip for hanging a lot of pictures on a wall is cutting out regular paper, newspaper, or brown paper to the size of your artwork that you want to hang. Then, you can freely hang and rearrange those pieces of paper on the wall to figure out the best looking options that work for you.
