e will show you how to choose the proper placement for each of your art work, and make the process easier and, we think even have a good time at the same time.
1. When choosing your poster/ metal plaque- size matters a lot.
- Very common mistake that many people make purchasing artwork , is underestimating the size of the art print that is needed to make the impact on the wall that they want. The most common poster/art print dimensions are: small: 11×17, medium: 18×24, large: 24×36, movie: 27×40 inches
2. Plan where to place your artwork on a wall before putting hammer to nail.
- For better visualisation you can lay the prints on the floor or table, moving the pieces around until you have an arrangement that you like. Mark the hanging points from the back of the art onto the kraft paper, then tape the paper to the wall and hammer in the nails, remove the paper and it’s all done!
3. Color, style, mood and theme.
- Your walls reflects your personality, so let them speak about you. It’s easy to find complementary colors, but it’s harder to nail down your preference allowing others to feel the same way when they enter your room. For example this paddle boarding vintage poster builds a theme around the artwork. You can do this for example by thinking of the key words, your hobbies or favourite place.
4. Hanging wall art on different surfaces.
- Most walls are hollow, with soft plaster or drywall covering their sturdy lumber framework. The boards or studs, behind such a wall provide suitable backing for any object that is hang on the wall, but they can be difficult to locate and can not be spaced where you want them. For surfaces other than wood, an ordinary nail or screw is usually not enough. Hardware hangers might be ideal in that case, as they are specially designed for hollow walls. However for our metal plaques and vintage style posters a simple two pin double picture hook would suffice, they are available from most hardware or DIY store.
5. Metal plaques- great outdoor& indoor wall décor.
- The best materials used for metal plaques are: bronze, brass and stainless stain, which are known for hardness, strength and corrosion resistance. That will make the metal plaques durable long lasting in all weather conditions.
6. Hang art at eye level.
- A good rule of thumb is to hang artwork at eye level for the easy viewing, eye level on average, is 57 to 60 inches off the ground.
