Create your own personal wall art decoration for your home.
Step by Step
The problem:You have maybe chosen a relatively small image format, for example a screen measuring 40 x 30 cm. After hanging this wall art on a large, free wall surface, you?ll soon see that, because of the large bare area, your image is literally drowning and seems insignificant.
The solution:Hang your picture on a smaller wall surface, combine it with other wall images, or take other measures to make the free wall area smaller (e.g. add some large potted plants).
The problem:You have ordered a large 120 x 80 cm gallery print and you?ve hung it on a wall that is just 1,30 m wide. The wall-painting is overbearing and oversized.
The solution:Hang your large wall art on a wall surface, where there is sufficient space to the left and the right of the piece. This allows your creation to take full effect. In the case of large images, it is also important that a certain viewing distance is available - e.g. hanging one right next to the entrance doors means that it will never be fully appreciated.
Keep Inspiring Memories At Hand
The problem:You've hung up an image without a frame on a wall that is covered in a very striking wallpaper pattern. The pattern completely drowns out your image and it's hardly noticed any more.
The solution:Give your wall art a frame that suits it. Opt for a frame with a wide-width passe-partout. Thus the image will stand out against the wallpaper pattern and it is then perceived as an independent element on the wall. Tip: Look at the Pixum image in more detail.
The problem: You have not adjusted the height and width of the image to suit the room. On a very narrow wall, for example, at the end of a corridor, a broad picture appears very compact. On the other hand, a narrow image in portrait format loses its effect on a very wide wall.
The solution: For a wide wall, select a wall image in landscape format, and for a narrow wall go for a picture in portrait format. Images in portrait also have the advantage of emphasising the height of a room.
Maximise your images and motifs
The problem: You've got several arbitrarily arranged wall arts, and the wall looks chaotic and a bit of an eye-sore.
The solution: Decide for a certain type of arrangement (e.g. Petersburger hanging, gallery mountings). Even if this is not straightforward, adding a little system is often sufficient to direct the viewer's focus and to allow the overall picture to work harmoniously.
