How to hang your art right ?

Since Gallery Mori’s opening from September 2017, we’ve seen so many customers struggling with their decisions on what size to pick, how tall to hang and how many art prints should there be on each wall.

 

Look, it’s no rocket science, there are hundreds of ways to get it right, yet only 3 ways to get it wrong. And that’s what we are going to talk about today.

 

Before we get started, you should know that there’s no one-size-fits-all formula that can tell you exactly where on your wall an art piece needs to go, as factors vary for every home: where the art is going? what it will be hanging above? how high the ceilings are? . But, there are some tips you can remember that might help you remedy this mistake if you’ve realized some of your art is placed wrongly.

 

Mistake #1: Too High
The mistake people most often make. It seems so trivial, but even a piece of art hung a few inches too high can make a whole room feel “off.” An art piece is meant to blend in nicely with the rest of your furnitures, that way they complements each other. That connection breaks the moment you hang your art piece too high.

 

Tips from Gallery Mori:
It won’t go wrong if you hang your art piece 5-10 cm above the furniture.

 

Mistake #2: Too Small

 

If you go with an art piece that’s too small for a room, it’ll make the entire room, and all the furnishings in it, feel like it’s out of scale and out of balance.

 

Tips from Gallery Mori:

 

1. The width of the single art piece or the wall art collage should be 2/3 the width of the furniture.
2. In a situation when you really can’t be sure about the size, go for big rather then small. Rather let the art work overwhelm the wall than the other way round. ( We know it sounds like we are trying to upsell 😂, but we are not !)

 

Mistake #3: Too Far

 

When it comes to a series of 2,3 or a collage, a common mistake people usually make is that they place the art pieces too far from each other, again, the connection breaks when you do that and they become irrelevant.

 

Tips from Gallery Mori:
They should not be more than 8 cm apart from each other.
