Canvas wall art can make a home more beautiful. Paintings also make a house look well decorated and cozy. Aside from getting nice paintings to go with your living room set or bedroom, it is also important to know how to hang them properly to get the best effect.
When hanging a painting you should typically hang it 5-1/2 feet from the ground. Think eye level of a person of average height. If you are placing a canvas behind a sofa, put about 6 to 8 inches of space between the bottom of your canvas and the top of your sofa’s backrest.
When hanging artwork in a sitting room hang your canvas close to eye level when a person sits. If you are hanging a large canvas, place it a bit lower or 5 feet from the floor. When mounting canvas art sets, be sure to hang each piece of canvas about 2 inches apart.
There are hanging kits that let you adjust the height of the hook ones they are installed on the wall. These types of picture hanging kits are ideal for hanging canvas art sets or multiple pieces of canvas as an art grouping. This will prevent you from removing the hook from the wall to adjust the height.
When hanging multiple canvas wall art in different sizes as a group, place them on the floor next to the wall you plan to hang them on. Arrange them on the floor to find the perfect lay out before boring holes on your wall.
