Art Installation, Challenging, Fun And Creative

Art installation is perhaps one of the most difficult jobs to complete in the home. Choosing the right pieces, the right frame and mat and how to install the correct ways are all considerations that need to be made for a successful and beautiful layout. Your walls are your canvas. Have fun, get creative, but be sure and hang your pieces correctly.

Mixing mediums, which gives some a second thought, can make a terrific layout. Black and white, color, photography, paint and drawing, different style and color frames and a mix of both heavy and lighter matting. Antique, new, and everything in between. All considerations for mixing to make for an interesting and appealing layout. Where you may want one large piece over a headboard or substantial piece of furniture, a flow of mixed pieces can guide one down a corridor or along with other long, open wall spaces. Lastly, don’t be afraid to use an asymmetric layout behind a sofa, you do not need to center everything or cover every square inch of wall space.

Foyers, entryways, hallways, and stairways can be a terrific spot for a gallery of family photos. Whether it is just you, or you have another half, you can mix in both sides of the family for a wonderful history into your current and past family members.

One last thought, be safe and not sorry. If you have a twenty-pound piece of art using a thirty-pound hook can assure that piece stays where it is meant to be.
