Turn your pictures into a beautiful display on your walls with these easy tips
One small object on a large expanse of wall will look lonely, while a too-large piece on a sliver or wall will seem overwhelming.
Aim for a balance of art and empty space.

All the pieces you hang on a wall should have something in common, whether they share a look (such as black-and-white photos),
theme (flowers, for example) or palette. If your pieces are dissimilar, try placing them in matching frames and mattes.

If your furnishings are traditional, stick with symmetrical groupings, and hang pieces in a grid pattern. Asymmetrical arrangements
work well in contemporary rooms; hang the focal point first, then add the other pieces.

Make sure the focal point of your arrangement is at roughly eye leve, about 60" from the floor. When arranging several pieces,
try to keep the vertical pace between them consistent--generally, 2" to 3" works well.
Design your arrangement in advance. Using pieces of kraft paper (or paper bags), trace around the things you plan to hang.
Then cut out the shapes and hang them on the wall with painter's tape. When you have a configuration that works, tap a picture
hanger through each piece of paper where you'd like the hook to be, then remove it and the paper. Now you know exactly where
to install the hooks.
