Basic rules of hanging paintings in the interior
Paintings, photographs, posters and billboards at all times served as the main decoration of any interior. It seems that a beautiful picture is good in itself, regardless of the environment and location, but, in practice, this statement is not always true. What kind of wall in the room to choose for hanging pictures? How to arrange and place multiple photos or drawings into a single composition? At what altitude their best to hang? We will try to answer all these important questions.
Decor and accessories in the interior perform an important role in creating the image and integrity of the atmosphere of cozy and lived-in space. Even when finishing is completed, and furniture took its places, the walls of the room often look too empty and boring, and that’s when there is a need to decorate them with paintings, posters, etc. It is good if you already have some beautiful paintings or graphics, worthy to decorate the interior, however, if you do not have a collection of art, that is no reason to leave the walls empty. Family photos in neat frames, digital print of any image on canvas, interior collages that can be made with your own hands, etc. may become an original and stylish replacement for familiar paintings. In addition, the canvas itself is not a masterpiece, united on a wall in a common group, they create a very attractive and interesting composition, in which you can set a certain rhythm or used in the interior as a missing accent color.
Geometry and function of the room
The composition of the paintings hanging in the interior directly affects the geometry of the surrounding space, with pictures on the wall are able to visually correct the shortcomings of the room. For example, vertically disposed paintings can make the ceiling look higher and, on the contrary, hung horizontally — its width. If the task is to force a long narrow room seem shorter, it is enough to place on its end wall a large and bright picture.
Human perception is very sensitive to horizontal lines, so building a composition of multiple images, try to keep the lower part lined up in the horizontal.
The function of the room also plays an important role. Decorators do not recommend to place large and bright canvases in the bedroom, just as dramatic and battle pictures, which will undoubtedly interfere with rest and relaxation.
