5 Quick Tips and Tricks to hanging artwork for your home by Kristen M. Brown of Samba to the Sea for The Sunset Shop.

Ā 

I totally understand.

Not only do you have the hard decision ofĀ picking your favorite print for you space, then you have to determineĀ which size to order. So manyĀ decisions! šŸ§

Trust me, before I startedĀ The Sunset Shop I had no clue that there were tips and tricks to picking artwork size. I hands down can tell you that I've learned from experience...and my own errors in my house.Ā Because there's nothing like finally pickingĀ a piece of artwork that you love, hanging it on your wall, only to realize the size doesn'tĀ look quite right...or worse, it's way too small for the space...duoh!!!

So I'm here to help with a couple of my tips and tricksĀ to hanging artwork for your home!

1) First and foremost, pick the location in your space where you want artwork.Ā 


2) Measure theĀ available wall space for the print to hang, as well as theĀ furniture it will hang over.

3) Use the rule of 2/3rd.Ā 
Any piece of artwork that you would like to hang centered above a piece of furniture (i.e. couch, bed) should be minimum 2/3rds the width of the piece of furniture. Click here to read more on how to pick the best print size for your wall!

4) When in doubt, useĀ Kraft paper or newspaper to helpĀ visualizeĀ the size of the artwork on your wall. Simply cut the paper to size and hang on the wall. And if you're creating a gallery wall, using Kraft paper is also a great way to visualize a gallery wall layout before you start hanging your artwork -- click here for tips on how to create a gallery wall in your home!Ā 

5) Last but not least, you can contact meĀ and ask away! From quick questions to complimentary 1-on-1 virtual design sessions, I'm always happy to help!
