TIP 1

Can’t decide on just one piece to hang? Consider a Salon Hang – Plan your hang on the floor first and then have one feature piece in the middle and arrange the others around it. The frames don’t need to be the same, and it works best when you have varying sizes of work.

TIP 2

Hang your work at eye level and if you have furniture surrounding the piece leave at least 8 inches space in between.

TIP 3

If you have a big space to fill, consider having one large feature piece. And remember that having the artwork slightly too big is always better than it being slightly too small.
