There are groovy and creative ways of hanging wall art in your home


Regardless as to whether or not you're the decorative type, it is fairly straightforward when it comes to hanging wall art in any important living area of your home. This approach will work whether you own your own home, or you happen to be renting out your own home. It all comes down to some sharp planning, and knowing your theme to begin with. Think about the placement of your wall art.

1. Know your theme

Know what you're setting out to achieve with your wall art before taking the plunge. What is the epitome of your home decor? Are you after bright colours? Are there certain materials you want to use? Or is your theme spread across a single subject matter item? For example, if your theme is Japanese paper art, ensure you've got your origami skills down pat. If your theme is nature, don't follow the law of opposites and digress.

Pineapple designs are hot property


2. Be grounded

Your wall art project starts on the ground before doing anything else. Lay out your arrangements on the floor. Start with the largest piece, and then progress to the smallest, working from the back to the front. Consistency is key.

3. The equipment

All you need to do is create a simple paper template for each artwork, to sit within an art frame, as in the images displayed within this article. Afterwards, you'll be ready to blu-tack your art to the frame, and to the wall. Use a generous amount on each back corner. Ensure your art blends in with your furniture and lighting. If hanging above your bed in the bedroom, ensure there is a decent gap between your bed head and the wall if your bed is right against a wall in your home bedroom. Experiment, and ensure the art blends in with existing furniture and the lighting arrangements in the specified space. When you're completely happy, and only if you want to, then use adhesives and/or hooks/hammers.

4. Have fun

Pineapples and the ampersand 'and' symbol (as in &), as well as numbers and other shapely objects are current home wall art trends. Play around if you're creative, and/or if you're in the mood for adventure when it comes to this decorating and home improvement activity.

When happy, this arrangement is ideal for renters.
