You just got some nice glass framed wall art, and you want to ensure that you hang it up correctly. It’s simple, right? You hammer a nail into the wall, and then you are good to go. In this guide, we will talk about some mistakes people make with their glass framed wall art.
No. Not exactly! There’s more to it than just that.
Fortunately, we are here to help with tips to avoid these mistakes people make with their glass-framed wall art. Read on to learn more.
Mistakes People Make With Their Glass Framed Wall Art
They Use the Wrong Tools
Yes, it does involve more than just hammering a nail into the wall. It would help if you had a level and tape measure, the bare minimum. Also, you need to know what kind of wall you have.
Why? Because there are different types of hanging materials for different walls, you would likely need screws for wooden walls, for example.
They Hang the Art Too High
You don’t want to be straining your neck when you look at your art. It can be tempting to hang it as high as possible. You are not considering how it will look afterward.
Ideally, you will hang the art at eye level, roughly 57 to 60 inches off the ground. That is an excellent starting point, but you can also make some adjustments based on how high your ceiling is. Measure the 57 inches first, and then adjust how you think it would look best on the wall.
They Get Art That Is Too Small
While smaller pieces of art do tend to cost less money, they do not work well with large rooms. They can change the feel of the room’s dimensions and remove the actual art. You don’t want that.
You don’t want to have a single piece of art engulfed by a large wall. That will make the already small frame look even smaller. It’s better to get a larger piece so that the two can balance each other.
These are just some mistakes people make with their glass-framed art. Non-display-based errors include not properly investing in art and just chasing after trends that will be short-lived. Both of those can cost you some potentially good money.
It can be fun to get glass-framed wall art, though. They can liven up your place, especially if you get a lot of vibrant colors. Just follow these steps, and you can enjoy looking at your art.
