Boca Raton Interior Redesign FAQ’s-Got the Picture!
Whether you’re selling your home in Boca Raton or are planning a DIY home project, these Boca Raton Home Interior Redesign FAQ tips can help you bring order to your pictures. Often I see clients take great pains in maintaining their home and making sure things are just so but when they decide to hang their treasures it’s as if they see a blank space, grab their hammer and nails and as long as it’s straight and doesn’t fall down consider it done.
Put the hammer down!
Hanging pictures is not a mystical trick that only trained decorators know.
And keep in mind while there are guidelines, it’s still your home and you choose the rules!
Tip - Every blank wall does not have to have something on it and
every picture you own does not have to be hung.
Something I see in so many homes is that photos, pictures, artwork are hung in any blank space there is with disregard for size, space or visual impact.
Tip-Sofas-pictures hung above a sofa should be between 4-8 inches (some say 3-6, others 5-9”). The point is you don’t want a lot of space between the top of your sofa and the bottom of your picture. Visually you want the viewer to take in the sofa and picture as a whole.
One other point- you don’t want your picture (or picture area) to be longer than your sofa. Always keep proportion.. having your picture cover about ⅔ of the wall above the sofa.
Tip- Look Me in the Eye! I think we’ve all heard this... hang your pictures at eye level- roughly having the center of the picture between 60-65” off the floor. An exception? If the art is hung in the dining room, for example, where the viewing is from a seated position, then you can go lower.
Tip- In staging we speak of “clutter”... to me that translates to distracting. The same could be said of too many small pictures scattered on the wall. A better option would be larger pictures of groupings where each group is like one larger picture.
Tip- Size does matter. Admit it... you’ve cringed when you saw this little picture on a big wall. Distracting isn’t it? Or conversely when the wall seemed to be engulfed by this too large picture.
