Personalise Your Wall Art

img

Artwork in a home creates a greater sense of warmth and boosts the visual appeal. Whether you want to make a statement with a standalone piece, or create a salon-wall look with various artworks (a salon hang), these tips will help you make an impact while understanding the best way to hang and look after artwork. There are various ways to hang art: the most popular are the single wall hang, small groupings and the salon hang. To get the most impact out of a salon hang, choose different artworks, colours, styles and sizes to mix it up and make it a little fun.

Personalise 

Personal art can be a great way to celebrate memories and with most devices equipped with good-quality cameras, reliving personal occasions such as holidays is easier than ever. These happy snaps can really add to gallery walls as works of art in their own right. Family portraits that relate to the emotional connection one has with an artist’s work can also look great in the mix. Remember, art is subjective and when displayed well can make a strong impact.

Dos and don’ts 

Invest in good quality frames for artwork as this can really add to the value and appeal. Where possible, use proper picture hanging hooks or screw/ wall mates as this will ensure the artwork is well secured. Keep frames and artwork surfaces clean by regularly dusting with a soft cloth. Consider position, not only for visual aesthetic but function. You want your artwork to look its best but you also want to maintain the quality of the work. Don’t hang artwork above or below a heater or airconditioner as the changes in humidity and temperature can damage the physical materials. Likewise, avoid hanging artwork in strong direct light, outside or in other situations where the climate experiences severe fluctuations. If you choose to hang your work in a bathroom, be mindful that it may be affected by the humidity and steam and this may cause damage such as warping, mildew inside the perspex, mould and moisture drip marks on the inside and outside of frame. The same goes for hanging art close to kitchen appliances such as kettles. Format Framing is a new online platform delivering gallery quality, archival printing and handmade framing around Australia.
