How to Display Modern Wall Art?

Any art collection, especially when it comes to paintings or other types of modern wall art that can be hung, deserves to be displayed. So let us give you some advice on how to arrange your fine art collection at home.

Symmetry is crucial

Proper art hanging, as well as mirror hanging, by the way, is important if you want to create a peaceful, soothing atmosphere at home. The secret lies in symmetry. For instance, you can achieve this choosing paintings that are identical in size, have a common color scheme or the same frames. Experience shows that the excellent spaces to create symmetry are along hallways, above large pieces of living room or dining room furniture such as tables or sofas, and focal walls as well.

Rotating art collection

In case you have more fine art pieces than space to display them in a proper way, the best thing you can do is to install special picture rails and to set up a simple rotating system. Moreover, try to attach picture rails at just below eye level so that all of your displayed fine art pieces would be at the excellent height for viewing. Besides, to create a more dynamic display, always place smaller objects in front of the larger ones and don’t forget to change out your fine art pieces regularly in order to always keep your home exhibition eye-catching and fresh.

Eclectic art collection

If your collection of modern art consists of objects with the differing subject matter, varied styles and sizes or unique frames, you do not necessarily need to separate them. The collection will actually benefit most if you display it grouped together rather than each object separately. The larger your fine art collection, the more interesting each particular work of art will appear as a group and individually. So how to arrange such a collection? First of all, place the largest paintings and only then use the smaller ones to fill in the gaps. Try to keep the space between art pieces uniform and small to create a feeling of cohesion instead of scattering the art. Another important question is how to work out the right configuration for an eclectic art collection without damaging it? Surely, to use real fine art pieces while trying to find the configuration you like is not a wise idea. So cut out the templates, for example, from a kraft paper, and move them around the wall to find out the most visually pleasing and balanced grouping. Don’t forget about symmetry!

In fact, there are no strict rules about how to display and hang the art collection. Everything depends on the collection and available space.
