How to convert your empty space into wall pictures
If you’re like me who once had an empty wall staring right back at me, then you might at one point thought of what you could do with it. Well I’ve the perfect idea for you; turn it into a picture wall (oh mine, I sound like a rapper).
It’s no news that picture walls have been gaining popularity these days. And people setting up picture walls has made it known that the size of your wall doesn’t even have to matter. What really matters is you setting it up so it could add luxury and style or your home.
But don’t let the idea of having a picture wall get you too excited that you’ll dive right into it. I must warn you that setting up one requires planning and the test of your patience. First, you’ll need to carefully pick pictures you’ll want displayed on the wall and then have them framed. I think this might be the most difficult process in setting up your picture wall.
Here are some things you’ll need to turn your empty space into a wonder (Picture wall)
Choose your pictures: The first thing you should do is to get your art pieces together. Make this part exciting for yourself and kids. Important recommendation is for you to follow a pattern. Is there a particular story you’d want the picture wall to tell? Maybe a family history or a place of interest you’ve visited. Pay attention to see that there is a seamless transition in colours.
Select frames: Consideration should be given to each piece of art or photo when selecting a frame. You’ve two options to pick from. You can decide to choose the same colour or same design frame for all your art pieces or you can simply make them all distinct from each other by selecting them in different colours and designs.
One good thing about selecting different frame designs is how interesting it makes each art or photo unique. This way, each art and photo will be admired and appreciated separately.
On the other hand, when speaking of having same colour shades, your picture wall will simply be stylish.
Map it out: Mapping out the particular space you need to display your pictures will make the whole process easy for you. Map out each space to fill in a particular size of frame and then go ahead to secure each area using your pencil. This way, you can be able to make adjustments without causing damage with too many hole nails hammered into the wall. Once you’ve done this, the next step will be simply to hang the pictures up on the wall.
Time to hang it up: Hanging your pictures on the wall will now be a very easy process for you. Be mindful to arrange the pictures according to their sizes. Ideally, similar pairs should be hung together and be broken with a bigger size frame. This pattern would actually make way for the pictures to be admired independently of each other.
A bigger single size is needed. The size should be the picture that means more to you to form the focal point of your picture wall. But to avoid it from completely making the other pictures hide from view, do not hang it in the middle of the picture wall. It should be hung slightly away from the centre and made to tilt to the side.
And that’s it!
