Does Your Artwork Fit In Its Space?

Use painters tape to mock up your art on the wall to make it's the right size

If you’re not sure whether a piece of artwork is the right size for your wall space, map it out with Painter’s Tape just like we did here. This will help you visualize and instantly confirm if the dimensions are right. It’s easy to do and you’ll be amazed at how well it works.

Before you head out shopping for art, size up the space where you want to hang your piece with tape, write down the dimensions, take a picture and carry the information with you. It’ll save you tons of time and end the risk of getting something too small or too big for the space you need to fill.
