How to hang pictures – match art to shape of walls

When choosing art for your home or office, consider the shape of your walls and place pieces to fit the space. Like attracts like.

For example, a tall vertical piece perfectly complements a tall wall space.

Large scale vertical

 If you don’t have a tall vertical piece, use two or more pieces in a group to create the size you need.

Large vertical display brick wall

Similarly, a horizontal wall will shine with a horizontal piece.

Tip - large horizontal piece

Several white identical frames and mats were grouped together to create the illusion of one large horizontal piece.
