Tip Tuesday: Build The Look On The Floor Before Hanging on the Wall


An easy way to perfect a multiple frame display is to lay them out on the floor to determine the best possible arrangement before hanging. Imagine a vertical line running through the middle of your display. Check that items on either side of that line are visually equal in weight. Balance colored items, light and dark pieces and different shapes for both sides. Move the pieces around until you find the right combination. This will also help you determine the right spacing between each piece.

When you think you have the right combination, take a photo – yes, of all the frames on the floor. Hop on a chair and take the picture looking straight down. You’ll be amazed how this will help you notice things that you didn’t see the first time. A simple tip that will save you time and potential mistake holes too.
