A common mistake when hanging framed artwork is related to placement, hanging the frame too high or too low.
The trick is to keep things at eye level, especially when hanging the frame over furniture such as a bed or sofa. A good rule of thumb is to leave at least 6 inches between the top of the furniture and the bottom of the frame to allow space.
Before knocking any nails into place, you can use painter's tape or kraft paper to plan your location to get an idea of all the appearance after completion. Use these materials to make a "real-scale template", which is just a paper cut or tape outline of the same size and shape as the frame.
To prevent your frame from scratching the wall and keep it level, please use a self-adhesive bumper at the bottom corner of the back of the frame before hanging. All Level frames should be equipped with felt or plastic bumpers, which you can use in the last step.
Some people can decorate perfectly without worrying about choosing the wrong color and possibly losing the entire room. For the rest of us, the temptation to make everything match-just to make things simple-is undeniably powerful.
There is no fear. We are here to tell you that you can mix and match frame colors. In fact, it adds personality and variety that a monochromatic appearance may lack.
