Arrange Your Pictures
Tips for How to Arrange Your Wall Decoration
Your prettiest pictures – will look great as wall decorations on linen, acrylic glass, aluminium and more give every room an individual touch. Properly arranging each work is decisive for how well the arrangement will work. Below we’ll show you a few of the best ways to hang your photos harmoniously and stylishly.
Align the Pictures Along a Single Axis
A popular and neat idea is to align the lower edges of the pictures on an imaginary line. It’s simple and easy to do and you don't necessarily need a narrow picture rail to lean the pictures against the wall. Instead of the lower edge of the picture, you can also use the upper edge to align your wall decoration. Aligning along an imaginary line is great for a small number of wall decorations or for larger pictures. If you choose aluminium Dibond, HD metal print, gallery print or acrylic glass plate, your favourite photos will look fantastic thanks to rich colours and deep contrasts.
Arrangement Along a Middle Line
Arranging your pictures along a line in the middle, as commonly seen in museum exhibitions. It works well for larger format pictures. Use a spirit level to determine a line along the middle of the wall and place the middle of every picture or the horizontal space between the pictures along it.
Arrange Your Pictures as a Collage
A picture collage is generally arranged around an invisible cross. The images are aligned along the two vertical and horizontal lines, their edges as close as possible to the intersection of the axes. This arrangement works well with a larger number of pictures, as you can expand it in all directions. You can add a bit more variety by mixing some wall decorations: e.g. canvases, wooden wall displays, and a few aluminium mini wall decorations.
Pro Tip: Hang Pictures at the Optimal Height
Nothing beats your own taste, but quite often pictures are hung too high. The rule of thumb: The centre of the picture should lie around 1.5 meters above ground (as always, the exception proves the rule). The height of the ceiling is not terribly important. With particularly high ceilings rather the size of the photo itself becomes more important.
Hang Pictures from the Outside Inward
Imagine a box around a large wall space. The pictures follow the outer edge of the box and fill the inner space. This arrangement is particularly suitable for many pictures varying in formats and sizes. The illustrated example shows a large variety of templates for photo canvases.
Some photos deserve a special place on the wall. Discover the perfect wall decoration in XXL format for your very best pictures and showcase them on your wall. On a large wall, you can let your favourite photo speak for itself as an XXL wall decoration and give it centre stage.
Hang Pictures with the Same Format
An impressive gallery can be assembled quite quickly from a few photos of the same size, for example, using Photo canvases or wooden wall displays. Square formats will look particularly good. If you symmetrically arrange small pictures with the same formats, you can create a stylish and compact picture layout that will give your room nice even lines. Discover the Mini Wall Decorations in various mini sizes with super simple magnetic fasteners. Choose from colour-coordinated photos and make sure that the pictures hang parallel and on the same line for each row, as small misalignments will be more noticeable if the formats are the same.
Classic: Your best photos in a picture frame
If you want to create a classic photo wall with a picture frame, you can easily order your photos as prints and frame them. For larger formats, you can order a Photo poster with a full-size picture or a colourful collage. The Adhesive Photo Poster is perfect if you like to change your decorations from time to time as they are easy to move. The self-adhesive back of the photo poster sticks to many different surfaces and is reusable.
As an alternative to the classic picture frame, you can have your pictures printed on canvas and order matching frames. The wooden frame with a shadow gap is specially designed for the photo canvas. Available in either white or black, it enhances your canvases for the perfect look on your wall.
