Moving to a new home is an exciting experience that can open up a world of possibilities and the opportunity to reinvent your space. It’s a chance to start fresh and create a space that truly reflects your style and personality. As you prepare to make the move, you may find yourself thinking about all the different ways you can reinvent your new space. Have you ever visited someone’s home and marvelled at how neatly their wall decor is done? Perhaps you have even toyed with the thought of replicating the same at your home, but never got an opportune time to do it. Or maybe there are constraints in your current home that have been preventing you from doing so. The good news is, with a new home, you can finally have the opportunity to bring to life the decor ideas you have always dreamed of. In this article we will explore how moving to a new home can be the perfect chance to unleash your creativity and transform your space into a beautiful, functional, and personalized sanctuary.
Wall decor comes in all shapes, sizes, and materials so you are only limited by your imagination when choosing what you want to hang on your walls. Popular options include canvas art, framed photographs, maps, sculptures, and recently, triptych photography which combines different images into one exceptional artwork. Whatever choices you make, one detail remains constant – the hanging process! If you nail it, excuse the pun, visitors will always marvel at your living space.
Deciding to do your wall hangings when moving into a new home gives you a unique perspective since you can explore the empty walls and rooms and formulate an idea of where to place your pieces. You also have an advantage since you can ask the moving crew to help you with the manual work of drilling or nailing the pieces in place if you engage professional relocation services like The Centric Moving Company.
Known Techniques for Perfect Wall Hangings
Wall decor looks better if the size is proportional to the wall size. If you hang a very small piece on a vast wall space, it will not look right even if the art piece is beautiful. You can overcome this by grouping several pieces to create the illusion of a larger artwork. The art pieces you group need not be the same size – you can place a large piece at the center and then surround it with the smaller ones, provided you space them symmetrically.
Maintain Eye Level
Where you place your artwork on a wall determines how well it is perceived. One simple trick to get the right look when hanging artwork and photos is ensuring the center is at eye level. If you need a more specific metric, you can measure 58 inches above the floor level and place your piece there. When our moving crews help you hang the pieces, you can stand back and guide them as they move the pieces around until you are satisfied, and then we can secure them in place.
Art Piece vs Furniture Size
How well an art piece fits in within your space can be influenced by the size of the furniture it hangs over. For better outcomes, the furniture width should be slightly more than that of the art piece. You will get the best look if your art is 50-75% the width of the furniture item. With a moving crew assisting you, it’s very easy to move the art or furniture items if you feel the initial placement is not right.
