The right Height when Decorating a Wall
When it comes to decorating walls with art work, mirrors, or shelves how do you know what the right height is? Better yet, what size should the items have?
Believe it or not there are actually rules for hanging items on a wall. When choosing art work there are a few rules to keep in mind. First determine where a piece will go before making a purchase. The piece of art that will hang over that item should be ¾ the size of the item. When it is time to hang it use two fists to measure up from the piece you are hanging it above.
Mirrors are an elegant way to add style to any room. Avanti Furniture has a nice selection of decorative mirrors to choose from like the Marguerita. When hanging a mirror the most important issue is what you want it to reflect. Measure where the mirror will hang to be sure it is not too big for the space. Before hanging the mirror stand where it will hang and look in the opposite direction, this will allow you to see what will be reflected in the mirror. A mirror used as decoration may be hung to reflect only the ceiling.
When putting up wall shelves the most important thing to consider is the weight of the items being displayed. Wall shelves are a great way to add space to a room. Make sure the shelf and its contents will not be bumped in any way to avoid breakage and injuries. Take a look at the modular wall units available at Avanti Furniture, they are very sophisticated and offer plenty of space to display items.
Consider using a collage of art work to decorate a wall. Multiple images relating to each other can be found usually in three or four pieces. A variety of art work sets are available in Avanti, some are framed and others are unframed. When using multiple pieces of art work that are unframed place them 3 inches apart from each other. If you are only able to purchase a set of two using two mirrors to create a four piece collage works nicely. You may also want to place a shelf between two pieces of art work or two mirrors. Using the Rubios mirrors from Avanti Furniture will allow you to create a nice mirror collage.
Whatever your inspiration for creating an interesting and attractive wall is, you’ll find the right items at Avanti Furniture in Weston, FL.
