Prints, prints and more prints!
Are you looking for that final detail to enhance the beauty of your room? Hildreths offers a wide variety of prints for every room in your home.
What ever is the piece or pieces that you chose, always remember:
- In general, artwork should be hung so that the center point of the picture or grouping is at about eye level for the average person.
- Another technique to remember is that a grouping of pictures should be thought of as one unit. Test an arrangement of pictures by laying everything out on a large table (or on the floor), playing with combinations until you hit upon one that works.
Laying them out on paper is even better since you'll be able to trace around each object and determine where picture hangers should be installed.
- Also, choose smaller pictures for narrow walls and larger works for big wall spaces.
- Finally, when hanging art over a piece of furniture it should not be longer than the width of the furniture.
