Step 2: Plan on the Foor
Lay out your collection on the floor, starting from the centre. Decide whether you prefer a neat linear arrangement or a more eclectic, off-kilter style. Allow for space between each artwork, adjusting the gap based on size. Boost your confidence by tracing your pieces on colored paper, experimenting with arrangements on the wall using low-tack masking tape. Pro tip: Aim for one extra-large, two large, two medium, and three small artworks for a balanced and visually stunning mix!
Step 3: Bring Your Vision to Life
Ready to take the plunge? It's hammer time! Mark your nail locations, use a level for precision, and ensure your creations grace the wall perfectly aligned. Worried about the physical installation?
