How have frames and tables

on a wall and thus to harmonise its wall decor?


The wall decoration is very often composed of different frames and tables of different sizes, shapes and materials.


But how to hang so smooth it's different elements?


The first Council is to group your frames and tables based on a common criterion: the artist, the art style, size, orientation, theme, a dominant color, frame type...

In short, the goal is to find a unit, a thread to your wall decor.


The second Board  is well spread your tables based on their sizes. Indeed, the attachment of your tables will be more successful that you choose to hang your tables based on their format.

The size of your tables must be harmonious relative to the size of your wall: Don't place never a small painting on a large wall empty, however a large table can quite be installed on a small section of wall, this will particularly highlight.


The third Council  is to choose the right location for your frames and tables:




First of all avoid the too sunny locations, especially for watercolours and pastels, because colors would resist UV not a too strong dose. However, the modern printing technologies and materials that we use in the Decoboard ® process we allow us overcome this constraint.


Likewise prefer for the lighting of your systems tables low UV (led, light bulb low consumption). Avoid Halogen lighting that can harm your wall decor.




Just then the choice of the height of attachment of your table. There is a simple rule: your table should be hung at eye level! Obvious tell me you, however everyone has no eyes at the same height! So by convention, estimated that the proper height to hang a picture is 1.65 m from the ground. This height means in relation to the table Centre, and not at the height of the hook, setting your table.

Tip: how to calculate the location of the fixing of the picture on the wall?

By doing as follows, if you have multiple frames to hang you all your centers aligned. Here is the formula:

Measure the height of your table and divide by 2 (measure 1), then measure the distance between the top of the hook of the hook point and the top of the frame (measure 2).

Calculate: measure 1 - measure 2 = 3 measure

And finally, add 1.65 m to measure 3 and voila, you know or position your hook for your table.

Do so for all your tables, even of different sizes, and they will be all lined up by their centre.
