How To Hang Art On Wallpaper

April 7, 2023

Art on wallpaper can be an excellent way to dress up your space without having to paint it. With so many styles and patterns available, there's sure to be something that fits perfectly in your space. Whether you prefer classic art deco styling or contemporary abstract artwork, there are plenty of choices for everyone.

How High Should You Hang Art on Wallpaper?

Most interior designers recommend hanging pictures at eye level - around 57 inches (145 cm) above the floor. This keeps artworks from stretching too far out. Additionally, balance both art and wallpaper by hanging larger items against smaller ones for balance and visual interest.

Frames Against Wallpaper

When hanging an art piece, the color of its frames should also be taken into account. Different frame shades can add a unique flair to the artwork itself. The more neutral your choice in frame color, the easier it will be to blend in with other decor in the room.

Use colored or neutral frames against a busy wallpaper to add visual interest and definition. However, for an eclectic style, only using two or three frame colours will do. Afterward, introduce other hues into the decor to tie in with these frames and create visual interest.

Do You Need a Big Artwork?

If your wall space is large, using artwork may be beneficial. This will break up the repeat pattern on wallpaper and provide an eye-catching focal point for the room. However, be careful not to make the space feel overrun with items; too much busy-ness could prove overwhelming in the end.

An existing fireplace can be transformed into a focal point with artwork hanging above. Hanging pictures over the mantel will add character and warmth to the room, while providing some ambience as well.
