Artwork in the home can bring a room together. It can make all of your accessories & cushions stand out & make a space feel warm & inviting. This is why art is so important when selling your home.

It can be quite daunting to put a hole in your wall, or for us as Property Stylist’s, someone else’s wall! In this industry we often hear “I don’t want any holes in my walls”, or “I don’t want to fix anything once the furniture has been removed”. Truth be told, a home needs art. No matter how good the furniture & accessories are, without art, the room will look incomplete & cold. A well chosen piece of art will tie your colour scheme together & will bring the room to life.

3M hook (I.E: Removable hooks) are a great solution if you or your Landlord don’t want holes in the wall. These are available from anywhere really (Woolies even stock them). They are also a good solution if your house has concrete/brick walls & you can’t use a normal nail. Be sure to get the right 3M hook suitable for the size & weight of your piece.

Double trouble

Hanging art is not as easy as it looks, especially if you have 2 or more pieces to hang next to each other. This is a trend that really seems to have taken off.

Thanks to technology these days its made it a little easier. All you will need is a ruler, a pencil and a level app on your iPhone/ device. Of course a second opinion is always helpful when hanging art & ensuring it is straight/centred.

 

If at first you don’t succeed, try & try again

If you hang a piece and its not quite as centered as you would’ve liked, don’t be afraid to try again. There is nothing worse than walking into a room & seeing a crooked or off centre piece of art. People will notice, whether prospective buyers or guests in your home. It is just one of those things that must be done right.
