Introducing the Happy Wife Picture Hanging System by artitec

 


Who would like to mount or hang their prized artwork or family photos in a manner that allows the picture position to change without leaving any nasty holes in the wall? We at Southern Picture Framers can help you to do just that with the Happy Wife Picture Hanging System service.

This proven system is suitable for mums and dads with many pictures to hang, both large and small. Whether you have a new or older home, we can transform it ideally to establish a family wall or art gallery right in your own abode.

The picture rail is available in three shades, cream, brushed silver and black. The rail is clipped to the lugs, which are screwed to the wall. A clear plastic cord hangs from the rail and one or two hooks thread on, so as to allow for height adjustments. The clear cord also can be moved along the length of the rail to create the perfect positioning. The rails come in 3 metre lengths and can be cut or joined according to wall length. We can offer a free demonstration of it in our show room at 7A Cornwall Street Bunbury.

The whole system comes with a 100% no fuss money back guarantee on all materials!

The Bunbury Surf Club used this system in their club house to mount 60 club pictures and were relieved to have their frames out of storage with no possibility of insect damage and an impressive historical display without lots of nasty holes in the walls of the clubhouse.

 

"I have the system in three bedrooms and two living areas, displaying family photos, art and weddings. We are able to rearrange, add or change without any nasty holes, position perfectly and no repaint job to do."

Hanging Tips

Hanging pictures can be difficult, whether you're selecting the best placement for your wedding photos or a priceless Van Gogh!

 

Placement is the Key - Proper Positioning can make all the Difference

Art galleries use a standard rule of thumb of 60 inches from the floor to the centre of the art. This brings the focal point of the picture to eye level for most people. Positioning your central piece according to this rule typically works quite well and will make the most appealing presentation.

A key to remember when you're making your measurements and taping your faux art to the walls is that your picture will not be taped to the wall. You will be hanging it and most likely it will be hung from a cord or wire strung across the back.

Experiment and see how your picture hangs. You may actually want to measure how far up the artwork the nail will have to be placed and then keep this in mind before you start pounding nail holes into the wall.

Example Wall Set Up for a Series of Photographs

The centre of the art should be at the 60 inch mark. If you're hanging a series of pictures - say you want to place all four children's wedding photos around your own wedding photo and have decided that you want to set it up somewhat like the 5 on dice.

Once you've decided which child gets what corner and how far you will place them from your photo, you've created your artwork. From now on consider the entire collection of photos as one piece of art. It is the centre of this ensemble that becomes the focal point.

Obstacles Obscuring Sight

In some homes there are obstacles that make eye level an impossibility. You may have low hanging chandeliers, staircases, fireplaces and other non-moveable items you'll have to work around.

In these situations you may want to make cardboard cutouts that are the same size as your artwork and tape them to your wall. Place them in the spot you're considering and then stand back and see if you get the effect you're looking for.

Overpowering Artwork

Your effect can easily be ruined by artwork that overpowers your room. Instead select pieces that add interest and compliment your already existing pieces.

If you're going to hang something behind a couch then make sure the picture isn't wider than the couch, as this will create an imbalance that will distract guests.

In the same vein, several small photos can create an effect that's as dramatic as one large piece but can be just as distracting if they take up too much space. Remember that your eye basically sees the grouping as a single ensemble piece.

Hanging Art In Relation To Decor

Hanging artwork baffles many home decorators.


In general, artwork should be hung so that the centre point of the picture or grouping is at about eye level for the average person. While this won't be possible in every situation, it's a good guideline to keep in mind.

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. Tape the paper up on the wall as a template for picture hangers and you'll be done in no time.

Relate Art to Furniture Size

In general, when hanging art over a piece of furniture it should not be longer than the width of the furniture. For example, the artwork principle of being about 75% of the table's width.

Relate Art to Wall Size

Choose smaller pictures for narrow walls and larger works for big wall spaces. Here a hall wall is accentuated by hanging a set of six prints in a tall vertical arrangement. One or two larger vertical pictures could have been another possibility for this space.
