DIY decorators often wonder where they should hang artwork.
Our take? Don’t be roomist when it comes to hanging art.
If there’s wall space, then there’s an opportunity to display something to elevate the room, whether it’s the dining room, kitchen, bathroom, or the ‘dad’ toilet that everyone else in the family is low-key terrified to enter.
What you do need to do though, is to consider each room’s unique environment when choosing pieces to ensure their longevity.
For example, if a wall space above a heater gets hot, choose a piece that will withstand the heat, or one that’s inexpensive enough to replace if it doesn’t hold up.
Or if your bathroom gets steamier than a scene from Fifty Shades, select a piece that won’t be too affected by the moisture in the air.
Art prints on canvas are ideal, as they generally have a protective coating – just stay away from anything behind glass, and definitely don’t hang spendy fine art, just in case.
