Avoid these 3 mistakes when getting your wall design set up

Want your Pixum Wall Art to be fabulous and the centre of attention? After all, your best images should enhance the room visually, instead of just blending into the background! To do so, make sure to avoid the following three mistakes

Memories kept for ever

#1: Too orderly or too chaotic

If you hang up several Wall Prints, you will have to find the perfect balance between order and chaos. If the images hang too symmetrically or too accurately, this comes across as boring. Too much chaos, on the other hand, is also not useful: hanging the images criss-crossed without any line in the entire room, no one really draws attention - your wall art remain more or less without effect. That is why we give you some tips for the golden mean between order and chaos:

  • mount your pictures in a slightly asymmetrical fashion, but follow a plan (e.g. the golden section or the Petersburg hanging style)
  • avoid complete chaos with absolutely no structure, where the images hang together or all over the show
  • purely symmetrical and geometrical hanging works fine with picture frames of the same size with passepartout. In the ideal case, they also contain images that are logically or optically connected with a theme or a common colour

#2: A wild and unruly mix of material

Whether it's a group of classic frames or Pixum Wall Art - a wild and unruly mix of raw materials brings unrest straight into your living room and the eye does not know where to look first. Therefore: opt for the best product type or combine a maximum of two mutually related or mutually similar types of wall images to avoid a confusing look in your room. For example, Gallery Print and Acrylic Glass Photos can easily be combined with one another due to the identical surface. Also, Aluminium Print fits well with Gallery Prints.

If a product already has a particular surface finish, you should use combinations sparingly. This applies, for example, to a Wood Print, since none of the other Pixum wall art has a comparable surface structure. However, Framed Prints with massive wooden frames and classical mounts (also known as passepartout) would make a good composition with wood prints.

#3: Mind the lighting situation

Lighting plays an important role in photography, but you should also take it into account when designing the wall. Otherwise, you'll have to work around:

  • light reflections: Pixum Wall Art that has a surface like acrylic glass, as is the case in the Gallery Print or the Acrylic Print, will reflect light just like any other glass surface. If, for example, direct sunlight hits the glass, one can't really see the picture
  • dark and dusky corners: If you hang a wall art with bright colours in a dark corner with very little light, one will not be able to enjoy its colours in full range. An additional source of light, which is directing at the piece, would be the ideal solution. But beware: For images with muted colours, a darker corner is just the right choice
  • pale and muted colours If you place a bright image directly against the window or apply far too much light by using an artificial light source, the colours will look pale
