How Neuroscience Helps You Hang Art

by | Mar 5, 2024 | blog, Style

Something exciting happened recently and we have to spill the tea. The Washington Post contacted our owner and creative director, Lee, to interview her for an article – Neuroscience has answers for the best ways to hang your art. Who knew that neuroscience helps you hang art?? Not only is this a fascinating topic on its own (brains are neat) but tying in science with how to hang art? Mind blown. All of information found in the article is super helpful, especially if you’re one of the many who struggle with how to approach hanging art. It can certainly be a daunting task but this info will definitely give you a better starting point.

The article touches on some of the following:

  • how to consider height, symmetry and balance for the most appealing result
  • how using art is an easy way to surround yourself with memories and things that mean a lot to you
  • what are you trying to achieve with your art?
  • sometimes, a grid is the easiest way to start
  • don’t forget to lay it all out BEFORE you start hammering into your walls

Hanging art seems pretty easy and you can certainly slap up anything randomly on a wall. But if you’re really going for maximum impact, we really suggest following some or all of these guidelines/principles/ideas so you can achieve a cohesive and INTENTIONAL look, not accidental. If you’re still curious about how neuroscience helps you hang art, click on the image below to read the entire article (which we absolutely recommend). As always, if you’re still a little lost and want to reach out and schedule a remote design consultation, we’re happy to help, big or small. Happy hammering!
