We built our house 20 years ago this past May at the same time as we were planning our wedding. Organizing both of them all under 5 months was quite a challenge, but we made it work. We received the keys to our new home the day before we got married, so we just dropped off our clothes and headed out the door. To make it special, we both wanted to live in the house only once we were married. I really enjoyed being part of the entire building process, from helping design the floor plans to choosing the colours for the inside walls. The living room, dining room, and kitchen area is all open concept with cathedral ceilings. I love the heights and the look of it, except it’s still a challenge even to this day for me to know how to properly display the main wall in the living room with photos, art frames, or pictures. I seem to always end up with just one big frame in the middle of the wall.
I have been looking at different types of patterns to hang frames on a wall via the internet and found these ones:
I have to admit that I had no idea that I could use so many combinations of frame sizes on a wall. I am really impressed as the designs all look wonderful. I definitely have the space on my wall to create any of these patterns, but do I want to make holes in the wall for all of them? This means if I decide to change the pattern, I will have to fix them and most likely repaint the wall. I enjoy how Galleries hang their photos to look so elegant and sophisticated, therefore when I found that their secret was using hanging rails, I looked into it.
The track is installed on the wall, and the cables hang from the track while the hooks connects the frame to the cable. The track can stay there forever on the wall, but I can change the cables heights or add new ones to create different patterns. This is definitely a solution to not having to fix holes in the wall every time I decide to redecorate.
Do you use hanging rails to hang your frames?
