Today I rehung a whole wall of images in my apartment in the space of about 90 minutes. No mess, no power tools, no plaster, sanding and repainting of a wall turned in to swiss cheese with a fixed hook system.
Initial layout - Reasonably satisfactory but with an irritating gap on the top left
Having been down to the framers to pick up a new set of prints of some of my Instagram shots, I was able to completely re-organise the Black-and-White Wall in my apartment.
The initial hanging layout was a little out of balance.
The final layout is a lot more balanced and is open to further fine tuning over the coming weeks, with the flexibility to further adjust vertical and horizontal separation whilst maintaining the overall image positioning
New layout - a more satisfactory mix with a comfortable asymetrical but balanced arrangement of images
Picture hanging systems feature widely in galleries but provide great versatility in the home. They provide the capability of reorganising images quickly around a new purchase, a simple desire to create a new look on a wall or the need to re-arrange around changes to home furnishings.
The systems are simple and easy to self install. They remain a great investment for both owners and renters alike by allowing changes of hanging positions to be made without having to hack in to the structure of the home.
My personal picks of providers - Both use slightly different systems but hangers, rails and hooks are largely interchangeable.
