If you choose beautiful family portrait paintings for decorating your home, your home will be filled with new life and beauty. However, you should be very careful while choosing the place for hanging the portraits, as hanging them in wrong places can reduce their visual affect. You should hang the portraits in places from where they are clearly visible.
If you are getting new portrait paintings made, you can also plan out the portrait layout, colors and the frame according to the walls and the theme of the rooms where you are planning to hang them. However, if you already have some beautiful portraits to display, then too, you will surely find a perfect place for them in at least one of your rooms.
People generally opt for their dinning and living areas for displaying a family portrait. These areas are generally chosen by people, as both the family members as well as the guests, can adore the paintings at these places. However, there are other places too (which we often overlook), where these paintings might look better.
The entrance of our home and the hallway are two such places which are perfect for display in beautiful portrait paintings. It fact, displaying beautiful portraits at the entrance and welcoming your guest with a beautiful view, will be a great idea. You can also hang your favorite portrait paintings on the hallway wall and enhance their beauty by putting decorative walls lights by their side. The staircases are another great place to display portraits. When displayed on the staircases, the portraits get highlighted by themselves.
However, to retain the beauty of your portrait paintings for a long time, including displaying them at the right place you also need to take good care of them. While hanging them, you should ensure that they are hung with strong bolts. They should also be protected from dust and direct sunlight.
The portrait paintings are precious pieces of art. Therefore, take good care of them and display them in the most suitable places.
