  4. If you prefer to place the painting above your sofa, you should place at about 6-9 inches above it.

  6. You painting can help absorb the noise and pull away the empty sound.
  7. The paintings could add spice to a room. You could change the ambiance of the room by just hanging pictures in a specific ways and places.
  8. Adding paintings with horizontal lines can make your room look longer. Horizontal lines can create illusions to your room.

  12. Looking for a perfect place to hang your abstract painting depends on the type of look you want to make.

Putting lighting in the art will bring out highlights of the painting that you may not even notice.
  13. Paintings made with ink, pencil, charcoal, watercolors or pastels should be framed with glass or Plexiglas. There should also be a mat board between the art and the frame. On the other hand, Acrylic paintings are more study so no need to put frames on them. As a matter of fact, you should not cover oil or acrylic paintings with glass because they need to have air on them.
