Where Should Your Portrait Hang?

You've had the portrait taken. Now it's time to decide where to display it in your home. The biggest question is always what size should it be enlarged too? Too small and it won't have an impact, too large and it overpowers the room. 

Consider where you will stand in relation to viewing your portrait. Hung in a hallway the image doesn't need to be as large because it will be viewed at a close distance. If it will hang over the fireplace, then the size may have to be much larger to fill the space appropriately.

I've an easy solution to this pondering. Send me a picture of the area you'd like to display the wall portrait and I'll provide the proper size for that space.

Where will you hang it?

Choose a location that doesn't get full sun.

Your portrait arrives with a special sealant to protect it from harmful UV rays.

Placement

A 20x16 is centered with 10x8's on the sides.

These canvas prints don't need frames.

Choose the Best Value Package to incorporate the wall portrait into your investment. This is really the minimum size that works in most homes. If the placement requires a larger wall portrait, then the credit will be applied to the next size up.

20 x 16

This is the right size that this image should be displayed in this space.

It is also at a good height to allow a chair, side table and lamp to be placed below it.

Too Small

24x16 is lost on a high ceiling wide wall.

Consider the height of the ceilings, how far away you'll be standing and the size of the furnishings within the space.

Also, from this far across the room, the faces in the portrait can not be enjoyed.

Just Right

40x30 fits well!

The faces can be seen clearly from across the room.

When you take the photo of the wall make sure to tape a sheet of paper where you expect to hang the portrait. With an 11" piece of paper the program can show the acurate size for the wall portrait.

Impact

Here a black mat is used to increase the overall print size. The portrait is 24x16, but the mat & frame creates a 32x24 wall portrait.
