I have three different sized paintings I want to hang down one side of a 14 mtr hallway with 12 ft ceiling. I have a long row of smaller pictures hanging on the opposite wall all parallel and spaced evenly from and to each other. The three paintings all have the same frame style but are different sizes. Two will hang landscape style and the other portrait style. My question is: How should I hang the pictures in relation to the picture rail? Should they all be the same distance from beneath the rail to the top of the frame? Or should the centre of each painting be in line irrespective of the top of the frame? I would normally hang them the second way, but as the opposite wall is very neat and symmetrical, I am thinking the larger art needs to also be in-line??? Please help! Thank you »
2. Wipe down books and dust the bookshelves. A microfiber cloth makes for a great duster because it traps and removes dust instead of spreading it around. Take out every book and dust every nook and cranny. Wipe down each book, especially your child's well-thumbed copies, which almost always have remnants of their afternoon snacks lodged in between pages.
These bookcases have the look I want on the far wall, with mirrors above to reflect the windows in the kitchen. Of course, the bookshelves must be arranged nicely, not filled like this with just books.
