How To Hang Your Metal Wall Art Panels

If you are reading this, you are likely the owner of one of our handmade metal wall art panel pieces or considering purchasing a piece and curious about how to properly hang your new wall art panels.  We are so pleased you are supporting our unique, handmade artwork and know you want your art to look its utmost best when displayed on your wall.  Below are instructions and helpful tips for how to hang your wall art to complement your home décor. 

 

Step 1 - Choose Your Space

Choose the right space to display your wall art.  The wall should be proportionate to the size of wall art you are hanging.  If you are hanging your wall art panels above a piece of furniture, a good rule of thumb is to look for wall art that is about two-thirds the length of the furniture.  Many design experts also suggest hanging your art with the center of the piece measuring 57” from the floor because it is the average line of sight.

Choosing the Correct Size

Step 2 - Use the Measuring Tool

 We include a helpful measuring tool with most multi-panel art pieces to make hanging your wall art as easy as possible.  The template includes the suggested 1" spacing between panels for optimal display.  Simply tape the template to your wall and mark the points on the wall where your nails or screws will go.  We suggest using a level to ensure alignment.  After attaching your nails/screws to the wall, remove the template and get ready to hang your new metal wall art panels!

Measuring Tool Example

Please note: due to a variety of wall types, we do not include nails/screws to hang your wall art.  Find out which type of nail or screw is recommended for your wall type.  Jon's handmade art is made from lightweight aluminum, so you will find it easy to handle the artwork.  

 

Step 3 - Bend the Pre-Installed Brackets

Most of Jon’s metal panel art comes with pre-installed brackets that can be bent to display the art about 2” off the wall.  For added dimension and depth, we suggest hanging your art with this added 2” (rather than flat against the wall).  Simply remove each panel from its packaging and place face-down on a soft surface. Use your hand to brace the center of the bracket and bend the bracket upwards along the perforation to form a 90 degree angle.  Then, bend the outer perforation towards the edge of the panel to create another 90 degree angle.  Repeat for brackets on each panel.

Step 4 - Hang Your Wall Art

Line up the slot in the bracket with your nail/screw in your wall to hang your wall art and repeat with the remaining panels.  You now have a beautiful piece of handmade metal art displayed on your wall!  

 

 

Cleaning & Care

We recommend wearing white cotton gloves when handling artwork to avoid any fingerprints.  To remove fingerprints from all silver metal art, use a soft white cloth with rubbing alcohol.  For painted artwork, wipe with a damp cloth.
