How to Hang Pictures Around Your Contemporary Entertainment Center

Proportions hold the key in effectively arranging your pictures around your contemporary entertainment center. A popular focal point in many dens, entertainment centers come with various geometric formats. The tall and rectangular ones balance with pictures that echo their shape. On the other hand, low and horizontal ones allows for grouping. Square or near square versions have a tendency to dominate the wall. Therefore, to ensure a successful picture arrangement, start by analyzing the relevant shapes.
For tall, vertical entertainment centers
Beside a tall and off-center walnut entertainment center against a taupe wall, hang a vertical picture with a bronze frame. Do not align the picture with the TV to avoid visual competition. On the walnut shelves of the entertainment center, easel-back frames with lighter bronze shades will relate to the first frame, while a dark bronze pendant gives added visual appeal.
For low, horizontal entertainment centers
A trio of pictures will give that striking effect when set above a low, horizontal and antique black entertainment center. Over your large TV, put in center a long and horizontal frame with a mat that is bigger or weighted on the sides. Hang a matching silver frame over it so that its bottom right corner is aligned with the middle of the center frame. In the upper right space, balance the grouping with a medium-sized antique black frame. This should also relate with the other antique black pieces.
For square entertainment centers
Because of its size, a centered position is usually best for a square or almost square entertainment center. Above a shabby-chic entertainment center, hang various plain and distressed frames with the bottom edges touching the top edge of the entertainment center. Overlapping frames that appear to lean on the wall will correspond to the informal look of a room. In informal dens, symmetrical alignment above an entertainment center should give a harmonious look.
