To make your poster appear in the best way possible on your wall, and add the expression and the style that you want, I here have five good advises, that are worth incorporating into your decoration of the home.
- Always pick a frame that fits the poster
- Put up posters that matches the room
- Do not hang the posters too far from each other
- Use the right tools to hang the poster on the wall
1. Always pick a frame that fits the poster
The frame is half of the posters expression. The expression is different when you put the poster in a dark, light or black frame. If the frame is too small, you will have to cut the edges off the poster, which is not always easy - cutting straight is harder than you think when you only have one try. If the frame on the other hand is too big, the poster will sit loose in the frame, and you will struggle to make it fit perfectly in the middle of it. You can get used to many things, but no matter what, it will look wrong, and also very strange to pick a frame that does not fit the size of the poster. And so will the style and expression of the poster. Therefore, you should always consider whether it is the specific poster you like because of its colors and its look, or you are actually looking for a poster for your frame at home.

2. Put up posters that matches the room
When picking posters for the living room, kitchen or bedroom, it is important to look at the furnitures that the poster is going to hang above or beside. A small poster should hang above a small furniture or on a small wall. Big furnitures, couches and big walls can easily handle big frames. Always assess the poster to the object it hangs close to. A good rule of thumb is to hang the poster 15-20 centimeters from the object. This is the perfect distance, so the poster does not look like it is floating on the wall if it hangs too far away, or looks “squeezed in” on the wall, if it hangs too close to the object.
3. Do not hang the posters too far from each other
Posters should not hang too separated on the wall. If they hang too far from each other, it will look like they are floating on the wall, and it will look messy. Again, it is important ro remember the rule of thumb: hang the posters 15-20 centimeters from each other, and other furnitures and objects in the room.
4. Use the right tools to hang the poster on the wall
To make your poster hang on your wall the best way possible, take your time to get to know your wall. Is it plaster, brick or concrete? Use a prober tool/drill, and maybe even a wallplug. It can be difficult to drill the perfect holes in the wall, but the better the frame hangs on the wall, the better it looks. And do not forget you can reuse the hole
These were the four tips to make your poster appear as good as possible on the wall.
