If you're unfamiliar with the fundamentals of hanging picture frames or just looking for pointers, we're here to help make your experience better. For frames that are a bit larger, a hanging wire attached to the two side rails is the way to go. The wire can safely bear more weight and is easily attached to the back of your frame with d-rings. Two hooks 10" to 12" apart from one another will bear the weight of a heavy frame and pull it in close to the wall.
The trick is to keep things around eye-level, especially when hanging your frame above a piece of furniture like a bed or couch. A good rule of thumb is to leave at least 6" between the top of the furniture and the bottom of the frame for breathing room.
Before you hammer any nails in place, you can plan out your placement with painter's tape or kraft paper to provide an idea of how everything will look when finished. Use the materials to make a "true-scale template", which is just a paper cutout or tape outline the same size and shape as the frames.
Some people can decorate flawlessly, without any fear of choosing the one wrong color and potentially throwing off the whole room. Get creative with your combinations, mixing different wood tones together or throwing in some gold or silver frames with a glossy finish to make things pop. Alternate black and white frames to liven up even the most minimalist space, and hang large pieces alongside smaller ones to create a gallery wall that plays to your personal style. When mixing frame colors and textures, try to stick to two to three sizes to make sure there's some repetition that ties everything together.
