FOR PERFECT COHESION
Simply hanging up picture series
The interior design with picture series is a popular design element, but the hanging brings some challenges with it. The main aim of a series of pictures is to create visual cohesion and perfect harmony. This is achieved by taking a number of factors into account: We find the series of pictures to be harmonious if they are placed at the same height and with the same distance from each other, as the human eye prefers clear lines and symmetries. If you also use identical picture frames, the feeling of belonging is reinforced. Of course, you can also hang different frames, but please note that the motifs should be related to each other.
To make it easier for you to hang up picture series, we will explain below how you can simply and quickly attach the frames to the wall to give your rooms that special something. In our example we use three 90x90 cm CLASSIC magnetic frames in 14 black matt aluminium with matt white glass. The photo series is entitled "Venice" and was photographed by Sascha Hüttenhain.

Here's how it works:
1. Positioning the picture frame
First place the frames on the floor and position them as they will be hung up later to get a feel for the design. Place a cloth under the picture frames to keep the floor and frame scratch-free. Sleep on it for a night to make sure you have found the final arrangement.
Get the tools you need ready to have everything within reach later.
3. Determining height
Now determine the line on which the nails will be inserted. Measure from the center of the picture (center hole of the frame), with the ruler to the top edge of the planned hanging hole and add the amount to the 155cm. In our example: 155 cm + 30 cm = 185 cm.
7. Performing a check
Now check whether all measurements are correct. If you are unsure whether power lines run through the wall, check this with a line finder.
8. Attaching the nails
Now hammer the steel nails into the wall, but not too sharp, rather flat.
4. Positioning the line of the hanging points
Using a line laser, you can mark the axis of the hanging points by adjusting it to the axis of the hanging holes. In this case it is 185 cm. Using the laser, you can easily determine the exact horizontal position. Without a line laser or cross laser you have to measure one hole position to the ground and align the remaining holes horizontally with a long or extended spirit level, because the ground is not necessarily exactly straight.
5. Determining the horizontal nail position
Measure from the middle to the middle of the used hanging holes and divide the value by two. In our example: 70.5 cm / 2 = 35.25 cm
6. Marking the position of the nails
First mark the center of the center frame. (More wall design tips). Since the marking is covered by the frame, you can mark it with a small pencil point. Now mark the two positions of the nails by measuring the previously determined value from the center. Make your mark exactly at the height of the laser line. Then determine the center of the next frames and also mark the position of the nails for them.
In our example, the frames are centered on each of the three wall surfaces. Measure the width of the wall and determine the center. From this point, measure the distance between the hanging holes on the left and right and mark the points with a pencil.
Use the cleaning cloth to remove dust and fingerprints from the glass pane.
The mounting of your picture series is quick and easy with this method. The pictures are shown to their best advantage and your wall is designed stylishly. Enjoy your work and the great wall design.
9. Final control
Hang up the picture frames and carry out a final check with the spirit level.
The ideal height for images is 155 cm from the floor to the center of the image. So the center of the picture is perfectly at eye level. The advantage of HALBE frames is that the position of the suspension holes is always exactly the same for frames of one size.
