Selecting the Ideal Scale Size

Your Guide to Creating Impactful Displays

Choosing the right size for your Scales wall art is more than just a matter of fit; it's about making a statement in your space.

With Scales being uniquely square and combinable, they offer a versatile approach to creating art installations that suit any room's needs, whether horizontally or vertically. This guide will help you navigate the nuances of picking the perfect size for your Scales, with some focus on forming captivating pillars of art and encouraging creative displays.


1. Understanding the Impact of Size

  • Why Larger Scales Make a Statement: Opting for larger Scales, or combining multiple pieces, creates a commanding presence in any room. These larger installations draw the eye and become central storytelling elements, filling your space with narrative and visual interest.
  • Visualizing Your Space: Use painter's tape or paper cut-outs to mock up potential layouts on your walls. This step is crucial in seeing how different sizes, or combinations of Scales, can transform a room's aesthetic and feel.


2. Embracing the Square: Combinatorial Artistry

  • Creating Your Narrative: Each Scale is a piece of a larger story. By combining multiple Scales, you can create custom diptychs, triptychs, or larger multi-panel artworks. This flexibility allows you to craft a narrative that is uniquely yours, whether it fills a wall, stretches wide across a room or builds upwards in a stunning vertical display.
  • Sizing for Cohesion: A general guideline is to have your combined Scales cover 50%-75% of your available wall space. This proportion creates a harmonious balance between your art and the room, ensuring your installation is both impactful and integrated.


3. Pillars of Art: Vertical Space Transformation

  • Revolutionizing Narrow Spaces: The square nature of Scales makes them perfect for creating vertical pillars of art. These vertical installations are ideal for narrow, often unused spaces in homes, bringing life and dynamism to areas that traditionally go underutilized.
  • Encouraging Creativity: Explore the vertical potential of Scales. Stack them to create towering pillars of art, turning a narrow wall into a focal point of your home. This approach not only utilizes space effectively but also adds an element of surprise and creativity to your decor.


4. The Bold Choice: Going Big

  • Maximizing Impact: When in doubt, go big. Larger installations of Scales create immersive experiences, enveloping the viewer in the artwork. This is especially true for gallery walls or vertical pillars, where the collective impact of multiple Scales completely transforms a space.
  • Flexibility with Smaller Collections: If you start with smaller sets of Scales, you can still create an eye-catching display. Consider grouping them in smaller areas, or strategically place them to lead the eye through a space, creating visual interest and narrative flow.


5. Perfect Placement for Ultimate Impact

  • Height Matters: The center of your Scale installation should be at eye-level, approximately 57 inches from the floor, to create an engaging experience. For installations above furniture, maintain a minimum 6 to 12 inch gap to give the artwork room to breathe and ensure it remains the focal point.
