Gallery owners and museum curators, however, swear by the 60 inches on center rule. This means that you measure up 60 inches from the ground to find the spot where the center of a piece of art should be on the wall. It works well in many situations, but there are some cases when you may want to alter the height, if you are shorter than the average person, try 57 inches on center, if the art work is an unusual size or shape that looks unnatural at that height.
You could also find a wonderful art print or oversized mirror framed in reclaimed wood or metal. Large pieces like these not only make short work of large walls, they are also excellent conversation starters and can even lend added drama to a room when they cast shadows at certain times of day. Another tip is to hang similar objects in pairs or triptychs. After all, three prints are better than one when it comes to large walls.
Use these wall decorating ideas throughout your home to keep yourself visually engaged in your space every day and to take visitors on a compelling journey through your interests, loves and experiences. Is your space all set up with the perfect furniture, but still feels kind of vanilla? Do you live in a modern tract home with big, impossible walls to fill?
Do not get hung up on hanging, either. To inject a more casual and calm atmosphere into the room, consider leaning your wall art like our wooden wall art on a shelf or up against a wall, if it is a particularly large or tall canvas. So hopefully with our tips today, your chosen wall art can now be displayed confidently and with pride.
