There are also large format canvases or removable wallpaper murals you can use to create a big, dramatic focal point. Last thing, choose art that is vibrant or graphic or powerful. Otherwise, what is the point? Next, decide how high to hang your wall art. Wall art height is the concept that goes wrong the most. The general rule of thumb is to hang wall art at your sight line, so you do not have to look up too high or too low at it.
If you love the look of a gallery wall, but would also like to avoid the task of spacing and hanging everything just right, get a similar effect by using floating shelves and picture ledges. These unobtrusive shelves are easy to hang, try grouping two or three on a wall together. They are great for displaying a mix of framed photos and art alongside interesting items like small plants, carefully curated antique knickknacks, table clocks and stoneware vases.
Instead of forking over a hefty chunk of change for a woven wall hanging, make your own. Frame this common thrift store find for a pop of color on your wall. Choose a scarf with an intricate pattern for more visual impact. Buy an inexpensive ceiling medallion at a home improvement store to mount on your wall rather than the ceiling.
If you are hanging art above a piece of furniture, leave between 3 and 8 inches of space above a sofa or table. Filling a large wall space can be intimidating, and one of the easiest wall decoration ideas is to rely on a single large piece to do the job. This can be an original painting or a large scale fine art photograph, both can be expensive options, so take the time to visit galleries, meet artists and find a work you absolutely love.
