Hang Artwork at the Appropriate Height

When it comes to decorating, one of the most common rookie mistakes is hanging artwork too high. When hanging art above furniture, such as a sofa or console table, the distance between the painting and the top of the furniture should be around six to nine inches.

If there is no furniture beneath the artwork, it should be hung at eye level or about 57 inches from the ground. Plan on the middle of the entire arrangement being at eye level for a gallery wall, and leave about two to three inches between each item to allow for breathing room.

Don’t go overboard with the uniformity.

While purchasing a matching furniture set may be easy, your space may end up appearing like something out of a furniture magazine. Matching the end tables to the coffee table and the TV stand will make the space appear bland and uninteresting.

Mix things up with furniture items that are complementary but not identical. Shapes can be used to add variation. If you have a square end table and a rectangular media cabinet, a round coffee table will add interest.

Add Light by Hanging a Mirror

A mirror can almost certainly be found in every room of the house. Mirrors reflect light and make a room appear larger. Hanging a mirror opposite a window, allowing the mirror to reflect the natural light, is a simple technique.

A mirror can be hung almost anywhere, but some tried and true spots are above a console table, as part of a gallery wall, over a bedroom dresser, and above the living room sofa.

Increase the size of your windows

Curtains can make or break a room depending on their height. If you hang them too low, the entire window will appear crowded. Hang the curtain rod higher above the top of the window; you may even go as low as a few inches below the ceiling to make a regular-sized window appear larger.

Extend the curtain rod beyond the window’s breadth to hang the curtain panels just outside the window’s width. This strategy creates the illusion of extra window space behind the curtains, and the height makes the entire wall appear larger.

Use three-person groups.

Stick to groups of three when decorating a bookcase, mantle, or console table. For groupings, odd numbers look ideal, and the height of each piece should be varied.

Start with one tall skinny item, then add a medium wide item next to it, and finish with a small accent.

For large pieces, stick to classics.

Trends come and go, so don’t spend a lot of money on something that will be outdated before a year has passed. However, if you stick to smaller accessories, you can still have fun with current stuff.

Classic and neutral components such as the sofa, your bed, an area rug, and the coffee table should endure the test of time. Throw pillows, decorative items, and table lamps can then be used to add trendy patterns and bright color.
