Finding the right art for your space is hard, but hanging art correctly can be even more difficult. In fact, hanging artwork incorrectly at the wrong height is the #1 most common interior design mistake! Read on to find out 3 foolproof tips for hanging art!


Hang single artwork pieces at eye level

I find it’s best to hang single artwork at eye level, and 60 inches from center to the floor is the magic number.


If you’re hanging your art above furniture, it can be 4-6 inches above the piece, and if the art is going above a sofa or console, the piece should be approximately 2/3 width of the furniture. As a general rule of thumb, always consider the scale of your space when hanging art.


I usually prefer to use larger artwork and frames rather than smaller in projects. It’s much more simple to fill in spaces when you have less space to fill!


Treat two pieces as one

When hanging two art pieces, treat them as one and still hang them 60 inches from the floor to the center of the grouping.


This rule also applies to groups of three and four. Make sure they are spaced only a few inches apart, so they look together and not disconnected.


Hang Gallery Walls with cohesive spacing

When designing a grid gallery wall, I use prints and photos with a similar theme and consistent frames. They could be black and white photos, botanicals, sketches, etc.


I go with completely different pieces in mixed frames for an eclectic look. I usually hang large and medium pieces 2-3 inches apart, and smaller pieces 1.5-2.5 inches apart.


Make things easier on your end by tracing the frames on a piece of paper and using painters tape to create a layout on the wall before you have to put holes in the wall.

We might not notice it, but the time you spend in the bathroom often marks the start or end of significant periods in the day, whether that be getting a fresh start in the morning or winding down after bringing your A game. It might not be the centre of attention compared to other parts of your home, but there are plenty of ways to make it just as, if not more, tasteful as the rest of the house!


TILE CREATIVITY

There are thousands of choices to pick from when it comes to tiling in the bathroom, whether you decide to use that for an entire expanse of wall, the flooring, or just as a decorative element. Apart from the various colours that are available, there are multiple options when it comes to layout, such as a basketweave look or floor-to-ceiling look.


METALLIC ACCENTS

This look gets away in just about any other room, from the kitchen to the bedroom, so why not bring it into the bathroom as well? Ranging in choices from mirror frames to door handles, faucets, there lies an amazing spectrum of options when it comes to spicing up particular sections of the bathroom. Be careful not to overdo it though!


MIXED MATERIALS

Although things can start to get out of hand when you try to incorporate everything, having a good amount of contrast in materials can be very refreshing to the eye. A contemporary look is often met by striking a balance between the use of stone, glass, and even wood for different components of the bathroom. 


MINIMALISM

An ongoing trend continues to lean towards the minimalistic use of materials, feature pieces, and colours. Keep in mind that minimalism doesn’t have to contradict with variety, so let your creativity shine while still keeping in mind what the essentials truly are. Simple color schemes on the spectrum of black to white are consistently popular, as well as sleek cabinets that keep everything out of sight.
