Art is the easiest way to add style, personality and color to a space, and, if hung incorrectly, the easiest way to make things look off. Hanging a piece too high is probably the most common mistake, say designers. It should be hung at eye level. Art should be hung so that the middle of the piece is 57 to 60 inches above the floor. If ceilings are tall, you can go a little higher for balance. If you are trying to hang a grouping or gallery, consider the middle of your grouping as the center. Also, make sure you pit the right sized piece in the appropriate place. One or two small pieces above a sofa is not going feel right compared to a larger piece. Speaking of larger pieces, big art can be hung so that the frames bottom is 8 to 10 inches above the sofa back.
It might be one of the last things people think about in a home, lighting, however, is critical to a pleasant environment. Generally, bad lighting equals bad design. Relying on one source of lighting like a ceiling fixture is never a good idea. Different types of lighting need to have different purposes: task lighting, ambient lighting and general lighting. Evaluating a space and deciding on what type of lighting it needs is an important design decision. In addition to a ceiling fixture, a room needs mid-level lighting for warmth and tasks like reading. Some spaces way benefit from ambient lighting that helps create a mood. Accent lights are important for highlighting special accessories or art. and, regardless of how many different types you incorporate, placement is also important. Making sure that lighting casts the proper shadows is vital to effective illumination and remember, dimmer switches are your best friend.
