What you hang on your walls says a lot about who you are. Blank walls can make you feel like you’re living in a hotel – nice looking but impersonal.

And with the right kind of art, pictures and wall décor pieces, you can give your home a personality of its own. Here are some tips and tricks to help you get started.

1. The One Basic Rule To Follow

For some strange reason, a lot of people like hanging their wall décor pieces way higher than the eye level. But there’s actually a rule to this. Most art dealers and gallery owners swear by the 60 inches rule.

Measure up 60 inches from the floor and mark the spot on the wall. This spot is where the center of your décor piece should be.

And if you are hanging the art piece above furniture, then you will need to leave around 6 -8 inches of space above it.

2. Put Up A Statement Piece

An easy way to decorate a large wall space is to put up a single large piece, that can be your statement piece. It doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive. But it needs to be something you really like.

You can even think of getting an oversized mirror framed in a rustic-looking wooden or metal frame.

This one work of art won’t just give your plain wall some character, but it can also act as a good conversation starter.

3. Show It All Off

Another way of decorating a bare wall is to turn it into a gallery wall. Which essentially means that you’ll be using a lot of different pieces of art instead of relying on one single piece to do the job for you.

A gallery wall can house many different things like an oddly shaped mirror, an old quirky clock, a musical instrument – you name it.

There are two ways of going about creating your gallery wall. You can either hang a central piece and keep adding stuff all around it, or create a plan before you begin nailing them on to the wall. It’s a good idea to keep the arrangement interesting instead of following a grid-like pattern.
