Hanging framed art too high
Most people consider a crooked picture frame a major pet peeve. But for some, having art hung too high, whether floating high above a bed or couch is a deal breaker. The good news is that this problem is one of the easiest to fix. Want a hassle-free to improve the look of your home? Walk through your home and inspect your home’s art hanging heights and see where they can be nudged down an inch or two.
Not hanging art properly
Speaking of crooked art, are you only hanging your frames with one nail which is why it’s always tilting to one side every time someone leaves or enters the room? While bolting every frame into the walls is unnecessary, you shouldn’t neglect knowing the right kind of tools and hardware your art pieces need to hang properly.

Your home décor is the best way for you to break free from the rigid confines of color palettes, which is why you shouldn’t be stuck thinking you can only display art that complements the rest of your space. Moreover, stop sticking to the usual way of displaying art. Experiment and explore different ways to display them! Lean a couple of frames instead of hanging them; put them against the back of your couch, display them in the bathroom, beside each other, or on top of a dresser.

Forgetting to layer
Layering doesn’t just pertain to clothing; it also applies to displaying art. Your frames don’t need to be displayed perfectly; your home isn’t an art gallery! So go ahead; place a floor lamp in front of a framed photo, or allow a few leaves of an indoor plant to sneak-in in front of a painting. Connecting your art with the rest of your surroundings not only makes your home look more homey, it also creates a more sophisticated space.
