Low Hung Art

Generally we tend to hang our wall art at eye level, right? It makes sense and it just tends to be the way everyone does it. Of course, there is more than one way to do most things, and hanging art is no different.

Back in past eras whole walls were often filled with art from crown moulding to skirting boards and while I don't think this look will hit the main-stream again, many design conscious home owners are playing with the placement of their art. Today, let's look at low hung art.

Hanging art on the lower half of a wall adds interest and intrigue. It forces the viewers eye downward, which can change the perception of the room's dimensions, and it also draws in one's attention. It is a clever tool to use for directing the eye around a space and creating interesting points of refuge too.

So when thinking about hanging art in your space, why not consider placing it low on a wall, or even propping it up on the floor, for a unique and interesting display!?
