Wall Art Too

Have you ever walked into someone’s home and known that a tall person or someone on a ladder made the decision where to hang the artwork? Have you gone into a room and felt uncomfortable, without really knowing why? Something just wasn’t quite right, but you couldn’t put your finger on it.

As a professional home stager in St. Charles, IL, it is critical to be able to identify these and other issues in a room to eliminate this uneasy feeling and instead make a house embrace whomever walks through its doors. It’s knowing and applying the basic rules of design to a space that will eliminate these uncomfortable feelings.

How high do you hang wall art? What size rug do you need? How do you know what size light fixture to select? These are some of the questions I repeatedly get asked by clients. Having the answers to these and other design questions in the form of a quick reference guide will make your decorating easier and create the results you desire.

I’ve compiled this information to create my Cheat Sheet for Home Decor. You can use it before going shopping so you know the dimensions you need to fit your space. No guess-work. It’s all there in black and white. Using these guidelines will help you pull your spaces together like a professional.
