Art adds personality to your home and color to your walls, but does it always have to be hung the same way? If following these time-tested hanging rules is starting to feel a bit blah, break the mold and lean your art!
Leaning art adds dimension, texture and visual appeal to any room, plus it gives you all of the color with none of the commitment! Easily move pieces from room to room without worrying about damaging drywall or patching holes. To make your lean look intentional, stack books below the piece or lean the art on a bench or table. Small paintings or photographs look best when they’re layered or stacked, while large mirrors and paintings can generally hold their own.
Tip: Leaning large pieces of art or a mirror along the floor is an easy way to hide ugly wall outlets.
