Decor Tips

Expand a Small Room
One way to expand a small room is to hang a large landscape print with a faraway horizon. This will create the illusion of more space.


Broaden a Narrow Room
Paint one wall a darker, richer color. Hang an exciting print on that wall, then hang a custom framed mirror on the opposite wall. The reflected art will make the room appear wider.


Heighten a Low Ceiling
In a room with a low ceiling try using a darker floorcovering. Then choose a light color to use on both the ceiling and walls to draw the eye upward. Hang prints with strong vertical lines to heighten the ceilings. Using portrait format (taller than wider) will add to the sense of height.


Warm up a Stark Space
Warm up a stark space by using Country-inspired prints. Mix the prints with antiques, quilts and country accessories for a cozier feeling.


Fresh Air for a Cramped Room
Do you have a room that is small, dark, and cramped? Introduce a breath of fresh air with some beautiful prints to bring the outdoors in and brighten space with bursts of color.


Lengthen a Room
Hang prints with strong horizontal lines to create the illusion of increased length in your room. For best results use the landscape style format and prints with light expansive colors (several prints in a row compound the effect.) Panoramic vistas work very well for this situation.


Room Without Windows
Use prints to open up a space in rooms with few or no windows. Landscapes, windows and doorways lead the eye outward to create the illusion of added space and light.
