Hanging Art in a Room With a High Ceiling

High ceilings are fabulous for so many reasons. They make a space feel expansive and open, they allow for larger windows, and–the best part–they also leave lots of room for showing off art and photos. Our theory for  hanging art in a room with a high ceiling? Take advantage of the space! Decorate the entire wall, floor-to-ceiling. Whether you choose to hang one or two large pieces, or a bunch of smaller ones, the result will be dramatic.

Here, art is hung both low and high, giving the room a layered, finished feel.
