Interior Designer Secrets
When rearranging furniture in a room, place the most comfortable and best seat in the best location and place the rest of furniture from that point.
If you paint a room white, be sure to decorate the walls with art.
The perfect view height for a piece of art is 63" above the floor.
A mirror should be hung 7" above a mantel.
Do not use colored sheers in your home.
When choosing a paint color for the ceiling, mix the trim color with 50% white for the perfect shade.
When placing a bench at the foot of the bed, it should be no less than 2" shorter than the width of the mattress.
Instead of installing a towel bar, mount 5 hooks for towels and robes 68" distance from the floor.
Do not hang a mirror between two windows. It distracts from the view.
Rooms need art more than mirrors.
Do not hang a scone light above a bathroom mirror. Scones flanking either side of a mirror project more flattering and realistic light.
Light switches should be 36" above the floor and 2" from the door casing so as not to infer with wall art.
