‘Today on Inside the Studio, I’m answering YOUR interior design frequently asked questions!
A couple of weeks ago, I asked my blog readers to submit and email a list of their biggest mysteries in interior design so that i could help shed some light on what they were looking for.
You guys asked – and I’m here to answer!!
A: When purchasing a chandelier to go over the dining room table, try to make sure it is 2/3 or 3/4 the size of the table. This will give you the best visual effect without the chandelier looking to big (or too small).
A: A standard, professionally hung chandelier is 30-24 inches above the tabletop (when you have an 8-foot ceiling). Bring that number up proportionately for hanging chandelier with high ceilings.
A: Start with the cabinets; then you can start picking the fun stuff like counter tops, backs plash, and appliances!
A: the center point of the artwork should be around 57 inches from the floor. That being said, If you’re doing a gallery wall or a grouping of multiple artworks, you’ll want to make sure the layout and composition are interesting and well-planned.
A: No!! It’s better to have complementary, interesting furniture pieces than to have an all-in-one bedding set.
For example An upholstered headboard, white lacquer nightstands, and a vintage dresser you found at an estate sale and restored.
A: Usually, the artwork midpoint should be 57″ off the floor. In this case, center the artwork between the tile midpoint and the ceiling height (for 8-foot ceilings).
If your ceilings are higher than 8 feet, you might need to hang your artwork lower.
A: It’s difficult to judge this without seeing the room, but I like the sound of having one larger piece of artwork over the toilet.
If the artwork and mirror are similar in size, they will be too uniform to look interesting. It is better to break up the mirror wall into two smaller pieces.
