|Hanging Artwork in Diagonal Lines|
Hanging artwork in diagonal lines makes it appear more dramatic and exciting.
While artwork generally shouldn't be hung in offset arrangements, it is a useful technique in a stairwell as the floor levels change.
Strong diagonal lines -- either within a picture itself or in a line of pictures arranged on the wall -- add excitement to the composition.
Avoid hanging matching pictures in a perfect line whenever you'd like to emphasize a casual atmosphere. This works to create a dynamic diagonal line and stays away from a formal symmetrical look.
