An interior design expert has revealed how to make your home look more expensive in minutes – and all you have to do is make one simple change.

Julie Sousa has spent years working in the home decorating and content creation industry and often shares tips on how to spruce up your homes online.

The expert recently shared that having the wrong size artwork on the walls instantly makes the space look cheaper.

Instead, Sousa recommended using a simple calculation to measure the ideal frame for your walls, and thousands of people admit that it “saved” their living rooms.

‘Multiply the wall length by 0.60 to get the minimum length needed, then multiply the wall length by 0.75 to get the maximum length. Both numbers will serve as a range for the appropriate length of your artwork. Repeat these steps for width,” he advised.

The expert recently shared that having the wrong size artwork on the walls instantly makes the space look cheaper.

The interior designer showed an example of a wall in her home where she replaced a small piece of art with a larger one.

His piece change immediately made the area more eye-catching.

The rule also helps when your artwork or photo frame is too large for the walls and draws attention to the rest of the room.

Ms. Sousa provided some more tips for different scenarios.

‘In a narrow hallway, I would suggest using mirrors; Unless there is an entry point where your body looks directly at the art, then the art is a good option. And yes, the same dimensions would apply,’ he advised.

The expert also revealed that if you have a piece of furniture, such as a console table, attached to the wall, it is important to measure only the empty space and not the entire wall.

‘If you have a piece of furniture against a wall, the calculations would only be for the wall space above the piece of furniture. Maybe go for a smaller dimension, closer to 0.60, to leave enough negative space around the edges,” he added.

Use this simple calculation to determine the ideal range for a piece of art in your home.

Hundreds of people were amazed by his simple advice.

‘I have to say that’s absolutely phenomenal advice!’ one said.

“It looks really expensive now,” added another.

‘Perfect scale for the artwork! It looks so much better!’ said a third.
