There are plenty of hacks for making your home look more expensive, even if you’re on a budget. However, if you have any art hanging on your walls, the easiest way to step it up is with an art light.

An art light, or a picture light, sits on the wall over the top of your artwork. Essentially, it shines on your artwork as if it were in a gallery. It’s also so easy to install that it’s no wonder the hack has blown up on TikTok. For example, @isabellasloft shared a video with art lights decorating her home, and it’s been viewed more than 315,000 times. In addition to placing the lights over art, she recommends installing them above mirrors in your home.

If you’re like, that’s cool — but how do I actually install an art light? You’ll be glad to know that most of the lights getting shared on TikTok are battery-powered, rechargeable and come with an on/off remote control. There’s no hardwiring required. If you can hang a picture, you can hang one of these art lights.

Fortunately, they don’t cost a lot either. You can get the FUNCHDAY Wireless Picture Light for $37.99. Simply charge it up and hang it over your wall art.

It’s important to note that this hack works best with larger art pieces. Coincidentally, that’s another home decor tip TikTokers are all about. Large works of art are usually costly, so they look more expensive hanging in your home. (However, you can always DIY an abstract piece for less.)

If you want to upgrade your home to make it look and feel more luxe, consider hanging a $40 art light in your hallway, living room or over your bedroom mirror.
