Hanging Artwork

What a “headache”, hanging artwork!  The picture  is too large or too small for the wall.  Or its hung too high.  Maybe you have too many small accessories that clutter a space instead of a larger pieces that makes an impact.  Hopefully, these guidelines will help when your ready to hang your artwork.

Living Room-60-65 inches from the floor to the center of the art.

Hallway-slightly higher than 65 inches in “standing” rooms.

Dining Room-slightly lower than 60 inches in a  “sitting room”.

Grouped pieces- bottom frame should be 6-12 inches from the top of the couch.
