How to Hang Artwork At the Right Height

Posted by Andie on October 5, 2018

One of the most common design mistakes out there, that I see all the time, is hanging artwork way too high on the wall.  It's easy to do!  I'd say the majority of the population is guilty of this (I have been, too!).  Most homes in America are full of artwork that would look a lot better if it was rehung about 6-12 inches lower on the wall.  Here are a few tips to help you make sure your art is hung at the right height....

1. Hang your artwork at eye level
This can usually easily be done, by measuring 55-60 inches from the floor, and having that spot be at the center of where your painting or gallery wall is hung.  Resist the impulse to feel like you need to cover the entire wall.  It's okay if there is empty space above the art up to the ceiling- that means you are probably hanging your art at the proper level.

2. Close the gap between your artwork and furniture
Instinct might tell you to put a couple of feet between the top of your sofa and the bottom of a painting, but don't trust it!  If you are hanging a piece of art above a sofa or a console table, the bottom of the frame should only be 4-6 inches above the sofa.  Closer together looks so much better!
