How to Hang Your Wall Art

So you’ve finally chosen that amazing artwork of mine. Now, all that’s left is figuring out where and how to hang your beautiful piece, which may seem precarious at first. 

When it comes to the placement of your wall art, there are two main things to consider: the size of the piece and the best height to hang it at. First off you’ll want your wall art to complement the space which means it should be appropriately sized for the spot you choose.

As a general rule of thumb, your wall art should take up between 50-75% of the available wall space. This means a big piece is usually needed to fill up a big space, such as above the couch or fireplace, for example, otherwise, your artwork will look out of place.

if you have a smaller piece, you can either place it somewhere with less available wall space, lean it on a shelf or even pair it with other pieces to create an eye-catching gallery wall.

For the most aesthetically pleasing decor, you should aim to have the center of your artwork roughly at eye level. While this may sound a bit discretionary since heights vary, approximately 57 -62 inches off the floor, to the center of the mage. which is the standard for art galleries. Also, if you’re hanging your piece above furniture, give it some room to breathe by hanging it between 6 to 12 inches above the top of the furniture.
