ART HANGING GUIDE
THE RIGHT HEIGHT
Many make the mistake of hanging their art too high. The center of your artwork should fall at about the viewer's eye level. A good rule of thumb is to hang your art so the mid-point is about 57 inches high. Depending on your space you can hang it a little higher or lower. Shown here is Pink Ice Cream Truck, Blue Mr Softee, and Doughnuts by Jane Zweibel.
THE RIGHT WIDTH
If you're hanging artwork above furniture, such as a dresser, the width of the artwork should take up about 2/3 to 4/5 the width of the furniture. For example, if your dresser is 60" long, your artwork should take up at least 40" in width (this includes sets of art). This is not a hard set rule and you may have to go bigger or smaller depending on the space. Shown here is Mid Mod Flower No. 7 and Mid Mod Flower No. 4 by Annie Bailey.
THE RIGHT SPACING
If you're planning on hanging artwork next to each other, we recommend spacing the artwork about 3" to 6" apart. Gallery walls may have artwork spaced a little closer (sometimes as close as 2"). Same as our other "rules", these measurements can be played with depending on the space. Shown here is Soft Abstract I and II by Dan Hobday.
THE RIGHT DISTANCE
When placing artwork above a piece of furniture we recommend hanging it about 4" to 8" above the piece. You may have to hang it higher if you have multiple decor items displayed on the furniture below. Often customers will hang artwork too high, which disconnects the art from the furniture. Shown is Girl With Sailboat by Leah Straatsma.
