A great rule when hanging pictures is always hang your artwork at 145cm on centre. Meaning the middle of your artwork is always at 145cm. 145cm represents
the average human eye height and is often used as a standard in galleries and museums.
A big mistake people often make is to hang artwork too high. Artwork should “talk” or connect to the other elements such as furniture, rugs and lighting.
Hanging artwork and photos lower than usual will also give the impression of taller ceilings.
When hanging artwork relative to furniture or fireplace, position the bottom edge of
the framed art 20-25cm above the sofa or mantle, again this ensures that the artwork
connects with the furniture piece.
A “Gallery Wall” of pictures is a great way to create impact especially on a larger wall. Hanging pictures and photographs together can require practice
to achieve an overall balance. You may like to position the grouping on the floor first moving pieces and seeing what works best together before committing
to holes in walls. Again, think of your gallery as one picture and hang your centre piece first at 145cm then surround them with the rest of the group.
