Everyone has artworks and photos hanging on the walls but not everyone hangs and places them right. This may be a hard task until you find out the unspoken rules that help you. This roundup is dedicated to these rules and some examples to apply them in any space, and after reading that you’ll place your wall art right. Ready? Let’s start!

Choose The Artwork Of A Proper Size

Though the hottest current trend is oversized artworks, first of all, find out what size of artwork you can place in the space. If the piece is too big or too small, it will look inappropriate. If you’re putting the wall art directly over a piece of furniture, choose an artwork, which is slightly shorter on either side than your furniture piece. If you are going to hang an artwork on a standalone wall, the piece should take up four-sevenths of the wall on which it is placed. To find out how much it is, measure the length and width of the wall, then multiply each number by 0.571, which is four-sevenths as a decimal. Voila!

Find Out The Height

All artworks are supposed to be hanging at eye level but people with different height have different eye level, so how to choose a proper height? The general rule nowadays is the center of a piece of art should be 57 inches from the floor. Find the center of your artwork measuring the height and dividing it in two. Now measure the distance from the picture wire or nail hook to the top of the frame. Subtract that distance from half of the picture’s height, and finally, add your result to 57. But don’t forget that if your room has really high ceilings, hang your wall art accordingly, math isn’t always the only thing you should keep in mind.
