Hanging Artwork

Did You Know…

Artwork placement on a wall can be daunting!  If artwork is placed too high or too low, then no one can truly appreciate the piece. Keep these rules of thumb in mind.  If you have a single piece of art, hang the piece so the center is hung at your eye level.  Artwork over cabinets or console tables should be hung so the bottom of the frame is 6 to 8 inches above the back of the piece.  If you have a sofa, large pieces or groups of art should be 2/3 to 3/4 the total width of a sofa, no longer.
