Quick Tips

Hang artwork at eye level.

Avoid hanging multiple pieces too close together.

Artwork should span 2/3 the width of furniture that sits below it.

Hanging Single Pieces of Art

Hang at eye level, keeping the midpoint approximately 60" above the floor.

When hanging above a piece of furniture, keep 4-6" of space below the bottom of the frame.

Grouping Multiple Pieces of Art Together

Treat multiple pieces as one.

Keep them at eye level, roughly 60" from the center of the grouping to the floor.

Leave 2-5" of space between each piece.

Ledges & Wall Shelves

Keep the display at eye level, roughly 60" from the center of the grouping to the floor.

For a single ledge display, start with one key piece that will be your focal point, and position it slightly off center.

Layer additional pieces around your focal piece, varying size and spacing between them. 

For a multiple ledge display, use smaller art pieces.
