Hanging a picture can be a complicated process. From choosing the right spot, to making sure that the picture matches the rest of the décor, you need to spend some time ensuring that you are making the right decisions.
One of the rules of thumb you can follow is always following the “57 center” rule. This rule, which is used by museum curators, states that the center of any piece of art or photograph should be 57 inches from the floor. This method ensures that a picture is hung at the average person’s eye level – which is between 63 to 66 inches. If you hang things too high, either people will not notice the piece or it will create a physical disturbance in the room. We know that this is not always practical in a home, as you have furniture or multiple images to hang, but it is a great place to start.
