How to Decide on Which Wall to Hang Art

It can be confusing deciding on which wall to hang art. There are many different methods for hanging art, and they all look beautiful, but how do you know which one is best for you? Thankfully, there are some simple guidelines you can use to help you determine the best placement for your pieces. You should also take into account the size of your pieces and the proportions of your room. For instance, an enormous painting in a small room can overwhelm the space. Similarly, hanging artwork near a window that receives a lot of sunlight can ruin a valuable piece of art.

Before hanging your art, you should consider the size of your piece and the height of your focal point. The height of your art should be 57 inches or so, divided by two. This will help you determine the height of the art piece, as well as the overall size of the frame. For example, the painting and the frame of Interior au Bourgeois is 34 inches tall, but they have a width of 17 inches.

Another rule for hanging art is the 57-inch rule. The 57-inch rule applies if you’re installing art directly over furniture. It’s also important to make sure that you leave eight to ten inches of space between the furniture and the bottom of your artwork. In a gallery-style arrangement, photos can be displayed alongside other mediums. For the best result, choose photos with a similar color scheme as the rest of your art.
