"How to" guide for wall art print placement

June 16, 2020

Have you ever wondered how high you're supposed to hang your wall art prints on the wall? Or how far apart you should place your frames from one another? Here are basic guides for beginners.  Once you're comfortable, you can break the rules.


In the example above, artwork should be 6-8" above the furniture.


The centre of the wall art print should be 57-60" above the floor.


Wall art prints should be around 3" apart and fill 2/3 the width of the furniture.


When hanging wall art prints above furniture, aim to position it approximately 6-8" above the furniture. When hanging artwork too high, it feels disconnected from the furniture and looks as though it's floating.

If you're hanging wall art prints on an empty wall, hang it approximately 57-60" from the floor to the center of your artwork. It should be eye level for an average height woman.

If you're working with multiple frames or creating a gallery wall, position each frame approximately 3-4" apart. Keeping them close together will help the eye to see the art as one unit.

When choosing the size of artwork for your space, ensure that the artwork will fill 2/3 the width of the furniture it will hang over. If you use artwork that is too small it will not feel balanced.
