Some picture hanging tips for you today:
- Hang a painting about 65 inches off the floor if there is no furniture around and center it on the wall it's going on. 65 inches is considered the center of the eye for an average person.
- If the painting is to be hung in a dining room, you can go a little lower since people will view the painting from a seated position.
- If you are hanging a painting over a sofa or a buffet, hang it 6-8 inches above the back of the piece. That will help connect it to the grouping and not have it floating in space.
- If you are hanging a group of paintings, space them about 2-4 inches apart to keep them as one cohesive unit.
- If you hang a painting with two hangers instead of just one, you won't need to always be straightening it, since it won't slide around as easily as when you just have one hook.
