How are you hanging yours

There is a much more simple way to do it. The general rule of thumb, is to hang your art at eye level. That is, the centre of your picture/art should be at the height of MOST people’s eyes. Now, if you’re eight feet tall or three feet tall, you have to take that with a grain of salt. Maybe hang your pictures at the average height of most people you know.

Further to that, keep in mind what most people will be doing in that room. IE; if its the dining room , most of the time people will be seated…so, yep, you guessed it, you should hang your pictures down lower to accommodate for the seated position. In the hallway, people will usually be walking though, so you hang things a bit higher.
