Framing Tip: Hanging your Art Average Height and Placement

After you have framed your art, the last step is figuring out where to hang it.  You want to make sure wherever you place it lends itself to an optimal viewing experience.  This can be tricky at times.

Firstly, you want to make sure you have plenty of wall space to hang your art.  Sometimes, a cluttered wall can distract viewers from engaging with your art.  Additionally, the industry standard for hanging art is 60 inches from the floor to the center point of your framed art.  60 inches is considered the average for height at eye-level.   Finally, make sure your art is aligned properly.  Use a level tool to ensure accuracy.

These tips come from our lead frame designer. If you have any questions or need advice on the proper height to hang and place art, please feel free to leave your comments below.
