How (And How High) To Hang Art
Ready to hang? Let’s get that frame up on the wall.
Grab a hammer (and the hanging hardware that came in your Framebridge box) with complete confidence: we’re here to help make sure the final result is picture-perfect.
“Just Right" Height: The 57" Rule
Art is personal and you should design your space however makes you happy.
But, as it turns out, there is an answer to the million-dollar question: “how high should I hang a frame?”
Art experts and interior designers agree: the vertical center (the middle of the frame) should sit 57” above the floor.
Why? That's eye-level for a person of average height (art is meant to be looked at!).
Hanging art above a couch, bed, or desk? The bottom of the frames should sit 7-10" above the top of the furniture.
Hanging Hardware Made Easy
