Picture Hanging Tips Photo

For our money, hanging a framed picture or painting on a wall is one of the most challenging decorating tasks. It's not hard, but it's tricky to get it to look right!

Here's a good rule of thumb to follow: when hanging a piece, measure the overall height of the frame, then divide the frame into three equal sections. The line between the middle and top sections should be 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 9 inches off the ground.

This rule works in just about all cases, though you might have to fudge the hang line up or down a tad depending on the design of the artwork.
