1. Make Sure the Artwork/Picture Fits on the Selected Wall
Take into account the size of your picture or pictures and the space you have to play with. For example, if your pictures are to go above a sofa, look at the size of the sofa in relation to your pictures. The pictures need to be large enough in height to have an impact and sit comfortably in the centre of the sofa.
In this image you can see the wall needed two pictures to balance the sofa. Otherwise just one would have looked lost.
A good tip, is to balance your chosen picture on the back of the sofa, exactly where you are thinking of hanging it. Then imagine in a little higher.
Ideally, artwork should be hung at eye level. If you’re hanging a picture above your sofa, the rule of thumb is to hang it a hand’s width higher.
You can put it up a little higher if you like it that way, but don’t hang it so far up that it can’t be appreciated properly.
