How high should I hang a picture above my sofa?

Great question!  The ideal height to hang a picture is one of the most common question people ask. Most people hand artwork too high.  The general rule of thumb is to hang your artwork so that the subject of the picture (usually in the middle) is centered to the eye level of the viewer.  Because people come in all different heights, shoot for about 5’8  which is usually a good height.  That said, if the picture will be going in the living room in an area where people will be sitting, the ideal artwork height will be a bit lower than it would be in a foyer or hallway.

The size of the artwork should relate to its surroundings.
A small picture on a large empty wall will get lost, while a large picture will overwhelm a small wall. Pictures should be smaller than the furniture over which they hang above. For example, a large painting hanging over a tiny table will look unbalanced and top heavy. Your picture should hang between 4″-8″ above the back of the table.

Picture Ideas

If you don’t have a picture large enough to hang over your large furniture or large walls consider hanging pictures in groups.

I love working with recycled material be it teabags, parts from electric component or recycled           paint. I gives me satisfaction that I’m repurposing something instead of  putting it into the land fill sites

                                                                   

This painting has pieces of metal that I found on the beach. The decayed maple depicts just a small part of the destruction that we have created with our waste and pollution in the environment.
