Picture is one of the things that can be used to add more decorative look of a particular room. Determining the height when hanging the pictures takes a great deal in creating a proportional look. Below, there are some considerations on determining how high to hang pictures so that they can look wonderful and do not disturb our sight.
First thing that will be your consideration on how high to hang pictures is that the pictures should be hung at the eye level. The problem is that everyone has different eye level since their height of their body is also different. The common center-line of a picture is about 5’6” above the floor. However, if you think that this measurement is not appropriate, you can hang it higher or lower some inches. Do not hang the picture too high because it will make the people who see it feel uncomfortable.
If the pictures are hanging on your dining room or your office wall, you should not use the measurement above. You must lower the height at the eye level when you are seating since everyone will enjoy the pictures while they are dining or seated. It will also be appreciated if you do the same thing to your children’s room at their early age. Most of them are interested in pictures and if you hang the pictures too high, it will disturb their sight. They have to struggle just to see the pictures which is much higher than their own height.
If you hang the picture above furniture, you should give some space about 4 inches between them. Do not hang it too high or too low to avoid the people loosing their focus of the picture. Assuming groups of pictures as one piece is the last consideration on how high to hang pictures on your room. You must consider the measurement carefully, including the space between them. You can create a “box” look by using the same size of pictures and consistently spacing between them, or “mosaic” look by using different size of pictures.
