The Perfect Height for Hanging a Picture
Twenty20

You finally got around to sorting through your wedding photos. Heck, you even had a few of them framed and now…they’re sitting at the foot of your bed because you don’t know where to hang them. And to be honest, it’s a crapshoot every single time. 

But according to the authors of How to Hang a Picture, and Other Essential Lessons for the Stylish Home, the best place to hang your photo (or chosen work of art) is 57 inches from the floor.

Why? It's the average line of sight for most people—give or take a couple inches. So get thee a tape measure and get to hanging, using the center of your artwork as a marker.

Building a gallery wall? Always start with your largest photo and use that to anchor the smaller pieces around it.
