Where should picture frames be placed on the wall?

- Leave an even amount of space (about two inches) between each frame for consistency.
How do you arrange 3 picture frames on the wall?

Horizontal groupings work best for pictures of equal size. Arrange the three pictures horizontally side by side, either on their own or above a piece of furniture such as a couch. Make sure that the space between each picture is even for a horizontal grouping.
What is the formula for hanging pictures?
When hanging something at an average eye level, position its center 57 to 60 inches from the floor. Use the following formula: Divide the height of the frame by two; from that number, subtract the distance from the top of the frame to the hanging hardware; add this number to 57, 58, 59, or 60.

How do you hang pictures vertically and horizontally?
Always align horizontally from the top and vertically from the middle. This makes a cross balance that creates an equal look and the aligned rows create a visually calming vibe. Create an imaginary perimeter where you want your group of photos to be and hang them so the outer edges touch upon the established perimeter.
Should all pictures be hung at the same height?
If you hang all your photos using the 57 inches rule, then the centers of all of your frames should be at the same height, even if your collection includes pieces of different heights. Hard lines, like those created from matching the tops of the frames, can look very harsh in a room.
How do I group pictures on my wall?
One is to place a single, focal point-style piece on the wall and slowly add pictures around it to produce the grouping over time. The second is to wait and hold off until you have accumulated enough pictures, then hang them all at once.

Artwork should be centered over the furniture such as a sofa, bed or mantel. Artwork placed above a main piece of furniture in the room should be placed no more than six inches above the piece of furniture in order to make them appear cohesive.
