Hanging Pictures at Eye Level – What Does That Really Mean?

When it comes to hanging pictures, the standard rule of ‘hang at eye level’ can be pretty confusing. Especially if you’re 5’6″ and your partner is 6’4″.

Whose Eye Level is the right choice? His or Hers?

If she hung all the pictures at her eye level – that’s what it would look like.

On the other hand, can you imagine if he was to hang all the artwork in the house at his eye level? She’d get a sore neck trying to see them.

So who is right? Him or Her?.

For the sake of domestic bliss, and beautifully decorated walls, it’s not about winning. Instead, it’s about finding the perfect height that everyone will be happy with – so meet in the middle.

Here’s How

For pictures that will be viewed from a standing position such as in hallways or an entryway, the best rule of thumb is to position your artwork so the center hangs at 60″ to 66″ from the floor. This never fail rule works for everyone.
