Hanging pictures is a decorating must to create spaces that look and feel good. With so many décor elements in a room it can be hard to know what size of artwork to hang. Use this tip to calculate the size of artwork you need to create a professional look in any room.
Fill 60 - 75% of the visual space
Carve out a visual space where you want to hang your picture. For example, let’s say you want to hang art above a dominant piece of furniture to create a focal point for a room. Create a balanced look by filling about 60 - 75% of the empty space above the furniture with your art piece or arrangement.
How to calculate the size of art needed
Here is an easy way to follow the 60-75% rule and calculate the size of art you need for a space. Measure the area you want to fill, and multiply the length and height of this space by 0.7. This will give you a guideline for the height and length dimensions for a single picture for the space or the size of the footprint to fill with multiple items arranged together.
