What is the right height to hang a picture?


Q: What is the right height to hang a picture?

A: As a rule of thumb, when pictures are mostly seen by people who are standing in areas such as hallways and foyers, hang your artwork so the center of the picture hangs at 60” to 66” (152-168 cm) from the floor. This is a comfortable height for most people, whether you’re over 6’ 3” or 5’ 6”. When you're hanging pictures in a room where you spend most of your time sitting, you'll need to judge the right height from a sitting position. Sit across from where you would like to hang your picture, and have someone move it up and down until you find the best position.
