1. Hang Art at The Right Height
Hanging artwork too high is one of the most common decorating mistakes. Hanging artwork above furniture like a sofa or console should not be more than six to nine inches from the top. If no furniture is under the art, it should be at eye level. Hold the artwork center at your own eye level to get a good idea of where the art should hang. The average height is 5'8", so that is typically where art should be centered on a wall. If you want to create a gallery wall, start with the first piece at the correct height and grow the artwork from there.
