Style your walls with flare! 6 basic rules to displaying art in your home

I love to display art in my home (who’d of guessed!).

But the struggle is real my friend, how do you get your art to look like it fits on the wall?

You’ve all seen it before, sometimes the art is so big its over bearing and then sometimes its so small it gets lost in the abyss of empty wall space.

If we choose the wrong size piece of art we run the risk of making our room feel our of balance. Lets not leave our walls naked!

Follow these 7 rules to hanging art on walls like a pro.

1) SPACE Wall art should take up 60%- 75% of the blank wall space.


When an art piece sits over the top of furniture, such as a couch or bed, it should be between 2/3 to 3/4 of the width of the furniture


Wall art that is 41 inches or larger in height or width should stand alone as focal points of a wall or room.

4)SIMPLE If you are hanging a large piece of art on the wall, make sure the furnishings around it are simple. This is so the art can remain the focus of the room.


If you only have a few small pieces, then group them together to create a ‘gallery affect’. Try to keep the center of the gallery at eye level.

6) EYE LEVEL As a general rule of thumb, for the most aesthetically pleasing décor, you should hang artwork at eye level.
