So you want to create a gallery wall, but you don’t know where to start hanging? The wonderful people at Apartment Therapy have your solution.

In their article, they stress the best height to hang your picture is 57” on center, meaning the middle of your frame should be 57” from the floor. Time and again we see artwork framed too high in beautiful spaces and this rule of thumb handsomely resolves the issue.

Not only is 57” the customary height for museums and galleries, it stands as the average eye-level height for the human eye. How can we argue with science? Hanging artwork above your sofa then crafts a greater harmony among your furniture and accent pieces, and provides a standard and consistency for your artwork and décor throughout your home.

So what is the answer for a picture perfect gallery wall? Use the 57” rule at the center of the grouping. After all, we want every picture in your home at its level best.
