At home, you can make your own display rules by mixing and matching small and large pieces, blending art with photography or showing off some of your children’s creations. Worried about how to hang pieces? With a little practice, you can be an expert.


Start by following this rule for displaying art:

Hang pieces at eye level. Most galleries hang their art at average eye level, about 58 inches high. The center of the artwork – not the top of the piece – should be at that height. This means you need to do some math: Measure the distance between the wire and the top of the frame, then measure the height of the art and divide it in half. Measure 58 inches on the wall, add the measurement of half the art’s height and subtract the distance between the wire and the top of the frame. Put the nail there.
