Rigid rules are not always useful. Before hammering in a nail or drilling a hole, take a closer look at the whole room, its furniture and the distance between single pieces. If there is a door very close to the new pictures, try to put the upper print border on the same level as the door frame.
Other possible reference points to hand your poster could be, for example, these interior objects:
- fireplace: if you a fireplace in your living room, a print placed centrally above it will add harmony to the room. However, be careful not to hang it too close to the fireplace and thus expose it to direct heat.
- cabinet: framed prints work best when placed above low cupboards and shelves. Either hang the prints in the middle or align them with an outer edge.
- window frames: the natural light coming from the window accentuates the colours of the photographs. Be creative when setting the height of the print.
- same height as a TV: you might have already set your TV at the perfect height for watching it from the sofa. Do the same with the pictures on the wall and adjust the position of the photo frames to the eye level in a sitting position.
Paying attention to the large objects in the room will guarantee you a harmonious look of your personal picture wall.
