How to Position a Frame on a Wall

from $4.99

It can be difficult to group together frames of different shapes and sizes. Before choosing where to place a frame, consider the lighting, the purpose of the room, the number of frames on the same wall and the assortment you’ve chosen.

How to position frames on a wall

Suggestions for arranging multiple frames and paintings

In a straight line: For a hallway or a long expanse of wall, position frames of different heights and widths in a straight line by placing the centre of the images at the same level. Alternate between long and short frames to create a nice symmetry. Make sure that the frames placed at each end are both either long or both short.

Two parallel lines: Similar to the straight line. This arrangement places frames in the bottom row approximately 2 in. (5 cm) below the ones in the top row.

Symmetric: Frames are positioned symmetrically in relation to an imaginary vertical or horizontal line. This arrangement is ideal over a low piece of furniture. It is easier to create symmetry by first placing the largest frames.

Mosaic: The paintings are positioned together to represent a virtual geometric shape that becomes obvious when seen from a distance.

 

  • Avoid placing a single small frame on a large section of wall. Instead, centre it between two windows or two pieces of furniture.
  • Frames and paintings are often hung too high. The ideal height is 1.6 m (63 in.) from the ground. To determine the proper height for a frame, take optical laws into account and remember that the further away a frame is, the more it will appear distorted to the eye.
  • It is generally suitable to hang a frame at the midpoint of a wall in a living room or a dining room, and at eye level in a hallway. Proper positioning of a frame will add an interesting visual component to your decor.
