5 Steps to Hanging Art on the Wall

We understand that hanging art can be daunting, and that’s why we are going to walk you through the process of it. Of course, not everyone is the same height, therefore this formula will place your art at an average eye level. Here is the step by step guide on how to hang your art.

THE BASICS First and foremost, choose your art. Once you know what you’re going to hang then measure the top of the frame to the taut (stretched) part of the hanging wire. In the case that your wall art uses a saw tooth rather than a wire, then measure the top of the from the bottom of the saw tooth. In most cases of saw tooth, the measure is usually half an inch to an inch. As a Los Angeles wall art and Nationwide provider we will always do our best to educate our customers on the correct methods used.

MEASURING LENGTH Your art should be placed 60 inches off the floor from the center of the art. Start by measuring the top to bottom of the frame, then divide by 2. Once you have your measurement, add 60 to it. Your total will be where the top of the frame should be placed.

STEP BY STEP This may all sound confusing if you’ve never done it before, therefore follow the example below to help you better understand.

Suppose your framed art is 25 inches in length and uses saw tooth as hanging hardware.

  1. Measure the top of the frame to the bottom of the saw tooth. That would give us half an inch.
  2. Divide the length of the frame by 2. That would give us 12.5 inches.
  3. Subtract the measurement of step 1 from step 2. 12.5″ – 0.5″ would give us 12 inches.
  4. Add 60 to step 3 and that would give us 72 inches.
  5. Measure 72 inches from ground level and place the top of the frame at 72 inches.

And Voilà, there you have it. A beautiful art print hung correctly!
